WHAT WE DO
CREATE, ARTICULATE, ACTIVATE
We connect the unconnected.
721 is a communications, marketing, and community engagement company. We are strategists and problem solvers who help clients large and small, with a proven track record of success. Our clients fondly refer to us as their go-to 'unstickers' for complicated community engagement projects, crisis management, and communications management for construction projects and developers.
If you need to reach and engage with a specific group of people, a designated community, or a unique target audience in Hawaii, we provide solutions and perform day-to-day implementation with you and for you via custom websites and landing pages, email broadcasts, social media platforms, and community events.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to strengthen and unite communities, using Hawaiian values and Kupuna 'Ike as our foundation.
“Thank you to 721, our marketing and communications firm. Without you, this wouldn’t have been possible.”
-Tracy Lawson, President & Founder of Lawson & Associates, Inc.
We work with a variety of clients, but are often brought in to work on projects that combine community engagement with technical issues related to zoning, development and construction. We also work with non-profits and educational institutions for special projects.
We have created a unique Community Management System (CMS) that integrates multiple communications platforms (social media, direct email, website and in-person meetings or community outreach events) to best inform your specific target audiences, gather and disseminate information, and facilitate timely, strategic communications. This proprietary system also provides historical documentation, analytics, and contact management.
