Vision

 

The Market we operate in

Kinship is all about the affinity between people – the connection, relationship and trust that two or more people share. KINSHIP is a social business consultancy that believes every organisation has the potential to become a true social business. That is a business that empowers its people to achieve and innovate through collaboration and engagement – where all employees are Contributors and where social-enabled processes enhance the employee and client experience.

Working with KINSHIP is a supportive experience

Our vision is to lead our clients on the social business journey to help them recognise and then realise the business benefits associated with social business. That’s why we offer a transparent and supportive environment that helps clients retain control and visibility of all initiatives. Our aim is to leave our clients with repeatable frameworks which they can apply using their own talent and knowledge. Our proprietary frameworks help us create a roadmap for your social initiatives, while our extensive project management capability ensures we deliver projects in a methodical, effective manner. What’s more, we partner with industry-leading technology and intelligence organisations in order to offer clients the most fit-for-purpose platforms to enable social service delivery. KINSHIPs social business strategies deliver real, tangible business results in line with the organisation’s strategic business goals, including:

  • Reduced organisational operational costs;
  • Superior sales conversion and increased sales growth;
  • Better market insights, shared throughout the entire organisation;
  • Improved employee satisfaction, productivity, and contribution;

Business Description

KINSHIP is a specialist consultancy that guides organisations in the adoption and use of social and digital tools to strengthen relationships with their customers and potential customers, employees and potential employees, and other stakeholders.  Kinship empowers its clients to effectively, predictably and closely engage with each audience, no matter how large and layered their organisation. KINSHIP services small and large clients including Tier 1 global clients. We provide end-to-end social and digital solutions that facilitate business transformation and business process improvement that cuts across the social value chain. KINSHIP offers a variety of smart services, frameworks and processes that help our clients take control, succeed and lead in the world of Social. In particular we follow a fact-based assessment approach to social media strategy development. This means that we do not advocate following the same path as the majority of businesses in using social media “because it is there”. We use facts about audience, services, products, brands, organisational culture, employee readiness and market opportunities to tailor a specific approach to investment in social which aligns with business strategy. KINSHIP has successfully developed global partnerships with some of the best social technology companies in the industry. This allows us to understand how to bring innovative yet practical solutions to service our clients, while at the same time we remain independent and product agnostic. KINSHIP is also one of the only companies in the industry that has a dedicated Social Media Command Centre. Despite the millions conversations happening online right now, KINSHIP gives its clients the ability to listen to anything that is being said about their business and their competitors’ businesses. This 24/7 Command Centre ensures that nothing relevant will slip through unnoticed and any comment, both positive and negative is intelligently analysed and actioned.
