How Savvy Marketing Translates to More Donations (Bloomerang)

 

Without great marketing, it is difficult for donors — and prospects — to feel connected to your work. Many nonprofit communicators “inherited” marketing. Often on top of the job you expected and are actually trained to do. With everything you have to juggle, priority is often placed on the “sales” and the next deadline. Marketing, however, is a critical part of fundraising. And it’s what sets up the donor for your ask. Without marketing, every call is a cold call. In this session, Beth Brodovsky will show you what savvy nonprofit marketers do to build engagement and turn it into action.

People – Difficult or Different? (Effectiveness Institute)

Why are some clients or co-workers so frustrating to work with? Or more importantly, why would anyone think of YOU as a difficult person? For example, isn’t it irritating when the person across the desk or on the phone can’t seem to ever make a decision… or makes a snap decision only to change it a day later? In this interactive and engaging Webinar, you will discover why “different” does not have to mean “difficult.” Then you will learn the magic of making slight adjustments in your awareness and behavior that will have a significant impact on your ability to “click” with customers and co-workers.  You will laugh as you identify your behavior style, as well as those with whom you work. While you laugh, you will also learn that people are different and that “intent” doesn’t always equal “impact.” In short, you will realize how to make work… less work!

Understanding Soft Risk in Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

We all worry about the hard risks that can have an impact on our volunteers and the work they do, but too often we don’t think about the soft risk. Soft risks are the attitudes, beliefs and actions that expose our organizations to risks. Those risks may include the actions of staff – both paid and volunteer, interactions on social media, lack of training for leaders and volunteers – leading to risky behavior, and how failing to screen for characteristics or “fit” can open volunteers and the organization up to risk. This webinar is designed to help attendees identify soft risks in their organization and give them the tools to make changes to processes and culture to minimize and address these risks.

How to design a library that makes kids want to read (TED Talk) https://bit.ly/2rCaYRM : When Michael Bierut was tapped to design a logo for public school libraries, he had no idea that he was embarking on a years-long passion project. In this often hilarious talk, he recalls his obsessive quest to bring energy, learning, art and graphics into these magical spaces where school librarians can inspire new generations of readers and thinkers.

The critical role librarians play in the opioid crisis (TED Talk) https://bit.ly/2sLR3ij : Public libraries have always been about more than just books — and their mission of community support has taken on new urgency during the current opioid epidemic. After witnessing overdoses at her library in Philadelphia, Chera Kowalski learned how to administer naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of narcotics, and she’s put it to use to save patrons’ lives. In this personal talk, she shares the day-to-day reality of life on the frontline of the opioid crisis and advocates for each of us to find new ways to keep our communities safe and healthy.

Onboard or Overboard! Increasing Employee Retention and Productivity (Training Magazine Network)

 

Employees are going overboard, leaving companies at a faster pace than ever before. You work so hard to recruit the right talent and yet 1/3 of employees quit their jobs in just the first six months! One major factor in this is lack of great onboarding.  Companies fail to realize the need to reinforce the “buying decision” – yes, onboarding is a key time for new associates to determine if they made the right choice or not.

Graphs, Charts, and Data Visualization – All Three in Your Next PowerPoint Presentation (Training Magazine Network)

Data visualization takes things further, to convey complex concepts in an elegant and relatable way. In this webinar we explain how to use and create PowerPoint graphs and charts effectively. We show the common mistakes people make and how to avoid them. Then teach you how to create live and non-live graphs, charts, and other data visualizations that will help engage your audience and get your message across.

Controlled Digital Lending by Libraries (District Dispatch)

 

Controlled digital lending (CDL) is the term for any library project that digitizes print materials and makes them available in a manner consistent with traditional lending principles. CDL requires the use of digital rights management to ensure a consistent owned-to-loaned ratio, so that a library cannot circulate more than the number of copies it owns, and only authorized users have access to these digitized works. Libraries perceive copyright as a roadblock to this vision, and this session seeks to demonstrate why copyright can be a library’s ally instead.

What is Our Money Story? And How Do We Tell It? (Bloomerang)

 

This training will show you how to reduce “talking about money” discomfort and show you how to powerfully include your money story in your fundraising communication. It’s much easier to talk about your amazing work. But that is only one component of successful fundraising communication. Letting your supporters know the costs of keeping water clean, mentoring children, changing laws, or helping veterans is equally important. Sharing costs alone is dry and uninspiring but when your money story is combined with a story about one person –  people listen. And often, they give more and stay giving longer.
