Selling Good Works : Fundamentals of Marketing a Non-Profit Organization
Non-profit organizations are focused on helping the communities they serve. However, to effectively serve the community, there is a need to find donors, raise awareness, and find users for the organization's mission. The challenge for most non-profits is trying to achieve multiple goals with these multiple audiences. In addition, the marketing message must stand out using limited resources in a cluttered and noisy marketplace. This session addresses the unique marketing opportunities and challenges faced by charities, public service agencies, and other types of non-profit organizations including:
--Important similarities and differences between non-profit and for-profit marketing
--How non-profits should develop a marketing plan
--Getting the message out to those who need it
--Effective ways to use a small marketing budget
--Using the web and social media to communicate
--Tracking and evaluation of non-profit marketing efforts
