Media & Communications
Reaching your audience and amplifying your message to change and drive the conversation.
It’s not just what you’re saying — it’s who you’re saying it to, and how. Our communications professionals draw on a wealth of experience to ensure the greatest reach and impact of your message.
Who are your audiences? What messages will resonate with them? What’s the narrative that best tells the story of your work? And importantly, what are the tactics, resources, roles, and timeframes that will help you reach your definition of success? We can work with you to define your goals and create a strategic communications plan — to include press, digital and social, and in-person outreach — all of which can then be implemented by your team and/or ours.
From setting up a meeting with a local editorial board to getting your story in some of the most respected newsrooms in the nation, our team can help you get your message to the right influencers. We also provide media training for broadcast and print interviews, allowing you to maximize every press opportunity. We have a proven track record of placing stories and booking clients with national and niche media outlets and tested expertise in media messaging.
From TED-style speeches to keynote addresses, we can prepare your key spokespeople to get their messages to the right audiences. We offer soup to nuts support from research, drafting, editing, slide deck creation, and one-on-one prep.
The diversifying communications landscape requires a competitive digital strategy. Our team can help you develop a digital strategy that will grow your audience, increase engagement, and amplify your message online.
Rapid Response and Crisis Communications
With new pressures and strains on every organization, it is important to have a plan in place for how you’re responding to this pandemic, the social justice movement, or whatever crisis may come our way. Whether communicating with funders, constituencies, staff, or the media – you need to be clear about your key messages in a changing environment, have talking points for tough questions and conversations you must have, and identify your strongest spokespeople.
Digital Campaigns & Virtual Events
Social distancing has rocketed our use of digital technology to stay connected. From persuasive email campaigns to social media campaigns that activate your members and supporters and elevate critical voices and issues, our team has the skills, expertise, and experience to develop and implement effective digital campaigns. This also includes helping you navigate the tough choices of what to do with your planned events and how to turn them into successful virtual gatherings that support your organizational goals.
