What’s Up in April

Here’s what’s happening at Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com this month.

Training Open to Everyone – That’s You!

April 19: Get Your Nonprofit Marketing Mobile Ready. This brand new, FREE webinar with Tonia Zampieri will explain what you should be doing to make sure your nonprofit’s website and other communications are compatible with today’s smart phones and tablets.

Registration is open for our Direct Mail for Small Nonprofits E-clinic. Tom Ahern and I will lead this online clinic and show you how to improve your direct mail appeals and raise more money, even from a small list. This e-clinic will begin May 1st and is only open to 24 small nonprofits. (This is NOT included with the All-Access Pass, but Pass Holders receive a $100 discount.)

Registration for  Total Focus Marketing Plan Workshop is also now open for this year’s workshop in Chicago. Join Nancy Schwartz and me September 19th and we will help you create a full marketing plan for your nonprofit. The first 15 people who register receive $100 off.

We will be sending our free Nonprofit Monthly Writing Prompts for May this week. If you are stuck on what to include in your newsletter or blog post, sign up now. Every month we send ideas to help end your writer’s block!
