RW&B Communications9Situation AnalysisClient: Sisters Helping SistersClient’s Purpose: Enrich, Empower, Encourage.Sisters Helping Sisters is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit program that supportsindividuals, families and communities by abetting with their capability to overcomechallenges in life, maintain a level of quality in their lives and to benefit fromopportunities. Sisters Helping Sisters first starts with a group of around 40 AfricanAmerican seniors (around 60 years old) who get together once every other Tuesday.Each week they have someone come in and help them facilitate a topic of discussionfor them to talk about and learn new things. This program is there for these womento help each other learn and have a support system and they may have lost over theyears. Volunteers are needed to help facilitate conversations with these women, andhelp drive the women who are not physically able any more. At this point that is allthat we have been able to observe about the client so far without meeting more of itsmembers. They do this by supporting one another throughout times of trial, laughterduring the good times, and give each other the ability to change perspective whenneeded, to build healthy long lasting friendships.Sisters Helping Sisters was first formed by a group of women who desired toget together to learn about topics that interested them including things such ashealth and personal development. Along the way, the program developed further toinclude more members who enjoyed similar interests and gaining an additionalreliable support system. Community involvement, pulling more members into thegroup, and raising funds for additional activities are now some key initiatives SistersHelping Sisters hopes to reach in the near future.Past communication practices have been through word of mouth and little tono technology mediums. Their competition are groups like the Women’s Center atthe YMCA but they personally do not consider them competition because the need is
RW&B Communications10so great that the attitude is “the more the merrier.” The most urgent matter forSisters helping Sisters is diversifying their group and obtaining new facilitators.Growing in size is not a tremendous concern because they can not grow beyond whatthey can handle. Which is also one reason why competition is not a tremendousthreat. Our focus for our client is volunteers and participants.There are many non-profit organizations that are similar to Sisters HelpingSisters. Many organizations are about women helping other women. One of the mainindustry trends that we found with many of these organizations is that they have afoundation and are very active philanthropically. One organizations is called P.E.OSisterhood, a philanthropic organization where women celebrate womanhood. Theyfocus on things such as the advancement of women, education through grants,scholarships, and loans. They also motivate women the achieve their goals andaspirations. They have an excellent website where you can navigate and find outmore information. Their main focus on the website is the foundation where they giveout their scholarshipsIn addition to being there for one another these women also reach out toothers in the community. The WFMY News 2 station did a piece on these women intheir Local Heroes segment. These women are looked at as wonderful supporters ineach others lives and in the lives of other people in need. The women involved inSisters Helping Sisters will go out and visit elderly people who are in nursing homesand they have made cards for them to enjoy. Just a little something for those peopleto know that someone is thinking about them. Every June they also hold a bigfundraising event. So these women are not just sitting around chatting they are outin the community actually getting things done.SWOT Analysis:Strengths:
RW&B Communications11Very low cost budget – Sisters Helping Sisters only spends approximately$2000 per year for all activities and bi-weekly meetings.Communal Organization – The group works with local organizations to savemoney and to be facilitators for their meetings.Works with Journey Church and the library – Sisters Helping Sisters usedpublic facilities such as Journey Church and the library to hold their bi-weeklymeetings.Weaknesses –Has same facilitators – having Journey Church and the library as regularfacilitators is a strength but also a weakness. Sisters Helping Sisters wouldlike to use different facilitators to hold meetings.Lack of diversification – Sisters Helping Sisters needs to diversify theirvolunteers and participants.Lack of donations – There is a need for donations as this limits the program.Opportunities –Volunteer Opportunities – Volunteering in the community is a wonderfulpossibility, where they can benefit the community and themselves. Potentialvolunteering can include knitting hats for the homeless, going to animalshelters, or at Open Door Ministries, which is a Soup Kitchen.Threats –YMCA, Women’s Resource CenterWomen’s Resource Center of Greensboroo Both of these organizations are direct competition to Sisters HelpingSisters. However they are not a threat