Did you miss the storytelling web class?
Nearly 800 registered! Wow! We had an amazing turn-out… but I understand how sometimes life intervenes and you can’t attend live.
I shared some best practice reminders, some new “hot off the press” fundraising data, plus:
1. The 3 things YOUR stories are likely NOT doing. Yet.
2. Why to pay attention to both the emotional and rational part of our brain.
3. The story of receiving a $150k contribution after only sharing stories, not asking for a gift.
4. Lori’s 7 Rules for Storytelling.
During the web class I announced the launch of Mission Moment Monday’s starting in January 2018. Every Monday in 2018 my Fire Starters blog will feature one nonprofit professional receiving coaching on their story.
For those who attended, I promised a few links to blog posts and resources that will answer some of your questions. I’m sure those who catch the replay will also find these helpful.
