Cobblestone Communications specializes in creating user-friendly websites and accompanying social media page(s). We can also manage the content of both for as long as you'd like.
We are a small business concerned with serving not-for-profit organizations, fair pricing and flexibility are of course a priority. If you're interested in getting a cost estimate, just get in touch.
(Design & Management)
For better or worse, having a website is now almost as important as having a phone number. A website does not need to be super fancy and expensive to get the job done, but it does need to reflect the current state of your organization — and it should be user-friendly. We can build you a beautiful, accessible, mobile responsive site (in WordPress or another platform). And we'll make it easy for you to keep it updated with news, information, photos or anything else you might want.
(Setup & Management)
Social media is a great way to connect with your community. It's also a great way to build a living portfolio of your organization's voice and identity. We do not believe that you need to have a presence on every social media platform out there — you would go crazy — but having some meaningful presence can help tell your story. We'll take a look at all your existing accounts at the beginning of our partnership and make recommendations based on your organization's needs. Then we can hand the reins over to you or we can manage your accounts going forward.
Email newsletters are a great opportunity to stay in touch with your community and supporters directly. Creating copy and design for your newsletters is one of our specialties. Here we believe that if there is one way to keep people away, it's by hassling them. We ensure that your newsletters pass the integrity test, and that each edition actually contains something of value for your recipients.
Getting quality photographs of your services and facilities can be very expensive. Luckily, we have photography experience, specifically taking promotional photos, and include this service as part of our work.

Search Engine Optimization
(SEO) & Analytics
While our philosophy places a heavy emphasis on a gentler, relationship-focused form of communication, we understand how important it is for your website to be visible in Google searches. We will ensure that your website is appropriately compliant with Google's (and other search engine's) requirements, and keep track of site analytics to understand who you are reaching and where improvements can be made. We will never use "click bait," invasive advertising, or invasive tracking methods that make your community members feel as though their privacy has been breached.
