Brand Communications and Communications Outsourcing

Have you ever needed to cover for communications staff during leave or fill the gap between hiring communications directors?

Do you need outsourced communications services to help do the “little” things that keep your organization humming, like social media management, email management and website upkeep? We can help!

Numerous nonprofits have called upon BC/DC Ideas to fill in the gaps in their communications services.

We have helped organizations:

  • Write and post on social media
  • Manage social media communities and comment moderation
  • Email design and deployment
  • Website content management
  • Event marketing and promotion
  • Paid advertising placement: Facebook Ads, Promoted Tweets, LinkedIn Ads, Google Ads
  • SEO fine-tuning
  • Local media relations and event listings
  • Communications reporting - social media, email and website analytics

For some organizations, this is a long-term solution that allows you to have access to award-winning communications strategy and implementation for years. For other organizations, it’s a short assignment to fill in for hiring gaps or during medical, maternity or paternity leave.

Do you need a little help around the office to ensure your communications are effective and efficient?
