At Holmes, we have the opportunity to partner with many nonprofits in the Springfield, Dayton, and surrounding areas. While each nonprofit is unique, to date we have helped them brainstorm, plan, execute, and analyze their marketing strategies. We understand the importance of every single grant dollar and donation check spent, and aim to give our clients the highest return we can.
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Allison Peck from the Clark County Public Library. Below, she shares her experience of working with Holmes as a nonprofit:
Prior to the early 2000’s, we had a new logo and color scheme adopted. We had done some concentrated marketing for our Speaker Series from 2000-2010. Other than that, we did very little in an overall strategy for communicating information about the resources and opportunities at the library.
Trying to have every piece (print, web, strategy, etc.) tie together in a sense of an overarching theme and consistency in our messaging.
To help us reach more potential users – but also the help people realize all of the resources and services today’s libraries have!
Very positive! The team at Holmes has been extremely responsive to our requests and special circumstances specific to our organization. They are a creative and thoughtful group who is always fun to work with.
It can’t be overstated how important it is to work with an agency who does great work. They are very professional and it is wonderful to be able to trust them with projects. Things are done correctly and ahead of time. They always meet or exceed my expectations.
I wish we had started working with them sooner!
Seeing the direction things will take. Technology is consistently changing libraries and what we offer our users. We look forward to working with Holmes as they help us build our user base and further explain the importance of our library to the community – and how they can use us to improve their lives.
While every nonprofit is unique in their values, visions, and goals, they all have a common need to partner with agencies that do more than just the bare minimum. Nonprofits require specialized and unique attention. They require partnering agencies to come alongside them – to see their dreams and help make them a reality.
If your organization does not currently partner with a marketing agency, we encourage you to do some digging and figure out which firm would be the best fit for your organization.
