Launching your site is not the end of a process. Every website that stays productive and relevant needs care and maintenance. At the end of our work together, I will leave you with a checklist. Most clients use that for a while and then fall off keeping up with a site maintenance schedule (mostly because they have many other important things to work on). When you use my support services, it’s off your to do list and done for you. See the details.
We’ll discuss your project funding goals at our strategy meeting. The mission of It’s Grave is to bring websites to organizations that often don’t have funding but have a community that supports them. Many small donations often fund a whole project. If for some reason you aren’t able to meet your goals during your build, you’ll have the option to future give over time. I’m as invested in your success as your community is.
Here’s where It’s Grave is unique. Funding will not get in the way of building your website. I take on a few clients at a time so I can give them exceptional service. Funding is a constant issue for most companies, so I have taken that out of the equation. You can find details on the How It Works page but in a nutshell: websites are time consuming and costly to launch. Of course you can build one free, and maybe you’ve been spending time doing that. Having someone collaborate with you saves you tons in time and headaches. That’s why I use Patreon.
Because of the approach I use, the expectation is that you, your community, your supporters, will help fund your website project. A unique part of my approach is, during our Strategy meeting we will outline how you can introduce your site to your supporters and community to help gain interest in your site project, and funding for your project will grow alongside other organizations who have community support funding their site projects. Patrons get perks, and updates on progress so they stay invested in your project.
Funding is made using Patreon. All projects have funding goals associated with them.

Websites are labor intensive to build and launch and can cost anywhere from $2,000, to well above $10,000. You already know you can find free tools online to build your site. Having someone collaborate with you who knows the tools will save you a lot of time. Funding a website with It’s Grave is very simple.

Chances are by the time you’ve gotten in touch with me, you’ve known you wanted to start or fix up your site for a very long time. As familiar as I am with the process, it’s important we are both aligned with the vision, the plan and the goals. The value of a project plan is a bit like having a map handy. The place we want to get to won’t change, but the route we take may vary a little as we go along, barring significant late changes. So I use a light project plan that has goals and suggested deadlines. The project plan includes everything it will take to get to our destination of launching your site, but allows for changes when needed. After our Strategy meeting when you approve the project plan it is our map. It’s important to note that I understand you might find out you’ve forgotten something important you want included once we get underway. Those types of scenarios can change our time frames.
