WHAT WE DO

We develop and carry out individualized communication and marketing strategies for small businesses, organizations, and teams. 

WHY WE DO IT

We believe that small business owners should be able to focus on their craft instead of spending hours each day trying to figure out their communication plan. Many smaller teams don't have a communications or marketing professional in-house due to budget constraints or inexperience, so we fill that gap for them.

OUR SERVICES

Communication Strategy

We sit down with you to learn about your business from the inside out. Our team then works our magic to create a comprehensive communication and marketing strategy designed to meet your goals and help you stand out from the crowd. Our strategies can be developed for teams who are interested in carrying out the strategy themselves, or we can stick around and take that work off your hands for you.

Written Communication

We'll write, edit, or revise content written for print materials and communication channels, including website copy, copy for branded print materials (i.e. flyers, posters, mailers), blog articles, newsletter content, social media content, and more. 

Website strategy

No matter where you are in your website journey, we can help you from planning your first website to maximizing the reach of your current site. Let us jump on board to:

  • Evaluate website analytics to provide strategic recommendations
  • Review website for content errors, user issues, broken links, etc.
  • Create user journey to understand site visitor needs and what adjustments may be made to better meet these needs
