Targeted Industry Study with Caller ID Webpages

We use the following formula to help you determine which targeted industries you can most likely attract to your community:

Step 1: Initial screening criteria (4 digit NAICS level)
  • Three or establishments in the region
  • Region industry employment greater than 200 (smaller number in small regions)
  • Industry employment increased in the last 5 yrs
  • Location Quotient exceeds 1.00
  • Shift share regional competitiveness (last 5 yrs) positive
  • Base sector firms

Step 2:  Value Chain
  • Select the top industries from Step 1 with the most in-region purchases within a one-hour drive time region

Step 3:  Ranking Industries
  • US industry employment growth
  • Average production wages
  • Income multipliers

Once we work with you to determine what your targeted industry sectors should be, we then go a step further than any other consulting firm. Not only do we deliver the study to you in a file, we write content for your website with all the data possible to show why your area is attractive to those type companies.

Strategic Planning

Most clients tell us their favorite part of the process is the rapid fire, sticky note session we do to get everyone’s ideas up on a wall for brainstorming and research! While most consultants deliver a boring strategic plan that sits on a shelf, we deliver an action plan with specific examples from news articles concerning other communities who have taken a similar action showing that if you take this action you will likely achieve this result motivating the entire community to start taking action!

Workforce Advantage Analysis
Workforce Advantage Analysis

Are you tired of only hearing bad things about your workforce? Let us analyze the strengths of your workforce. And once we have done that, let us build you content to add to your website which outlines all the good parts of your workforce. If we find negative issues along the way, we will alert you to them, but we won’t put them in a report for your competitors to read and use against you. Additionally, static workforce reports have a quick shelf life, to address this we update our product every year, so you never have to worry about your workforce analysis getting old and stale.

Organizational Development
Organizational Development / Fundraising
Organizational Development / Fundraising Example of one step from one of our recent strategies. We believe in identifying specific costs to take specific actions so the community can see if we spend this, we likely get that.

Many community leaders have asked us to either help them refocus an organization to take it to a higher level, develop a new organization from scratch, or raise money for an organization. No matter which of these 3 things we are helping them do, we believe being successful with them all revolves around one thing: leveraging or creating a set of goals the community as a whole has “buy in” to accomplish. Once we understand the goals the community wants to accomplish, we then detail multiple strategies to accomplish those goals with projected costs for each option and projected return on investment for each strategy. This way we aren’t just telling an organization or community what to do, we are supplying them multiple options to choose from of best practices, so they build the plan with which they are most comfortable. Once the strategy is built, we can help you raise the money to fund each action item because there will be “buy in” from the community at large.

LOIS Buildings/Sites
Online Advertising to People After they Leave Your Website & Geofence Marketing

As site selectors, nothing frustrates us more than trying to navigate a buildings and sites database that is cumbersome to use, slow, or doesn’t work easily on an ipad or iphone. When we saw the LOIS update recently we reached out to them and asked if we could endorse LOIS as the best buildings/sites database on the market. It works just as well on our ipad as it does on a computer, meets all our needs, and is fast. Simply put, it’s the best buildings and sites database we have found.

Why is Next Move Group So Driven

To Help Small to Mid-Sized Communities and Organizations Create Economic Growth?

Our founder's childhood was negatively affected in such a community when a Fortune 100 company closed a 500-job plant in his hometown to move offshore when he was 9-years old. This closure cost our founder's father his job as well as many other members of his family. These painful memories have left him determined to create economic growth for small and mid-sized communities
