Vision

We seek the success of local businesses and nonprofits resulting in the renewal of vibrant small-town communities

Problem

Almost all small organizations either lack the time, manpower, or training to design and implement all of their projects outside their many day-to-day tasks.

Our job is to supplement our client’s team with project-specific staff and managers.

Think of us as an adopted department to bring your ideas to fruition.

Range of Experience

Our portfolio varies from small start-up shops to Fortune 500 companies, local elected officials to presidential candidates, and small nonprofits to some of the largest foundations in the world.

Key to Success

We project manage development and communication solutions. The key to our success is inserting ourselves into an organization to relieve the stress of new projects tacked onto the day-to-day.

Cross-Functional Team

Our full-time partners rely on contractors, ranging in experience from undergraduates or retirees, from many different bodies of knowledge such as process engineering and graphic design.

Performance Based Contracting

Both sides incentivized. That’s our preference. It’s important to us that our services don’t just become a line item on your list of expenditures. Create measurable value. Sometimes that’s hard to quantify, but in the case of Sales Representation and Grant Writing, there’s a clear link between success of the project and getting paid with a commission-based deal structure.

Grant Writing

Upon the undertaking of a new project, it can be overwhelming to plan exactly what you need to achieve success. One of the main concerns is funding. This fear, fortunately, can be abated through receiving a grant. A grant proposal normally requests funding to support projects, ideas, or activities that are in alignment with the mission of the specific grant agency, and finding a grantmaker with similar views can be one of the most challenging parts of writing a grant proposal. Here at Kafferlin Strategies, however, we have the skills, team, and relationships to find suitable partners. Grant writing is not a simple process, and that is why here at Kafferlin Strategies we recommend our clients look to us for help. There are multiple steps to writing a successful grant proposal following the discovery the right foundation. Besides the actual writing of the proposal, someone needs to analyze the purpose, research information, and format and edit the document for errors as well as style. Every grantmaker is different, and each foundation has its own set of requirements. Our team is not only prepared to work closely with your organization or projects to fully understand your goals, but we will also ensure that your proposal is in line with the stipulations of the specific foundation. Through this information we will be able to assist in successfully completing this project. Kafferlin Strategies is prepared to offer grant writing services for nonprofit organizations, businesses, education groups, and up and coming projects. We can even help you get letters of support to help set your specific proposal apart from the rest. Many people are able to write successful grants on their own, but sometimes it takes a team to make your specific proposal extra special; let Kafferlin Strategies be that team.

Sales Representation

Maybe you’re a small business owner who is ready to take your business global. Or, maybe you’re a manager at an established company that has struggled to overcome a “drought” in new contracts. Whatever your goal is, let Kafferlin Strategies help you break through to the next level with our comprehensive sales and marketing representation. Our team of professionals has exposure to a wide variety of industries, and will take the time to understand your business. We’ll use this personal attention to attract leads and make a winning case as to why your business is truly your clients’ best option. In an unpredictable economy, expanding your in-house sales team is fraught with risk. By outsourcing some tasks to a sales partner, you can start to let us lift the weight off you without concern. Become more agile, reduce your risk and enjoy increased sales at a competitive cost by allowing Kafferlin Strategies to augment your current sales structure. You might wonder if you can trust an outsider to treat your clients the way you would treat them yourself.  We understand this, which is why we take our role as ambassador of your brand and image very seriously.  Many companies offer sales representation, but few offer the personal touch of Kafferlin Strategies’ team. For most of our clients, we do this through leveraging our existing relationships and at trade shows.
