YO & Associates, LLC, is a marketing consulting agency with one goal in mind: to help nonprofit organizations and associations hit their targets and achieve success. Starting in 2011 from a college dormitory, this network of talented freelancers—copywriters, graphic designers, SEO/SEM specialists, event managers, campaign strategists, and more—possesses more than 100 years of combined experience, with the project portfolios to back it up.

Our favorite words are flexibility and accountability. Sound strange? They go together! We make deadlines, set goals, test, measure, and adjust. That sense of ownership is felt by all YO & Associates team members and organizations we work with on projects as varied as membership growth, in-person and virtual event marketing strategy development, marketing operations, paid digital media buying/advertising, and new business initiatives.

We see ourselves as a forward looking group of passionate marketing professionals with the relevant experience to match.
