#1 – Don’t start from scratch

Out of the box, Humane Sites comes with an upgraded version of WordPress. This means you get tonnes of features upfront. If a website was like constructing a five-floor building, with Humane Sites you would be starting off from floor three, instead of the ground floor.

#2 – We help you get your site up

If your content is ready, we will help you go live with your website in approximately two weeks by reusing building blocks that already exist.

We will start structuring your content into pages, deciding what content will go in which page, maintaining a consistent tone and style for your content.

We want our members to be self-reliant with respect to day to day operation of their website. Once we have laid the foundation, you will be trained to control, make changes (copy or image) on your website on your own.

To this end, we have put a Help Desk in place and an extensive collection of doodles that you can use to refine your content. We encourage you to interact with us through Basecamp.

#3 – Beyond website, learn marketing from like-minded people

When you pay for The Humane Club, you get something tangible — a flat-fee concierge service to get your website up. Beyond that, you also get to participate in the Humane Community, which:

  • Reduces your investment by spreading the costs across all members.
  • The primary job of a website is marketing. Come learn, experiment, and seek feedback on marketing with others in the community.
  • Share resources with other members.
  • Most importantly, you are not restricted by the knowledge and experience of one agency, few developers, or a freelancer.

#4 – Beyond marketing, co-build with like-minded people

Once you have refined your website and started your content marketing journey, you will be able to analyze and know if you require any custom feature built for your website. 

There are three ways to achieve this:

  • You can comment and upvote requests made by others on 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.
  • You can commission us directly to get any custom features or theme built.

#5 – We take ownership of maintaining your site

You recognize that a “website” in 2022 isn’t a strategic differentiation. It is a table stakes! Yet, you know that the cost of designing, building, maintaining, and upgrading a professional website is fairly high.

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.

#6 – We save you time and give value for money

And you get all of this for a fraction of the annual salary of a good developer.

Apart from design, as a valued member of Humane Club, you benefit not only from subsidized technology costs, but also from a bouquet of features that were already commissioned by other members. This implies that you save the money you would have paid a web development agency for starting from scratch. You only pay for a feature that’s missing and you want custom built.

#7 – Who work with data and evidence

WordPress is a page-based CMS. We’ve enhanced it to communicate data and evidence.
