We help you connect with humans (aka, your customers) to grow your business

Days of simply being a passive consumer are over. With the endless options of social sharing tools available, people have transitioned from being passive consumers, to being active creators sharing how they feel with the intention of being heard.

We have spent 10 years building a methodology to study human engagement, and have tested out this theory with clients all over the world. We believe in the power of human connection, and we understand the way humans think. Sales are more than a conversion metric, they’re ultimately a meaningful transaction between two humans beings.

Our understanding of engagement (and human behavior) will help your business -- because most every business is comprised of humans (at least for now), and is trying to sell something to humans. We understand how to activate humans into brand advocates, which will help your company grow with intention.

Why we want to work with you:

We can support you in building your business from the inside out, by teaching your team the power of engagement. You’ll learn how to leverage it in everything you do to grow your bottom line. We’ll start by teaching you our process, and then execute on what we collaboratively decide is best for your brand.

 

Our method:

Our method focuses on activating your internal customers (your employees) and then spanning out to activate your external customers into brand advocates:
