#77: Marketing Your Mission in Uncertain Times

Times of uncertainty - like the one we are all going through right now -  are exactly when your nonprofit should double down and reach out more to your audiences and supporters. 

  • To clarify what you are doing. 
  • To connect with your various audiences. 
  • To build on the relationships you have. 
  • And, sometimes, just to share some good news during a time of adversity.

Today’s bonus podcast is about doing just that - keeping the lines of communications open during...

#73: How You Can Captivate with Content

What the heck is content anyway?

This comes up a lot when I work with my nonprofit clients as we create their marketing strategy. Often it’s because they think content is only one thing - the written prose used in their blogs, e-communications or social media posts.

This episode goes into what content is and my...

Welcome to 2020!

One way to make it more likely that your emails are seen (and opened) this year is to employ personalization. Personalization makes your emails feel more like one-to-one conversations instead of a generic, mass communication.

So what is personalization? Basically, it’s taking what you know about your audiences and leveraging that information to make your emails more personal. The simplest version of personalization is using a person’s name in the email...

The end of the year is almost here and while I’m guessing you are deep into your final fundraising push for 2019, I’d like you to take a quick little break with me to think about the coming year. 

I don’t know about you, but thinking about the new year always gets me ramped up. It’s like when I was little and getting ready for the first day of school and I had my new clothes and notebooks and pencil carrier and Fraggle Rock lunch box and - oh my gosh,...

I suspect all of us in the nonprofit sector have asked ourselves this question at one time or another: are annual reports worth it? All the time researching and writing, coming up with an engaging way to share the highlights of the past year - and that nagging feeling that no one really reads them.

I believe annual reports still have value, but you might want to consider moving from a more traditional printed publication (even if “printing” for you is creating a PDF and...
