We begin the strategic process with a thorough understanding of your strategic goals, business model and opportunities. It is this overarching conception of your organization, translated into positioning and messaging, that guides specific tactics and timing. The external environment can rapidly change — and usually does. An exchange of strategic information and ideas is an ongoing part of our account planning and implementation.
We help influence the issues that drive clients’ strategic goals. Our team draws upon its Washington, DC experience working for organizations concerned with economic development, education and training, foreign aid and other issues. Our representation on behalf of clients has involved us in issues including the Internet in the schools, workers’ compensation, technology investment in Asia and Europe and relief and development projects around the world.
Placing the right message in the right outlet at the right time is the primary way in which we help clients master the market. Success in this arena requires understanding the media environment, cultivating media contacts and, above all, tenacious outreach. We have deep experience delivering clients’ messages to top tier business outlets and a wide array of vertical publications. In addition, we have experience producing and placing bylined articles and editorials on a variety of topics. You expect placements. We deliver.
You'll work with seasoned professionals who focus on delivering results. We won't schedule a lot of meetings or send you long reports. You'll get our experience, focus and drive to help you advance your strategic goals.
Our focus on results, combined with our lean structure, translates into competitive rates. You pay us strategic counsel and results. Period.
