GRANT APPLICATIONS must be well written and properly formatted. They must meet submission requirements and deadlines. Most importantly, however, they must woo grant administrators and stand out from the competition.

When competing for available funds — whether they are from a government department, private corporation, charitable foundation, or some other organization — it is imperative that grant proposal submissions are geared specifically to a target audience. Proper “grantsmanship” means writing proposals using the vernacular and terminology of the target, showing respect to that organization’s culture and mission.

With a trained Grant Proposal Writer on staff, Persuasive Communications can help you produce a refined, targeted submission that will get you closer to your funding goals.

OUR PROCESS

  • + -

    STEP 1: Listen & Learn

    EACH ORGANIZATION has its own set of particulars. Complex markets, political sensitivities, or specific business rules are just a few of the nuanced considerations that will influence your marketing communications considerations. That’s why our consulting and production services begin with good old-fashioned listening. Before we make any recommendations or begin any creative project, we first get a handle on all the details that make your company unique.

    STEP 2: Research & Plan

    OUR EXPERIENCE, skill set, and expertise certainly enables us to provide solid marketing communications direction — but, even so, we never stop learning. Each of our projects is carefully considered and well thought out. We address each organization as a unique entity with unique challenges, and that requires thorough study and strategic planning.

    STEP 3: Propose & Revise

    OUR CLIENTS are never hands-off. We walk step-by-step alongside the organizations we advise. Once we have identified a set of solutions that will address your organization’s unique challenges, we will present our proposed plan for your input and revision. No one knows your company as well as you do. If you’re not happy with the plan, it doesn’t go forward.

    STEP 4: Develop & Implement

    THE PRODUCTION STAGE is when the conceptual becomes tangible. From copywriting and design to placement and Web development, we can help your organization realize its marketing communications vision. Though this productive phase is often fun and exciting, it can be costly, too — project scope creep and deadline extensions are just two ways a poorly managed project can go sour. But we don’t let that happen. We are true project managers. We offer regular communication about each project’s standing, and we are readily available for check-ins and updates.

    STEP 5: Manage & Measure

    CAMPAIGNS DON’T END after launch. Whether it’s a print ad, a Internet landing page, or something more complex, like a portfolio of complementing pieces of collateral, it needs to be evaluated. We don’t measure success by completion alone; we strive for quantifiable effectiveness. Web analytics, sales numbers, user surveys — these are just a few of the tools we employ to analyze a marketing communications effort. Then, we apply what we learn to the next campaign, making constant improvement part of our routine processes.
