2011 Pre-Conference Workshops

High Impact Digital Marketing for Thon Fundraisers
Tuesday, March 1 from 9 am to 2 pm

Tapping into email, social media, and mobile communication to increase event participation and fundraising

More and more thon fundraisers are seeing the three channels of email, social media and mobile converge (e.g. participants read email and access social networks through their phones.) Digital marketing pioneer Donna Wilkins will share specific messaging, timing and integration techniques that can multiply the impact of your email, social media, and mobile communications. You’ll leave with practical knowledge, take home examples, sample marketing calendars, and a valuable peer network.

Workshop leader Donna Wilkins, president of Charity Dynamics, is a master at teaching people who are not “techies” to understand digital tools and leverage them to improve their organization’s fundraising performance.
