It’s my eleventh year here in new york. Right now, i’m doing. I’ve got a couple projects going. I just took over as the music director for a show that is running off broadway called wicked frozen it’s it’s kind of what it sounds like it is a mash up of the two blockbusters, and it makes fun of them. It’s very, very funny. It runs sunday nights through labor day at st lukes theater on west forty sixth street. And i have a monthly songwriter siri’s now in brooklyn, which is happening this thursday at bar chord out. Did ms park s o this thursday at nine p? M okay, i should be a lot of funds. Grayce, right?

We’re all working on it. Ok, so tell me about the thiss pursuing e-giving outlook. Yeah, yeah, i jumped the gun. I gave away the goodies. Uh, front e-giving outlook is a report that we deal with. This is our third year in a row did to do this where we really take a bunch of the major industry trends in our sector. We look at the giving us a report. We look at target analytics donor-centric index. We look at the end, men are online sexual support, and we kind of digest those into one white paper that we put together with our insight from various fundraisers and marketers. Here on the scene. Cool. So it’s a it’s a roundup that’s around up there, claire. So, yeah. So, taylor, what would you say is the most surprising thing that you that you learned is you put together the white paper? I mean, it’s interesting to see, just like the magnitude of giving, you know, and it’s a four hundred ten billion dollar industry. I think that that’s just astounding. Um, one thing i think is an interesting thing to call out izz the growth in individual e-giving continues sort of surpassed growth and other areas when looking at e-giving by foundations, corporations uh, requesting like that all of it is growing, but individual were only makes up seventy percent of the land of the living landscape. And, um, i think that’s interesting to know that that’s the one that still continues to grow with the fastest pace. I also would say that the trends and online and mobile e-giving we’re starting to see that you know, traffic here once fifty percent of coming from mobile and hard about what you need to be thinking about global should have been yeah, you should have been for years now, so in addition to the paper, there’s, also a webinar that people could watch right, even though webinars passed, they can get the archive on the landing page, right? Yeah, okay, and that is that page for you to get the pursuing e-giving outlook, the paper, and also to watch the webinar is tony dahna slash pursuing capital, p capital p, for pursuing and please. Okay, taylor, i want to thank you very much. Hey, thank you, thank you. Having me on. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and thank you again for your support of non-profit radio. Love you. Yeah, of course. All right, speculator. Okay, um, i brought a little history along. Claire. Come my love for you. Yes, history i love brought the you helped me devise these show sheets, which i’ve, you know, tweets a little bit over the years. But you gave me the basic format years ago, eight years ago, to be exact labbate started twenty ten started this gig and that’s a lot of things. And your first show, it was july twenty third, two thousand ten, and that was that was shown over two. You were only a second. Showed you on the second show you believe? That’s great. I’m not upset that you weren’t on showed over one. Well, i i think i helped you sort of get show number one together, and so i feel definitely a part of show number one, and i’m honored to be i think we are number two. You are. You wouldn’t come on number one because that because show number one was called tony martignetti show. Yeah, we never called it that thing i made you change told me that name sucks. Yeah, well, i need you need to have non-profit people are googling like non-profits. Yeah. Tony martignetti non-profit radio show that’s it twenty martignetti probably reinardy morphed eight years later. So you were willing to come on with the title improved show number two s. So what do we talked? We talked about oh, storytelling in jargon zoho jargon. And we came up with a guard in jail. So i have to admit george in jail is claire miree dafs construct? Yes, jargon. Jail sametz somewhere to seo non-profit order, right? Like we need to raise money to build capacity. So we conserve more you? Yes, i was passing building in way. Want to help more young people? Yes, young people not use right. Alright. So jargon jail was your oh yeah. And so so since july twenty third, two thousand ten it’s amazing is your first show sheet right there. That’s eight years ago it was donald trump was not president, right? No wass obama obama was two thousand ten force obama. Alright, way. Don’t do politics. I’m not properly. Please, uh, unless i say so. All right. So, um, one of the xero we have a bunch of listener stories. Why don’t you? Don’t you read our first story on dh then that’s who? It’s by okay, there you go and, you know, we’re joyce is from i don’t know, okay, so so tony and i, when we were trying to think of what a good topic would be for this four hundred show, we came up with the idea that let’s find out why people started working and non-profits people don’t go to college and major non-profit so don’t lend up in non-profits way collected stories from our listeners and others about why people working non-profits so here is a story by joyce heavy, and she says the seed was planted in the nineteen seventies when i was in my twenties. I’m sixty nine now. I was in mogadishu, somalia, living on the upper floor of a hotel. It was evening almost dark, and i looked down into a dusty alley. I saw a young man walking and carrying a large caught almost a twin size bed on his head later in the lobby, i mentioned it to a friend, and she said, don’t you know, he was looking for a place to put his bed down for the night that planted a seed in my heart to seek opportunities to work, to help others. Have a better lives? I did my first americorps year with volunteer maryland in two thousand five at the age of fifty plus at partners and care of maryland, and they hired me as a grant writer. Now i have moved on till langton green and annapolis. I’m in annapolis all the time. They provide homes and support two adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We got a little more time. According to my little schedule here. So why don’t we read another story? I was that’s what i was going to say. How about i do want you read one, please. This is, uh, kate cover line. She put it on the website. It was the employee culture that first got me involved with non-profit work non-profit office atmosphere is typically one of collaboration, creativity and scrappiness. Read adaptability here, a junior achievement of greater washington. We’re a close knit bunch, often working on many large projects across multiple departments development, education and operations as a young professional wanting to learn as much as i possibly could. The non-profit environment was a perfect match for me. I find myself wearing multiple hats on a daily basis, and i wouldn’t have it any other way. Awesome. Thank you. Keep cover line. And she’s in d c she was in dc. We got dc. We got annapolis. Thanks, kate. Great story. Thank you. Starting to see a theme of help, you know, helping others. Not surprising. Right? All right.

Scott stein, yes, i should like a little music. All right, so your your music directing this show, first of all, i am not you okay. Any any recording coming up is that? Is that a bad? Is that a tough question? Asked a nen dependent position. No, it’s, a totally fair question. I’m just a little bit of a lull in terms of recording right now, so i’m just spending my time. I’m working on all right development timed other projects, including this, this off broadway show, i conduct four different chorus is here in new york city on de so those air that’s taken a lot of my effort right now, but i’m still playing, and i’m still writing, and hopefully, soon hopefully getting back in the studio.

My friend josh becker. Yeah, she was my roommate. Okay, where was he? Where? Here. On the upper west side. Okay. Josh becker introduced us. I loved cheap red wine. I told scottie what i was looking for. He suggested this song. I listened to it and it was magic. And so, september six. Twenty thirteen i was the first time he was on that. That cheap red wine was played. And it’s been our theme song. Everything. So what did you have for music? Before that we stole something from beauty and the neo-sage treyz. I tried to find josh becker. The crack attorney tried to find who license who owns it. The light from its very hard. A lot of songs are like nobody will know it’s not us, it’s, not us. It was an old song free fried green tomatoes way could not find i did, we did. Dilgence i hired attorney, try to find the right find who that license it from. We could not, so we just kept stealing, and then the first time scott was on the show was our two hundredth show, which was july eighteenth, twenty fourteen.

