Company Description

Next Step is a behavioral design and digital marketing agency that looks to the latest research in Behavioral Science - the study of how people really make decisions - to create sites and marketing strategies that help companies connect with and motivate their users.

We’re fascinated by human behavior. Curiosity drives every interaction, from initial meetings to sparking a connection with customers. We use science to drive behavior in a positive and responsible way. With every project, we hold ourselves accountable for the welfare of our clients, our team, and society at large. 

We get a thrill out of putting powerful tools to good use. That’s why we seek mission-driven companies, ones that are creating a meaningful and measurable impact on the world, from making communities around the world safer with real-time alerts of illegal gunfire to education programs that lift students out of poverty and onto a solid career path.

At every stage of the project, we use best practices to deliver better, more timely results.
