Modern consumers are constantly bombarded with social media posts, texts and excessive advertising. So how can your business manage to grab the spotlight? We recommend Michael Hyatt’s “Platform”. The book describes the necessity of standing on a metaphorical stage (or platform) to amplify your message over the noise of today’s crowded market. The audience only sees you when you’re on stage.
Adbongo has invested the last six years in building a stage much like the one Hyatt describes. Our sustainable platform has more ninja bells and whistles than Hyatt’s, but his image reveals the value of the services we have to offer. If you have a platform, collaborate with us. If you don’t, use ours. Adbongo promises to take you farther, faster.
Why do you need a Platform?
● The market is crowded. Face it, competition has never been greater.
● Visibility: Be seen. Without a platform, you’ll stay in the dark.
● Amplification and Connection: Be heard. Without a mic, no one can hear.
Why Adbongo’s platform?
Our platform not only benefits you; it also benefits your community and planet. We are one of only 620 for-benefit corporations (B-Corps) in the world. The new paradigm is here, and we’re a part of it.
Our joy is in helping individuals with heart transform into community superheroes. Adbongo’s platform empowers consultants, startups, existing businesses, and governments seeking change. We have built a launch pad for the traditional economic sectors by providing infrastructure, an executive team, brand, and vast blue oceans of uncontested market space for transformation into new economy.
Benefits of Adbongo’s Platform
Most incubators and accelerators who specialize in tech leave all other businesses without the resources to grow. Adbongo serves the other businesses from all sectors: non-profit, for-profit, for-benefit and government. Odds are you will be hard-pressed to find resources that actually improve your ability to sustain your venture. You might find a Chamber or a non-profit that invites you to a networking event or gives you a business plan template, but the momentum is yours to supply.
We spent six years, thousands of man hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars to get where we are. We are the only real short cut there is. All you have to do is participate in fair trade, stay in your lane (NASCAR vs. bumper cars) and collaborate with us. Sounds easy, right?
In addition to a platform, you need a team to execute it, the infrastructure to handle the business, content to talk about, a market that needs your product and much more. We provide everything for you.

The rise of the new economy.
To reflect the fact that Adbongo is a corporation working for social and environmental change, we officially became a certified “for-benefit” B corporation in November, 2011. For-benefit enterprises are a relatively new business structure that use the power of business for social and environmental change. Because we are “for-benefit” we are not trying to make a killing, and will not charge you $2000 an hour like a traditional ad agency
Adbongo is certified as a veteran-owned, minority-owned, HUB (Historically Underutilized Business) and DBE (Disadvanted Business Enterprise) company. All of these certifications give Adbongo a strong advantage over non-certified competitors when potential clients are evaluating proposals for advertising and marketing work. These certifications helped Adbongo win a contract from the City of Austin, and they will give us an edge if we decide to pursue high dollar government or corporate contracts in the future.