Thanks for being a part of our four hundred show and the show on the show month after month. Thank you. Congrats, honey. Thank you, jean. Um, so, let’s read some stories again now. Okay? Let’s. See what you got? Maybe a little background music for like, that was a short one from from daniela’s maori. Danielle mauer. Now, she was one of our listeners that we have a week this week. Yes, i think i know her. Hi, daniel. So danielle says i’ve always enjoyed working with non-profits from as a penn state student government to helping start new york cares day to working for international dyslexia association to amazing brooklyn book festival. You always feel better when supporting a non-profit volunteer staff donorsearch just do it. Just do it. Thanks, danielle. Just do it. Just work with non-profits help people. I’ve heard that somewhere before. Just gets to do something for me and tell me that that’s daniel’s? Yes. Okay, it’s. Not even a nike stolen from daniel. I know that. Some of what little i know about sports. I have t shirts and gave me it’s, a guy swinging a baseball bat, says touchdown, that’s, hard that’s, my sports, that’s, my sports repertoire. So i’m not even gonna ask you, mr yankees nick’s, because you’re in new york, this like may, when the knicks and the bucks on the hawk see you’re from new jersey, so you’re probably like a yankees fan. Your parents rocks the hawks, the jets, they all get together for the next hour past of those for the super series. What year? Tony what’s. Here we have a super siri’s, super serious. All right, i got one, i got one. This ah, karen graham she’s, the executive director of idealware she’s, been a guest. Idealware is a very good, very good non-profit helps organization’s used technology and mates, rates all kinds of different software. That’s, great before non-profits they should be on the show. Yes, it really is. Karen graham summer before i graduated college, i worked at a summer camp run by united cerebral palsy that was my first non-profit job camp sandy wheels, everyone helped out with the chores according to their abilities. One of the campers was a preteen boy who had limited control over his arm muscles, resulting in some erotic spastic movements. So maybe you can imagine what happened when it was his turn to help wash the dishes after dinner. I don’t think he’d ever washed dishes before he was having the time of his life, splashing soap and water all over the room and grinning from ear to year, delighted to be doing his part. That was heartwarming, but that’s not why i got into non-profit work what inspired me to a career in non-profits was his parents a t end of the week, they told me how grateful they were that he got to have this experience while they enjoyed a week of respite, hearing that help me to understand how our work at the camp was making a difference for families all year round. She’s no longer on the front in the front lines of helping people but she’s still got to be a part of the profession that is itself enriching people’s lives. Big, big support idealware can ground that’s great. Thank you so much. Thank you, thank you. All right, i’ve got a story it’s from diana in virginia. So diana says that after working a variety of jobs from commercial fishing worked up in alaska and like a salmon place to investment banking and private jet sails, she worked in a private jet sails. She said she wanted to be part of something that contributed to more than simply enriching already wealthy members of society, so she wanted to do something better. So she took the first non-profit job that caught her eye answering phones at an in house member call center for national wildlife group. Once she got her foot in the door, her previous experience and skills helped her naturally progress to development work by chatting with donors and fielding tough questions from their diverse constituency. She really learned what motivates different types of donors to give and participate or not, and why? So? She says, though her job responsibilities ended up including large direct mail campaigns in mass marketing, everything she learned from working with donors on that front line, answering those phone calls confirmed what she already knew. No amount of aggregated data can substitute for personal interaction with the donor. A quick, friendly thank you call can establish your strength of a relationship is easily as a crappy postcard can end one. So picking up the phone, chatting with a donor, you’ll learn so much more about why they give and why other donors like that give them just like senate. Crappy direct mail was buy-in dahna thank you, doctor. Thank you. All right, we need to take a break. Weinger cps, it’s personal now huge to you just heard him talk. That was him.

Love what you do, and they’re just proud to be a sponsor. Thanks, tony. Thank you so much, trent. Um, you you are so generous at pursuing there’s there’s. This constant resource is available.

Through a variety of webinars and white papers and other things that we do, no matter how large or how small you are, we’re hopeful ableto help some folks out, you know, for the second half of the year, we’ve been working hard on something that over the years we’ve learned things. One of the things that i think most important is that the smaller non-cash profits that don’t have the resources to hyre firms to help him out of that at a deep level, we’re trying to make some of those tools more accessible youand your listeners have known that we’ve been working on that for a while, wade got some exciting things on the horizon to make better sense of all that data out there that that folks have and be able to make that more actionable and getting better results without having that we’re not having to spend a lot of money, so we’re driven by by creating tools, you know, i think that that’s an opportunity out there right now, there’s more competition than ever out there for the same dollars and stay on top of mind for your constituents and being able to keep up. In that to a conversation is really important, and while there are a lot of great point tools out there would like to call them, and we encourage everybody to use things like that that are free or very inexpensive with non-profit states being able to pull that data together being ableto you have the appropriate relevant conversations to your here’s donors and your prospects and volunteers on your advocate, you are really important so that some of the stuff we’re working on cool and, you know, small and midsize non-profits that’s the audience, you know, where we’re big non-profit ideas for the other ninety five percent, and i’m always saying every week, actually, a couple times a week pursuant data driven technology enable ana, i know and that’s that’s a big no that is a challenge area for small and midsize shops. Yeah, not always accessible, i think you know the big non-profits have a lot more resources, and while we appreciate the opportunity to work with them and learn from them, i’m really driven for the drive system for the quote unquote little guy, the small, the medium sized non-profit that’s passionate about what they’re doing and that most of the time spent, you know, driving for the mission of the organization and fund-raising is an important aspect of that, but how do we make that more simple? How do we make it more accessible? How do we make it more affordable? And so i think that the market will be really excited about some of the stuff that we’ll be bringing out twenty eighteen by way of tools to apply all of that. We’re taking the concepts that you hear out there about business intelligence and artificial intelligence, predictive modeling, and we’re going to simplify that to make it as easy as the way you might use google maps and make it easy for the smaller, medium sized non-profit put it to use and to raise more money and more connected to their constituents. That’s what’s really important, excellent trench. Well, i look forward to sharing the word of all that stuff as it comes out with our with our audience with our over twelve thousand growing on die again.

Thank you for making all of this information from all of your great contributors available. Teo non-profit sector it’s it’s. Invaluable. Thank you. Uh, what do you got going on, gene? But you got a little little takeaway. Will tip you wanna leave? Leave us with? Sure. You know, i thought i’d talk really briefly about having a politician appear in your charity event. We recently had way did have someone forced chamber. Yeah, it got a lot of attention, so i didn’t talk about that specifically wanted to make sure everybody knew that political leaders can be invited to speak on issues of public policy and issues of importance that charity events. But you’ve got to be careful about it, so make sure you know five oh one see threes aren’t allowed to engage in election. Nearing, so provide instructions to the politicians or their staff, people about not campaign campaigning or speaking on political campaign issues. Uh, you know, at the charity event, and if they start campaigning, you might choose to interrupt politely and strategically, if possible. You know, sometimes that may not be possible if it’s the president of the united states, that might be very, very politically challenging to do that. But afterwards, don’t wait long at the end of the speech of possible make a statement about the charity being a partisans uh, organization don’t wait several days and have the statement come from the top of your leadership. So jean, what is the worst case scenario that could happen to a five a one? C three non-profit if, for instance, a candidate came and super campaigned and broke all those rules and you didn’t do anything about it, what’s what could happen? What’s the outcome right now, the rules say the remedy is taking away its five a onesie three tax exempt status so that’s the rule you know, right now in the political climate, president trump and the republican party platform say that they want to get rid of that rule, but they haven’t gotten rid of that ruled yet, so they would actually like to open up election hearing toe all five, twenty three public charities. But that hasn’t happened yet, and it may never happen. We hope that it doesn’t happen, but the rule right now don’t let it happen because you could lose your tax. Exempt that claire’s got another question for another question. Have you heard about a cherry that has lost its tax exempt status? Because of that? Yeah, it happens pretty rarely and particularly much more rarely. I haven’t heard of any since the new administration. But you would see a handful every year lose their tax exempt status for just that reason. Okay. Interesting. Cool. Very timely topic as always. Jean jean takagi, always on top of things s oh, so grateful, gene. Thank you so much. Thanks. What a pleasure. Thanks, tony. Thanks, clarence. Got have a great thank you. Thanks for your good wishes. So long, gene. We got we got alex career alt-right not not yet. Okay, we’ll get to him. Um, let’s. Um, let’s. Take our little break. Then we got we got we got a little business.

