What is Nonprofit Marketing?
  “Marketing is so basic that it
   cannot be a separate function. It
   is the whole business seen from
   the point of view of its final
   results, that is, from the
   stakeholder’s point of view.”
              Marketing Guru Peter Drucker

Marketing consists of the strategies and tactics
  used to identify, create and maintain satisfying
    relationships with your donors, members,
  volunteers, clients and other stakeholders that
result in value for both your organization and your
                    stakeholders.

How Can you identify needs?
1.   Identify a number of your clients and ask them if you
     can come interview them for 15 -20 minutes. Another
     option is to do a survey or focus group lead by
     someone other than staff from your nonprofit.
2.   Ask what each sees as the five most important things
     they look for at your nonprofit.
3.   Once identified, ask them to rank them from 10 – 1.
4.   Then ask them how well you have done in meeting
     their needs. Ask them to measure these from 10 to 1.
5.   After interviewing as many as you can, create a master
     list the customer needs with the two measures after
     each.

The Marketing Plan
GCN Marketing Plan Outline
     Christopher Lemley, GSU, J Mack Robinson College of Business
                        Marketing Department

A Marketing Plan is a written strategy for generating
  revenue for an organization. It is a reflection of how a
  company views itself; its position in the market place;
  and how it intends to gain and retain customers and
  a resulting revenue stream. A successfully
  implemented Marketing Plan is backed by carefully
  collected market-, customer- and Competitor
  information; general marketing conditions; and it is
  built upon how a company thinks of its own strength
  and weaknesses.

Why Prepare a Marketing Plan?
The Plan enables you to recognize and take action on any trends
  and consumer preferences that other companies may have
  overlooked, and to develop and expand your own select
  group of customers now and into the future.
The Plan also shows to others that you have carefully considered
  how to produce a product or service that is market-facing,
  unique and acceptable to current and future customers-
  improving your chances of stable-to increasing sales and
  margins.

Editor's Notes

  1. In other words, nonprofit marketing effects the whole enterprise while keeping focused on the stakeholder’s.
  2. What really differentiates marketing is the focus on the customer.
  3. This means success will come to that organization that best determines the perceptions, needs and wants of target markets and satisfies them through the design, communication, pricing and delivery of appropriate and competitively viable offerings.
  4. I suggest goals should be long term. Don’t see marketing as a quick fix. Well stated goals will lead to positive marketing initiatives. Communications goal might be “Build awareness, increase understanding and motivate
  5. You should always develop communications goals to support your organizational goals. Why? Communications provides the means to get the message out to your target audiences to promote and support and ensure success at implementing your customer-motivated benefits.
  6. An important and often overlooked step in creating a strategic marketing plan is evaluating internal, market, and external conditions. Knowing and understanding the environment in which a nonprofit is operating is critical to its success. Internal conditions include such things as values, skills, staff, systems, and structures. Market conditions include the funding climate, a comparative analysis of other organizations, and the organizational niche or distinctive competence. Further, an organization must understand the external conditions in which it is working. External factors include social, cultural, technological, ecological, economic, and political factors.
  7. A CAS should be supported by resources &amp; skills/capabilities. It should be employed in a market that contains market segments that will value the advantage. It should face up to your competitors. And, it needs to be supported by your organization’s strengths &amp; qualities.
  8. Market segmentation is done by dividing the whole into definable parts to identify, name, and describe these pieces in a way that makes sense for an organization. Typically, the market is segmented by demographics— by age, gender, and education. It is also useful to segment the market by psychographics—values, attitudes, and lifestyles. One tool for thinking about the market in a more useful way is to ask, “How does the potential audience relate to x?” with “x” being the organization’s cause or issue.
  9. Market Segmentation identifies and drills down on whom you provide services.
  10. Example, We held town hall meetings to access and rank the services for a senior services agency that supported centers and meals on wheels in 6 locations. We invited agency partners, e.g., county government &amp; funders. We learned a lot about needs being met &amp; not met. Varied depending on the demographics of each area as well as the behavioral, cultural and psychosocial differences of the clients.
  11. Be sure and get a mix of clients. If you only go to the best clients your results will be skewed.
  12. Who are some of the stakeholders or publics for your nonprofit? All audiences are stakeholders (or presumptive stakeholders), but not all stakeholders are audiences. For example, if a charity commissions a public relations agency to create an advertising campaign to raise money to find a cure for a disease, the nonprofit and the people with the disease are stakeholders, but the audience is anyone who is likely to donate money.
  13. A positioning statement is a tight, focused description of the core target audience to whom a brand, is directed, and it provides a compelling picture of how the nonprofit wants its targeted audiences to view them . A well-constructed positioning statement brings focus and clarity to the development of a marketing strategy and tactics.
  14. Programs are your most profound way to distinguish yourself in the market. Nonprofit audiences want and need substance behind a promise or message. They look closely at what an organization is doing to determine
  15. Also known as the Four P’s. Although marketing is many things an impacts all aspects of a nonprofit, it can usually be broken down into the 4 P’s.
  16. A service is an intangible product involving a deed, performance, or an effort that cannot be physically possessed. Dominant component is intangible. Major differences between goods and services are: Intangibility Inventory--over/under booking restaurant capacity Inseparability--of production and consumption Inconsistency/Consistency
