With us, service isn't just a concept.
We work with clients to develop an effective message and ensure that message is heard by the right people. Whether it’s implementing a digital strategy, refining your brand, navigating a crisis, raising public support for issues or devising a business strategy, we help clients build their business.
In addition to offering integrated marketing communications and government relations services, a nationally recognized journalist leads our content development division with support from a wide network of content experts. If you have an interesting story to tell, we'll help you refine the idea and develop and write a clear, concise yet lively story to run in newspapers, digital outlets, proprietary publications, blogs and more. Our content creation services include traditional storytelling narratives, press releases, op-eds, social media posts and more. Together, we can come up with the best strategy to fit your needs.
PUBLIC AFFAIRS & PUBLIC POLICY
ECONOMIC IMPACT STRATEGIES
At Kanati Strategies, service isn’t just a concept, it’s our philosophy. Having spent years as “the client”, we decided there is a better way to operate.
Our business is built on the premise that by having our founders work directly with clients, we can be more strategic and nimble.
Whatever the need, we will custom-build an approach. We offer diverse services in-house, including strategic marketing communications, community relations, tribal affairs, public affairs and public policy. We also partner with the best in their respective fields to deliver unique and expert services. These relationships are hand-picked and managed by us so that it’s a seamless experience for clients.
Our model is an alternative to a traditional agency, but it results in a more focused strategy, less overhead and the ability to scale our services to meet your unique needs.
Our name is rooted in Cherokee legend. As guardian of the hunt, Kanati was known to be careful, responsible and fair. We apply those same principles to the work we perform for our clients.
