ENCorps Workshop: Building Buzz with Marketing

Date: December 5, 2012

Time: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m

Location: UMaine Center on Aging, 321 Camden Hall, 25 Texas Ave, Bangor

Description: Much nonprofit marketing is invested in building a broad base of supporters… consumers, referral sources, donors, partnering organizations, legislators, volunteers, and others. But far fewer have turned those supporters into promoters. Research shows that these potential “brand promoters” are a nonprofit’s best friend when it comes to “building buzz.” Not only is peer-to- peer marketing typically more effective than paid advertising, it is also far more affordable to those nonprofits with limited marketing budgets. In this session, Susan R. Kaye of Packard, Judd & Kaye, will introduce best practices for identifying and cultivating brand promoters and highlight associated marketing techniques for building buzz for your nonprofit. At Packard, Judd & Kaye, Susan combines her corporate and non-profit expertise to provide strategic planning, marketing management services, marketing plan development, market research, and training to a broad array of organizations. Clients span industries such as higher education, tourism, health care, real estate and development, nonprofits, and consulting firms.
