I think you’ll want to know about an email I received last week from the communications coordinator of a small, vibrant nonprofit based in San Francisco.

She was ramping up to develop new messages for her organization and, as part of that process, asked her colleagues to vote for the best taglines in the 2012 Getting Attention Nonprofit Tagline Awards. (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/tagline-awards)

48 hours. That’s how much time you have to enter the 2012 Nonprofit Tagline Awards before they close at COB, Wednesday, July 25.

I don’t want you to miss the deadline. Because here’s what happens when you take 180 seconds to enter your tagline(s):

  • You’re invited to join me in a free webinar on a game-changing skill: 4 Low-Cost, High-Impact Ways to Test Your Messages; and
  • You get access to the fully-updated Nonprofit Tagline Report and searchable Tagline Database of 6,500+ nonprofit taglines, two of the most useful messaging tools there are.

Your response to findings from our  Nonprofit Messages Survey highlights your desire for messages that connect quickly and strongly with the people whose help you want and how few of your organizations have those messages in place. This is a huge opportunity to improve your connection with your base, and one that’s absolutely doable by organizations of every size.

Now I want to focus hard on one of the most valuable opportunities there is, in part because it’s seldom used by organizations like yours—taglines for your advocacy and fundraising campaigns, and your special events.

Get this: Just 33% of nonprofits with advocacy initiatives in place have used a tagline for one or more of their advocacy campaigns (see chart). That means 67% of advocacy campaigns (probably more, because respondent organizations may have used an advocacy campaign tagline just once) have a clear path to stronger results.

In the competition for attention and connection, your messaging is one of the most powerful marketing strategies your nonprofit has, but is frequently left half-done or overlooked altogether.

I’d like to help you with that via a straightforward swap: you give me your attention for five minutes, and I’ll share my expertise on a key path to “getting attention.”

Here’s what I propose:

  • You take five minutes of your time to tell me about your organization’s messaging—the who, what and how; what’s working well; and what’s getting in the way, etc.— via this online survey (deadline June 13).
  • In return for your time, I’ll invite you to join me for a no-charge, limited-enrollment webinar later this summer: How to Tell Your 5-Star Stories.  You’ll learn how to:
  • Find the great stories in your organization
  • Shape characters your supporters will connect with
  • Structure your stories with three proven plots.

So many of you have been asking that I wanted to let you know a.s.a.p.: The Nonprofit Tagline Awards (a.k.a. The Taggies) are coming back this summer. Great Words Promoting Good Causes!

This will be the fourth awards program, and I’m  thrilled about it: Because I believe strongly that  a strong tagline does double-duty — working to extend your organization’s name and mission, while delivering a focused, memorable and repeatable message to your base. It’s one of your most effective marketing tools, but a GettingAttention survey showed that 72% of nonprofit organizations don’t have a tagline or rate theirs as performing poorly.
