Core Values

At The Good we thrive by holding true to three core values that we expect every team member to uphold in themselves, and one another:

  • Be a force for change. We find opportunity in every challenge and take action to make things better.

About The Good

A little about our “Why”.

At The Good we know what ecommerce leaders really want is to have a website that produces a lot more revenue from their existing traffic. In order to do that, they need to convert more of their website visitors into buyers. The problem is, they don’t know how to get their conversion rate to the next level which makes them feel frustrated and stuck.

We believe every ecommerce leader deserves a clear path that helps them realize their website’s true conversion potential. We understand how challenging it can be to take an existing website to its next level, which is why for almost 10 years we have been helping ecommerce sites increase their conversion rates without the need to increase traffic.

In fact, we’ve written the book on it: Stop Marketing, Start Selling.

We are proud to be a certified B-Corporation.

B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. While The Good has sought to hold ourselves to higher standards as a matter of principle, the certification has helped to add another layer of outside accountability and transparency.
