Ignite: our new ready-to-launch petition theme
January 11, 2019
Sometimes, activism cannot wait. Big changes in our world are happening fast, and your campaigns needs tools to spur activism quickly. That’s why we created Ignite, our newest theme for petition microsites running on NationBuilder.
Kickstart your site in a matter of minutes. Ignite is our our first theme that can be purchased directly through NationBuilder’s new theme marketplace. This means that once you purchase the theme, you’re ready to start customizing it.
Build your movement with NationBuilder. While some petition sites use your campaign to keep your supporters’ data, with NationBuilder you own your signer database. For that reason, Ignite is perfect for campaigns looking to build a base of supporters and looking to take their movement to the next phase.
Made for activism. Ignite was designed for action-drawn petitions featuring vibrant colors and dynamic typography. Our stunning progress bar gives supporters a clear idea of your signature goal. Calls-to-action are strategically situated, and the mobile version includes a fixed action button to make sure supporters can become activists on the go.
Customize it for your cause. Ignite includes 4 color variations, so you can make sure your petition site matches your campaign’s brand. You can also change the header image to establish your presence. Ignite includes email templates with customizable messaging, so you can adapt them to your movement’s voice.
Made for social. Social media feeds are key to show your audience that people are talking about your movements, and Ignite features a space to embed your favorite social feed code (Don’t have one? Check out Twitter’s own, or Juicer). Ignite also supports social share icons, so your activists can spread the words on social media.
Know your best moves. Ignite includes an online training guide, so you’ll always know what you’re doing when you create your site. In addition, we created a best practices for campaigning section, sharing our secrets from our 7 years building award-winning digital strategies.