And, of course, that’s at tony martignetti dot com feels good in sixty nine, and that is tony stick to we got maria simple online. I’ll bet we don’t have a reassembly yet. Wow. Okay, i’ll tell you what, let’s do a little math quiz clay morrow, because i’m really good at math. So exactly, um, and i’m a lawyer. So we picked a non-profit radio math quiz. So you know, we’re gonna sing a song writer writer on dh lawyer, former engineering student i story story for you to bring your slide rule uh, i can not write. Or your engineer, you may need your engineering calculator for those. Ok. Ok. So here’s here’s the math quiz? Because tony’s been doing this show for a long time now, since since twenty ten, it’s a lot of shows that he’s very prolific. We have three hundred fifty shows, so i’d like to kind of figure out some things that some numbers that we’ve accomplished over the years. So would you say how many guests average per show phone and live in studio? Yeah. Live in studio and then plus you gotta bring in the conference guests. I mean, sometimes there’s like three and four panellists. I’d say average. Okay, average, uh, one point seven three let’s. Say two. Okay, let’s round it. So three hundred eighty shows. Two guest per show we have. Who gets it first? How many is that? I hope that i hope that some hope that seven hundred, seven hundred okay, so how many steps are there to climb up the stairs from seventy second west? Seventy second street to the studio here. Oh, you could take the staircase around here. I do it all the time. How many steps? Which is saying? Oh, sam, sam sametz again. Twenty. So twenty steps, times two hundred fifty shows is that’s. Got to be that’s. Gotta be the same. Seven thousand fifty seven thousand. Scott so you did bring a slide rule? I yes. Yes. It’s right in here. All right, all right, all right. So, tony and scott, how many times during each show would you say scott’s music is played during each show. Oh, that’s a cool oh, that’s like how many times is the number one appear on a dollar bill? One, two, three for i’d say it’s probably five. I’m thinking five so what’s time to a two hundred fifty. I don’t know the seven, seventeen, fourteen hundred plus three. Fifteen degree was kottler against that’s got with all right. All right, i swear i’m not i’m not just like peeking over the over the engineering because a ringer is i didn’t know that, it’s. All right? I don’t know. Who’s going to bring her. Okay. How many times have you taken the show on the road? Oh, my gosh! Conferences. Oh, that’s. Probably like, i’m afraid that’s an easy one. Well, ten. So let’s say eleven. So what percentage i can’t even do? The percentage of eleven of the three hundred fifty shows are were shows on the road but you cut me off the delays. I get more than one interview per unconference less now last non-profit technology cover. That was twenty, thirty two interviews in one conference. So there’s thirty two right there, right in three, two and half days. I got thirty two interviews, i’d say probably come away with twenty times eleven conferences. That will be two hundred twenty interviews out of no, that can’t be right. Two hundred twenty. That sounds too high. No that’s. Not right. What am i doing wrong? It’s probably not that high it’s probably it’s. Probably been like one hundred. Oh, those air segments that you’re messing me up. Segments two segments per show. So seven hundred segments. Two hundred let’s. Say, two hundred something two hundred twenty five of those maybe have been conferences or so two hundred out of seven hundred segments. Okay, so the last questions for may out of seven years of shows, i probably come and do it live. Maybe, like, three times a year. So i’ve been here maybe twenty one times. Uh, yeah. In the early days. Yeah. You’re blowing me off in the early days? No, i invited you all time. You never came up? No, i yeah, don’t twenty more. That sounds like a lot. And you know, the last time i was here in the studio, i left tony and i saw another man who works in broadcasting. I met someone. Really? Really. Cool. Right after i left tony show. Oh, you met lester. Lester holt? Yeah, i went down to nbc and lester home. You’ve treated me a picture. You facebook me a picture of you and lester. So today stepped down, you know, the talking alternative studios where we are live on nbc, and then i guess you could go down, continue going down on the show to last. So what are you doing in new york? I said i have clients here and stuff like this came from this non-profit radio show. Oh, and cause i realized later that lester worked in radio. So radio people like even if they end up working in tv or whatever, they still really love stick todo zoho he’s. His eyes lit up when i said, ready brady was cool. Absolutely, absolutely. All right. Thank you, everyone. Thank you for the non-profit. Your math quiz created, produced. This is what she’s, the creative producer. Well, what a surprise. No surprise. Came up with this last night.

Yeah, she lives out facebook live. All right. Um, summary of you. You got a little tidbit for us today in respect, research land. What do you see? It’s one on there? Yeah, well, you know, i thought it was just kind of focused on teamwork a little bit because, uh, sort of staying in the spirit of, you know, your three hundred fifty shows wouldn’t have happened with without a lot of teamwork there in the studio and from your regular contributors and so forth and all the conferences you’ve attended and really focusing on how important prospect researches to the development process. But that really it’s only one component of the development process on and really try to encourage folks if if you’re wearing that, that prospect research had either as a your sole function within the organization, or maybe one of the functions that you do and your everyday job to try not to work in a vacuum and to try and get a seat at the table. If you can try and see if you will be allowed to attend those development committee meetings and so forth to really play a role in the overall development cycle so that information that you’re able to glean from important conversations can be incorporated into the work that you d’oh alright, it takes a village. It takes a village, is what you’re saying. I think it takes a community text community to raise money and number, and, well, of course, non-profit radio is a part of that, but so is prospect research. All right, the team approach i love thank you for shouting out the team. We do have a great team. We do have an excellent, cool team. I shot them out of the end of every show. Claire scott, sam.

Well, one thing that i was thinking about that i will not put any any political commentary around, but i was reflecting earlier this morning about being on the show, talking about social media five years ago. And would we have ever thought five years ago that we would have politicians using the same tools that organizations are using right, like, five years ago, it was such a difference reality when it came to that, and now it’s normal, that articles would be quoting a tweet or a facebook post or facebook live stream, you know, from from d c i think it’s really interesting what that will mean going forward? Yeah, i think five years ago, politicians were just kind of figuring out whether twitter is something they should put their name on, is it? Is it safe for me to be associated with this platform now? It’s zits fundamental and you’re way behind if you’re not, you know? Yeah, i mean, we have, you know, elected officials using facebook live stream when there, you know, doing presentations on the floor, how does that change their relationship to their constituents?

Easy dankmyer off. Welcome back to the studio. Thanks so much, tony it’s great to be here. It’s a pleasure. Thank you, guys. So glad these shoes these trips work out for us. Yes. I love coming to new york city and coming to the crystal studio and being on talking alternative the crystal studio we are surrounded. We’re surrounded by crystals. Yeah, it’s a good, good, you know, energy, i agree. We got and you bring energy to you. Do you bring that radio expertise? That energy? Okay, we’re talking about donorsearch tory’s. What do you feel like non-profits or not getting quite right about when they write a donor story. Don’t testimony? Well, i’ve i’ve i’ve written many, many, many donorsearch tory’s, but i’ve read even mohr donorsearch tory’s that’s part of my job. So i’ll go on a client’s website or a potential clients website, and i start reading a donor story and typically they fall into several categories. But the worst one is is what we call gushing flackery, where you’re just like gushing over the person and you’re acting almost like their pr flack that you’re trying to promote them. It’s like two promotional and it’s about to many different things and not really about, you know why this donor cares about your cause? If we want to do this correctly, you you advise that we start with recognizing our goal for the for this piece, right? So what’s the goal of your piece? Are you trying to show that that donors are putting your charity? And there will that’s a great reason for doing a donor story? Because it’s social proof it makes it really normalizes plan giving social proof? Yeah, social proof. So you have a lovely donor-centric looting your charity in her will, and now you want to feature her. So your goal really of that is to show her in a really nice light so that she likes the story but also to normalize this concept of putting a charity and your will and encouraging other people to do it. So it’s a very simple goal. The goal isn’t about telling her life story or writing a biography about her or gushing over her to make her feel good, perhaps because my friends and fund-raising they say, well, you know, i want to make sure you know, that she looks good and, you know, make her feel good because they’re all about that, but frankly, that makes for, like, a really kind of boring, weird that’s. A poe story. Yeah, yeah. I mean, you do want them to feel good about the piece. Clearly, but that’s not your primary goal. No. Your primary goal of the donor’s story. Yes. It’s a bit about stewardship like you’re thanking the donor, my featuring them. But your primary goal is really to put a face on your philanthropy and to encourage other people to do a similar thing that this person has done precisely. Okay. I like the idea of social proof a lot more about that. What’s up. Well, social proof is just proving that something is normal. I liketo almost call it more like normalizing ilsen social proof. So if you say, you know, if you see ah, lady and you’re in your annual report and she’s, a retired teacher, and she lives, you know, in greenwich village or whatever, and you work for a big, fancy new york city charity and you feature this lady and she’s, a retired teacher and she’s normal. Then someone reading that will be like, well, gosh, that’s, that’s normal she and she went and put this charity in her will. That’s not like a strange thing, it’s not for rich people, you know, it’s, not just for, you know, big time philantech are everyday people, and you might be doing this for plan to give ah, encouragement or major gift major, it could even be i don’t know how that could be an annual e-giving e-giving unnamed naming a scholarship or something like that. So that’s a great donorsearch ori. So say your your small college and you have a nice person who has given you an outright donation maybe if a few thousand dollars, but also included the college and their will, and you’ve created a scholarship in his name. You get after his father and you write up this little story about why he cares and what he’s doing and then that’s your social proof right there, this normal person did this precisely. I mean, for trying to encourage others. It’s probably better to include someone to do this around someone who’s a modest donorsearch modest means because you’re going to appeal to a much broader spectrum, then the high net worth donor-centric purpose. Well, that’s interesting, too. About the highway high net worth donorsearch event are you? Viewed a lot of very wealthy people and it’s funny because one of the typical things they’ll say to me is they’ll say, so you’re going to write this story. So what is it going to be like? And i tell them a little bit and then they go, they kind of whispered there, go just don’t make me look rich. Yeah, because nobody wants to come across like they’re bragging about their money and the donorsearch story is something that they should feel good about sharing with someone and if it’s this like bragging story or about how these people own all these office buildings and they’re huge philanthropists, they’re not going to want to show that to their friends. Because it’s a little embarrassing for most people, there are some people who are there are some things one articular, but yeah, most people are very modest. That’s true. I agree. I’m not screwing with you, right? I can think of ah one recent ah, recently popular guy. Um all right, i’ll tell you what, why don’t we go out for our break? And when we come back, they’re not going to keep talking about the donorsearch ori and we’ve got to talk about who to select and the donor photo and she’s got tips for interviewing, so stay with us.

