Nonprofit Relationship BuildingThanks to guest blogger Allison Fine, who authored this new guide to nonprofit relationship building, Matterness: What Fearless Leaders Know About the Power and Promise of Social Media.

One of the most amazing things about social media is that they allow people to talk directly with one another. This is also one of the things that make social media so terrifying for organizations used to broadcasting at people rather than speaking with them.

17-year-old Malala Yousafzai gave an unforgettable speech as she accepted her Nobel Peace Prize today. Despite her youth, Malala’s words show her insight and communications finesse! In fact, this core message from the speech is an unbeatable combo of passion, specificity and brevity.

Use this triad as a checklist for your organization’s messages. Less IS more—much harder to craft but totally worth it.

Delight with Your Nonprofit Communications

Zappos is known for its operations smarts and customer-friendly orientation. But this delightful addition to the return confirmation email I received from Zappos this morning was a real surprise—That trip over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house went smoothly.

Here’s what I love about it:

  • Transforms a transactional communication from mundane to meaningful, so Zappos is far more likely to be remembered and returned to for a future purchase
    • Zappos emails on returns, purchases and marketing millions (billions?) times daily. That’s a lot of relationship nurturing power, at little cost (time, effort or dollars)
    • Consider the possibilities for making your donation thank you or program registration emails more meaningful and memorable.

Nonprofit Message Impact

When my friend and colleague Stephanie Bowen announced her new job at MAMA (Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action), I was thrilled for her, but didn’t really probe what MAMA was about. Knowing her search had been focused on development organizations working with women, I figured MAMA fit into that category and left it at that.

But last week, after jealously Facebook-following Stephanie’s work-related travel adventure in India, I had to know more. Naturally, I went right to the Who We Are page on MAMA’s website…
