If you think people don't read, it may be time to reconsider
Think print publications are dead? Listen to Carol Meerschaert, of the Health Care Business Women's Association and you’ll reconsider. Carol lets me in on the secrets to creating a publication that is central to your organization.A long-form magazine lets you speak to your members in a very personal way, to dig deeper into a topic and to have almost an intimate conversation with your members. Integrating it into your entire organization is critic...

Fundraising is not a solo sport says Tiny Martignetti, host of Nonprofit Radio
This week I turn the tables on the master interviewer as Tony Martignetti from Nonprofit Radio gets to be a guest for a change! In over 225 episodes, Tony has had more than 500 conversations with nonprofit leaders and consultants on topics critical to the success of small to medium sized organizations.This episode is #46 for me. I launched Driving Participation the last week of May 2014 and I can't believe I am closing in on a year. But 225 episo...

What is your ask to thank ratio?

Lynne Wester talks about connecting donors wit hwhat they really care about. My favorite quote:  "If you ask me to give to your annual fund, I’m like That’s not sexy. That does not blow my skirt up.”

If you want to amplify that message, you've got to know what it is.
Your brand, your marketing, people's opinions of you certainly live in your community's hearts and minds. If you want to mirror that image, you've got to know how to connect with your people. This week I talk with Amanda Kaiser from Kaiser Insights about the kind of questions you need to be asking today to grow for tomorrow.'Audience' has this feeling of people we're talking at. 'Community' is people we're involved with.— Amanda Kaiser, Kaiser In...

The trends that showed up repeatedly over 52 conversations really surprised me.
With a weekly program, 52 episodes marks one full year of amazing discussions on engagement – as well as figuring out how to get a show like this created and published every week.I wanted use this milestone to celebrate a year of participation. Its a great point to pause and share some of the common themes that have come out of over 40 hours of talking with experts on nonprofit communications. Over this year I got to speak to amazing people from ...

Online — and especially Facebook — is a great forum for experiments because it lets your fans become ambassadors.
I've been following the genius of online engagement, John Haydon, for years. When I saw an email from him that talked about using mini social media campaigns to spark participation I had to know more — and I figured you would too. He came on the podcast this week to tell me all about it. John says “mini campaigns” give you the opportunity to test ideas in an online world that is changing weekly.“The organizations that actually advance, the ones t...

Are you hanging onto your donors?
We all have this tendency to focus on bringing in new members and donors. That cost is rarely looked at against the value of keeping somebody in your organization. Shanon Doolittle, the Donor Happiness Coach, talks about how constant vigilance on keeping your donors happy can make a massive difference for your organization. Anytime you're going to do an ask, think about how to show impact the month before and then how to be super awesome at grati...

Its #Grammy Weekend. Get a behind the scenes look at how this association keeps members involved.
The Recording Academy is a professional association that you may better know as The Grammys. The big-time music award show happening this Sunday is actually a product of a chapter-based national member association. With a huge televised production funding much of the organization's activity, the chapters have a unique opportunity to run without the primary focus being to keep the chapter alive. This week I speak with Philadelphia Chapter Executiv...

Creating a compelling story is not easy.
This week, Matt Hugg joins me to give advice on how to take an interview and create emotion. He talks about all the stages from gathering to publishing.
We know that storytelling is an important component in creating a connection, but how can you tell the right story? It seems like it would be simple, right? Find a good subject, grab a recorder and let them talk. But people are surprisingly bad at telling stories. Have you ever gotten trapped at ...