I feel like doing live listener love this moment. Andi were bursting, uh, let’s, start abroad. Mexico city, mexico cattle. What what is what? We’re going to start as point a star days, of course, when it started seoul, south korea, always multiple. We’ve got multiple south korea, always, always so grateful for that. Loyalty that’s the word i’m looking for on your haserot comes a ham nida for our listeners in seoul live germany, they got multiple in germany. Guten tag new delhi, india is with us checking in new delhi you’ve been with us before, i can only send you live listen love in english, i’m sorry i’m not not prepared, but don’t but come back, come back and we’ll get it okay, bring it into the u s, tampa, florida, woodbridge, new jersey, multiple new york city love it and over mass boston, mass whoa, do you know each other live listener love to all the live listeners, and they’re bursting first thing today, i got to say podcast pleasantries for the over twelve thousand listening in the time shift, whatever device, whatever time, whenever it fits your schedule, you might be listening a month later. Binge listening pleasantries toe are over twelve thousand podcast listeners so glad you’re with us and the affiliate affections last, but never least on our am and fm stations throughout the country and our new am fm outreach director. Of course, of course, betty mcardle, who will shout out at the end affections to our live two hour am and fm affiliate listeners fremery if you done facebooking now and everything when i see you with your phone, social media is very important said it well, and so is the live listen love in the podcast pleasantries in philly defections i can multi task i’ve got to send this stuff out. Um, how about through, though, to choose? How do we how do we make sure we’re getting the right donor that’s goingto give us the best story and be the most cooperative, et cetera? Well, when you’re writing a donor story typically you want to choose someone typically what fundraisers do is they want to smooth somebody, so they know i wanted i want to feature this donor mary lou she’s, great she’s this she’s got a great story and they go on and on about all this stuff, but then when i find out a little bit later is she might not be the best person, and then i’ll hear a funny thing that the the fundraiser will say, well, she’ll do it, but she just doesn’t want to use her name. What? She may not be the best thing i think we need to move on anonymous and anonymous has been very sweet to us a very thoughtful right. So it’s it’s really important to choose someone? That’s that’s, that’s really game that wants to do it, willing to use their name, they’re willing to use their name. They understand the concept of doing the donor’s story. They understand that they’re photo is going to be used to that it’s going to be connected with an ask of some sort. And in an action of some sort it’s gonna be a little bit like an advertisement, maybe and some people don’t don’t realize that they might think, oh, it’s a donor story it’s going to be a story about my family and where we come from and, you know, the real vikings and no, okay, it’s, not just a story perception. So it’s good to have to choose a donor who is basically number one like a really nice, friendly person, outgoing person or even not outgoing person who just really cares about your cause and gets what gets what you’re doing so that’s number one they should really care about the cause and really understand the whole point of of this. Donorsearch torrey and of course, yes, they wanted you want to use their name and take a photograph and all that, okay, now they’re going to have a role in the process, right? Of course they’re going to be able to review what you write typically typically sometimes they will review what you write so so the best thing for sort of the the approval process, which can things can get hung up with that so let’s say you’re in charge of of writing the story and you’ve selected this donor and asked her if she would like to participate. It’s really great if you can show her an example of a previous donor story and say it’s going to be a lot like this it’s going to be about this many words and the photo is going to be something like this and it’s going to be in this spot in the magazine and it’s going to be a lot like this, so then they understand what’s going on and also you’re going to say to them, it’s going to be very brief because that’s really the best way to kind of keep this thing from going out of control how many words? Roughly you could do a donor shoretz like seventy five words that short? No, sure. Because that’s really what it’s mostly about is a really good photograph and kind of just this little testimonial. It’s basically, the why they care. Like why they did this, why they care so much. And then it’s maybe like, you know, one or two little fact it’s a very short story. And then you need your call to action at the end. Basically. Well, not what do you want people to dio? Do you want people to do what mary did? Mary started a scholarship. Are you interested in doing that, then? You know, call contact through intact durney martignetti you mentioned a photo on your your advice is to focus on the photo. What do you have around that? I really believe it’s it’s photo it’s almost photo first story second, because too often the fur photo is just a complete afterthought and a disaster. So you have this wonderful story. And then at the last minute, thie fundraiser gets a photo from the person and it’s a little like a dime sized photograph from, like a cruise have a digital and they just sort of stick the photo and its terrible or or they just base, maybe snap a photo with their iphone of this older person just like sitting in a chair looking kind of, you know, pathetic and and it’s sad it doesn’t have to be like that. So i really encourage people to hire a professional photographer because this’s also a wonderful way to steward your donor. So maybe for one hundred dollars or one hundred fifty dollars, you can hyre ah, local photographer, and then you can go over to the person’s house or have them come over to your organization if you have something photographic like dogs or kids or something. And and, you know, take some really nice photographs of this person, and then they feel important because you’ve hired this photographer and you’re doing something quality and then after it, of course, you can also, you know, make a copy of one of the nice photos and frame it on dh send us with them and say you might you might like to have this. Thank you so much for helping us out. You know, the photograph is really, really important. And if you can’t have the have the photograph of the donor doing something that’s related to your cause old holding, one of the animals holding an animal or for furat nature organization at the very least have them standing, you know, in their yard near their favorite tree or something, and so it’s it’s you, khun stage that photo just a little bit and do something really nice. So put a lot more thought into the phone absolutely put a lot of thought into the photo, and when you’re choosing a donor, think about someone who would like to be photographed. Perhaps they’ve already been in a local newspaper about something else, and you know that about them, so they already kind of know what’s going on? Cool, not scary to them. When you’re interviewing them, you have some tips for interviews. I do have some some tip, even that we’re gonna do this let’s say, we’re going to keep this to a seventy five word, seventy five to one hundred. I’ll give you an extra twenty five words. Seventy five, two hundred words is what we want is that all the space we have? So how do we fashion our interview around that well, it’s it’s really very simple, and it almost come down to one one question, and if you ask no other questions you could kind of be done at, you know, with the one question, so let’s say, tony, you’ve been donating to this animal shelter for a very long time need a drumroll for them? Yeah, and and you’ve included the animal shelter in the will. The question would be tony, what? Why is this call is so important to you that you’ve done this wonderful thing? You’ve taken this major step of including the charity and, well, why is why is it so important to you? And should we be recording while we’re interviewing? You don’t really need to record just good notes, just good notes, because really, you’re just looking for that money quote, you’re looking for that one quote, and usually you get it right off the bat with that first question of why do you care? And ah, mistake people make is they they say, well, why do you care about the you know, riverdale animal shelter? Well, it’s not why you care about that shelter, it’s, why you care about the cause. So, it’s, why do you care about homeless man’s? Why do you care about illiteracy? Why do you care about feeding? You know, people that need, you know, a hot meal. Why do you care about homeless people? Why do you care about cancer research? Why do you care about this college? So it’s it’s? Not really. Why you care about, you know, the organization per se or your mission. It’s it’s about it’s really about the call cause you want them thinking broader, right? And you go and you’re going to get some kind of good pull, quote, this is what you’re looking for that little money quote you mentioned, right? So for instance, i interviewed a man who we featured for parkinson’s organization. So it’s not the question wasn’t well, why do you care? You know, why do you care so much about the parkinson’s foundation? It’s well, why do you care about you know, parkinson’s? And he told me the story about his mother, who had parkinson’s when he was a little boy and how, you know, her hands shook but then when she would take his hand to cross the street her hand didn’t shake and fell, and he felt safe and that’s the quote i used was something right in there about that he wanted to make sure that everyone, you know felt safe that had someone in their family with parkinson’s and just nice little quote about that. So it’s it’s really about the wide the person cares about your cause, not about the mission. So that’s really all you kind of need to ask them, and now they’ll tell you they’ll say, well, you know, years ago i was a schoolteacher and i had children who came to my class and they hadn’t had breakfast, and i really got interested in, you know, school nutrition programs, and so it goes, it goes from there, so usually they have a little story, and then once you’ve chatted for a little while, a great thing to do is at the end of your conversation is to say, is there anything else you’d like to add? Is there? Is there anything else you’d like to say? And typically the person will say no, but and then after the but you get your best quote, really? They’ll say no, but i really want people. To know that in in this town there’s a big problem with, you know, ah, litter and that’s why i really care so much about this cleanup program like they will, you will have talked to them for five minutes and more and it again. Now at the end, they will consolidate their best. They’re best quote, and i know this from working in radio for many years, being a radio reporter, so you would interview somebody, and then at the end, you’d say, is there anything you’d like to add? And they would very succinctly say everything you’ve ever talked about for the last five minutes and that’s your sound bite, okay? And it’s right at the end and it’s, easy to grab. So that’s that’s how i know that. So that’s your best sound bite, really? And usually you’re best quote comes at the end when you say anything else you’d like to add well, no, but i you know, i really want people to know x y that’s it there. You got it. Cool. Thie like, protect, protect, protect for interviewing. Well, my, you know, my profession was i was a reporter and a news writer. And and basically you’re telling stories and it’s it’s journalism so it’s just another form of journalism, and when you’re a journalist, number one is faxing your friends so it’s about facts and quotes. So when you’re writing your story, if you just stick to facts and quotes, when you go to get it approved by your boss and they want to rewrite the whole thing, you can say, well, no, actually that’s a direct quote, and i’ve had i’ve had clients, is there? Bosco well, can we have her say this instead? I said, well, no that’s what she said, she’s, the donor and that that’s what she said she likes that. So if you stick to just direct quotes from the donor and a couple of little facts like, you know, she’s named the charity in her estate plans that’s a fact, and you’re not sort of screwing that up because thie approval process things can get a little hinky. Okay, and don’t forget the approval have are writing what you have some ideas for our actually writing we talked about we talked about a brief quote. Courts are good. Yeah, what for? Writing there was sitting down and writing these hundred writing for writing, you know it’s it’s keeping it brief and also, you know, i say to write light, bright and tight and typically your readers they khun tune out at any minute so you you should ride in a one on one engaging style so it’s a very personal style it’s not like bunch of flowery language and extra words. Is that the light? That’s the light so you wantto cubine sure what’s like bright tighten your right and tight and sure so it’s it’s, it’s it’s a light story it’s. Not a heavy duty, you know, four hundred word four hundred words. You know what? You’re not writing a book about the person and again it’s. Not about like where they went to college. Unless it’s, you know, there’s a for your college. But it’s not about, you know, all these things that the person does cause i i read this all the time and the funny one that always gets me is at the beginning. It’ll say john smith is a great philanthropist in our community and a very well known, you know, person who sat on many boards and all that that’s like the first thing they tell you is it’s sort of this list of this person’s credentials and that’s not interesting to the reader, and it doesn’t make the donor look that good. They don’t want to share that with people that you’re sort of, you know, boasting about it, segregates the reader from g i’m not on all those boards, right? So i guess i can’t i can’t do what john did because he’s a well known philanthropist. Exactly. I only give a couple hundred dollars a year. So right, this doesn’t apply to me. Turn the page writer that’s for those kind of nickels. That’s for those kind of people who sit on a lot of boys is a lot of boards, right? That’s. Not nice. Okay. Like brighton tight. Yeah, like brighton type. Keep it really short. Basically it’s it’s about the why and it’s about why the person is taking this action. And then at the end, you want to make sure you have a call to action. Which is to say, you know, would you be interested in naming a scholarship here? It smith college when, you know, give us a call. So you want to you want to do that so it’s in your headline should be should be a good little headline and what i like to, i’d like to make the joke that says a donor story is not a headline there’s a lot of times i’ll see that in a in a in an annual report or or a newsletter and says donorsearch torrey, well, no, well, that’s like saying, you know, mcdonald’s is like, you know, a burger store. Thank you. So the dahna story that’s a category that’s, just something we say, like what’s our donorsearch torrey next month, but it’s not it’s, not a headline, so have a good headline and have a nice view could do a nice pull quote that you pull out and make it bigger and then looks good and then you’re called to action and those things should be, you know, bolted because that might be all the reader reads. They see the photograph, they read the headline, they see the pull quote and then they see the call to action and they might not even really read the story. But there’s still getting the message? They’re still getting the idea we’re asking about. The headline should should that focus on the donor or the reader like something like you can do this also? I mean in that category, i’m not saying that’s a headline or it doesn’t really matter how you well, a good line headline is something that grabs the person’s interest in my little i’m not a great headline writer so might cheat for a headline is like a quote from the story because it’s something the person said so it’s it’s hygienist donorsearch ori with a woman in grand rapids, michigan, for the community foundation and it was a great photograph of her, and the headline was, quote, i will oh, i will always love grand rapids because that’s, what it’s about she put grant rapids in her will and then it’s about caring about this whole city and the community that’s why people support community foundations because they really care about their community and the causes in their community. So i that kind of like my little cheat thing is to go to take a quote and make that the headline all right, now you mention the approval process a few times, so i can imagine you’re hankering to get to the approval process. Now we got our thing written. What? We’re going what’s your advice around the approval well, the approval process because this is where things get ruined. This is where things get in the edit in the edit, people, somebody. Now we got a reading by committed and e i would just keep it to few people as possible. And so my tricks for getting things approved is to just give it to, you know, my client and they give it to their boss and and i’ll say something like this is exactly eighty five words, it can’t be any longer, it has to be eighty five words, and then people are less likely to tinker with it because they can’t write it as short as i can, or a short as you can, because you’ve really given a lot of thought to this story, so the boss might try to tinker with it. But well, now it’s one hundred seventy five words and you know, it can’t be that so i had like, a strict word count and tell them that that it has to be that word count. So that’s the number one trick. And the second thing is, if you stick with quotes and facts, there’s less to tinker with, so you don’t want to start writing all this other flowery stuff. You just want to stick to stick to the facts and stick to the quote, stick to what the person said, and then it’s a lot harder to tinker with. Ok, right? And then after you’ve gone through your internal review, hopefully briefly, it goes to the subject to the r to our donor, it goes to the donor first. This is another secret about dahna for goes to the donor first, they’ve already donorsearch already approved it. They loved it. They can’t wait to see it in the newsletter, and then your boss is like, but but all the donor mow mrs smith, she just loves this so much when it be great. When it when it’s printed, we could frame it and give it to her. She loves and she loves it. I don’t think we should mess with it. She loves it. She loves it. It’s, dirty pool. I love it. Well, you have got a job, neo-sage she loves it. Touch it. We love she loves it. It’s close she’s, so proud of it she’s already sent it to her daughter. I imagine that it also rich thieves could be multi purposed, right? We can use this in some other marketsmart ocean ways, you know, once you have a great donorsearch torrey, you should use it over and over again. And when i come into an organization and we need thio ah feature a donor. Ah lot of times i’ll hear well, we already used, you know, mr jones last year, and i’m like no, but that’s a great story. We already have these great quotes from him. We have this beautiful photograph, he’ll, you know, he was cool with it, he loved to use it again. Oh, but we already used him and and i always say, well, you know, maybe people read that a year ago and hung on to every single word of it, and maybe now they’ll see him again in this different way, and they’ll just go, oh, there’s that nice guy so it’s ok, because typically people didn’t even read it the first time they’d even notice it the first time they’re not hanging onto your every word of your non-profit. Newsletters. I got news for you. Filed it. Then they’re comparing each one two that’s up to the old. Exactly. Let’s go march of twenty twelve that you guys five years ago. You believe that because that our quarterly report from five years ago. So if you already have a great donorsearch torrey, you can you can repurpose that. And sometimes it’s just pulling out a quote, taking the picture, cropping that a little bit differently and you can use it many different ways. Now you can put that on facebook or you can use it somewhere else. And a great way to repurpose a donor story is to is to flip it and turn it into a pier letter so let’s say, you know john smith, come ah it’s a long time donorsearch organization. You could craft a letter from him based on what he’s already said. And you write the letter from his voice. Two other donors like him. So let’s say he lives in a certain neighborhood and he, you know, you could craft the letter saying, like, oh, dear bob, you know, i also live in this neighborhood and i recently did a great thing i updated my will and included thie, you know, clean up the river foundation. Is that something you’d consider doing? And so that way, you already have the content. He’s already agreed to be in this newsletter or whatever, and you can show him that and say, hey, look, could we would like to send a letter from you two other people? We don’t even have to bother you again with interviewing you again because people don’t want to bother to be bothered a second time for a second interviewed you have the content you need, we gotta leave it. We’re gonna lose their way. We will reuse it, we’re gonna leave it there tomorrow you’ll find her at pg agency dot com and also at claire says that’s easy. Thank you so much, claire morrow.

