The world of not-for-profit (NFP) is tough enough but Taurus gets a kick out of helping this special sector achieve cut through and build brand.
We have brought our clarity to award winning campaigns with leading National brands such as Clean Up Australia and the Bible Society with Jesusallaboutlife.
Faced with escalating demands on all fronts and limited resources, brand growth can easily get pushed down the agenda of your NFP organisation. At the same time, most would agree that the ability to reach your market (donors, supporters, influencers, and ambassadors) has never been more vital. We understand you are time constrained and busy juggling a variety of responsibilities. Our NFP service helps you focus and ‘kick-start’ your efforts into action. So where do you start? Taurus works directly with you to answer the question ‘Where do we start?’.
For some NFP executives this means putting an organisational strategy or marketing plan in place, for others it is re-defining the logo and NFP identity. It may be developing that suite of case studies and testimonials you’ve had on the ‘to do’ list for a while, creating direct marketing programs, or running a messaging and positioning session to get your team singing off the same song sheet. Our senior consultants work with you from scratch, guiding you through the most practical cost and time effective process, whatever your budget, to make your marketing happen.

Feedback from our Clients
Osteoporosis Australia, CEO, Judy Stenmark"We initially retained Taurus to manage press relations and secure Joan Collins as guest of honour for our annual fundraiser the ‘Bone Ball’. As a Not For Profit (NFP) organisation, value for money and results are of utmost importance to us as we have to justify every cent we spend, so we really appreciated the extra effort Taurus delivered. We find Taurus Marketing innovative, efficient and they possess an appropriate sense of urgency to progress projects. The team are always on hand and respond immediately and effectively to our requests. The work they produce is of a consistently high standard and Taurus is always willing to go beyond the call of duty to get the job done. Above all Taurus is friendly and approachable which makes working with them an easy, productive and enjoyable experience."
ConnXion, CEO, David Colvin“It makes sound business sense for a company of our size and needs to work with an agency that offers a broad range of marketing, PR and creative services. I use Taurus as my marketing department.”
Bible Society CEO, Daniel Willis“Both Taurus’ team and our team here at Bible Society worked hand in glove, daily, to bring about the overall objectives. It’s been a very good relationship. We rolled out a daily program on Twitter to engage people and we picked up a Facebook fan following, and again we looked at feeding that daily with comments and information so that people could respond to the campaign. As a result of that, today we’ve got something like 25,000 regular users on that Facebook page and they constantly engage with the ongoing aspects of Jesus – All About Life.”
Playoust Churcher, Managing Director, Brett Churcher“The Taurus messaging and positioning workshop captured our thoughts and ideas into a formal document that could be drawn upon when developing our marketing strategies in both the short-term and long-term – it hit the nail on the head perfectly.”
GiggedIn, Edwin Onggo“The Taurus team were great to work with. We ended up getting a great response from a number of the mastheads and I was very happy to have them work on our project.”
Small Business & Regional Development, Executive Director, Enterprise, Michael Cullen"Your involvement as a speaker this year has greatly contributed to this success of the program and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your time and effort in putting together your presentation. We look forward to working with you again in the future."
Datacom, Former CEO RIP, Michael Browne"To measure results we set specific KPIs around PR, signing stories and case studies. Taurus is performing exceptionally well against every benchmark."
Doughlish“I didn’t have any reference point in what to expect – hesitant to go ahead because we felt we could it ourselves or at least try and reach out different media outlet and try and get info and product across. But Having said that we’re really happy we went with Taurus, because of what’s come out of it such high-quality articles, very well written and big media publications we are super happy with it is super aligned with our target market. And we definitely wouldn’t have been able to get that kind of quality ourselves.”
Charmaine Terry“Having worked with Sharon on the AmCham Women in Management Committee I respect and admire her ability to "think outside the box" to produce creative solutions. Sharon is an ideal team member, exhibiting intelligence and efficiency to identify new opportunities from emerging market trends and work effectively with peers to resolve business issues promptly. Her client commitment and focus means she successfully produces results that are aligned to their business strategies. As a working mother she is empathetic to women's needs. Sharon is a delight to work with and has my highest recommendation, respect and regard.”
Former Prosperity Advisers, Anne Adams“Taurus has been a great asset for us to be able to secure media coverage and build connection with industry media in a meaningful way. I have always found the team to be responsive, strategic and to offer advice and ideas when needed. The Taurus team have always been there to assist when we needed it and are supportive during tight deadlines and equally understanding of our internal processes. When we needed encouragement, ideas or prodding to deliver, they were there for us. The relationship has evolved over time to be close and personalised which is rewarding both professionally and personally. Our practice has benefited from the volume and breadth of media exposure of the right sort by working the experienced team at Taurus for over 4 years.”
