Effective video

takes thought,

planning

and

understanding

Ifthe world never stops changing, then why should we? Why not break out of the status quo? Try asking yourself:

With fresh tools, could we perform better?

But effective media is not just about new ideas. Here are some questions we like to ask:

1. What are your goals and dreams?

2. What is working for you?

3. What are your challenges?

4. Would following a trend or starting a trend help you more?

5. Are we really listening and being true to your vision?

6. How can we be thorough and streamline our interaction?


Let’s talk. Maybe you aren’t ready to fully commit to a project but you have questions or an ideas for the future. We are happy to simply discuss ideas and help you plan, no pressure. Send an email, call, or meet us for coffee. Let’s see if we are a good fit.

There are

more effective

ways for non-profits

Q&A

What is the difference between marketing and fundraising?
Effective marketing convinces people they want or need a product or service while effective fundraising convinces individuals that other people need their products or services.

Is a fundraising video really all that different?
Creating an effective fundraising video is a detailed process requiring specific elements that even many seasoned fundraisers and development directors overlook. Ask about our 15 Point Analysis that helps our non-profit clients fundraise, on average, 25% more.

What about DIY video?
Do it yourself video, or user generated video, can help your campaign, but studies show professional video is more effective. Also, many companies big and small underestimate the complexity and significant time it takes to create quality video. Even large organizations that have video savvy employees or departments can be overwhelmed with the other media and marketing projects, often delaying increased profits from video by months and even years.
