WHO WE ARE
The Wonder Jam has evolved into a “holding company” of sorts. We call ourselves an ecosystem rather than a holding company because we’re attracted to metaphors using nature or plant-life.

We have two well-developed public-facing sister brands: Basis and Wonderly. Basis is focused on supporting e-commerce businesses through branding and website building. Wonderly supports service providers through the same. Ashli (one of The Wonder Jam’s co-owners) leads Basis and Allie (the majority owner of The Wonder Jam) runs Wonderly.

While these sister brands make it easy for potential clients to understand our specific offerings, we operate as one organization and team behind the scenes. We are a nimble team of seven.

We are unique in that we are majority owned by people who actually do the work and are embedded in the day to day operations/delivery of service. Wonderly and Basis are woman-founded and led.
