What makes us go

Our Fuel


For more than three decades, BKV has practiced and perfected our understanding of direct marketing in categories from hospitality to healthcare, and nearly everything in between. It’s taught us this: Direct marketing is essential to your marketing strategy. And the results prove it. Behind every decision we make at BKV is a commitment to no-nonsense, hard-numbers accountability. But we’re every bit as committed to the art of direct communication. It means understanding, respecting and nurturing the relationship between client and customer. It’s the smart direct marketing communication that turns a one-time sale into a long-term-customer-slash-full-fledged-brand-evangelist. And it’s the reason direct remains the driving force behind both our work, and our ethos. You’ll see it in your results. And in your ROI.

Our office is chockablock with pixelsmiths, code crafters, social media mavens and SEO savants just waiting to propel your brand forward – no matter what media it calls for. See for yourself.

At BKV, we harbor particular passion for our nonprofit clients. Our commitment to working with charities, research foundations, and humanitarian organizations began in 1981, and has yielded breakthrough ideas – from iconic DRTV spots in the early ‘80s, to some of the first nonprofit digital campaigns in the late ‘90s.

These days, we’re pioneering the application of advanced data analytics to better target donors in both media and creative executions. Our clients include some of the most respected nonprofits in the world – all relying on BKV to harness the power of their brand to maximize their fundraising results. Our nonprofit experience covers virtually every type of acquisition and retention challenge including donor acquisition, planned giving, special appeals, monthly giving/sustainer programs, renewals, retention and CRM, and more.

See examples of the rebranding work we’ve done for March of Dimes' annual March for Babies, and how we’ve used analytics to mine donor data for the American Red Cross.
