It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (at least that’s what they say). And we’re inclined to believe them. Because among other things, for the entire month of December, you can get $100 off a brand new website from Clover. Here’s how it works:
Just use this special link to visit cloversites.com and you’ll automatically be eligible for the discount. You can demo everything for free, and once you’re ready to purchase, you’ll get $100 off! It’s really that easy.
Speaking of friends, if you’re a Clover Friend, anyone who uses your unique referral link to purchase a website this month gets $100 off! And of course, you’ll still get your $100 reward for each site you sell through your link. So go ahead and start sharing the good news. If you’re not a Clover Friend yet and would like to start earning $100 for every purchase you refer not just this month, but every month, go sign up right now and start sharing your unique URL so you get the credit (and those referral checks)!
As always, if you have questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email.

Before things get too crazy with the holidays, we wanted to release an additional update to current Clover Sites.
Just about a month ago we launched great enhancements to forms on mobile. And today, we’re pleased to announce that all your password protected pages are now fully mobile as well. Whether you have a whole site, main page, or sub-page password protected, whoever has access to the passwords now has access to the content wherever they are, from any device.
As usual, these upgrades are completely seamless and completely free. All your current password protected pages are immediately available everywhere, and any password protected pages you make in the future will automatically work perfectly on any device without any extra effort on your part.

Today, we want to celebrate with all of our Clover Donations customers. Since we launched, you’ve accepted over $50 million in donations! And all in less than a year and a half. It’s seriously incredible.
And because everyone loves stats, here some more:
We’re beyond excited to have played a part in helping so many of you – churches, ministries, and non-profits – accept donations online. And the best part for us is getting to see the impact you’re having across the nation and around the world. It’s crazy to think that over $100 per minute is being given to fund and further the critical work and ministry of thousands of organizations, who in turn effect the lives of countless tens of thousands of other people. And that number is just continuing to grow.
We also wanted to remind you that online donations plays a huge role in end of the year giving because it’s much easier for people to give – even up to the last minute on December 31st from wherever they are. In fact, on average, end of the year online giving makes up about 30% of the total annual giving, and about 10% of the donations organizations receive annually come in on the last 2 days of the year! So if your church, ministry, or non-profit isn’t using Clover Donations yet, there’s literally never been a better time.

As we mentioned in a previous post, we’ve been hard at work on many things here at Clover. And not just Clover Sites 3, which is of course, our main focus.
We’ve also been working on some updates to the current version of Clover Sites, and today, we’re particularly excited to announce mobile forms for all Clover Sites customers! Many of you have been asking about this, and we’re stoked to finally bring it to you. Now all those awesome forms you create will work perfectly across iPhones, iPads, and other mobile devices and tablets.
As always, we’re bringing this update to you for free. And as usual, this upgrade is completely seamless – you don’t have to do a thing to take advantage of the upgraded forms. As of today, all your current forms have been upgraded to look and work great everywhere, and any forms you make in the future will automatically work seamlessly on any device without any extra effort on your part. And of course, all your customization for colors, settings, field options, and even form reporting all just work as well.
We hope you enjoy this update!

SoAcres is a passionate group of people who are heartbroken that each weekend in their city, over 150,000 people aren’t connected to a church. Their goal is to change that, and see the people of Lexington reached.
As a first step, they’ve made sure that their front door – their website – is not just informative, but visually and organizationally attractive. The site is absolutely beautiful with a modern, clean look and a design-conciousness that’s carried throughout each page and element of the site. Nothing’s been overlooked and much of their website is geared towards new visitors so they can quickly see where to go and what to expect, right off the bat. They’ve further catered their website experience to first and second-time visitors by created customized form pages that allow those new to the church to give the church leaders some feedback on the experiences they had.
But not only that, they’ve also included a wealth of additional resources about the church and their beliefs for the benefit of their members and visitors under a main heading titled “mySoAcres”. They have information about their vision and values, foundational beliefs, and even information regarding weddings, and thorough, Biblical answers to “Hot Topics” discussed and debated in today’s culture that many may be curious about.
Overall, they’ve really done a fantastic job with their site and we couldn’t be more proud of what they’ve created. Be sure to click through and check out their site so you can see it all for yourself!