as the need in the community isso great and Sisters Helping Sisters cannot provide for everyone inneed.Churches and faith organizations – Church’s and faith organizations areindirect competition, as they do not solely provide support for senior women.Key Issues and Implications:Sisters Helping Sisters is a program of the non-profit organization that has alot of room to improve and make their organization better. First, they do not havevery good public awareness. Most of advertising is done by word of mouth. If therewere more awareness about this program many more women would possiblyconsider joining. They also do not have very good communication and technologymediums. They should consider to make a website and a possible way ofcommunicating through email or some sort of technology. These women do one bigfundraiser in June, but the should consider doing more fundraisers and getting
RW&B Communications12involved with the community. If they find ways to be more involved it will get theirname more frequently recognized, which is great strategy for increasing awareness.Another issue is that they also do not have a lot of funding. They should considergetting sponsors or donations form local businesses. For example, getting a localdoctor from Doctors Express on Eastchester to speak with them about healthydieting or simple exercises that they can do safely. Every week they have theirmeetings at different places and possibly outside at a local park when it gets niceroutside. It would bring out diverse situations and would create excitement for manyof the women. They should also consider being more diverse. Many of the womenare African American. Inviting different ethnic women would help bring peopletogether and they would be able to share different experiences.Overall, Sisters Helping Sisters has room for a lot of improvement, but it canbe done with a great strategic communication plan. Providing more ways to improvetheir organization will make them stronger and will help these women becomeeverything that they want to be.
RW&B Communications13Research AnalysisResearch Question: The purpose of this research is to find which channels ofcommunication the direct competition; the YWCA Women’s Resource Center uses toestablish itself.The YWCA Women’s Resource center is the direct competition for SistersHelping Sisters, here in High Point, North Carolina. The YWCA Women’s ResourceCenter website is the top result on Google and Bing searches, when High Point or theTriad region is searched along with. Their website iswww.ywcahp.com/ProgramWRC.htm, which is the link from the Google search. Thefirst thing on the web page is a printable brochure, which has all necessaryinformation for anyone interested in the Women’s Resource Center. Our campaignwill certainly utilize a printable brochure that will be added to the Sisters HelpingSisters Guilford County Resource and Referral Center webpage. At the bottom of thehome page is a printable flyer that is highlighted in blue amongst black text. Theprintable flyer is an easy way for people to print more information about the YWCAWomen’s Resource Center that can be used by anyone who wanted to take personalinitiative to share the organization. This is quite brilliant because they make it veryeasy for anyone who is familiar or influenced with the organization who wants toshow the flyer to a friend or share with the general public. It’s also very easy forsomeone to get the essence of the organization in a simple one-page flyer similar tothe brochure. This is another excellent exemplar, which our campaign strategy willemploy to advance Sisters Helping Sisters online presence to ease any interestedparties examination of the organization.Surprisingly the link www.tgcrrc.org/sistershelpingsisters.html, which wassearched and obtained on Google, does not have a “contact us” section. As thisvirtually being the only online presence Sisters Helping Sister has this has causedsome great concern. This was recognized when comparing the YWCA Women’sResource Centers webpage to Sister Helping Sisters. This certainly will be another
RW&B Communications14addition resulting from surveying the Women’s Resource Centers Website. As timeeventually passes, the senior women who join Sister Helping Sisters will be moretechnologically adept or their children will use online resources to find programs fortheir mothers, which is why it is imperative that Sisters Helping Sisters mustimprove it’s online presence. The YWWCA Women’s Resource Center webpage hasgiven inordinate insight of how to improve the Sisters Helping Sisters onlinepresence.Research Question: The purpose of this secondary research is to determinewhat communication campaigns are successful in other similar programs ororganizations to Sisters Helping Sisters.A piece of useful secondary research was conducted by looking at the types ofcampaigns that similar programs use. Before looking at other practices it wasimperative that the program be successful and caters to a similar market and offersan overall similarity to ensure the results could be successful for our campaign. TheCompass Center for Women and Families based