The Intrigue Agency is on a Mission…

A mission to “Get People Interested in What YOU care about.”

The Intrigue Agency is a strategic communications agency that teaches organizations and individuals to be more intriguing. Our services include;

  • Keynote Presentations
  • Corporate Training
  • Products and Systems
  • Strategic Communication Consultation
  • Production of High Level Marketing Materials

Definition of Intrigue = Arousing interest or curiosity

Why is this important?

Our ideas, organizations, products, services and causes do NOT sell themselves.

We can have something of value to offer … but if we can’t distill that into a crisp, compelling description of WHY it’s worth buying into … it will never succeed at the level at which it deserves.

The intrigue Agency helps clients do two things;

Capture Interest: If you don’t “have ‘em at hello,” you won’t have ‘em at all.

Organizations and individuals need to be able to quickly convince people we’re worth their valuable time and mind. If our introduction stinks, they move on … and our offering may never see the light of day or get the buy-in it deserves. We need to capture interested in the first 60 seconds.

Keep Interest: People today are suffering from “Info-Besity.”

Organizations and individuals need to offer collateral that keeps people interested. Our audiences are usually BBB; Busy, Bored and Been there-heard-that, our communication needs to be CCC; Clear, Compelling and Creative, otherwise people won’t stick around.

Want good news? We’re really good at teaching people how to capture and keep interest.

The Intrigue Agency has developed a step-by-step system that shows you how to distill your priority project into a clear and compelling  “UVP” – Unique Value Proposition – that captures and keeps the interest of your target decision-makers, audiences, readers and viewers.

So next time you’re pitching a client, presenting a proposal, chairing a meeting, creating marketing materials or working on a passion project … ask yourself, Is this Intriguing…
