Free Services by Maple

Don’t have budget to work with us? That’s okay! We will still do our best to help you out, answer your questions, and provide a recommendation (if you’re looking for that). Contact us any time using the help center in the bottom right.

Generosity, by design, has a transformative potential for our economy.

Instead of spending money on marketing, we dedicate time to answering website questions, providing workshops and training, and creating and contributing to online courses.

A Win-Win Business Model

Our business model allows us to provide tons of free value to anyone who wants it. There is an abundance of information and we are no hoarders. If we can help, we will, so just ask.

We also provide four high-value projects per year (one for each season) to qualifying individuals and organizations. Fill out our application below to apply.

Even our free work is outcome-oriented. We provide contracts for free projects as well, because it’s through this process of getting everything in writing that we’re able to define the outcomes and get everyone on the same page. We value the time, attention, and commitment of everyone we work with.

Who is eligible for free marketing consulting and websites?

Great question – and we generally approach this on a case by case basis… but here are some examples of the types of clients that we’ve done free work for in the past:

  • An organization that does free work (community center, environmental campaign)
  • Any person or business that is focused on helping wild animals or wild nature to thrive
  • Any person, business, or organization that is explicitly talking about racial justice and equity

And here’s the thing, many of our paying clients are already doing many of these things anyways… so really it comes down to budget, access to funds, time, and other factors that we consider on a case by case basis.

Some of the other criteria might be:

  • How likely is it that we can help you?
  • Can we provide unique leverage you can’t get somewhere else, or with a volunteer?
  • Would a website and marketing plan make the difference in your goals right now?

Tell us about your project, we’re excited to hear from you:

Hey, I'm Ryan, what's your name?

How do you like to describe your work?

Back to your project for a minute...

How would we work together to reach the end of the project? What would that mean to the work you're doing?
