By Kim Reiner Whether it’s social, scientific, economic, or political, businesses and nonprofits today are more often taking a position on issues. Publicly aware companies have become the norm, touting their policies to stand out from a crowd when trying to bring in new clients or employees and build audiences. In fact, many brands proudly share their values publicly on social media, in advertisements, and on their homepages. Yet very few businesses–at least in Nebraska–take the extra step to go beyond talking the talk and proving their commitment through a B Corp Certification . The private certification of for-profit companies means a business meets high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency ranging from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials. In December 2021, the marketing firm KidGlov—a

Seven Steps to Create a Successful Annual Marketing Plan

There are two types of marketers in the world; those who love creating a strategic marketing plan, and those who look upon this process with dread. I’m the first kind of marketer. I absolutely love creating strategic marketing plans, and I’ve done well over 100 plans for a variety of clients in my career.  Regardless of which camp you are in, I have seven steps that will lead you to a successful plan.

KidGlov is proud to be one of a handful of B Corporations here in Nebraska . We’re certified by a third-party that we are using business as a force for good.

During that conference, I learned how it’s more important than ever to stay on top of what’s working best for social impact agencies. One of those includes taking time to make connections with like-minded people in your community. In this industry, you probably wear about ten hats in your agency and are very busy but make the time and understand the value of staying connected to like-minded individuals. Here are three tips to maximize your time when making those connections.  Bring a question, leave with ideas Prior to going to a networking event or a
