Are you underestimating the power of communications?
Tuesday Apr 4, 2017
Busy nonprofit leaders tend to focus on the visible, tactical stuff of communications—the emails and tweets and mailings that go out into the world and bring back donors, advocates, and participants.
What would be different at your organization if you viewed communications as an essential, universal strategic function instead?
Thinking of marketing or communications as just a series of externally-facing tactics can be a big missed opportunity, because most of the power of smart communications happens behind the scenes—infusing your entire team of stakeholders with the skills and tools to express a consistent, coherent voice.
Every person who works for your organization is a communicator on some level, whether they’re building partnerships with peers or relationships with participants or connections with advocates or rapport with potential hires. They need tools and strategic support to work at the top of their communications game, just like they need a computer that boots up properly in the morning and lights that turn on when they walk into the office.
So what if we thought beyond the websites and brochures and instead treated communications as a key utility underpinning every aspect of a nonprofit’s work and mission?
What if everyone at your organization looked to your in-house communications team for helpful, expert advice on getting the word out or inviting the world in?
What if programs, development, HR, board, and leadership could all reach out to one, centralized resource for strategic messaging points or insights about how to engage a key audience?
It would be transformative.
Everyone’s efforts would become more efficient and effective. Your programs team would have better tools to recruit and advance your mission. Your board would become more effective ambassadors. You would develop close alignment between what you do, what you say, and how you say it.
And once you’ve made sure your messages, visuals, and strategies all ladder up to and support your organization’s most critical priorities, you could step back and watch the clarity and focus flow through the communications team to every corner of your organization and out into the world.
I’m not pretending it’s easy work.
Assembling a skilled, well-structured team and evolving a culture that treats communications as the lifeblood of your organization is challenging and requires real investment. But wouldn’t it be worth it if you could make clear, effective external communications feel as simple and magical as turning on a light?
5 Factors that make a communications team great
Monday Dec 19, 2016
Nonprofits often begin with the assumption that they (the nonprofit staff) need something that we (the consultants) possess. That special something might be expert help with a particular project, clarity around best practices, or building their skills. But real success in nonprofit marketing and communications comes from more than just great deliverables, advice, or coaching. How your staff does the work is often as important as what that work is.
But what are the essential factors that successful communications teams need within their own organizations to help them do their best work? Kivi Leroux Miller, intrepid CEO of the ever-fabulous Nonprofit Marketing Guide, and I decided to find out. Together, we uncovered five factors that successful nonprofit communications teams have in-house that help them do their best work.
Our free ebook details the five factors, how we uncovered them, and outlines actions you can take within your nonprofit to become even more successful in 2017 no matter your size, location, or mission. Consider it our New Year gift to your nonprofit! We hope it’s useful.
Who Decides Your Communications Workload?
Monday Nov 28, 2016
Kivi Leroux Miller is president of Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com and the award-winning author of two books, “The Nonprofit Marketing Guide: High-Impact, Low-Cost Ways to Build Support for Your Good Cause” and “Content Marketing for Nonprofits: A Communications Map for Engaging Your Community, Becoming a Favorite Cause, and Raising More Money.”
Kivi and I share a passion and similar perspective about helping nonprofit communicators do their best work. Her Communications Trends Report is one of the few data-driven resources out there: I consider it a must-read. In this guest post, Kivi gives us a sneak peak into her most recent findings. - Sarah
Who decides the priorities for your communications team and controls the workload?
Do you know how that compares to other nonprofits?
We are attempting to answer those questions for you in the 2017 Nonprofit Communications Trends Report.
Based on preliminary results from more than 600 nonprofits, there’s no one clear answer.
The most frequent response is that an integrated team of communications and fundraising staff jointly decide on the workload.
But that’s followed closely by other models where the executive director determines the workload, where the communications department acts as an “internal agency,” and where the communications team itself defines its workload.
Do you think the approach in your organization is under-represented or over-represented in these results?
Everyone who takes the survey will receive a free copy of the report in January and be invited to a free webinar a week before the results are released.
