Do things the way they’ve always been done?
Not at KK BOLD.
That would be b-o-r-i-n-g, and we only do … well … BOLD.
That’s why we’ve put a new twist on our community service project. We could’ve just picked a non-profit/not-for-profit agency to receive our services. Instead, we made the brave decision to boldly go where no local agency has gone before.
We’re putting it to a vote of people. Power to the people; right on.
Here’s how it works: We want you to take a bold Step Up! by Dec. 1, 2013, and tell us about a worthy non-profit/not-for profit agency that could benefit from receiving up to $15,000 in KK BOLD’s creative services at no charge. You heard it right – nada, zip, zero, zilch – for a whole lotta BOLD. To be eligible, the organization must be located in Bismarck/Mandan or Minot (our two in-state service areas) or have a statewide mission (a lot like us!).
KK BOLD will select the top six entries on Dec. 5, 2013, and— voilà – let the fun begin! The winner will be determined by public voting on our KK BOLD Facebook page, and voting will close on Dec. 20, 2013. So, if your nominee makes the cut, tell your friends to vote … and they can tell their friends … and then the whole wide world might get involved. Who knows, our KK BOLD Facebook page just might IMPLODE! (It would be good if you “like” us before it does.)
The winner will be announced on Dec. 23, 2013 – just in time for Christmas! What exactly will KK BOLD do for the non-profit/not-for-profit group that wins the contest? That depends on their needs. We offer a broad range of advertising, branding, website development, social media, special event promotions, graphic design, public relations and marketing services. Your nomination will include a brief statement of need, such as “ABC Agency could really use a new website!” Or “The LMNOP Group needs a brochure that explains their services.” Or “XYZ Organization is hosting our first BIG event next summer, and we don’t know anything about special event planning.”
That’s when KK BOLD will take a bold Step Up! Not that we’re miracle workers, but, truthfully, we’re pretty darn good. We’re confident that, when the project is complete sometime in 2014, the non-profit/not-for-profit agency will have taken a bold Step Up! in communicating with its members, donors – heck, maybe even the whole darn planet!
The bottom line: Clients who work with us can be confident the end product will be a bold Step Up! in establishing and promoting their brand. And, when you can get it for free, well, that’s just buttery, mouth-watering, choc-o-licious icing on the cake.
How BOLD is that?
