how ziggy can help
Good communications undoubtedly lead to better business results – whether you are a brand, a budding entrepreneur, a charity or a business looking to develop its higher purpose.
But we are all suffering from communication overload as not only are we are bombarded with up to 10,000 messages a day, but the human attention span has shortened from 12 seconds to 8 seconds in little under a decade.
Your customers are being swamped; not just by the sheer volume of messages but also the mountains of jargon and “sector speak” that obscures what the sender is trying to say.
Ziggy Consultancy helps clients cut through the noise and connect more efficiently with their target audiences.
We do this by developing engaging propositions, meaningful messaging and creative work. So whether you need to articulate your key message or offering, develop your brand strategy and business development plans, set up good practices or mentor your teams, Ziggy will be with you all the way; helping you to get your voice heard and achieve the results you want.
“The single biggest problem in communications
is the illusion that it has taken place”
George Bernard Shaw

without clarity and cut-through

There is an increasing need for businesses and charities to work together: businesses are finding it more and more important to deliver purpose beyond profit; to realize their vision for the future, maximize their social impact and attract and retain employees, and at the same time charities need to partner with visionary businesses in order to help fulfill their mission.
Ziggy Consultancy works to bridge the gap between these two sectors by applying business knowledge and experience to help non-profits communicate more effectively with companies, including:
