FAQs

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers simple”  Dr. Seuss

WHAT SETS THE LOWCOUNTRY GROUP APART FROM YOUR COMPETITION?

We believe that it is not about us- but it is about you- your needs, your team and your goals.  From the get-go, we listen and we keep listening. We believe that by working as a team, together we amplify the good that you are already doing.

Plus, we bring rigor, accountability and transparency to the process and to the organization.  Taken together, these are powerful tools that resonate with consumers, volunteers and donors.  

DO YOU WORK WITH NONPROFITS AND FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS?

 

We believe that “non-profit” is really a tax status and it is really a business.  As such, the methods and practices are interchangeable if you want to transform your organization.  At the end of the day, who we work with are organizations (for profit, nonprofit, social enterprise- whatever you want to call it) who make the world a better place.  A restaurant that strives for sustainability, or a nonprofit saving our planet from climate change- we can help your organization maximize its potential.

 

YOU TALK A LOT ABOUT RIGOR, ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY- WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

We have studied, started and run successful for-profit businesses.  When we reviewed the top 100 performing businesses (from start-ups to Fortune 500) we found that they all had rigor, accountability and transparency.  Running a nonprofit is hard work, yet following our system you’ll find increased morale, more efficient business practices and ultimately ...increased revenue.

I SEE THAT YOU DO FEASIBILITY STUDIES AND CAPITAL CAMPAIGNS, CAN’T MY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR JUST DO IT?

Is there a professional athlete who never used a coach?  No. In your career, did you ever rely on a mentor to help challenge you and grow?  Most likely yes.

We’re your coach.  We can help you if your organization and people have zero experience. If you have a highly experienced Development Director, then we can scale back our services to be there as needed.  Just like a diet, every campaign hits a plateau. By having us there,we strategize with you to move to the next level.

 

I REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND SEO.

Imagine search engines like Google, have “minions” searching really quickly through thousands of search options.  The better your site piques the interest of a minion or two- the more your organization is going to show up. Remember...it is called the world wide web for a reason.  With that in mind….make sure yours stands out over a site in Iceland or Madagascar.

WHY DOES MY ORGANIZATION NEED TO DO E-MARKETING?

Every organization we’ve worked with has stated that “word-of-mouth” is the way the number one way volunteers and donors find them. When we talk to volunteers and donors, they state that they also looked for validation online.

However for those seeking services, the number one way is the internet.  They saw an ad on Facebook, or they were searching for services and the organization’s ad came up etc.  

To increase the good that you’re already doing- let us help you with an e-marketing program to help.
