Block Pattern: Slim Fit

A “website” in 2023 isn’t differentiation. It is table stakes! Yet the cost of designing, building, maintaining, and upgrading one is fairly high. Either you spend an inordinate amount of time figuring it out or you spend a truckload of money with agencies.

Here’s how joining the Club help:

ACCESS THE CLUB COMMONS

With Agency

When you commission your website to a web development agency for a fixed fee, you are effectively starting from scratch: the ground floor.

With Humane Club

If your website is a five-floor building, with Humane Sites you would be starting off from floor three, instead of the ground floor.

LET US HELP YOU get started

If your content is ready, we’ll help you go live with your website in approximately two weeks.

You’ll receive training so you can operate/change your website without our assistance.

STAY UP AND MAINTAINED

We know that you are in your business for the long haul, so are we. We ensure that your website is upgraded as per latest web standards, adheres to all security protocols, and your servers are optimized. This cost is shared across all members!

Biweekly releases: You can look forward to bug fixes, feature improvements, new features etc. twice a month as per our roadmap.

NEED SOMETHING SPECIAL?

Humane Sites is extendible. Only if you need something special, then commission us directly as you would another agency.

CO-BUILD WITH OTHER MEMBERS

In Humane Club, every member subsidizes technology costs for every other member.

  • Turns out, most of the features you get were commissioned by other Club members.
  • Conversely, if you sponsor the building of a feature, then all other members get it for free. These three floors are always maintained and kept up-to-date by club membership fees.

You can also co-commission with others:

  • You can comment and upvote requests made by others on our Basecamp. We’ll pick up some of these in-demand features as and when bandwidth opens up.
  • If a feature is urgent and critical for multiple members, they can come together and co-fund the custom development fee.
