Let us help you grow. That is the offer we proposed to non-profit organizations statewide seeking volunteers.
October 1, 2012 | Atlanta, Georgia – Trilogy Marketing Communications (TMC) has kicked-off it’s first ‘Pro Bono Project‘. TMC Consultants have allocated time and funding to offer and provide complimentary public relations services to an awarded non-profit organization.
What will this entail? Well, the possibilities are endless! Public Relations are designed to create awareness, while enhancing credibility. In fact, Inc.com reported “studies report that, next to word-of-mouth advice from friends and family, PR carries far more weight than advertising.”
As a Communications/PR Consultant and a developing Grant Writer, I have become aware and sensitive to the needs of non-profit organizations. It astounds me when someone decides to undertake the colossal task of not only addressing global and community issues, but sets its mission to eradicate them! For this reason we say, “Let us help you grow“.
This week (October 1 – October 5), we are accepting applications that can be found on http://www.trilogymarketingcommunications.com following the promotionals tab. Next week we will then conduct telephone interviews. We realize the holiday season is rapidly approaching and recognize it is during this ‘giving season‘ a non-profit could benefit most from ‘raised public awareness‘ of them and the programs they offer. With this in mind, we’ve scheduled October 22 for the award announcement (a panel of three consultants will review and determine). This will afford us two weeks to develop strategy and planning with implementation beginning November 1, 2012.
Three weeks out (before the holiday) is ample time to reach communities, print recognition, possible appearances, and of course monetary donations. I originally thought only a local organization could benefit from my services, but then I realize how the scope of communications has changed. Because of technology and social media, I could ‘technically‘ provide services in India right from the comfort of my own bed! Yes, I could, but I wouldn’t! But seriously, I was somewhat apprehensive yet I recalled the climate and nature of these organizations.
Founders, Executives, and Board Members of non-profit organizations welcome volunteers and are very receptive and appreciative of gifted services. They themselves started off as the first volunteers within their group. It is the kindness of their heart as to why there is even an organization. I reasoned, there is no need for any apprehension on my part. I know my job and I’m good at it (this is confidence vs haughtiness..I needed the boost)! So in the words of Nike in my ear….just do it!
As to what these services will entail is yet to be determined. We will have to wait and find out which organization is awarded and then determine their needs. PR is not a one-size-fits-all service. Therefore it is our goal to develop a customized program and tailored tools to ensure the non-profit reach their target market. We will say this again….let us help you grow!
Please share this information with any organization that may benefit. And if you are an established non-profit, feel free to leave comments as to what plans have worked you.
October is National Women’s Small Business Month. What is it? “Women’s History Month is an annual declared month worldwide that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.”, according to Wikipedia. It is reported that women-owned businesses are one of the fastest greatest segments of the small biznez community. The Small Business Association states that about 30 percent of small business are owned by women, compared to only 5 percent in 1970.
To kick-off the celebration, SBA is offering Web Chats on Tips for Women on How to Start a Business.After receiving this information, it inspired me to get some things done this month. As women we spend a majority of our time caring for others, and we will put our ‘agenda’ on the back burner. Well not this month! This month is for me and I’m taking advantage of it!
Now with that said…..hmmmm….what shall I do? Okay, since this month belongs to ME..I am going to focus on getting things done for my business – Trilogy Marketing Communications. I spend so much time helping others get ahead in their business…that my business needs gets pushed to the side.
As you can see I haven’t been on my blog since….well let’s just say a long time. I’ve been wanting to work more on submitting articles for magazine publishing, not making the time to focus on my writing. I’ve also been wanting to film a you tube video for my website. Speaking of site, I really need to spend quality time on mine. I did create a prototype…just to get the feel and to help determine what I would want on my site, but it time for that prototype to go! Lastly I’ve been wanting to create a digital portfolio for myself.
I am going to challenge myself …4 weeks = 4 projects. That mean each week I am to get a project completed that is going to push MY business forward! I’m taking the challenge. Are you up for the challenge?
>What does it take for someone to help someone in need? A buck or two… or perhaps the cost of a cup of coffee.. u can actually feed a village. I now understand the true concept behind that message.
There is this rare opportunity for a business to receive ‘free’ money… yes… FREE! Who gives away free money…to a business at that! Sure, people make donations all the time. Clothes, food, furniture, and even their time. We know corporations often give to non-profits for political and financial reasons….and yeah..that fuzzy feeling deep down inside. But rarely, if ever is a ‘for-profit’ organization granted free money. There are ‘grants’ for start-up businesses but those grants are actually LOANS… as a grant writer, I’ve searched high and low for free money.
Well here it is, the opportunity for me to become eligible for small business grant money…money that doesn’t have to be repaid. So here I am with this grand opportunity… and what is preventing me from getting the the bargaining table? YOU….you and your vote. Who is ‘you’? I don’t know this person…how am ‘I’ preventing her from reaching the table? Anyone who reads this message and not do anything to help….is preventing me.
My feelings have been hurt. I’ve been begging everywhere for people to vote for my company and as of this moment, I’ve only received 38 out of 250 votes. I’m developing a complex….what is wrong with me? Why won’t anyone help me?
My company, Trilogy Marketing Communications (TMC) chooses to focus on other small businesses, failing mom/pop shops, and non-profit organizations. I’m always giving back….so why won’t anyone help me?
What does it take to help someone is need? Not a buck, not even the cost of a cup of java…it only takes ONE CLICK OF A BUTTON! One click on the link below to vote and you have made a difference in someone’s life….
Please follow above link in comment box below and where it ask for business name, type in…Trilogy Marketing Communications..VOTE
So you see…Sally Struthers does make a good point…it actually cost us nothing to help…and still we (yes WE) don’t do it! I’m losing hope…if I feel this way…I can only imagine people in need of true necessities. What has this experience taught me…. to do more to help others. Take the time or the cost of a cup of java and make a difference!
Will you? Please vote! Deadline is June 30, 2012….I thank you in advance
