Cornershop Creative Acquires Wired Impact’s Hosting, Maintenance, and Retainer Clients

We’ve got big news! Cornershop Creative has acquired Wired Impact’s hosting, maintenance, and retainer clients, allowing the Wired Impact team to focus on their nonprofit website subscription service.

We first met the Wired Impact team at WordCamp US in 2019 and, thanks to our shared interest in building amazing websites for even more amazing nonprofits, we connected as partners. Wired Impact was originally founded in 2009, and they’ve been building websites for nonprofits ever since.

Originally started by Jonathan Goldford and David Hartstein as a more traditional marketing agency, Wired Impact grew by building large, custom websites and partnering with nonprofits to serve as an extension of their marketing team. In 2017, Wired Impact launched a WordPress-based nonprofit website subscription service to allow nonprofits of all sizes to build and launch great sites. With this acquisition, the subscription service will become Wired Impact’s sole focus.

Our Cornershop Creative team has grown a lot since we were founded in 2012 by Ben Byrne, Ira Horowitz, and Lesley Molecke. Since then, our company has grown from this team of three to a team of 30 full-time employees! Throughout our history, we’ve focused on the needs of nonprofits, building custom websites in WordPress, maintaining those sites, and offering email marketing and SEO optimization services.

Both the Wired Impact and the Cornershop teams already work remotely, so the two new folks coming over to our team from Wired Impact won’t have to relocate. Equally as important, our new clients won’t experience any disruption in the services. In fact, they’ll instead enjoy an expanded menu of services, including CRM API integrations, campaign implementation packages, and nonprofit SEO optimization.

We’re excited to welcome these new employees and new clients to the Cornershop family! Let’s do great things together!
