Our very first communications project was our own.
Ten years ago we launched a communications company to listen, and then experiment with a few theories. Put into practice, many of them worked.
Since then you’ve helped us identify, test and implement more of them. We’ve grown a lot since 2007. We had the chance to shape how associations communicate their unique offerings to their members. And more … you are the reasons our business is still relevant today.
Anticipate and adapt to the demands of the market.
Our business always starts by listening. We listen to what customers say and also what they don’t say. Both of which can be powerful in strategic decision-making.
Make listening a priority and action-ing that information an obsession.
To respond to emerging trends, or solve common problems, we refine the particular parts of our business that you have told us impacts your business the most.
Your voice has led us to create, test, refine, and implement new approaches to answer your needs.
Listening will continue to be our priority, putting it into action our obsession.
Help associations answer “So What?”
The range of competing content and distraction in our ‘social’ world is staggering. It’s a massive (and vital) skill to capture and then hold a member’s attention. On point and practical gems of simple messaging can turn indifference into you as the information source.
We found that the most effective way to run a service-centric business (an association) starts with the answer to “So What?” about why your organization exists. And helping you narrow down the few reasons that you matter most to your customers so you can begin to communicate it to them.
Build fan bases that turn indifferent members into active participants.
We have had the chance to help over 160 of you make change since 2007. To plan, construct, and relay messages that moves the new member, the business owner or the high producing superstar to do something. Our formula looks like this:
- 10 incredible years
- 167 associations served in the USA and Canada
- 1000s of dots connected and rearranged
Equals 1 Remarkable ride.
Use proven methods to guide you through complex and interconnected solutions.
This weaving of strategy, operations and communications requires art, science and proven experience. This experience is the foundation helping associations discover the best possible outcomes.
It begins when a new client identifies a lingering or resurfacing strategic issue like “We must improve communications and relay our value to our members.”
Then we identify tested, and often interdependent, solutions that help you approach your communications as a business asset, rather than a department function.
Teach first impressions and what’s in it for them – every day.
We don’t proclaim to have all the answers, but we know how to systematically approach each new association with our tried and tested methods that we know work.
Create value for your business to relay to your members.
Our success factor is your success. 100% of our time is focused on helping you connect with your members as individuals. This is what we have been able to do for a terrific ten years. We are excited to share this value-creating journey with you for many years to come.
