Is your organization a no-nonsense nonprofit? Maybe! If:
You don’t chase after every passing fad, or fall victim to Bright Shiny Object Syndrome. At the same time, you don’t think “the way we’ve always done it” is always the best way.
You take your mission seriously and your opinions lightly.
You schedule time to consider new ideas and learn new things into your work week. (You know that putting it on the calendar is the only way to make it happen.)
You don’t care about “best practices”: you want to know what will work for your organization.
You know the difference between what’s technical and what’s practical.
You know that things take time. You’re willing to be patient. Eventually, though, you want to see the results.
You know that results and Return On Investment are two different things, and you care more about results.
You know that free is not always the best price, and you’re willing to invest money as well as time to change your organization for the better.
Communication for the No-Nonsense Nonprofit
I love working with a no-nonsense nonprofit to improve the way you communicate with donors, volunteers, clients, and any other audience you’re trying to reach…and here’s why. By the time you hire me as a communications consultant, you know the value you’re going to get out of the consultation.
- We’ve asked about the purpose of your communications. (Are you trying to renew more donors, attract new ones, advocate effectively on an issue, or even galvanize people who care about that issue to form a movement?)
- We’ve determined how well you know the audiences you are trying to reach–and what else you’d have to know to send them messages they will read, view, listen to, and respond to.
- We’ve committed to creating a communications strategy that suits your audiences and fits within the time and money your organization can dedicate to the task.
It’s exciting when an organization says, “We’re going to do better.” It’s even more exciting when I can provide a step-by-step outline of what it will take to get your nonprofit to the point that people are actually looking forward to hearing from you and upset if they miss a message!
If you are a no-nonsense nonprofit, we should talk about how you can use the services I offer to get tangible results for your organization. I will give you at least one suggestion you can put into practice right away during our first conversation. Contact me and let’s set a time to talk.
