Our Leadership Team
How We Work
Our work starts with understanding your brand and value proposition, your competitors and market positioning, your business goals and your customers, donors or members. We’ll research your organization, audit your content across digital platforms and marketing channels then schedule an in-depth consultation with your stakeholders in order to assess your unique content needs.
We Identify Your Audience Personas
It has never been more important to know your customers and their needs. A recent study by Google and Gartner found that potential customers are increasingly turning to publicly-available information from digital and social media channels to self-diagnose problems and find their own solutions. Buyers complete as much as 70% of the decision-making process independently, without ever interacting with your organization, regardless of the price or complexity of your product or service – or your incumbency as their supplier.
If the scope of your project includes audience profiling, we’ll request a copy of your customer, donor or membership list, which we will segment into personas, or sub-groups based on similar characteristics, such as demographics, business industry, size, revenue, geography and spending/giving behavior. This insight will make your sales and marketing efforts more targeted and efficient, determine which digital platforms and marketing channels to use, make your messaging more relevant and allow us to look for prospects in your key segments.
We Build Your Content Strategy and Plan Based on Your Audience and Your Goals
Using the audience insight we’ve gained, our team of researchers and strategists will develop a content strategy and detailed plan to reach your key audience segments and to help achieve your business goals throughout the Buyer’s Journey – from lead generation and conversion to building your organization’s credibility and reputation with thought leadership.
We Enrich Your Narrative and Make Sure it's Heard
Our lead editor will assign your project to a writer, oversee their work and submit a draft that’s been edited and fact checked for your review within five business days. We’ll make any changes you require within two business days. And because we have identified the characteristics of your key audience segments, we can create different versions of your content, highlighting features and benefits of specific interest to key segments that drive your revenue, if requested.
