POUNCE Solutions is a marketing strategy, communication planning, and problem-solving consultancy for mission-driven organizations.
We've reimagined the traditional marketing agency model, offering a nimble and creative approach that empowers your brand. We bypass the tired industry jargon and tactics to bring you fresh, agile, and results-oriented solutions.
We are thinkers and strategists, offering unique strengths and collective agility that reflect our feline ethos. Our decentralized structure ensures we deliver timely, budget-conscious, and scalable results to help your organization roar.
EVERYONE SAYS THEY'RE DIFFERENT
We actually are - in ways that matter.
We didn't start POUNCE because the world needs another run-of-the-mill marketing agency. It doesn't. We started our journey on your side of the client-consultant table, wondering why the tail was constantly wagging the cat.
POUNCE is different from the ground up. We don't peddle in one-size-fits-all formulas, inflated fees, or blinding you with marketing jargon. Instead, POUNCE dives headfirst into each partnership by deeply understanding what makes your organization purr.
This process involves delving into your world, posing questions, challenging preconceptions, and seamlessly integrating with your team. By ensuring everything we do is tied back to your mission, our solutions are designed to amplify your impact and bottom line.
NINE LIVES: SOLUTIONS THAT MAKE US PURR
As marketing "generalists," we've generally been there, strategized that, and led teams of specialists through flawless execution.
Marketing and communications are more than budget line items - they are the heartbeat of a mission-driven organization. If your marketing is missing the mark, let's work through a marketing strategy or communication plan that can turn your organization around.
Once we have a plan, our expertise, recognition, and proven track records can shine with the following solutions:
STORYTELLING / GHOSTWRITING
Let's go deeper than the mechanical process of "copywriting" and define the soul of your organization. Humans connect with humans, not brands, so let's craft a face, heartbeat, and inspiring narrative that will motivate your target buyers/donors.
Every discovery conversation starts with the core mission of your organization. What do you want to accomplish? From there, we can collaborate to define and align target customers/donors, messaging, channels and metrics to achieve your short-, medium- and long-term goals.
As Jeff Bezos quipped, "Your brand is what other people say about you when you're not in the room." If that's good, we can identify ways to reinforce that and avoid crises. If it's bad, indifferent or unknown, we can provide creative, data-driven ways to get you back on track.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
Whether your goal is community building, thought leadership or advertising, we have the organic and paid social strategies to meet your ideal customers/donors where they already are. The year 2021 was the first time a social media site overtook Google as the most popular website. Are you where your people are looking?
In a highly distracted world, attention is the ultimate currency. Whatever your goals or preferred channels - traditional news, alternative or social media - we have the contacts, context and content to raise your profile and help drive the conversation.
Your organization's website is your digital home, a reflection of your brand's quality and mission. Whether you need to build from scratch, redesign, maintain or just groom your whiskers, we have the digital architects, engineers, designers, cleaners and security you can trust.
GRAPHIC DESIGN / VIDEO
As Derek Zoolander once pondered, "Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?" The same should be asked about brand imagery, and we can answer emphatically, "yes!" Thinking beyond what's "pretty," we'll make sure it resonates and inspires your tribe.
EMAIL / SMS / CRM
Email and text message marketing are two of the most legally regulated - and most valuable - ways to nurture your existing or target customers. Protect their personal information and CYA with hands-on management to adopt best customer practices, journeys and outcomes.
Modern marketing requires modern solutions, and influencer marketing and guerrilla tactics can be remarkably effective while being cost effective. We’ll outline the strategies and brainstorm the tactics to make your creative marketing ideas deliver ROI.
These are the boxes we can check (or sit in), but our skills and network offer boundless possibilities.
