Marketing and Association Consulting Firm





The Baldwin Network is a marketing and association consulting firm that helps associations and law firms grow and diversify.

Marketing a service vs. marketing a product is a completely different process and the Baldwin Network has specific experience in that area. Marketing a service is essentially boiled down to marketing YOU – which can be awkward and uncomfortable.  It doesn’t get easier writing about yourself or finding ways to have clients want to hire you for your expertise.  But it does become more natural with practice, coaching and figuring out your own personal marketing style.  

I can help you become a thought-leader, solidify current client relationships, reach new clientele and raise your profile through careful communication, and strategic marketing.  Together we can find opportunities that fit your comfort and skill level.  I can help you tell your unique story, conveying your distinctive expertise and help you create meaningful client relationships.

I can assist you in market development, marketing research, networking, and business development coaching, public/client relations plans, and branding – all to the end result of conveying clearly your unique position in the market.

Why outsource marketing and association management services?

To put it in a single thought or phrase – you’re too busy to market yourself

I can supplement your own marketing and association efforts to boost your outreach and public/client relations. I have an extensive network of marketing and branding specialists to help you build stronger relationships with your current clients and further your market to find more clients.  I will use my own experience and my extensive network within the legal vertical to help you further market your services.

While I can’t make you a good lawyer or expert or a well-run association, I can help you polish up your brand, create unique and authentic campaigns and kick your butt to market yourself better.

My Network can help you with:

  • Building your Association;
  • Writing and overseeing a business development plan;
  • Branding;
  • Public Relations, including identifying media and speaking opportunities;
  • Writing and implementing a marketing plan
  • Designing websites & printed marketing pieces;

About Us - Kristin Baldwin, the Baldwin Network

My marketing career was launched with my first job out of graduate school. I sold prisons.  More truthfully – I was part of a team that successfully convinced small communities around the state of California to let my employer, the Department of Corrections build a prison in their town. If I can successfully market a prison, I can market your services.  

When I was a kid – I wanted to be three things: An astronaut, a marriage counselor or a matchmaker. I stink at math so astronaut was out.  I don’t have the patience to sit through marital conflicts so marriage counselor was also out.  The job market has dried up for matchmaking since the advent of the internet so I might as well put those matchmaking skills to work for you and help you expand your own network.  I like looking at unique ways of getting you into the ecosphere of potential and current clients and finding connections and common interests among like-minded people.  (see..back to the whole matchmaking theme) More importantly, I have extensive contacts in the community and I am not afraid to use them.

Here is some further information if you really want the boring details.