Take two if you want to pitch non-profit radio, please make it about non-profits small and midsize non-profits that’s who the show is for that’s who i have in mind as i produce it each week i got a pitch like two weeks ago, and first of all, it was long the woman talked for, like, seven or eight minutes, and at the very end of that diatribe came the part about non-profits it had nothing to do with non-profits leading up to that she’s, a food blogger, and it had to do with her eight million instagram impressions and i don’t know one hundred twenty thousand facebook likes whatever, you know, i mean, the numbers were high, i don’t high numbers aren’t all story. I mean, we know true engagement is important too, but all right, so she had a lot of lofty numbers anyway, but it was all about food, and then in the end ah, and i give part of the profits too. This international food charity, which i’m not going to name. Okay, so that was an eight minute story, and i got twenty seconds of a non-profit this is non-profit radio, not food blogger, radio i mean, it’s, not the food network. So off topic, to say the least and it’s not that uncommon that i get these, you know, that this is not a non-profit relationship or shoretz minuscule like, in this case, so if you’re gonna pitch non-profit radio make it about non-profits that’s all i ask, and then we may have something to talk about. Of course, i got a video on the subject and you’ll find that at tony martignetti dot com and that is tony’s take two amy step award. You know her she’s, our social media contributor and ceo of intend the non-profit technology network. Her most recent co authored book is social change anytime everywhere about online multi-channel engagement she’s that amy sample, ward dot or ge and at amy r s ward welcome back. Any sample word? Yeah, i am happy to be back. I’m happy to have you. Thank you so much for being with us and my voice just cracked again, much like i’m twelve it’s, unbelievable. And speaking of children with the first thing we got it before we get into anything related teo non-profit technology conference or social media for your own events. The more you just run that was talking about staying on topic. Well, yeah, but you’re going to appreciate this thing because oren louis sample ward has his one year birthday next saturday, the twenty ninth. Isn’t that the case? I know i’m tracking it. Happy birthday, orin. Thanks. What are the what of the festivities around the first birthday? Um, well, i guess we are not, um not in the judgment way. Just in a personal capacity and preference way not people. Teo, create a huge party. We mostly just want to have a day where folks who haven’t met him yet get to meet him or people who have met him. Get teo hangout and friends with kids can have their kids come over and they can all play together. So mostly just having an afternoon at our house with lots of people. That’s. Wonderful on open house. Yeah, wonderful. Congratulations. Thank you. Alright. Happy for orin next saturday. Wonderful. Nasty. Don’t you feel bad about admonishing me for staying on topic? No, i knew what you were going to say. You did? I didn’t tell you. All right. All right. You know i was you know, i’m keeping track of him. We’re going to say what? When i was going to say what? What do you mean? You just said what i was going to say. Oh, okay, then. Let’s, move on. Teo. Seventeen ntcdinosaur was a smashing success with well over two thousand people there. The non-profit oh, my gosh. Yeah. I think our final count, i should go look this up before i say it on the radio. But i think our final count was, like two thousand three hundred and thirty people. Wonderful and that’s, the largest ever. Is that right? Okay, now, there’s more to the story than just how many people come. You could have a crummy conference with twenty, three hundred on everybody next year. You have know it was really, really awesome. Yeah. Tell us tons of tons of people making connection, which is ultimately what we want. You know, we can we can plan well in advance for there to be lots of sessions and, you know, lots of activities. But the reason that we planned all that so that people can find what they need, whether that somebody that they can commiserating with or somebody that they could work with or on expert to help them understand what they’re working on a vendor that has that platform they’ve been looking for, you know, whatever those connections are. So we were really, really happy that so many of those connections were happening just even right from the very beginning. And that was kind of a big theme of people’s evaluation. Feedback this year, too, was just oh, my gosh. You know, this i came thinking that i would go to some sessions and learn some things. And i had no idea that actually i would meet all these people and i would have all these ideas and come. I have all these folks that i wanted, you know, follow-up with our state connected with so that felt really, really great. Fell like a good success. Outstanding. Congratulations. Thank you. Eighteen ntcdinosaur that eighty, ninety is twenty eighteen. Is april eleven through thirteen that’ll be in new orleans. Okay, back in the central uru. Always rotate east, central and west. Right. Okay, central new orleans. Okay. Excellent, april. All right. Um, so let’s, talk about social. This is a perfect segway and a perfect you’re the perfect person to do. This because you’re our social media contributor and you hostess fact, those event every single year as and ten does let’s talk about some social you’ve got some ideas for before the event, what to be doing? Yeah, so figured since we just had the mtc and it is such a big event and as we always remind ourselves here and in ten were a technology organization, so we should be able to figure some of these things out one at a time kind of share the behind the scenes secrets and practises and things that we’ve learned from kind of integrating social media. So just just say that at the beginning, in case listeners are like, gosh, these all of these examples are about the ntc that’s intentional trying, trying to share what we dio putting on that big conference so ahead of the event, you know? And when i say ahead of the event, i mean, about a year ahead of the event, we start the planning around content and that includes social media, but as we’ve talked about before, tony, you and i, you know, social media can’t just exist a little separate thing, you know, you don’t just have your facebook plan over there by itself, you have your community engagement plan and you’re content plans and those include social media where it makes sense. So we start that planning basically as soon as this conference ended that next week, we had our debrief, which included let’s get started on you. No hear things that we learned this didn’t work on twitter or, you know, whatever so that we can start that planning while it’s still fresh on dh it’s going to take that long to plan it out anyway, and so part of what goes into that planning is what what opportunities did we notice for content that we weren’t creating at the conference, that we should think about it and kind of integrate into our plan? So we’re there folks who were tweeting from a session with how much they you know where into the topic and sharing their own examples even beyond what the presenters were sharing? Oh, that’s, awesome let’s kind of tag all those people now make a list of those folks now so that we can start engaging them ahead of time. Clearly, they got a lot out of it. Let’s, let’s engage them once registration opens, for example. So you’ll be finding those those folks who are already kind of engaged from this last conference. Sorry, what were you gonna say? Yes, so you might use them as sort of your back channels before you start or when you start promoting twenty eighteen. Is that what you mean? Well, i mean, two things one that there folks who personally did get a lot out of the conference. So even if they aren’t planning for whatever reason, budget or schedule or whatever to attend the next conference, what we’ve found is that those folks were really engaged and personally gained a lot from the previous year’s conference when registration opens are really, really open and love when we asked them to kind of use the session hashtag or the conference cash rather and kind of put out some testimonials in their own words like, what did you learn love about last year’s conference? Why should people go and people will post, you know, like a five part twitter message about why people should be going to this conference even if they’re not able to go that next year so that’s one piece is kind of making a list well, it’s fresh of who were the folks who really seemed engage, who really got a lot out of the content, they don’t have to be the people who are speakers, their sponsors are, you know, really high profile folks, they’re people that just really, genuinely got a lot out of it because they’re going to be sharing that really genuine kind of testimonial. That’s goingto connect with people who are also not speakers responses, but i just thinking about whether they should attend or not, you go excellent that’s smart, i mean, similar to what you were talking about in the first half of the show, right? Like you don’t need to profile somebody that other folks don’t feel is appear making sure that you’re connecting with those attendees who are just speaking from an attendee perspective. You know, i wasn’t speaking on the session, i haven’t been here ten years in a row, but that was my first year and it was amazing. And i want you two have that same experience and you know, they’re sharers because that’s how you flagged them because you aren’t you steal that they were using the session hashtag or the conference hashtag liberally and you found him so you know they’ll share oh, excellent. Okay, more pro tips love it. Yeah, but then the other part of kind of making that list is figuring out what what was prompting them to be doing that sharing at the conference, you know, was it just somebody who was really into a session and one of the share ideas? Or was there something going on for example? I mean, you’ve been to the conference, maybe you could help me with these examples, but for, you know, at lunchtime we have what we call birds of a feather lunchtime tables just topics on on top of tables for people to help make connections and meet folks, but then sometimes that prompts people to get really engaged on twitter because they don’t have a table, right? Like they never saw that opportunity and they never submitted a table topics, so they’re using the conference hashtag to try and attract other people who want to talk about something, okay, awesome! You know, there was a re a world thing happening in the room and they were on twitter, but so finding those other events or moments at the conference, that kind of prompted that so that we can think ahead, hey, you know, people turned to twitter to try and organize those tables. How can we plan for that ahead of time? Okay, okay, yeah, i guess maybe parochial e, but, you know, i used to pay special attention to the tweets of guests, and i’d be interviewing in the booth for non-profit reiter and and the fund that then then you know, they would treat the photos from the booth and everything like that while i was interviewing them and yeah, that’s, the stuff that i used to, i guess that was our little birds of a feather is what i was paying attention to. Yeah, another piece, um, that we’ve found kind of connecting from one year to the next is that we have at the conference a photo booth and take photos ourselves, you know, of the conference experience, but we also try and watch and kind of if it’s on twitter, for example, favorite that on twitter who confined it again are or just save the link of folks who are taking photos from the conference that a photo there is so much better than words or maybe we’re just not good at words the photos so much better at helping us kind of capture and demonstrate, especially to people who’ve never attended the ntc what it’s like? Because we like to think at least that our event is unique, and i’m sure that spokes listening think that their annual event, whether it’s a gala or a breakfast or whatever is also unique and using photos that attendees took themselves of the event is such a better kind of riel riel world view of what the experiences like. And we have found that even though there’s going to be things that are different, like what the science looks like or you know what, what the photo booth backdrop was, like, there’s going to be some of that? I guess you could call it branding that’s different year to year, but the experience we hope, is not significantly different. And so we’ve found that it doesn’t matter if one year’s photo booth photo had a robot theme and the next year had some other team and whatever but using those photos ahead of time, you know. It’s really, as soon as registration opens has helped people want to share and also has we’ve seen people what kind of share those photos or tweets that have the photo attached and say, oh, yeah, i did that, too, even though they’re not in the photo, right? So someone year the conference had a mechanical shark in our closing reception, and, you know, we posted a photo from that with somebody riding on the shark and said, no, we can’t wait to see next year, but blah registration is open, whatever, and then a bunch of people would share that i wrote on the shark to you have to go to this conference even though the shark had met him to dio really with anything tio help capture how excited they were for this community that’s cool, we’re not. We’re not jumping the shark, but definitely not jumping way to take our one break while you’re with me, so we got more to come because we’re gonna talk about what to do during the event with their social and then or after your event tons of pro tips, gosh sakes, stay with us.

