However, decisions made without a full understanding of your organization's positioning, target audience and reach can lead you straight down the road to frustration. It's time to re-energize your event marketing campaign to not only get optimal exposure, but have donors and guests digging deeper in their pockets.

At this presentation you will learn how to:

  • Understand your target niche
  • Communicate your mission effectively

  • Serve your audience at a higher level with content that sells
