  • What is the goal? • Seth Godin has talked about raving fans. For non-profit organizations and charities, I think a better word is believers, advocates, your “Tribe” or whatever… • Your tribe can be workers, contributors, donors, volunteers, board members and beneficiaries of your services. • The goal? Build a bigger tribe and base of believers www.marketingsavant.com The MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Your Website • Your “home base” • Sets the tone, authority and mission – needs to be “perfect” www.marketingsavant.com The MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
