Planning an Upcoming Campaign: Key Considerations
• First and Foremost – Create Trust
Trust is the one thing that you absolutely must foster if you’re looking to create a long-term relationship with a customer or donor. If they can’t trust what you’re saying – or selling – you won’t get the current ask, and it certainly makes any future asks an even bigger hurdle. Be honest and upfront with your pitch, and you’ll automatically be one step closer to reaching your goals. Begin with your budget, working with vendors, and your optimal scheduling needs. If you have deadlines, special requests, or specific goals, we’re always happy to work with you!
• Planning and Communication
Every campaign is an important campaign. Of course, our team always wants to do our best to accommodate your project requirements. The current availability of certain types and brands of paper has sometimes lengthened lead times by weeks. If you know you will need delivery of your print job in less than four weeks, let’s have a conversation about your project as soon as possible.
• The Trust Factor
When creating a campaign, keep your ask – and your claims – realistic. If your donors or customers can’t trust you, they won’t invest in your idea. Make sure the outcome of your campaign is reachable and measurable. Being honest and realistic helps build trust, and makes not only the current “ask” palatable, but makes future “asks” even easier to close.
• Be Proactive

The more we communicate in advance of your needs and deadlines, the better we can plan for – and help you achieve – your project objectives.
