NextWord Communications specializes in designing and building custom websites and email campaigns for small businesses, nonprofits, and civic organizations. We also provide many related services either in-house or through our partners.

Custom websites

Yep, this is our bread and butter, our passion, our raison d'être. We build most of our websites on the Drupal content management system, which gives us ultimate flexibility to include the features you need — and keep it user-friendly. We also work with the Squarespace website platform when we feel it's a better fit for a client.

We provide domain name registration and top-of-the-line cloud hosting, with separate development and testing environments, daily backup, and constant security monitoring.

At NextWord, as our name implies, we're pretty handy with words. We can assist you with every aspect of content strategy.

Getting the website you've always wanted doesn't have to be a headache! We'll walk you through it, every step of the way.

Email marketing

Sending emails that look beautiful and get read is no easy thing. We use cutting-edge technologies to make sure your emails look great on mobile and desktop alike, in a myriad of email clients. And we track and implement current research on improving open rates and click-throughs.

  • Our designs are totally custom, made to coordinate with your branding.
  • We ensure that our clients' email campaigns comply with anti-spam laws.
  • Our emails contain NO outside branding or advertising from the email service.
  • You can add content and send email campaigns yourself through our simple, intuitive portal, or we can do it for you.


We are experienced at creating custom graphics and manipulating images. Our graphics services include making cover images for your Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages that echo your website, as well as online ads. We also do Photoshop work on photos for a variety of uses.


We love the web. But there are times when you really have to have printed materials, and we do that too. Newsletters, brochures, flyers, posters, signs ... just ask us.
