You can also check out the FREE 60-minute recorded webinar, 21 Things Nonprofit Markerters Can Stop Doing, which not only identifies the stupid things your organization may be doing, but will also:

  • Help you determine just how far your particular organization has traveled into Stupid Town
  • Share advice on how to convince others what you’re doing is ridiculous, so that you can stop doing those things and move on together happily ever after
  • What you can do instead that might actually accomplish the goal that the “biggest time suck ever” things were intended for in the first place.
