Nonprofit Branding on a Shoestring
Most of us understand the concept of branding as it relates to Apple or Starbucks but we often make the fundamental mistake of believing that there’s no value in a brand unless you can sink lots of money into marketing it. Even in a nonprofit, your brand is a key way you can distinguish yourself from similar organizations and the way you establish your personality and the experience of working with you. As a nonprofit, you are in a position to create a powerful brand that moves people to want to support you. But that means everyone in the organization must recognize and understand its brand – what it is and why you need it – before it can have any impact on your audiences.
This class will make you appreciate the power of your brand so you can harness it, even without a big budget to back it up. You’ll go from the basics of what makes a brand to what your brand can do for you, who is in in charge of it, and how you can strengthen it. You will be excited by the prospects of how to shape and articulate your brand, with limited resources, and how to manage and evaluate branding strategies so that they support your message and your mission
