WAITT CAUSE MARKETING
W.A.I.T.T. (We’re All In This Together) – Our one of a kind cause marketing company helps businesses grow through a process of mindful and systematic giving. Each Member Business commits to donating a small percentage of their daily, weekly or monthly gross revenue to a number of local charities, non-profits and other community-based organizations.
After choosing organizations to support, each member business receives a customized “Giving Calendar” indicating which organizations will be receiving donations, and on which day. Our proprietary system is a unique and efficient way for businesses to give back to their communities.
We believe that every company has the capacity to give, and we’re here to help put together a giving plan that aligns with the goals and values of your business. We provide a simple and flexible model to integrate giving back into the core of your business. WAITT can help to maximize the impact of your support by acting as a conduit for your giving, ensuring that 100% of your contributions make it to their intended destination. This direct giving puts your donation into the hands of the people who can ensure it provides maximum impact.
We envision a world where everyone business helps support the charities, non-profits and other community-based organizations. We believe that everyone should be able to give to the causes that they believe in, to help make the world a better place. It doesn’t have to be just up to those who have time, or money, or both. It’s for everyone.
The current strategies for marketing a business are ineffective and outdated. Not to mention expensive, with difficult to measure returns. Which is why we’ve changed the formula slightly, where instead wasting money on advertising, businesses donate a small percentage of their revenue to local charities.
Consumer preferences have changed dramatically and the majority of consumers expect companies to lead with purpose. It won’t be long before people flock to the businesses that give back, instead of flocking to the businesses spending the most to end up on social feeds, search results and TV screens.
Commerce should be driven by doing good, not maximizing profits.
Our Mission is to act as a conduit for giving, empowering small businesses to give back - and connecting them with and distributing funds to the local charities, non-profits and other community-based organizations in our network.
Our vision of WAITT Cause Marketing is to create a system that enables all small businesses to turn their marketing dollars into donations that go directly to supporting local causes, non-profits and community-based organizations.
Our purpose is to serve small businesses as well as local charities, non-profits, community based organizations and consumers alike, by acting as a conduit for giving thereby creating a WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone involved.
