Let’s face it––there’s nothing more frustrating than knowing you need to do more with your nonprofit’s communications, only to feel like you’re spinning your wheels, feeling disorganized and never actually creating the content you need. And there’s nothing more disheartening than not having the time you think you need to devote to a project or be too overwhelmed to know where to start. You know that you should be communicating with your donors and highlighting on social media the good work your nonprofit is doing. Maybe you’ve even tried to post frequently but other tasks seem to need your attention more.
It’s not quite working.
Nonprofit founders, executive directors and development directors have a lot of responsibilities. It’s normal to want to get the programming off the ground and raise funds first. That may seem like the easier part. You already know that putting together effective communications is a time investment, and time can be hard to come by.
You’ve seen other people make it look easy. But for you, it’s been anything but. You thought that the hard part was going to be raising funds and creating programming, but as it turns out, that was only just the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something. And you’re not alone.
Most nonprofit founders, executive directors and development directors can see the big picture. You know the impact you could make. You know that your organization’s mission will be life-changing for your target population. The truth is that having key communications pieces nailed down during the startup phase is a game-changer, but to do that you’ll need pieces that will educate your audience, a communications plan and even a system for producing content again and again for your key stakeholders.
The problem? Communications aren’t the only thing on your plate. Programming and fundraising need your attention too and it takes time to create these key pieces often make achieving seamless communications seem like more trouble than it’s worth.
But what if there was a way to make sure you got it right?
