  • You need to be brand compliant to meet the YMCA branding audit guidelines
  • You are worried that your site will not pass an ADA audit
  • If your website is not mobile-friendly
  • If your IT/Support staff is hard to reach and/or slow to respond
  • If a Board member says they are having a hard time navigating the site & now it's time to update
  • If your website is not generating new member leads every month

Why Choose Thrive Over Other Agencies/Software?

Thrive Logo

Security, Security, Security - Thrive builds ySites on the Accrisoft Freedom Content Management System, which is a safe and secure system that we update regularly.

We know the YMCA's - Thrive works with over 100 branches of the YMCA, so we know your organization well, how it works, and what it needs to grow.

You'll have full control of your website's back-office - No need to contact us to make an update to your site. Just log in and edit!

Other Providers

Other systems/software are prone to hacking and malware. In 2017 WordPress ranked as one of the most insecure Content Management Systems online.

No other company has hosted more YMCA websites.  As of December 2017, we have built and launched 75 YMCA websites, covering more than 300 branches.

Long wait time for the IT/Support staff to make site updates. If you run into a problem, the Thrive Support Team closes help tickets in less than four hours on average.

 The Membership Machine™ - Tools to help you build membership

Membership Rates Calculator - this allows you a variety of ways to display your membership rates - by income or age. The Scholarship Calculator allows member prospects to identify themselves as possibly qualifying for special discounts.

Countdown Timer Bar -Designed to live on the Home Page, this tool allows you display a countdown clock to a special event to increase the urgency for a site visitor to take immediate action.

yBox - We used to call these pop-up ads. It allows a custom message to "pop up" on your website at a time determined by you - usually after a visitor has visited a page or two. It is a powerful tool to encourage a call to action for a special program.

Silent Salesman - A tool that resides on the Home page designed to expand when activated by the site visitor, it can be used to support any program and its primary mission is to capture contact information for sales leads. Note the sticky nav.

yStories - A great way to get members to tell your story. Unlike advertising, consumers like to hear from the people using your facilities. This tool allows you to collect and post positive reviews from your members.

Drip Email Marketing -  Tools shown in the Membership Machine™ are designed to capture the contact information of member prospects. Drip Email allows you to schedule a series of emails highlighting the benefits of joining your Y.
