As someone with social anxiety, I find it much easier to speak with you through the safety of my screen than to have an actual conversation with you.

 

I guess it’s a good thing I don’t run a nonprofit, right?

 

Getting up close and personal with potential supporters is a necessity for any nonprofit professional; and, as we’ve already mentioned, building relationships is key to eliciting long-term support and engagement.

How to Write Effective Copy

If your job is to write, you are a writer. This may seem obvious at first, but it is with alarming frequency that I meet people who, although they make their living writing and publishing content, do not view themselves as a writer. While there’s nothing wrong with this, and writing certainly isn’t everyone’s strong suit, framing your copy around how to write effectively will make a massive difference in the efficacy of your communications.

Upcoming Event? Amplify Your Efforts Through Mobile!

At one point in time, the word “mobile” referred to a device that you used for only phone calls and text messages. A recent study by Pew Research Center found that 58% of American adults own a smart phone. With the use of smart phones becoming more prevalent, the word “mobile” has evolved into so much more. Think about all of the things you use your mobile phone for; checking emails, sending and receiving calls and texts, posting to social networks, sharing videos with friends, etc. Although people are now using their mobile phones to communicate through these additional channels, open rates for text messages still remain the highest. With 97% of people opening text messages, it is imperative to use this channel to amplify all of your other communication efforts.
