About This Course

Under pressure to increase membership, expand program value, attract media, entice donors, and develop volunteers, all while keeping an eye on the bottom line?

In the face of stiff competition, more worthwhile causes, more regulations, more watchdog agencies, and fewer funding opportunities, you need to work smarter—not longer.

This course will show you how to use powerful marketing techniques to compete more effectively for customers, donors, members, and volunteers. You'll also learn how to persuade the media to communicate your organization's message and further its ideals and goals.

Instructor Linda Kissam draws on her extensive nonprofit experience to share effective, practical, and easy-to-implement strategies that you can put to immediate use. Before you know it, you'll be ready to improve your market share by learning to evaluate and implement effective promotions, advertising campaigns, and communication techniques.

If your organization relies on a diverse mix of fees, events, and/or contributions for support, you're sure to find this information-packed course indispensible.

Review

Thanks for the great class. You will be happy to know that I have already started applying information from this class to our organization. The information about putting together a brochure was very timely for me. We also are setting goals and reviewing our positioning. I learned a lot and printed the material for future use.
