    Our first session is on November 6th, so be sure to reserve your spot today!

    The numbers are staggering: 39% of people have more than 100 unread emails in their inbox, with 20% saying they have over 1,000, 98% of text messages get opened, most in just a few minutes, and yet 45% of people reply to branded text message blasts

  • 2020 Collaborative: Marketing Funnels and Donor Conversion in a Time of Crisis

    We have the honor of participating in Classy’s 2020 Collaborative, presenting on Marketing Funnels and Donor Conversion in a Time of Crisis. Here is a short description of our time together: How do you get your message out, ensure it lands as intended, and yields the desired result? Some studies suggest that an average adult attention span is 10-15 minutes with short term as low as 8 seconds. The average consumer sees about 5,000 ads a day. Under normal circumstances, building a sustainable funnel of donors is hard enough, but these are incredibly challenging times. We must look for every opportunity to create clarity and confidently inspire others to join our mission. In this session, we will look at strategies, tools, and tactics that we can use today to plan, build, and launch a marketing funnel that yields results.

  • Finding your Voice of Customer (VOC)

    Remember the popular children’s book, Where’s Waldo? In the book, readers are given a call to action: To find the distinctively dressed Waldo-wearing a striped shirt, red hat, and spectacles- on each page of the book. While seek-and-find-books are a popular concept in children’s literature, Waldo really took it to the next level. It was genuinely difficult to find Waldo! Many times reading this book to my kids, I would be tempted to move on without finding the target. But alas, the small people had something to say about that!

  • The Market and Product Sweet Spot

    When a baseball player connects with the ball in the perfect location on the bat, the momentum of the bat and the ball come together to get the perfect hit. That’s what is called finding the sweet spot. Wouldn’t it be great if every hit connected perfectly with the sweet spot?
