Strategy is Our Heartbeat
Think strategically. Act simply. That is our motto. When you do the heavy lifting first—fully understanding your community, knowing who you are, seeing where you are in the process, charting out a course for where you are going, and thinking through all the possibilities—then moving forward is simple. As a consulting firm, we're different. We work in relationship to help our clients connect at the core—enabling them to spend less on traditional marketing and spend more time resonating the values that make them great.
Engagement is your ability to connect with people right where they are—to relate, and to cause them to believe that you understand what they're going through, and that you have the answers. Engagement done well, keeps people coming back, and great engagement inspires those people to go deeper.
who we consult for
In the course of a year, we serve churches with attendances ranging from 150 to 15,000. We serve ministries whose footprints span from 1 person to 100 nations. We also serve smart businesses that "get it."
What makes you the right fit for our consulting services?
Simple: A passion and commitment to go to the next level.
For us, it's an all out blitz—pulling together demographics and psychographics with organic field studies, and anonymous visitor reviews (of you and the competition)—helping you evaluate through proprietary analytics. All this to bring a giant mirror in the room so you fully understand where you are as an organization and understand where you need to improve in order to reach your goals.
Because our approach is an all out blitz, it's not just a project to us. It's a service we provide, in relationship. It's the clarifying time, the 'aha!' moment, and the point at which you know you'll never go back to where you were. But now, armed with a greater understanding of who you are, you're ready to charge the mountain.
the people test
Most organizations who lack the growth they desire often attibute the growth shortage to a lack of advertising or a poor brand, but engagement starts at the core.
- Is your visitor retention healthy (are 25% or more of your visitors returning)?
- Are you taking them deeper into discipleship?
- Do you have enough volunteers?
- Are your regulars inviting their friends without prodding?
- Is your brand something to be proud of?
- Are you a master of consistency?
- Have you master-planned your church's health and growth?
If you answered "No" on any of these questions, it might be time to start re-evaluating your approach—and that's what our strategic consulting is all about.
"Artistry Labs helped us see ourselves for who we truly were and gave us a vision for who we could become. They gave us targets to shoot for and markers along the way to know the progress we were making. Artistry Labs has a unique ability to understand the spiritual side of working with churches. They aren't just a marketing company; they are a partner in ministry."
