POWER YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA & WEBSITE
BLOGGING IS KING . . . IF YOU HAVE TIME
E-NEWS AND EMAIL REIMAGINED
Social media and websites should be treated as integrated communications. The website is the destination . . . and social media is the path. The website content should create action, and social media content should create interest and engagment to lead people to the site. We will help you achieve both.
GRANT WRITING AND REVIEW
CUSTOM DONOR CAMPAIGNS
We know communications -- and we know donors. Launch powerful donor campaigns designed for results. Annual campaigns, holiday giving, days of giving (yes, there are more than one), and more. We will also help you design Benevon style campaigns, and promote these and other donor events.
Crowdfunding is now more than a buzzword. It is going mainstream with more than 5 billion dollars raised in 2014. However, it is also a maze, and a time-eater, with the typical campaign lasting ten+ weeks. It is also a platform for cause awareness and advocacy. But desired results require creative promotion.
The role of strong writing in grants is often underestimated. We write grants that appeal to the foundation's objectives, follow guidelines, and speak to their hearts. (Remember, your application is being read by people.) We guarantee to complete a grant a full week before deadline for proper review and edit.
Have you been asked to speak before a group? We can ghost write a speech, and/or design a PowerPoint slide show. Let us take your concept or outline, make it as special as you want it to be, and make it sound like you. We can also ghost write or proof white papers, training manuals, and e-books.
GHOST WRITER NEEDED?
MEETING FACILITATION FOR RESULTS
Not all surveys are created the same. We will discuss your survey objectives and audience, and custom design survey questions and format for you. We will help you promote the survey. And when the survey period is complete, we will compile the data and create a report that is both understandable and actionable.
"Oh no . . . not another Board/Staff retreat!" Let us help facilitate your meeting for results. We will meet with you to discuss meeting focus and logistics, create materials, review meeting plan with you, and lead the meeting. And at the end of the meeting we will create an "actionables" report for your Board and staff.
WHAT DON'T WE DO? Also a great question, because we don't try to do everything. Let's start with this: we never take on an assignment that we can't deliver -- on time and with excellent results. That means we may sometimes turn down work, but only if there is the slightest question in our minds as to whether we can perform to your expectations.
What we also don't do are any services that have to do with attorneys, accounting and financials, human resource management and benefits administration. Those are not areas of specialization for us . . . we are the communications professionals . . . and we are smart enough to know that. However, if you need any services in those areas, we will be happy to help with referrals. (We're connected to a lot of those professionals too.)
A great question, right? We do a lot, but our primary focus is strategic communications and marketing for nonprofits. Whether for your website, or social media platforms, or a speech, or a blog you write, or funding campaigns, or facilitation of an important meeting -- we can help with more powerful, more impactful and more professional communications.
We are also available for strategic planning and development for your organization. In fact, we serve in that capacity for multiple nonprofit and community organizations. We also work on program development and volunteer initiatives. However, the focus is still communications.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Twitter length messages can't always tell your story. And "fat content" has become a stronger determinent of SEO (especially on Google). The best solution for this is blogging. But does your firm have the time and talent to consistently create great copy? Let us create strong content to tell a more compelling story.
Email isn't dead. Nor are newsletters. But in a world where mobile devices are king, and shorter gets read, both must be reimagined. This takes skilled copywriters who understand nonprofit messaging and mission. We will help you design and implement communications to transform the old to the new, with results.
