WHAT WE DO
We are experts at crafting strategic communications plans that clearly outline your communications objectives, audiences and key messages, as well as the strategies and tactics that will bring your plan to life. Whether it’s your annual communications strategy to support key business objectives, or an upcoming leadership transition, we can create an effective communications plan that will give your team the building blocks for success.
Employee and Culture Communications
Employee communications is all about building connections for employees — connections to leadership, organizational strategy, mission, vision, values and each other. By fostering these connections and creating a strong culture, you can increase employee satisfaction and retention. We work with clients to create a custom plan that meets your unique needs and is contextualized to fit your organizational culture.
Storytelling is at the heart of what we do — and we are committed to getting your message just right so that it resonates with your audience. We work with clients in customized capacities to create the content you need to achieve your communications objectives. Our integrated, holistic approach takes an idea and turns it into a thoughtful, beautiful end piece — whether that be written or visual.
Good writing never goes out of style. We listen, learn your world and bring your message to life. Our assignments vary and we excel at them all: thought leadership pieces, columns, articles, websites, speeches and more.
We believe in the importance of good design. From infographics to newsletters and annual reports, we tailor our creative services to fit your needs. We have the ability to create new designs, or we can work within your existing templates or brand standards.
Videos not only share your message or story but show it in action. From coordinating interviews to combing through archives, we find the heart of your story to create a beautiful video that weaves a compelling narrative.
Through stories, we define ourselves, our values and our understanding of the world. At Lilja Lifestories, we write and produce memoirs, family histories and business histories to preserve your stories for the next generation. Our process is flexible and highly customized — we can work with an existing manuscript to produce a keepsake, or fully ghostwrite and produce a book for sale. We work with authors at many different phases of the process to get you to the same end goal — publishing your legacy for future generations.
The right branding can leave a lasting impression, giving people an instant idea of who you are and what you value. Sometimes an existing brand needs to be elevated to connect with a modern audience, or to reflect changes in the organization. We can help give your brand the refresh it deserves, including logo and other visuals, and positioning language, including mission, vision and values. We listen, ask the right questions and create a unique brand that’s distinctively yours.
We pride ourselves on maintaining relationships with media contacts in the Twin Cities metro and beyond who recognize Lilja’s ability to deliver quality stories. Our strategic media relations work will bring your story to the right hands to reach the right audience.
