Make Yourself More Appealing (with Kevin Sylvester)

It's less than 3 months until the end of the year. Don't send out a haphazardly written appeal letter this year! Make yourself more appealing by learning the tips, tricks, and successes of dynamo direct mailings.

This session will provide a start-to-finish timeline to help you prepare, distribute, and appropriately thank your supporters during your next mailing campaign. (Wait, was the dreaded "c word" used – campaign? Yes! There's a lot more to a successful direct mail appeal than just getting your letter out the door.)

The presenters will share some of their secrets that they have used successfully to raise more money for nonprofits in Montana and beyond. Come see real-life examples (good, bad and ugly!) and learn research-based techniques that work in letter campaigns.

You'll leave with a planning calendar and new ideas that will help your next letter campaign raise more money for your organization.