All right, we’re talking about social media during beef before, during and after your events with any sample work. All right, there’s one more thing i just want to touch on pre event on that’s very just a very small thing. Amy hashtag if you see erroneous hashtags like people doing ntcdinosaur teen instead of seventeen ntc or you know some other variations of what you what is the correct hashtag? What do you what do you do with that? We’ve found that it’s just gonna happen so it’s better to plan for that and assume that people are using the wrong hashtag and the more that we can help kind of redirect people ahead of the conference, the better they are during the conference that using the right hashtag, which is less like we want everybody using our hashtag and more because that really is how people are trying to make connections and chair and post with each other, and so if they’re using the wrong hashtag, they’re not going to feel like they were making a lot of connections. So what we do is we know that just as you said, they’re going to transpose that the number. And the letter order so that’s a big one that we track and then we’re also looking for writing the whole year out. So if you if you have, ah event that uses the hashtag with the year just seventeen also search for it with twenty seventeen all of those kind of little nuances and as people are posting, you know, this b six months ahead of time as they’re posting oh, you know, are you? Hey at tony martignetti are you going? Teo ntcdinosaur teen, we see that and we reply and say, oh, we hope that you’ll both be there. Be sure and use the hashtag eighteen ntc so that other attendees can find you and i just used that phrase all the time hey love that you’re connecting our hey, thanks for promoting the conference or hey, whatever it is you’re doing that’s great! Be sure and use the hashtag and connect with everybody else and it’s just a nice way to correct somebody but also makes it clear hey, we’re only correcting you because we do want you to be able to connect outstanding, very polite and i said, yeah, i know it’s awful it’s start for that’s it you we want you to find everybody else. We want people to find you exactly. Okay, let’s move, teo during event intra intra event, if you will during our event. Now, what are your ideas? What do you got now? This, you know, there, especially for a conference like ours. You know, we’re talking about the ntc, which is twenty, three hundred people all pretty plugged in on one device or another, so the volume can just be intense. Um, and even if you have a smaller event, that doesn’t mean that the volume isn’t still a lot to try and manage. What we’ve found is that we need to have at least one staff person at all times doesn’t mean it’s the same staff person twenty four seven, but one staff person, you know, wow, while it’s normal kind of conference waking hours online to monitor things and that it’s best if that person can be, you know, maybe you have ah, on office at the event, you know, ah, room that’s, not the registration desk or the customer service desk, because otherwise they’re just going to be answering questions in person, right and feeling like i can’t i can’t monitor what’s going on online, so putting somebody in a place where they can concentrate and it’s quiet and they could just monitor what’s going on because you’re going to just have to be listening in order to figure out where there are things that we need to be, you don’t hey there’s confusion around the session room can let’s just make a post about that? Because it’s just going to be too much to try and walk the halls and figure out what to say. You really need to be listening online, okay, that sounds like a traffic control duty zoho totally that’s when it feels dual stressful because you know again, at least with ntc, that person is monitoring twitter and facebook and our conference app and our conference online forum and email, you know, there, there it really is kind of air traffic control, and then if you see something well, you’ve got your walkie and you’re walking out to other staff. Hey, can you go check the sign? People are saying on twitter that the sign is wrong? You know really does feel like you’re kind of in the master control center. How many hours of those shifts? Normally about two at a time was one. It is a lot to try and do you know that you’d definitely need a break? Yeah, yeah, like traffic control now for sure. Okay, totally. Um, you have some ideas about screenshots, screenshots, content? Yeah, we’ve found that it’s one of the easiest ways, because you may remember during your two hour shift oh, they were just so many people talking about this thing, and i said, this is so and so, you know, replied in a gm and said this and, you know, and then later that night, with all staff, when we have our daily debrief, you might say, hey, there was a big issue with this, and i know folks didn’t see it, but it was on twitter and it got results, and then you have watched so many tweets come by during the day, you can’t remember who it was that said that you can’t remember who you promised to follow up with so it’s just easier to take a quick screen shot and save that and you can have a folder on your computer whatever computer you know, you kind of monitoring from that day that is like thieves with people i’m following up or here are examples of horrible things that happened today that we need to fix or, you know, here’s an example of ah, really awesome post from a session. Whatever it is, you can just be taking quick screen shot and save it instead of trying to write down the person’s name or figure out all the details. I just saved you a lot of time and and also lets you feel like you can just stay in that channel, right? You could just keep following twitter. You don’t need to go use some other tools and try and find that spreadsheet that you’re using. You could just stay focused. All right, i got you. All right, we just have about a minute and a half left aim so let’s move to post event on about what’s your what’s, your top tip post event that if i could just say one thing that remember that even though the event is over, all of that content is still there and attendees are still engaging, so don’t just say great conference over, we’re getting on a plane goodbye. And have your your various channels that just were at such a huge high volume go quiet instantly make sure that you’ve scheduled ahead of time. Some tweets or facebook post that say, you know, thanks again for an awesome event, maybe you have a photo that you pulled out already that can go in there. Thanks so much, you know, staffer offline today taking vacation after unconference whatever it is, just make sure that there’s still some content because even though you’re a tte home asleep, your attendings are back in the office and, you know, still looking to engage. Okay? Outstanding, um, i’ll give you thirty seconds for your number to post event tip that’s all that’s all i’m giving you. Yeah, one thing that we’ve found is that right afterwards is a huge opportunity to start building up mo mentum for next year, though some of those kind of tweets they’re post that you might schedule ahead of time are things like reminder, you know? Hey, add to your calendar. This is one registration for next year opens o r be sure that you have you start thinking about your session ideas because we’re going to open. Session submissions on this date was just kind of start ng tow put out, the timeline really helps capitalize on how excited folks are and how they how great they felt so that they want to take it forward to the next year.

