Social impact organizations need to provide digital experiences that are fast, responsive, and immersive. Learn the JAMstack approach to web development.
As a modern social impact organization, you already know that your website forms the foundation of everything you do. Long gone are the days when a static, “brochure”-like site fit the bill. Whether you’re spreading awareness about your cause, calling supporters to action, raising funds, or making sales, your website — and the underlying systems with which it integrates — have many big jobs to do.
Of course, as digital experiences are changing, so is the tech that powers it. (Or perhaps it’s the other way around…) Unless you’re a developer, you don’t need to keep up with the latest website development trends. But you do need to assemble a set of technologies that best supports your organization’s current activities and future growth objectives.
At Cosmic, we believe social impact organizations should think and act like digital media outlets. That is, you should commit to regularly producing and promoting high-quality content that connects and inspires. Your goal? To broadcast your message, nurture your relationship with your audiences, and maximize impact. Adopting this model also means committing to best-in-class digital experiences — experiences that are fast, responsive, and immersive.
For all of these reasons and more, when we build websites for our social impact clients, we use the JAMstack philosophy.
