Where Fundraising & Marketing Align

Marketing can be a scary word for fundraisers. Erika and her guests breakdown topics like messaging and goal setting with relatable, informal and wide-ranging conversations.

What marketing should be

I recently had a chanceto be a guest on Erica's podcast and I am thrilled there is something like this out there for modern marketers. We have to erase this notion that marketing is about lying to people and understand that marketing can empower, communicate, inspire and enable people to find the products, services or causes they need. When we use marketing for good rather than evil, magic happens. Thanks Erica for shining a light on this important topic that companies can do good AND do well.