Can i help you? Can you help me start the show? And i’m like, sure, and so i showed him how to make, like, a clock, you know? So the u do you know, certain things that certain times and and and guest schedules and things and he’s using all that to this day, i’ve seen your many your files full of them? Absolutely dunaj job i do you and that wasn’t just a few years ago. That was actually your six years ago. Like almost to the day it was it was a was a very auspicious july day in two thousand ten, and we gotta ruth, chris steakhouse or some somewhere like that. I think it went great. Papaya, gray’s, papaya. We get a cheap, hot dog. No, it was in north korea was in care o in cary, north carolina. We did. We did to organize things that’s right? Would you, uh, why don’t you and scot chat a little bit? Because i got to get our periscope feed started. Dahna you know what? You know each other? He’s got a new album and she’s got a new website got talking about you have a new album tell us a little bit about your new new album. Sure, it’s called traveling companion on dh it’s going to be widely available next month. I’m gonna be going on tour, hitting some spots in pennsylvania, being lancaster and pittsburgh and my hometown of akron, ohio. Now we’re going to a cd release show here in the city on september twenty first rockwood music hall s oh yeah, traveling companions knew record i’m very, very excited for people to hear this the first single which i think we’re going to play later, is already out. You khun get that on band camp and get down on my website on scott at scott’s buy-in music dot com and yeah, i can’t wait for people to hear the whole thing that’s wonderful. So how long did it take you to complete this? This album we started recording back and january or february on dh. The initial plan was to knock it out in about two weeks and then slowed down a little bit and so down a little more, and what we found was, you know, what this we felt really strongly about this, this collection of songs, me and and the guys i’m working with, and we just felt like it’s worth it to take our time and get this thing right, and i’m just really glad that we did it. It was the right decision. So tell us about a couple of the other songs on the album. Um, well, i could tell you in general that i think the album touches on a number of themes, including, i think, sort of moving up and moving forward, you know, it’s a lot of recollections of things that i did maybe in my first years in new york as a twenty something and growing in to a thirty something who is now married and ah, homeowner and things that feel very adult and so that’s. So that’s, i think the theme of the record, we’re going to we’re going to a quick give away oh, great, you got the periscope feed going?

