The #DoBigGood Difference

Do Big Good is a consulting firm that operates like tech startup. 

We bring innovation from the tech sector to the social sector, resulting in a new kind of firm that provides fast turnaround, simple pricing, clear design, and customized products for every client.   

Here's how:

SIMPLE Strategies in HOURS, not Months

At Do Big Good, we believe that basic actionable strategies can be created in hours or days, not weeks or months. 

How is this possible? We have a unique method of quickly getting to the core strategic questions of objective, audience, metrics, and timeline that you'll have to experience to believe.

Why work in this way?  Because no matter how careful you are, there will be gaps between your strategic assumptions and the complex reality of the social problem you are addressing.  There is no substitute for getting your strategy out into the world to test and refine it.

E-Service PACKAGES to GEt you STARTED

When you sign up for an online service you choose a package with clear features for a clear price.  Wouldn't it be nice if consulting firms worked that way as well, instead of hitting you with a huge price tag after the initial consultation?  Well, we like price transparency too.  That's why we offer three basic package of online-only services - Launchpad, Take-Off, and Orbit - for straightforward package rates.  And, of course, we're happy to discuss custom packages as well.

ACCESS FROM ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY...OR WORLD

The Internet allows us to access music, entertainment, and information wherever we are.  Now that access is possible for social change strategy as well.  By using free online communication tools for video conferencing, collaborative document creation, and easy document sharing, Do Big Good is able to work with clients anywhere in the country or the world.  For example, our current clients are based in the American Midwest as South as well as Brazil, Colombia, and Austria.  In the new digital economy, it's as easy as being around the corner.  Just get in touch.

Strategies You will ♥ to Read

You've read a strategy report before.  Or, rather, you've tried to read one.  It's just so boring.  Pages and pages of text.  Maybe a graph or two.  Never again. 

At Do Big Good we believe that a social change strategy (what we can an "Impact Plan") should be as pleasurable and easy to use as a well-designed piece of software

We pride ourselves on presenting strategic insights beautifully, clearly, and concisely.  Most Impact Plans clock in at under 20 pages of great insights, briefly stated, including your objective, audience, timeline, metrics, and a theory of change that brings it all together.  Spend less time reading your strategic plan and more time implementing it.  

 

Every strategy is HandMade

At Do Big Good, we take a lot of cues from the tech sector, but on this point we differ.  Unlike an online service, where you are just one subscriber among many, with us you are an individual and your project is treated with the unique care it deservesMary Joyce, our Founder and Chief Strategist, works with every client individually to develop a strategy that will help them achieve their social change goals. 

So, what are you waiting for?  It's free to begin.  Isn't it time to try a better way?
