This webinar will give you all the steps -- from concept to writing, design, and printing -- for creating a direct-mail newsletter that will motivate your donors to give and keep on giving.
Your presenter, Jeff Brooks, was one of the creators of the original “Domain Formula” that turned nonprofit newsletters from a cost center to a revenue generator. Jeff is the author of three books: The Fundraiser's Guide to Irresistible Communications, The Money-Raising Nonprofit Brand, and How to Turn Your Words into Money.
Jeff has created thousands of newsletters for nonprofit organizations across North America and Europe. He’ll show you the tested and proven best practices for newsletters that get results.
These newsletter tactics have been shown to raise money at a clip that sometimes exceeds direct mail appeals. Better yet, they significantly improve donor retention rates -- that’s the “Holy Grail” of successful fundraising programs!
These powerful newsletter tactics are based on hundreds of scientific tests -- no guesswork or consultant hype here! Just solid knowledge that gets the job done!
