Our Services

You have an important message or call to action that needs to be amplified. Let us help you make it happen.

We are specialists in accelerating social impact by crafting powerful messages that stick.

 
 

Communications Strategy

This is the core of who we are and what we do. We work best when we can work off of your priorities and goals. We align communications goals, strategies, and tactics that help you achieve your goals.

How we do it depends on time and budget. Research first is best, since it helps build effective messages for the right audiences. How to reach them and get them to sign up, change their minds, advocate, donate, volunteer, or buy is next. And then we can help to execute and measure impact.

Digital Strategy & Media Relations

While this part falls under communication strategies, sometimes clients come to us for specific digital and/or media strategies. We believe you can’t do one without the other and they better be integrated ASAP. Or else.

We are media relations specialists. Our firm is more than 15-years-old, and the founders are “sage.” Media strategy has always been our core competency. We eat news for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and love it. And now digital strategies are always integrated into our plans.

  • Press conferences and events
  • Social media strategies
 

Reputation Management / Crisis Communications

Bad things happen to good people. And nonprofits and foundations. Oh, and schools, universities, and companies. Even city agencies. We can help you communicate in bad times, too.

Sage partners have extensive experience helping clients navigate difficult situations and rebuild trust. We are happy to share some case studies in person; not online. 🙂
