Welcome to Acclaro and thank you for your interest in our offer for pro bono agency services!

First a little about us…Acclaro is a strategic marketing and advertising agency.  We’ve been around for 14 years and have had the pleasure of working with some of the top brands in nearly every segment of healthcare.  Our core belief is that people buy emotionally and justify their buying decisions intellectually.  And this is where we excel – creating emotional connections between brands and consumers which drive action.

From our work with not-for-profits we know that driving awareness and creating an emotional connection with your cause are key to the continued growth of your organization.  At Acclaro we have some incredibly talented people to help you take both activities to the next level.

Our contribution varies based on the not-for-profit and the specific needs they have but is typically based on a monthly “bank” of creative service hours for an initial period of 12 months.

The first month we will use our time together to:

  • -Better understand your organization
  • -Identify any gaps that need to be addressed (ie. messaging, logo, website, etc)
  • -Present a plan for the next 11 months on how best to achieve your goals

In ordered to be considered, not-for-profits must meet the following criteria:

If you would like more information or to submit your not-for-profit for consideration please complete the form below and someone will return your inquiry within 48 hours.

But one of the biggest questions is how to allocate our money, which is (for most of us) a limited resource. Read more.

How much do we know about why we buy? What truly influences our decisions in today’s message-cluttered world? An eye-grabbing advertisement, a catchy slogan, an infectious jingle? Or do our buying decisions take place below the surface, so deep within our subconscious minds, we’re barely aware of them? Read more.

Since Plato, philosophers have described the decision-making process as either rational or emotional: we carefully deliberate, or we “blink” and go with our gut. But as scientists break open the mind’s black box with the latest tools of neuroscience, they’re discovering that this is not how the mind works. Our best decisions are a finely tuned blend of both feeling and reason—and the precise mix depends on the situation. When buying a house, for example, it’s best to let our unconscious mull over the many variables. But when we’re picking a stock, intuition often leads us astray.
