Highstone Associates offers strategic planning services for organizations seeking a pathway to growth. We work closely with you to identify your internal strengths and resources which can serve as a foundation for your future success. We explore the environmental opportunities for growth, looking for areas where you can differentiate your organization and stand out from the crowd in order to maximize opportunities for optimal returns on your investments. We work closely with you to design realistic and pragmatic plans that can be effectively implemented within your budget constraints and we're available to participate in on-going implementation of those plans. We're comfortable working with product or service organizations, and we've worked primarily in business-to-business and government-to-business situations. We're probably not your best choice if you have a consumer product goods offering.
Highstone Associates Inc., has considerable experience bringing new products to market effectively. We're not an advertising agency, or a PR firm, or anything like that. We're a strategic consultancy which helps design and implement effective multi-channel, multi-media initiatives which get results. We know when to bring in experts in specific areas and we know who those experts are and how to best work with them. We work closely with your marketing and product managers to develop innovative and memorable campaigns that reach decision makers and buyers. We create messaging and positioning that makes your offering stand out and that tells your story uniquely. And we make sure that the message reaches the right audience.
