Sample of Consulting Projects

  • American Red Cross

    Area: Southeast Michigan
    Year: 2016

    American Red Cross of Southeast Michigan is a nonprofit branch of the international organization that previews relief services to areas that need it. Specifically, this project focused on their fire-related services and outreach efforts.We provided Red Cross with a low-cost marketing plan and supplemental marketing resources to increase the number of volunteers and to increase their outreach to areas they struggled to target. We split up the marketing plan into two groups: millennial and older generation to account for their needs. Ultimately, we analyzed their need and recommended a prioritized list of marketing and promotional strategies to help achieve their goal of a 20% increase in their outreach and an increase of volunteers in lesser aware areas by over 100%.

    Testimonial from Red Cross:
    The overall experience with 180DC was a positive one. The team was very professional. In addition, they asked clarifying questions to ensure they understood the root of the problem...or the solution we were looking for. We have been struggling with the issues that 180DC address for a very long time. It was nice to have that outside opinion and how some procedures and methods really performed.
    The team exceeded our expectations greatly. The final report was well received internally as well and provided that unbiased feedback we needed to help move some items forward. We were confident in the work of the 180DC consultants to be able to present it to our board.