out of Chapel Hill, NC is a nonprofitorganization that’s mission is “Compass Center for Women and Families, createdfrom the merger on July 1, 2012, of Family Violence Prevention Center of OrangeCounty (founded in 2000) and The Women’s Center (founded in 1979), helpsindividuals and families prevent and end domestic violence and become self-sufficient. We provide domestic violence crisis services, career and financialeducation, assistance with legal resources, and adolescent empowerment programs”(http://compassctr.org/about-cc/)Through researching their programs and outreach/communication programswe will be able to create unique and exciting donor and volunteer drives. One suchidea derived from this research was to reach out to local businesses on behalf ofSister’s Helping Sisters in order to institute workplace-giving campaigns. Thesecampaigns would allow local companies to match donations offered by employees to
RW&B Communications15be used for transportation, hosting events and facilitators as well as any budgetitems normally incurred by the program. As an incentive to the business, our teamwould offer free exposure in the form of press releases documenting how muchmoney was raised, as well as the donations being tax exempt. These campaignswould allow a centralized donor and volunteer system as opposed to our teamhaving to knock on every door in town looking for these assets. From an economicstandpoint this would save time and money for the client.Another idea that came from this research is to set up accounts at donationlocations for used clothes and electronics. We would set up an account to be donatedto and the program would receive any proceeds. We would then draft press releasesnotifying key publics of the creation of the donation sites as well as publicize theinformation through the creation of other mediums such as a new website as well ofhard copy information such as pamphlets etc.Research Question: The purpose of this research is to determine whatchannels of communication are already in place with the target market of our finalcampaign that would be suitable to reach our audience allowing for lower cost ofimplementation.The secondary research conducted in an effort to answer the above researchquestion returned results that largely focused on churches. The article by Lau,McDaniel and Busenitz, Growth In Non-Profit Organizations: The Effects Of LeadershipAnd Marketing Communication in Churches. The authors propose that church growthand related programs are primarily determined by two factors; the churchesmarketing communication strategy and the strength of leadership. This is in turnuseful to our campaign because we now know that the strength of a church isdirectly related to marketing communication, showing us that if we are able toconnect with successful congregations in the vicinity of Sisters Helping Sisters, weare likely to gain good feedback. The channels that we know to be successful
RW&B Communications16demonstrated through the results of this research will allow us to have more solidresults.Research Question: The purpose of this research is to show how low budgetnonprofit programs can still make a difference in the lives of participants andcommunity members, even without the endless amounts of money, resources andhigh-level management.When thought the participates of Sisters Helping Sisters only have a budget ofaround $2,000 a year they make the money stretch far all year and will sometimesnot even use all of it. The women work hard to keep the inner workings within theirgroup strong by leaning on one another and by having facilitators come in to helpeducate them.Because these women have such a strong drive for learning and for helpingothers in the community this article helps us to learn how to help them to do this in amore efficient way. Most of the women who are involved in Sisters Helping Sistersare retired or getting close to that time, so thinking about saving all the money thatyou can is always important. In this article we can learn how to educate thesewomen on how they could be getting tax exceptions from all the fund raising thatthey are doing through Sisters Helping Sisters. Plus if they keep doing more it isgoing to be something that they could benefit from.In this article it shows us that organizations that stand apart from everyoneelse are the ones that are working with places such as: universities, hospitals,cultural institutions, and churches. The great thing about Sisters Helping Sisters isthat they are already working with certain churches. They work with the particularchurches that each participant is a member of and they reach out to any church thatthey feel could use their help. As a part of our campaign we were looking to get thesewomen involved with working with High Point University. This article would be ableto help us to show us how that would be able to be possible and how we would be
