We all know our marketing efforts are an important part of a healthy planned giving program. Just like a good exercise regimen, a good marketing plan takes into consideration where you are and is built to grow with you over time. Are you a beginner just starting out? Are you training to reach the next level? Nicole will coach you through how to start a new marketing program as well as when to make modifications and push yourself as your program strengthens. Join us to learn key strategies you can apply right away to start seeing immediate results.