We know everyone’s been anxious to hear what’s happening with Clover Sites 3, so we wanted to take a moment to step back and give you all an update on where we’re at, and most importantly, where we’re going.
First of all, where we are now.
We’re currently neck deep in code, to put it mildly, building the structural elements that hold everything together. We told you Clover Sites 3 was going to be a complete overhaul, and we weren’t kidding. All the behind the scenes planning, architecture, resources, and logic that makes Clover Sites such an amazing product to use is all being pushed forward, constructed, tested, and evaluated piece by piece.
While we’re still a ways out from launch, we’re really excited about our progress so far. We’ve locked in countless elements of the design and user experience already, and now that development is well underway, we couldn’t be happier with the way things are going. Throughout the planning and preparation for Clover Sites 3, we’ve been very strategic with the way we’ve approached this. We didn’t want to do a 1-1 translation of Clover Sites from the current structure of flash and html, and convert or somehow port that existing code to another technology or codebase just to get it out faster.
Instead, we’ve continued to re-imagine the way Clover Sites will be created and experienced. We’re examining everything we build from the very foundational layers we’ve constructed all the way through every individual piece of design and line of code. This includes all of the beautiful, intuitive elements and simple, powerful interactions that are such a huge part of the Clover experience on the front-end of your website – and just as importantly – in the Greenhouse.
We’re creating even more powerful tools and a much more robust platform we can build on quickly (yes, quickly!) after our initial launch, allowing us to continue adding new features, applications, and resources for you in ways that are smarter, more creative, and more helpful than ever before. The best part about all of this is that we’ve been able to keep intact and even improve upon the most important element – the incredibly easy experience you’ve come to know and love. What this means is that Clover Sites 3 will feel absolutely familiar, yet at the same time, be something completely new to enjoy.
We truly believe the new version of Clover Sites will help you grow your web presence in so many ways you may not even have thought of yet, helping you not just expand the native capabilities of what your website offers, but also providing easier integration with other tools and services. It’s an exciting new approach we’re taking with all of this, and it’s already shown a tremendous amount of value internally. We are building faster and smarter, and have the freedom to be more creative in our solutions, which ultimately means an even better product for you.
Now, a little bit about where we’re headed.
It’s no secret that these things take time. It’s also no secret that we don’t really believe in releasing timelines. We’d rather focus our efforts and energy on creating the best possible product and release it just as soon as it’s ready. That being said, we know it’s been a while since our last post and we also know some of you are holding on hope that there is an imminent release in the works.
So, in light of that, we wanted to be very clear so you know what to expect from Clover as we continue moving forward, especially for those of you who truly need to know the release date so you can make an informed decision about your web presence.
At this time, we can say with confidence that the first version of Clover Sites 3 won’t be released in 2013. We realize that may not be what some of you wanted to hear, but hopefully this knowledge helps those of you who have expressed a need to better plan for your churches, businesses, and organizations. And as always, between now and the release, we’ll continue to do our very best to give you updates on our status with Clover Sites 3, as well as answer any questions we can along the way.
Finally, while we are putting a ton of effort into Clover Sites 3, we do have quite a few other projects planned for the future as well. Ever since midway through development on Clover Donations, we’ve been working on multiple projects at once, and we can’t wait to show you more of what we’ve been working on in the near future.
We’re also continuing to actively maintain the current version of Clover Sites and we have some updates planned for the current mobile version this year as well. In addition, we’re refreshing some other things around here, including great new help resources that will allow us to provide even more amazing support from our customer service team across all our products and services.
We’re incredibly excited about what we’re creating for you and where we’re going. As always, thanks for being the best part of Clover and for coming along for the ride.

Director of Product & Operations
Hey everyone! We wanted to let you know that we’re launching a special summer promotion on Clover Sites for those who are a part of our Clover Friends program (and their friends).
Here’s how it works:
1. For the next 60 days (June & July), we’re increasing the referral bonus for Clover Friends to $150 per site!
2. Because we also love friends of Friends, anyone who purchases a website through a Clover Friends referral link will get $50 off their purchase! (NOTE: to get the discount, they must use your referral link!)
3. Not only that, for each sale a Clover Friend refers during the promotion, we’ll give you an entry into a drawing to win one of the brand new iPad minis we’re giving away, paired with a $100 iTunes gift card so you can immediately start downloading apps, music, books, and more when you get it. The more referrals you earn, the more chances you have to win!
Here’s what you need to do:
1. If you’re already a Clover Friend, now’s the time to start letting everyone know about this upcoming promotion on your Facebook, Twitter, Blog, Website, and any other channel you use to get the word out. Make sure you share your unique referral link and continue to share this special promotion as often as you can throughout the next 2 months to maximize your bonus.
2. If you’re not yet a Clover Friend and would like to start earning $150 for every purchase you refer this summer, (and $100 for each site you refer any other day of the year) along with all the other benefits, sign up right now and start sharing your unique URL so you start getting the credit (and those referral checks!)

We’ve just launched a new feature for Clover Donations! Your donors now have the ability to manage their own account with your organization!
It’s super easy for all of your donors to create an account… The next time (or the first time) they make a donation, they’ll be given the option to create their account before they submit their donation. Each time your donor visits your form they can easily sign in. Here’s why account management is great for them and for you:
Why it’s great for your donors
1. Giving is faster and easier
Once they have an account, the donation experience is quite a bit faster. Whenever a donor is logged in, the account information needed to process their donation will instantly and securely appear in the form. This lets them give immediately without needing to re-enter all their information in the form each time they want to give. (We know this is something your people have wanted for a while!)
2. Donors can now manage their own information
Your donors no longer have to call or email you to make updates to their account. They can sign in from any modern device, and quickly update their contact and billing information, view their transaction history, and manage their recurring donations. All in literally just a few clicks. And the account management tool we’ve created for your donors is completely responsive so it looks and works perfectly on desktop computers and mobile devices.
Why it’s great for your organization
1. Saves you time & money
Since your donors can now manage everything for themselves, your organization should handle fewer support requests and information updates. You still have total control over each individual and transaction in the Donation Center, but we’ve taken most of the management tasks that used to be solely on your plate, and placed the tools in the hands of your people. This will save you precious time and ultimately financial resources as well.
2. Helps you maintain better records & communication
Now that your people can have direct control over all of their contact information and billing information, you can rest assured that your records are as current as possible. We’ve also made sure that your donors automatically get notices if their credit card is about to expire, so they’re prompted to update their information. And we’ve made it easy in the Donation Center to identify donors who have registered accounts with your organization. There’s a special “registered” tag assigned to each donor when they create their account. So whether you’re running a report, or just viewing an individual donor, you’ll be able to quickly see their status.
This new feature is currently available to every Clover Donations customer. As with all of our updates, it’s completely free and we’ve rolled it out to everyone who has a Clover Donations account.
If you have any questions about this new feature, don’t hesitate to call us at 805-527-8900 or email us at email@example.com.
If you haven’t signed up for Clover Donations yet, now is a great time to check it out!