So as we figure out the studio configuration, um, yeah, exactly. Exactly. That was not cheap red wine, but that was our that was scotty with his traveling eighty eight. And maybe if you take that mic flag off, maybe it’ll work better. Um, cheap red wine just struck me as a perfect song. I just love the instrumental it’s been our theme song for probably three years now or so roughly you you hear it at the opening of every every show. We come back from commercials. Of course we close with it. And ah, scott stein is the composer and it’s all legal it’s all license and everything. This is certainly not a bootleg. Okay, scott stein, appreciate that high. Okay, you’re you’re good there. We’re going to get cool, okay? Just before we play it, tell us what’s the what’s, the story of cheap red wine, i think it’s ah, sort of. Ah, recollection of being new to new york and ah, being a musician in a neighborhood in which it was a lot of people who work in law and finance. In fact, i remember, i went to aa a dinner of some sort dinner party, and someone very new york ish came up and said, so do you work in law finance? And i said neither, and she thought, well, then, i must be a doctor, you know? And then i had to explain that i know freshly musician, doctor, doctor, lawyer or doctor. Yeah, so here i am, him shoretz places. I don’t know if we need that is unimportant. No, we’re good without okay. Ah, yeah, so that’s, what the song is about. The song goes back in number eight years, and i love this song, but, yeah, i’m so glad it has found a home here, and i appreciate you using it. All right. Here we go.

I interviewed that was, uh that was derek feldman, and he was in a cab at the lincoln tunnel when we started, which is not very close to here. That was a good ten twelve minute cab ride before he actually made it to the studio. That’s pretty far on. Guy tried to get him. I tried to get the cabby on the air, but he doesn’t have a sack guard, so he wasn’t allowed to do it right. He doesn’t sets a requirement here. No, it’s, because what?

Did i interview seth goat subpart a. Did i interview seth gordon? I don’t know, maybe did to tap dance, or or you interviewed him. I think you interviewed him. I didn’t do that interview. Seth gordon was on the show. In fact, it was our very first next-gen charity conference and was our very first remote first time we took non-profit radio remote, right? And seth cohen was one of the speakers, and it was here in the city, and i ran to an atm. I don’t member. Why? But i remember i went to an atm to get money. Yeah, why? I needed money. Why do i need money for the route as paying guests? Latto buy-in might i have a paper trail for my sag card? I guess. And when i left, seth gordon was available, so somebody else stepped in.

Really bigger than new york. I know. On people in new york, uncommonly known scottie give us fact that’s a fact that’s that is, uh, that is fact. Yes. Texas is the second most populated state after after california. Really? Yeah. Very interesting. All right, nasco you’re from midwest, you’re from ohio. I am akron, ohio. Indeed. Ok.

You wanted to see that the city of cleveland and the region come across well and i think they did. I think they did in this job. It was obviously it’s it’s always a challenge. And i think that they were think they were up to it. Ok? The fact they had a little championship parade a couple of weeks earlier. Sort of help them prepare so that’s right? See, i’m not i’m still celebrating. You are cavaliers nb a championship n ba that’s basketball that’s baseball that’s baseball, basketball basketball’s basketball.

I’ve heard of the met because my dad, we grew up in the met, so i know i know that they cause i’m nets, they definitely do field goals. They’re very good field goal. They were very good. Ditigal now they have a good free throw percentage. Sametz sametz cool. Sorry, kar exist. We should take a break and what we got coming up, we’ll wrap the break will do a giveaway. We got another giveaway coming up and ah, jean takagi is going to be on the line very soon. We got more music. We got more non-profit fact or fiction. Stay with us. Oh, okay. Sam says that we shouldn’t take a break right now. Okay, that we should do something different. All right, so in that case, we got ill. D’oh. Oh, i know what i’ll do. Okay? We should we should say that we’re grateful to the sponsors and yeah, that’s. Right. Take a minute of your, uh, carol marrow. If you’d be into this pursuing pursuing to the sponsor now they do. If fund-raising software right for non-profits like, you know, they help you stay time against goal for fund-raising managed tasks like when’s. My next phone call to this group of donors. What’s. Um, next milestone i gotta make for being on task and on goal. That’s, the plan giving agency. I mean, you do marketing communication. We do marketing communication, so we would. When i lived with a client, i would i would rely on them. And i would say, what sort of software do you have? And they might say, you know, if i’m lucky, they’ll say they have pursuing for something well, let’s look at some of the information in there and try to, you know, target some specific donors or, you know, there’s all kinds of good information that’s in there, if you know how to use it, and i think that’s important is that for company, you know, for pursuing, i’m sure they offer great customer support and trainings and things like that so you could make the most of the software that’s really, exactly in the most it’s dule, you gotta have the data, and you gotta have the marketing communications to tell those stories, right? That aaron, the data. Okay, you have to have good data in a good way to organize it, and with pursuant that that’s what they could do and, you know, get the most out your pursuit software. Don’t just learn like, the first two things like, you know, learn it all. Yeah. And there are pursuing dot com and, uh, tell you what uh little differently when i told alex career but we’re gonna bring alex career on he’s on the line because our our new this is another cool already. I divulged it earlier, but another cool announcement that we have and there’s another one coming up later too, involves california that’s all like that’s. All i am permitted to say at this time about that cool announcement, but this school announcement is that we be spelling is a brand new sponsor of non-profit radio. We’ll be spelling and alex greer, ceo is on the line. Alex welcome. Thank you, tony. How you doing? We’re doing great. Welcome. Thank you for being a sponsor. Thank you for having me on. Congratulations on the three hundred show, it’s. Very tough. Cool. Now we we’d be. We’d be spelling these air. Not your grandmother’s spelling bees, right? They’re not your grandmother’s spelling bees. They’re not your elementary school spelling bees. We had no idea two a kind of nostalgia that we all have of spelling bees. But combine it with some stuff that we love to do when we go out in new york city. Like like music like comedy, music, dance, write music, dance around, meet up with some new friends. Have a couple of drinks and play a really silly game, okay? And we make money for charities at the same time. We sure did. Right? We have. Ah, great. Yeah, we have a great fund-raising platform. The idea here was to create a ticket price that young people could afford so that they could come and join these events. It’s not a five hundred dollars gala it’s usually a twenty five dollars ticket to come in, but then we turned all the spellers into peer-to-peer fundraisers. So essentially, if you were running a marathon or five pay for charity, these people will participate in this killing me, okay? They’ll reach out to their network and say, hey, and you and get up on stage and might embarrass myself, but i’m doing provoc oppcoll right. And so this makes perfect sense for the small and midsize non-profits that are non-profit radio listeners? Absolutely. Yeah, we’ve had a lot of success with a mid sized non-profits engaging younger people and really activating their crew to come out, learn about the non-profit and have a great time while they’re doing it cool. Well, alex, i want to thank you very much for for being a sponsor of non-profit radio. Thank you. That’s. Really cool that that’s my pleasure and got loved the music. We should connect.

Case anybody live tweets besides susan she’s out there tweeting this show and but then there’s, you know, there’s, the behind the scenes guy mark silverman on, of course. There’s family what’s it. The board he’s credited every show. I’m staring at him at him and taking him for granted every single week. I’m doing it right this second. But he’s the one producing he’s, the one managing the live stream that’s. Why he’s managing the stream and a right to ask him to watch the sea. You telling me who’s listening live so i could do live listener love plus he’s watching the hash tag plus he’s watching the conference line pushes, watching the board pushes.

And of course, the team includes our three contributors who are calling in maria and gene and amy, you know, they just they take time to prepare this show mean, every month they come up with a topic, they come up with conversation around the topic, and they take the time to think about these things, and then they take the time to call it.
