Straight Marketing is delighted to have been invited to be a workshop host at South West Forum’s Funding Expo South West, which is being held on Wednesday, 27 November 2013 at the Imperial Hotel, Torquay.
This is a major South West event aimed at helping charities and other voluntary and community sector organisations to raise funds efficiently and effectively. The event will bring together up to 200 delegates with exhibitors from trusts, foundations and other funders, along with investors and support and service providers.
The expo, “Funding for Unpopular Causes”, will be geared specifically to the needs of organisations working with the most disadvantaged and excluded groups (e.g. offenders, victims of abuse, LGBT communities, asylum seekers) as these groups can find it especially difficult to raise funds because their causes generally don’t have widespread public or political support.
Alison Jobson of Straight Marketing will present a workshop titled: “Marketing your Cause: How you can apply marketing insights from business to attract new supporters and increase income”. Specifically, she will cover:
– How to communicate your message effectively and engage supporters
– Low-cost marketing methods to increase awareness of your work
– How to keep supporters engaged
Straight Marketing will also be exhibiting at the expo and be available throughout the day to assist delegates with their marketing queries.
