Meet our strategic marketing team.

Prosper Strategies works exclusively with mission-driven organizations, so we understand the unique challenges and opportunities of nonprofits and for-profit social impact companies when it comes to marketing and PR.

We’re well adept when it comes to educating audiences, engaging stakeholders and inciting action among potential customers, donors and supporters through traditional and digital marketing and PR tactics. That’s why we hire only hybrid professionals with multidisciplinary skills who are just as comfortable managing your social media channels as they are talking with reporters or building an end-to-end inbound marketing campaign. We’re proud to be home to experts in branding and strategy, media, social, web and search optimization, inbound marketing and more.

Our team members don’t specialize in just one tactic or practice area. Instead, they specialize in building strategies that work for our nonprofit, for-profit social impact and education clients. It’s a difference we know you’ll appreciate.

How we’re different.


Almost anyone can execute on tactics. Our real strength lies in building smart communications strategies that position our clients for measurable growth. At the onset of every client engagement, we embark on an ambitious strategic planning process that utilizes primary and secondary research, deep market and customer insights, and creative-thinking to engineer a roadmap for your success. And the strategic thinking doesn’t stop when the plan is complete. We’re continually strategizing every minute of every day as we work to bring our ideas to life for your business.


Your needs likely evolve quickly and change frequently. Luckily, we’re great at keeping up. Because we’re a small firm, we’re free from the bureaucracy and layers of control that slow other, larger agencies down. This allows us to stay nimble and adjust our strategy so that our programs stay at peak performance 100% of the time. Some say we’re a small agency. We prefer scrappy.


We don’t agree with those who say PR is more about who you know than what you know, but our network is crucial to our success. From our immediate, internal network of experts in everything from search engine optimization to social media advertising, to our external network of reporters, thought leaders and entrepreneurs, we have the connections to make big things happen.


We enjoy working with entrepreneurs because we are entrepreneurs. We understand what it’s like to eat, sleep, live and breathe your business. You deserve a marketing partner who approaches your growth just as passionately as you do. That’s what we bring to the table at Prosper Strategies.


The days of marketing guesswork are long gone. Everything we do can and must be measured. We set ambitious goals and utilize advanced data and analytics to measure how we’re tracking against them. We uncover key insights and share them with our clients frequently throughout the course of our campaigns. Doing so keeps us accountable and helps us discover new opportunities to continually improve our efforts.
