Making People Cry Isn't a Good Nonprofit Mobile Strategy
Great post from Joe Waters on levels of emotion. I write a lot about the important role emotion plays in cause marketing. If you don't lead with emotion, you're toast. I also talk a lot about mobile technology, which will be a key driver of cause marketing in the years ahead. But here's the rub: Emotion and smart phones may not be a good mix. That's my conclusion after reading a post by Mediapost's Steve Smith on research by A .K. Pradeep, founder and CEO of Nielsen NeuroFocus, on the connection between brainwave analysis and ad response. http://huff.to/IcbRBP

An Actionable Marketing Plan for Nonprofits in 8 Sentences If your cause is small, marketing it can be tricky. But marketing legend Jay Conrad Levinson has some ideas for how you can create an easy-to-use marketing plan for even the thinnest budgets. From a post by Paul R. Jones of Alden Keenfs Cause Marketing blog:
- The first sentence tells your purpose in marketing. The purpose has to be expressed in ways that are SMART: Sensible, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time bound.
- The second sentence lays out the competitive advantage youfll emphasize. Even if you have multiple competitive advantages you can really only emphasize one.
- The third sentence explains who your target audience is. Even if you sell soap, your target market is not the whole world.
- The fourth sentence explains what marketing weapons youfll use. Limit the list based on stuff you can afford, you can understand and you can use properly.
Go to the full story for the last four sentences.
