Looking for marketing answers? Stuck and need inspiration? Surprised at something that's worked great and want to spread the word? Please join me and (already) 400 fellow nonprofit communicators in the Getting Attention (GA) Group on LinkedIn.
Here's the deal. For years, folks have been sending me queries on nonprofit marketing dilemmas (Ask Nancy). I do respond via the GA blog or e-update when possible, but…
- I just can't respond to the volume anymore, and more importantly…
- You'd get a lot more from hearing from your peers, as well as from me. They're the ones out in the field, testing, testing testing.
So I'm shifting discussion to the Getting Attention LinkedIn Group (we'll have a Facebook group soon). Already have 400 nonprofit communicators there, including several in every issue arena, org size and budget, etc.We already have lots of topics in play and through those discussions, I've been getting tons of new ideas and "meeting" new colleagues.
And, if you're not yet on LinkedIn, it's the perfect motivation for you to spend 10 minutes putting up a profile — great networking, discussion groups from all perspectives (I put queries out and get great responses).
Here's how to join now, in 10 minutes or less:
- If you're already on LinkedIn, sign up here today. And welcome, in advance.
- If you're not on LinkedIn yet, sign up here (see Not a User yet line at bottom of page), then join the Getting Attention group. You're going to love being on linkedIn, and part of the group.
Once you're in, ask a question, tell a story, get involved. Like anything else, the more conversation, the richer the experience. Welcome one and all!
Join the discussion over at the new Getting Attention group on LinkedIn! We already have nearly 100 folks talking about key issues nonprofit and foundation communicators need to figure out now. The more of you who jump on board, the richer the discussion and the learning. So please do join the group today.
Once you’re a member (a great learning opportunity at no cost), you can add your 2 cents on priorities for the first 100 days in a nonprofit marketing job, and other lively discussions. Or you can ask your questions of this skilled, interested and active group.
This latest inauguration-inspired query comes from nonprofit marketer Kivi Leroux Miller, who’s crafting an e-book on the topic and eager to feature some sage advice from others in the field. I know you have something to add.
P. S. Don’t miss out on the in-depth articles, case studies and guides on key nonprofit communications topics featured in the Getting Attention e-alert. Subscribe today.
