Working With Us
“It’s not who you know … it’s what you know they know.”
That expression amusingly defines the role of an agency like BLPR. We’re brand storytellers. We’re a small boutique with big ideas. We’re not afraid to recommend new ideas.
Because you never know when a breakthrough will occur.
Bringing big ideas to life.
To achieve the remarkable, we rely on consultants to help with everything from ideation and planning to implementation and follow-up.
It’s the way the world works today – at least an open source world that thrives on innovation and value. Fortunately, our memories are long, our contact lists are deep and we’ve earned a reputation with our consulting partners for fair rates, hands-on management and strategic focus.
People like to work with us and for our clients. We’re proud of that.
Big ideas have legs.
We find that most PR firms focus on media relations and some will broaden their perspective to include other key stakeholders (e.g. shareholders, employees, existing customers, etc.). Our approach to brand message development works to create a strategic set of messages that deliver a consistent set of values and positions to everyone.
In short, we make sure our clients’ messages and the stories that contain them can run around the block a few times and are still able to deliver.
More specifically, we work our clients to make sure the successful deployment of those messages result in some kind of measurable result. We are constantly thinking in terms of “engagement” – going far beyond the way that word has been turned into a mindless piece of jargon by other professional marketers and communicators.
Expanding the team is good for ideas – and that’s good for your brand.
In the past, we’ve added consultants to our team from a wide variety of backgrounds including (but not limited to) the following: Neuro-linguistic programming, customer service training, custom application development, test kitchens and flavor panels, flower arranging, organic farming, process engineering, industrial design, political research, steamboat history, inter-tribal relations (in Africa), media relations with home shopping networks, motion picture film making and production, diplomacy, international currency trading, port security and more.
All of the consultants we add to our team join us with a common understanding of how they are to perform, the way they are to interact with the client, how they are to charge for their time and how they compliment the process. This flexibility has allowed us to remain focused on the branding, marketing and communications issues that lie at the heart of our clients’ problems and to meet our clients’ needs in ways they often do not expect.
