When I tell you that my alma mater, Clark Atlanta University, has some of the most entrepreneurial, dedicated, and successful alumni words are not enough to say how the university has molded us into becoming business moguls. I mean our motto is, “Find a way or make one” and “Culture for Service”, so why would we settles for less. We are all out to get our own so that we don’t have to depend on some BOSS or employer that isn’t willing to pay us all of what we are worth. Despite the trials and tribulations that we endured in that horrid financial aid office, going to CAU was worth it all, and I would do it all over if I could because the experience and people that I met were nothing more than awesome. One of those amazing people that I met was my media sister and Clark Atlanta University Alumni, Kirby Carroll.
Miss Carroll is also one of those CAU panthers that decided that her ultimate purpose in life is to not only do what she loves, but to do what she loves within her own enterprise, so she decided to launch A.K.C. LLC to fulfill that purpose. A.K.C. LLC is an emerging media company serving the Hampton Roads, DC area and beyond. The goal of AKC staff is to create compelling, unique and marketable content for clientele. AKC staff specialize in promotional and creative video, public relations and the curation of entertainment.
The first element of the company is the creation of promotional and creative video. Clients who wish to create a video promotion go through a host of three meetings. The first determines the need of the client and goals of their campaign. The following is a brainstorm session where various solutions and ideas are presented. Finally, the last meeting serves as simply a wrap-up. Budget and marketing plan is agreed upon and the creative process begins. The second element is public relations. AKC contains a collection of writers, bloggers, radio personalities, actors and more. These individuals vary in experience and personality. The team works to find exposure opportunities through online, radio, television and live event exposure. The company believes that luck is when preparation meets opportunity. AKC clients are talented and have worked very hard for their positions. AKC works to ensure they get the luck and exposure they deserve. “The DMV area has so much talent. It is my hope to use my passion for entrepreneurship to highlight the talent of the community,”says creator Kirby Carroll.
AKC also produces content through web-series, short-films, exclusive interviews and television. In order to schedule a consolation or view their content interested parties should visit the website online at AskKirbyCarroll.com.