RW&B Communications17able to do those things in a better fashion. And as listed above we could learn aboutbeing able to getting these women into helping out with other places. That would justbe even more recognition for their program.Research Question: The purpose of this research is to see what ways SistersHelping Sister can improve its SEO compatibility and recognition through nonprofitonline search engines.We found a non-profit database search called greatnonprofits.org.Greatnonprofits.org is an excellent database website that allows users to search forany non-profit organizations in specific areas by entering the city or the zip code. Italso allows users to write reviews and comments on how a specific program hashelped them and improved their lives. When searching this program on Google theyare at the top of the page. Using key words such as “non-profit women programs” or“Great non-profits” will have this database show up at the top of the first page. Isearched for Sisters Helping Sisters in this database and it is not in the database. IfSisters Helping Sisters could become apart of this database it would be great forthem. Not only would they be able to be searched, but also people would be able toread reviews from women in the program and how Sisters Helping Sisters hasimproved and empowered their lives. This would also help their search engineoptimization. Right now when you search “Sisters Helping Sisters” the program inthe Piedmont Triad area does not show up on the first page. It shows up on thebottom of the second page and it is the link to the Guilford County Resource andReferral Center website. We added a few more key words when searching in Googlesuch as “Sisters Helping Sisters High Point, NC” and “Sisters Helping Sisters PiedmontTriad Area.” We found it interesting that Sisters Helping Sisters did not show up at allon the first or second page at all.There is an absence of this program overall in the media around the PiedmontTriad area and on the Internet. Overall, by adding Sisters Helping Sisters to this non-profit database website and other non-profit websites. It would help their overall
RW&B Communications18search engine optimization and would make it easier for people to find out about theprogram.Research Question: The purpose of this research is to examine a successfulmethod of incorporating Sisters Helping Sisters volunteers to better establish thepublic relations campaign and further benefit the organization as a whole.This article is an example of how the Public Affairs Department of The Churchof Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints implemented a valuable public relationscampaign to “increase positive worldwide public awareness of the church; the helppeople better understand the church, its members, and beliefs; and to join withothers to build bridges of friendship and understanding” (Olsen 27). These goals areextremely similar to the ones that Sisters Helping Sisters is seeking to accomplish.Throughout the article, the steps taken toward these goals are elaborated and thepositive momentum seen from taking each step is reflected upon. The key strategiesseemed to be organizing the local network, training the volunteers, and preparing anannual plan. Based on our campaign decision to center the focus of the campaign onlinking Sisters Helping Sisters with High Point University and getting Sisters HelpingSisters members more involved with the events and activities that take place oncampus and are open to the public.In terms of organizing a local network for Sisters Helping Sisters, HighPoint University would be a tremendously helpful local resource where theorganization could take advantage of the series of campus events and activities. Bydeveloping a connection between the organization and the university, there will be asignificant amount and range of enjoyable activities that could be added to theSisters Helping Sisters annual plan. They would be able to decide on which eventsthey’re most interested in attending as a group and from there we could set up auniversity bus to pick the ladies up and transport them to and from the events. Thiswould require a handful of volunteers to assist in the organization of this process.Based on the activities Sisters Helping Sisters members decide appeal to them most,
RW&B Communications19an annual plan could be scheduled marking the dates and times of each event ofchoice. The combination of building stronger community association andappropriately increasing the organization’s activity regimen will be the foundation ofa successful public relations campaign, as well as increase general awareness aboutSisters Helping Sisters and their mission.ReferencesPoverty and Nonprofit Organizational Behavior, 64(2).

We contactedand chose facilitators based on their willingness to help such a program with nocompensation. We also added outside activities to the calendar that would be free tothe program through donation of tickets and the like. Any “legwork” that is requiredto carry out this campaign can easily be done in house by Janice Buxton or PamelaPalmer. These activities consist of maintaining the Facebook page and distributingpress releases. The only work left to be done is putting these things into action, inother words the research, compiling and creation has all been done by our team.tovarious news media outlets which don’t require any money spent.
