Our Process

At Angel Oak Creative, we’re experts at marketing for nonprofits. We know the unique struggles that come along with restricted funds, boards of directors and limited staff. And we appreciate the fact that each nonprofit is different. That’s why we don’t have a one-size-fits-all plan. Our process is designed with nonprofits in mind to pinpoint the specific needs of every client.


The opportunities and pain points of an established nonprofit will look very different from a fledgling organization still trying to solidify its mission. But no worries. Our proven process allows us the flexibility to churn out the needed results for both.


If you’re ready to revolutionize your organization’s marketing efforts, please contact us today.

Mission Click


We start by listening. Tell us all about your work, your mission, your vision and your challenges. We’ll listen to your needs and help you understand how effective marketing can confront those challenges.


Our goal is not to work with just anyone but rather with organizations we jive with. What a word choice! And when there’s a fit, there’s no stopping the wave of impact we’ll unleash together!

Team Integration


When we come on board, we cease being outsiders. We immerse ourselves in your organization’s culture, processes and community. Remember, if we’ve gotten to this point, it means we believe in the work you’re doing and have more at stake than just the effectiveness of your designs and strategy.


We care about you and the work you do. While we greatly enjoy the behind-the-scenes work we do on your behalf, we strive to make it out to see your mission in action whenever we get the chance!

The Discovery Session


This one may seem pretty self explanatory, and it is. We sit down with you to uncover everything there is to possibly know about your organization. Don’t worry, there is definitely a method to the madness, and we’ll guide you through the whole process.


More often than not, both the issues that you’re well aware of and the ones you didn’t even know you had come out in these sessions. Before someone can come up with a solution, they have to first get a grasp on all of the problems and the ripple effects of those problems. And that’s exactly what we dig up during our discovery sessions.

Vision Casting and Traction

This is where the magic happens. We’ve clicked, we’ve become part of your team and we’ve unearthed everything there is to know about your organization. Now it’s time for the strategy. Based on everything we’ve learned in the discovery session, we’ll build out your customized plan.


Whether you’ve hired us to completely manage your marketing efforts or simply to design your annual report, we’re going to provide strategic direction along with the execution. This proactive feedback can be anything from advising you on the best email marketing platform to go with to recommending the marketing tactics that will give you the most bang for your buck.

Mission to Life

Everything has come together, and now it’s time to start making moves. With strategic plan in hand, we’ll begin executing the marketing tactics necessary to achieve your goals. The ultimate goal is that we’ll bring in the results while simultaneously increasing your capacity to do what you do best!

Impact Measured

We relentlessly track the effectiveness of our work so we can keep you informed on what’s working, what’s not working and how close we are to reaching your goals. This data is crucial to knowing what efforts to invest time in and what efforts to scrap all together. We collect and organize all of our measurements in a monthly report but are willing to provide more frequent insight at your request.


Ultimately, we want to ensure that everything we’re doing is helping you move the needle, whether that is raising more funds or increasing your exposure in your community.
