September Run Walk Ride Fundraising Success Newsletter

"This is too competitive a field, people will never share info."

That was the bummer of a response I received from the first nonprofit event fundraiser I spoke to nine years ago about the concept of the Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council.   Fortunately, others were more open to the idea. Since then, thousands of P2P pros have embraced our culture of sharing.
 
 
 
Finally, in the spirit of learning from one another, we recently launched a new initiative, P2P Spotlight, to publicly recognize the dedication of people doing great work in our industry. Check out profiles on Kymberlee Setterberg, Craig Comins and Marcie Maxwell - all featured in September. Let me know who you think we should feature.

What you'll learn during this interactive seminar:

  • Characteristics of emails that get opened
  • The key to writing email subject lines for mobile readers
  • Words that work in headlines - and words that don't
  • How to write email subject lines for just about every situation
  • How to write visually so the reader has a clear image in mind
  • How to use our blueprints and checklists to inspire your writing
