Session information:

When it comes to running a Not for Profit there is enough to worry about in terms of offering a good service, staffing and compliance, let alone effectively marketing your organisation and successfully transitioning to a digital world. 

Whilst many not-for-profits are increasingly realising the benefits of digital transformation, as they use technology to work more effectively and grow their impact, there is still plenty of work to be done.

If you’re currently running or involved with a not for profit organisation or charity and need to modernise your brand, improve your website, improve your customer service, automate administrative tasks, digitise forms or more, this session is for you! 

Come along and hear from Yvette Adams of The Creative Collective (see bio below), whose full service marketing agency specialise in assisting not for profit organisations across the country, and who will share multiple real life case studies, with some of their clients there in person to ask questions and network with – a valuable networking opportunity to connect with like-minded people in the industry!

Come along and learn:

  • The Not For Profit Guilt Trap – why NFPs struggle to spend on marketing (spend on people not marketing)
  • How times have changed – why you have to have online visibility to survive in the modern world
  • Customer centric marketing – what is it and how do you get good at it for better outcomes
  • Marketing assets you have which you may not realise are valuable and which you could be activated 
  • Getting your website right – Nonprofits succeed or fail on the strength of their ability to communicate their message and build an audience. Creating a non-profit website plays a key role in helping your organisation achieve both of those goals.
  • Spending your marketing time and dollars wisely – how to make better use of your social media and/or digital marketing activities
  • How NFPs & charities can qualify for fundraising on Facebook in Australia – all the steps you need to follow to get started
  • Cheap or free tools and resources available to not-for-profits
  • How to introduce Messenger as a new customer care channel for your organisation
