Our Work

When MMS Advancement Associates wanted to strengthen its brand and position itself for growth, the firm turned to Joan B. Marcus Communications. After conducting a marketing communications audit, we developed a strong marketing message, communications plan and marketing brief. We began the implementation phase of the marketing communications plan with a logo redesign and then developed a content concept for the website as well as all content. Throughout the process, we worked closely with the website designer to ensure that MMS Advancement Associates’ marketing message was infused throughout the website.


Joan prepared our firm’s marketing message, marketing brief, marketing plan and web copy. Because having an integrated fundraising and communications plan is essential for our clients, we have also partnered with Joan in serving the nonprofit community.

Joan’s questions helped us to define our strengths, services and processes in ways that put our clients at the center of all that we do. This is exactly the way we advise nonprofit organizations to communicate with donors. Joan is a master at helping small business owners and nonprofits alike demonstrate their value and uniqueness to their audiences. Working with Joan has helped our firm expand its visibility, professional image and impact. We now have the tools we need to succeed.
