“We need to improve our marketing efforts, but don’t have internal expertise.”
“The business is going great–so much so that we need some help.”
“We have an enthusiastic staff and we could all use some training.”
“We won a grant and we’re going to need some help!”
“We’re hosting a big event and really want to use this opportunity to engage the community.”
Before we start knocking off tasks, we want to have some clarity around the bigger picture.
We want to dig into things with you. Discover what makes you unique. And figure out how to tell your story authentically.
At some point, the deliberations need to stop and somebody needs to suggest ways to move forward. That’s often us. Sorry, not sorry!
There’s marketing. And then there’s how we all get the marketing done while staying sane. Our job is to make your situation/job/life a bit easier.
What does that mean? It means things are done right, but not overdone. It’s somewhere between making sure the work is perfect…but also not shooting for a Rembrandt when a simple sketch will do.
We all have lives, you know? So, let’s get the right things done, with just the right amount of fuss.
You can count on us to be the ones in the meeting bringing fresh ideas with an upbeat attitude.
“As a small non-profit, it was difficult to find the right skill set to implement our marketing efforts internally. Digital and other media change rapidly and gish & co. has allowed us to stay ahead of the curve, adapting and changing to trends in marketing. We’ve propelled as an organization and I give credit to their knowledge, expertise and effort.”
“gish&co. came in and got us quickly up to speed. What would have taken us years to implement, gish&co. got done in one year.”
“Thoughtful, thorough, timely. Those are the first three words that come to mind when I think of why I’ve partnered with gish&co. and why I would again without hesitation. gish&co. starts by truly understanding the problem (the last one we worked together on was incredibly complex). They then find a real-world, workable solution that can be executed upon. All that and they understand the importance of hitting deadlines, something that helps me breathe. And I love to breathe!”
“They listened to what we wanted and needed and made creative and practical suggestions to help us accomplish our goals and create a website we are proud of.”
“gish&co. has been a key partner for our annual Dish gala for several years. They have really considered our target audience and brand to come up with new and fresh creative concepts, marketing recommendations and ways to create a fun and memorable event that engages our guests and keeps them coming back year after year.
The team at gish&co. is experienced, creative, flexible and resourceful. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an expert event marketing partner.”
“The professionalism and look of our brand have improved tenfold. People often think we’re a much larger firm than we actually are, just by the professional look and feel of our brand and website.”
“Working with gish&co. has meant so much to me and to InSideOut. They are so reliable and responsive—it’s so great to know somebody has your back that is helping you be successful. Working with gish&co. is like adding a team member without formally having someone on staff—they’re just as invested, and become part of the team.
For the resources we allocate to working with gish&co., the value is immense.”
“Working with gish&co. is refreshing and inspiring. Their energy is just what we needed for our event—they are organized and efficient, leaving me (the organizer) so much more time to focus on everything else.
The team is purpose-driven, smart, engaged, thoughtful and fun. Not only did gish&co. manage all of our social media, but they left us with many reusable materials and tools that we can continue to use. And most importantly, our attendees could see a reflection of themselves at the event and on social. This is, no doubt, a HUGE benefit in what we are trying to give our attendees—recognition, self-assurance and connection.”
“gish&co. took the time to really understand our brand and always delivers impressive results. They produce consistently excellent web and social media content, which have increased our volume of traffic and greatly improves our brand visibility and engagement. The team is very responsive, nimble and proactive throughout projects and have always been enthusiastic about their investment in our organization’s success.”
“gish&co. has contributed a wide variety of services and smarts to many projects for my firm, Terra Soma. Our largest effort together was the Minnesota Food Charter, where we were full partners in crime and collaboration, on a major, multi-year strategic communications campaign. Lindsi is kind-hearted, intelligent, and easy to work with—her work is always on time, on budget, and on point.”
“bushCONNECT is a massive undertaking. We have a limited number of tickets available and rely heavily on our social media to reach the people who can’t attend. By sharing so many elements of what’s happening with our different social feeds, we’re able to engage beyond our current following and inspire others to think bigger and think different.
Lindsi and her team put together a thorough plan that gave me total confidence in their abilities. I was able to focus my energy on other aspects of our event, and not worry about our social media engagement. They shut down spam, created exciting content on the spot and engaged with our followers throughout the day. After the event, they provided us with everything we needed to showcase the online engagement of the day. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.”
“Lindsi and Sara have been professional, responsive, fun, creative and great to work with.”
“They understand both our goals and limitations and work to find creative ways to create exactly what we need. Plus, they are connected to the broader community and have connected us with many great partners we wouldn’t have reached on our own.”
