Special Series: "The Nonprofit Marketing Guide" Book Club on Magic Keys Radio

We did a special four-part series on Kivi's book.

Friday, September 17, 2010
Part I: Getting Ready to Do It Right (go to the show)

We talked about what nonprofit marketing is, what it means to be good at nonprofit marketing today, and the importance of building market research (or listening) into your daily routine.

Friday, October 15, 2010
Part II: Writing a Quick-and-Dirty Marketing Plan for a Specific Program (go to the show)

We talked about how nonprofits need to stop thinking in generic terms like the general public, outreach, and education, and start targeting their marketing by asking three simple questions: Who Do You Want to Reach? What Do You Want to Say? and How and Where are You Going to Say It?

Friday, November 19, 2010
Part III: Building a Community of Supporters Around You (go to the show)

We talked about how nonprofit communicators are turning into nonprofit community builders and look at some of ways nonprofits are building community by making their communications more frequent and personal, by positioning themselves as a trusted source, and by empowering their fans to build the community too.

Friday, December 17, 2010 (1:00 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern / 10:00 – 10:30 a.m. Pacific)
Part IV: Doing It Yourself without Doing Yourself In (go to the show)

We talked about ways that you can not only survive as a nonprofit marketing department of one, but thrive. We shared our favorite ways for do-it-yourself marketers to manage their time, talent, and treasure.
