Our Approach

At Grimm & Grove, we help you think bigger. Bolder. Better.

For whatever you’re trying to achieve.

Some might think of us as marketing and communications experts.
We call ourselves your partner.

We’re Your Strategic Advisors: We’re just as comfortable sitting at your C-suite table as we are working with the rest of your team. We shape ideas, roll up our sleeves, and then we deliver to create new visibility and engagement.

We’re both Hands-On and High-Level: We bring a team of creative experts who become partners in your passion. Getting your organization to the next level may be hard work, but we also make it fun and engaging through every phase of the journey. And you’ll find our enthusiasm contagious.

We Make Connections: The one thing that really sets Grimm & Grove apart? It’s our ability to make connections. Not just with influencers, but also between audiences and organizations that haven’t yet realized the benefits of teaming up.

We Focus on Your Outcomes: At the end of the day, it’s all about results. Our creative, dedicated approach moves mountains, and keeps our clients coming back to us again and again, project after project, mountain after mountain.

We promise to work on your business like it’s our own. Because to us, it is.

Grimm & Grove. We not only get it, we get it done.

Our Expertise

We deliver creative marketing and communications ideas that work because of our unique perspective. We see the big world in which you operate. But we also see it in ways you may not.  This “fresh eyes” approach allows us to understand what your organization truly needs. Armed with this knowledge, we put together the right combination of our offerings to achieve or surpass your goals. And you’ll never see us take the same approach twice.

We’re insightful, we’re resourceful, we’re fun – and we’re on your team.

Strategic Communications

Think of it as a three-step process:  1.  Find and know your audience: who they are and where they are.  2.  Develop the most creative message – one that will stand out among the clutter.  3. Deliver your message through the most effective channels, meeting your organization’s strategic goals for growth, engagement, and visibility.


You’re different than your competitors. Let’s make sure the world knows it. We identify your distinct value proposition and how you can further set your organization apart. By starting with your differentiator, we build creative marketing strategies and tactics to reach your target audience. Then we roll up our collective sleeves and get it done.

Public Relations

We’re all about the buzz. Grimm & Grove excels at building relationships with the media (digital and traditional) to get your brand talked about and promoted in the most positive of lights. Trouble ahead? We can also protect your brand with crisis communications management.


Who are you? A company executive who needs to be perceived as a thought leader? A non-profit chief who needs new connections? An organization that needs a competitive edge? Our networks and strategies will position you – in whatever way, shape, or form you need.


The wonderful thing about branding is that you can be anything you want to be – as long as it is something you truly are. We also understand that branding is only as powerful as the strategy behind it. So we conduct research and translate key insights into a brand that not only speaks to your target audiences, but also creates loyalty and fosters ongoing engagement.


There are two sides of this coin so to speak. And we know both of them. We know what drives donors and how to get them to give – but it goes beyond that. We want them to become deeply engaged with your organization. If you’re a corporation, we’re expert at developing corporate giving programs that demonstrate, in a real way, your commitment and passion for your community and align your brand with your giving.

Public Affairs

Building a solid, strategic and successful public affairs campaign requires many elements, including awareness of potential landmines, building community support, developing partnerships, and ramping up your image.
