Behavior Change

Big goals don't scare us, either.

Out to make the world measurably better.

Few agencies can match the depth or breadth of KW2’s public interest and behavior change expertise. Impaired driving, obesity, tobacco use, buckling up, HIV and Hep C, prenatal care, heroin addiction, elder abuse, organ donation, sexual violence. We’ve launched national efforts and created more than 100 successful campaigns for the state of Wisconsin alone. 

Activating behavior change isn’t like selling shoes or services. Our marketing tools may look the same, but social change initiatives have their own unique demands. Whether our team is making complex issues relatable or helping organizations leverage an ecosystem of action and influence that extends their reach and makes real progress possible, one thing’s for sure.

Making a difference isn’t just a business model to us. It’s who we are.

How we do it.

There are no cookie cutter solutions for shifting a culture, a community or a personal set of values or behaviors. But after 30 years spent fostering awareness, public education and change in Wisconsin and beyond, we know 5 essential social marketing maxims to be true.

We know this work.

KW2 is sensitive to the special responsibilities that come from working with public and donated monies. We understand the unique rhythms of state budgets and boards. And we’re accustomed to dealing with multi-layered approvals, public scrutiny, grant deadlines and RFPs.

We earn the public’s trust three ways: by operating transparently, by steadily building consensus, and by delivering well-crafted communications backed by sound strategy and research.
