Keeping you in front of your audience
We have a number of clients to which we provide am industry-facing presence to ensure they remain visible and on the minds of their target audience. From one-on-one introductions to in-person attendance at various industry events, we can help you cover the ground you need to be covering.
Knowing where "the bodies are buried" is half the battle when we take on a new effort. We've been in the fuel space for 40 years and can lend our perspective to your new effort, or the one that's already under way.
CONNECT WITH THE FUEL INDUSTRY
Save Time, Reach Your Audience
Clients often approach us with a general idea of what they need, but not a specific plan. This is a common occurrence and our knowledge of the fuels industry saves our clients time and money. We are able to jump right in and get your company going where it needs to go. The fuel industry can be a complex space to the new or uninitiated, so let us help you get off on the right foot.
TRAINING & EDUCATION - LIVE AND ONLINE
No Planes, No Trains, No Automobiles
In May of 2021 we partnered with one of the propane industry's foremost trainers and educators, and began marketing live, online, instructor-led interactive training to the propane industry across America. Since, we have trained thousands of propane industry people. CETP, CETP Skills Assessments, HazMat Intitial and Recurrent Training, Propane Cylinder Requalification and more are in out folio. Tell us what we can do for your training and education projects.
Let us do the digging for you
Companies that are perhaps new to the fuels space, are entering a new aspect of the industry, or simply want to up their game engage us to research their target markets. From development of target lists for in-person or digital campaigns to advice on where to spend time and resources (or not) provides our clients with a cost-effective avenue to growth
A LOW KEY APPROACH
Gather Intel. Quietly.
Consider you want to test the waters for a product expansion or entrance into a new market, but you don't want to set off alarms. Let us do the looking while keeping you in the background. Our knowledge of the industry and its moving parts allow us to get answers without tipping your hand to the competition.
A FRESH SET OF EYES
Change Is Good
Ask us to review your current operations and provide advice on what is good for you and good for your customers. A third party provides subjective analysis of your company structure, culture, and processes absent the emotion that often stands in the way of change.
TRADE ASSOCIATION SERVICES
20+ years of running associations
Trade associations are often understaffed and so focused on the "right now" that the "Let's do this" never hits the front burner. We have a track record of dramatic trade association growth using proven approaches to membership development, non-dues revenue, events, and new programs. A recent association client grew membership by 45% in just over 4 years, and non-dues Corporate Sponsorship revenue jumped 340%.
