What we do

Our innovative platforms will change the way the world sees you.

Our Approach

89up’s web development team specialises in building high-impact websites for charities, non-profits and NGOs.

A powerful website with customised features can revolutionise your impact, expand your capacity, inspire people and allow you to better fundraise for your cause.

A great charity website will pay for itself through increased supporter donations and a user experience that builds passion for your cause by highlighting the amazing work you do.

Our web development team will make sure your audience finds the information that is most relevant to them. We can also develop custom formats for your websites, such as a long reads format with the ability to integrate storytelling rich-content features such as timelines, video, animations and other bespoke features. You can see examples on Little Atoms: Something as simple as a star and Boats against the current.

Our award-winning editorial team crafts the most appropriate language to help your audiences understand what you do and how they can be more involved.

89up is one of the few agencies who can ensure that your website looks the part and your web copy is punchy, informative and keeps people on your page.

Our technologists can build you a website using open source software (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, Mezzanine) or custom build your website using our powerful campaigning platform and CMS, Start A Fire. We will work to your specifications and develop you a website that precisely fits the needs of your organisation.  
 

Case study: Respect ASOS Workers!

One of the UK’s biggest unions, GMB, approached 89up to help launch a website to promote a new campaign to help protect workers’ rights at a warehouse used by the fashion brand ASOS.

The website needed to be turned around quickly, appeal to fashion conscious online shoppers and give journalists quick facts on the campaign.

We build the website on 89up’s bespoke campaigning tool for non-profits Start A Fire with a custom theme and new features. One feature we built especially for GMB was the ability for ASOS customers to email petition the CEO and customer services with bespoke tailored subject headings to prevent their messages of support for the workers from being deleted.

In a few days, thousands of ASOS customers and GMB members used the platform putting immediate pressure on the company.
