We had the good fortune of connecting with Bob Bryant and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bob, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Perseverance and determination to keep our name circulating among our base and in turn that base has also helped us to build the MissionK9 brand.
In the nonprofit world you have to be charismatic, unique, and marketable. We’ve been able to achieve all these things and they have enabled us to ramp up our work and over all growth.
The working dogs we serve are the main reason for success. Dog lovers everywhere can’t get enough of these heroes and we are proud to be able to support their health and retirement after their service ends.
What should our readers know about your business?
I provide fundraising services for select nonprofits in verticals that can achieve high growth with the right messaging and tools. Skills I’ve developed enable me to effectively raise over $700K per year strictly from individuals on Facebook for Mission K9 Rescue alone.
This is a learned skill. Without knowledge of the vertical you are working in, most have little success. Knowing how to message; what to say and how to say it, and how to ask are critical skills that most organizations have little knowledge of. I have a very unique method of speaking and writing that brings in more donations and donations of higher value. Knowing how to setup the advertising and run a campaign is just the start. I’ve made the difference between “so=so” and stellar results. The big ad firms have no real knowledge of nonprofit verticals.
I’ve learned how to get people who want to say “NO” to say “YES” instead. It was about a 3 year process applying the sales skillset maintained over the years and making it work in a nonprofit donation environment.
I want the world to know that Mission K9 Rescue walks the walk and that I am glad to have been a part of the organization’s ongoing success. Working dogs all over the world have been rescued, reunited, rehabilitated, repaired, and rehomed thanks to the skills I’ve been able to develop. It is a passion. My personal story is small compared to these great dogs that give their all.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
A visit to Perch (Downtown) is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon or evening. Dodger game if in season is always a hit with baseball fans.
Time spent in Malibu at Zuma Beach and up PCH to Neptunes Net makes for a great day or two!
A visit to the Getty is always in order and some of the other museums in the area as well.
Have to take the kids to Universal if they come along. Always a fun day!
So much to choose from! Add King Harbor in Redondo Beach to the list too!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
This shoutout is dedicated to Working Dogs Around The World. Their work and our countries love for them has enabled our rapid growth and success. Our success is their success! Without them, there would be no need for us and we hope that one day, EVERY working dog will have a great retirement with a warm bed, the best of veterinary care, and love from those that care for them.
