Wielding Real Influence Inexpensively
Reaching AND Converting The Influencer
Marketing Generations With Video (X, Y, and Millennials)
9:50 AM - 10:30 AM

Influencer marketing focuses on tapping into the power of specific key individuals, or types of individuals, rather than marketing directly to the target market as a whole. As the hottest trend in marketing, everyone is now on the lookout for influencers. This session will present a comprehensive review of influencer marketing using video, from quick and easy ways to identify your key influencers and micro-influencers to strategies for becoming a more effective marketer by harnessing the power of your influencers in your association or foundation. You’ll also hear a series of "do's and dont's," so you can effectively avoid common and time-consuming issues that can create problems for marketers and organizations. Finally, you’ll learn how to (inexpensively) produce and distribute video.

Materials: Walk away with a strategic plan documenting the best ways to find and use influencers to get the greatest results in your organization.

The 5 Shifts that Skyrocket Participation:
A Review of 5 “Real-World”
Tactics That Get Results
10:40 AM - 11:40 AM

Does attracting (and retaining) ideal members, donors, volunteers and staff seem harder and more expensive than ever? If you’re not creating a meaningful connection you are closer than ever to getting cut out of the picture. It doesn’t matter how many people are on your list if they don’t participate in the things you need to reach your vision. Without the right focus, it’s easy to attract a database full of the wrong people who hang around without ever joining, donating or attending your programs.

Getting people involved is critical to running a thriving organization. But it takes more than the right marketing mix to make it happen. As an attendee, you’ll learn about the 5 strategic shifts it takes to drive participation and how you can build a participation-centered brand to grow inside and out, including:

  • The critical difference between participation and engagement
  • What it takes to attract (and keep) the right people
  • How to leverage your effort and build momentum

Materials: Walk away with a list of vetted tech-marketing tools/strategies that get results in nonprofit organizations.
