Strategy & Planning
World change starts with a strategic mindset. Through strategic consultation with the team at HiDef, your social enterprise and our mindshare work together to create high-impact strategic roadmaps.
What does world change cost over the next three years? What areas of the web are your organization’s biggest need, and what proactive growth will stem from there? Should you be developing mobile solutions? How can online technologies enable you to grow fast while maintaining the fidelity of your culture and approach? Should you be running ads for your cause?
HiDef, through its NIRDS approach, walks you through an Online Needs Assessment to take stock of your long term mission, matching up online opportunities with growth needs. What results is a roadmap presentation that we create together and discuss with board members, funders, grant-making organizations and strategic partners.
It’s about going beyond the single project to the integrated platform.
Together we’ll arrive at a plan that informs key budget and resource decisions for your organization.

Web Design & Development
In the mobile, social online landscape, your web presence is the mothership. The traditional website is still the point of presence that allows you to communicate your mission and get people involved in it. We create beautiful websites and web campaigns that serve as the foundation for your greater web strategy, which could include mobile and social applications that engage people in your cause like never before.
Because we use industry-leading open source technologies and frameworks for much of our work, you can have peace of mind, able to grow your staff’s skills in these same technologies, even as you entrust us as your go-to tech partner.
Our web development skills are just a part of our long-term partnership with you, ensuring that we develop not just a site, but a strategy that will extend its reach as your mission continues to expand.
