Yup, we can do that for you.

We work with you to develop strategic, pragmatic and cost-effective strategies that can be implemented in-house. Or, if you prefer, we can act as your outsourced marketing/communications/fundraising department… however, we will always make sure that one of your staff members is an integral part of the implementation team. Our aim is to make sure that plans and strategies are implemented in a timely fashion… not left on the shelf.

Marketing is a process whereby a service or product is researched, packaged and delivered to the identified target markets. We believe that all the ‘tools’ within the marketing function (including fundraising, media and public relations, special events, etc) need to be identified and used in an integrated manner within the available budget… to better ensure economies of scale realization of identified outcomes.
