    How do I start a podcast for my nonprofit?

    How do I start a podcast for my nonprofit?

    Here’s a great idea: let’s do a podcast episode about podcasting. Podcasts are a simple and relatively inexpensive way for nonprofits to reach a wider audience. But actually doing it, creating and producing your nonprofit podcast, can be daunting. So today we’re talking to Travis Johnson, a fellow podcaster for nonprofits, who you may know as the brains behind Nonprofit Architect. Travis is a terrific ambassador for nonprofit podcasting and has resources available on the Nonprofit Architect website to help you get started. We’re going to walk through some of those steps to show you just how easy it is while also being honest about what the real challenges are in producing a consistent podcast. One of those is podcasting live, as I’ve done from the start of this show, but early on in this episode I actually lose my signal completely and leave you Travis’s capable hands for a brief period. A good example of how things in podcasting are rarely perfect. But don’t let that put you off, let’s hear instead how you can get started.

    Is the Google Ads Grant worth it?

    Is the Google Ads Grant worth it?

    Welcome to season 4 and we’re going to start with something a bit different - a two part podcast over two episodes because our first topic is so big, so huge, so potentially complicated that we need two shows to cover it. Our topic is Google Ad Grants, which gives $10,000 of google ads to nonprofits every month. How much fundraising can you raise with $10,000 of free google ads? Sounds like a no-brainer. Paid ads specialist Silvia Coletto walks us through all the things you need to have in place to qualify and then all the things you need to think about to make sure this program is for you. Next time we’ll pick up the question of making it work well.
    Our nonprofit partner is Toybox, the global effort to get children off the streets. Visit toybox.org.uk.

    How do I make the most out of Google Ads Grants?

    How do I make the most out of Google Ads Grants?

    So last time we heard why most nonprofits who’ve been around at least a year should consider the Google Ads Grant. This episode, paid ads specialist Silvia Coletto returns to discuss what you need to have in place to be successful with the grant. And interestingly, most of those things have nothing to do with google or the grant. They’re all about how you position the use of Google within your own marketing objectives. Why bring people to your website, for example, if they’re not going to find what they’re looking for? And that’s why they’re searching on google - for some type of answer or content that responds to their google search. So how does that fit into your marketing? Let’s hear from Sylvia.
    And like last time, our nonprofit partner for this episode is Toybox, find out more at toybox.org.uk.

    Where do I start with my End of Year campaign?

    Where do I start with my End of Year campaign?

    December is a big month for most nonprofits in terms of donations but how do you know you’re making the best of the giving season? What plans do you need to have in place and how far in advance? This episode I’m speaking to marketing expert Monica Pitts about the support she provides to nonprofits in planning their end of year campaigns. It’s never too early to start (of course) but it’s also not like you’re starting from scratch. Dust off what works, repurpose things that have resonated with your donor base and decide who’s doing what. And don’t forget volunteers and having seasonal fun with peer-to-peer projects. Monica has great advice for small teams with limited resources as well as those hoping to build and grow their end of year campaigns from previous years. Before we hear from her and how to get her end-of-year checklist and other resources, let me give a shout out to this episode’s nonprofit partner, Journey to Esquire, who supports women and people of color to get their law degrees and pass the bar.

    How do I find donors?

    How do I find donors?

    If there’s one question that immediately identifies someone as being in the nonprofit world, it’s “how do I find donors”? This is THE fundamental problem that nonprofits face every single day. So who better to talk to about this question than donor cultivator extraordinaire, Jay Frost. We had to wait a few extra minutes while Jay wrangled with Chrome and then Firefox browsers to recognize his camera but the wait was well worth it - listen to Jay explain where donors are and which donors you should be looking for.

    How do I fix my fundraising quickly without duct-tape?

    How do I fix my fundraising quickly without duct-tape?

    I’m no handyman but I do know that if something’s stuck, use WD-40 and if something’s moving when it’s not supposed to, use duct-tape. And it would appear that in nonprofits we use a lot of metaphorical duct-tape to fix the shaky bits in our fundraising. In the absence of a spray or pill that makes people suddenly love fundraising, today we’ve got Rachel Ramjattan who’s trained over 300 grassroots organizations to fundraise. She’s laid out a huge chunk of her training in her book, No More Duct-Tape Fundraising, and today she shares her answers to the three questions she gets asked the most: how do I find my Oprah or other super-rich benefactor, how do I get my board to fundraise and finally as Chief Everything Officer how do I find the time? We start with why people don’t like fundraising in the first place - and of course, Rachel has a great story to share.
