Business Consulting, Marketing Services, and Technical Assistance
We specialize in working with nonprofit organizations to provide advice to staff, the Board, and volunteers. We provide planning assistance, write grant applications, create and maintain websites, develop workshops, produce communication materials, and manage projects where appropriate.
Strategic planning, business planning, marketing planning, and operational planning – every organization needs them, Whether you are a business, nonprofit, or government agency, we can assist you with facilitating planning meetings, drafting plans, and coaching.
Grants are vital for nonprofit organizations and require diligent research, smart strategies, and experienced writers. We can help you produce successful grant applications, manage grant projects for you, or conduct program evaluations.
Online surveys are a fast, low-cost, reliable way to get feedback from customers, clients, association members, event attendees, and citizens. We help design, administer, and interpret surveys. Read more about surveys.
To succeed in today’s digital universe, you need to be able to communicate with various audiences through web-based technologies. This includes providing information about your organization, people, and projects and making meaningful connections with clients, volunteers, donors, and the media.
Small businesses, micro-businesses, and freelancers
We work primarily with businesses with 1 to 10 employees. Since most of these individuals or companies have low budgets for marketing services, they need low-cost solutions. Because we have low overhead and keep our rates low, our clients get the services they need at the rates they can afford.
Nonprofit organizations need many of the same services as businesses. To acquire the funds they need to operate, they have to market themselves to foundations, grantors, and small donors. So they use social media, websites, and blogs just like everyone else. Some nonprofits need grant writing, copy writing, help with Board management and volunteers, and management coaching, all of which we can provide as business consultants with decades of experience.
Free initial consultations
We like to learn what your challenges are before we jump in with advice or solutions. So we spend a minimum of 30 minutes on the phone with you, at no cost to you.
We work with a variety of associates with specialized expertise so we can deliver exactly the skill set you need for the task at hand.
We can deliver as little or as much assistance as you need. We believe in DIY approaches where feasible. If you have the time and skills, we can coach you to create and manage your marketing tasks for yourself. Other times, it might be best just to have us manage the project from start to finish or and maybe even provide daily or monthly maintenance for social media and websites.
