Presented by Ephraim Gopin

Over the last 20 years, Ephraim Gopin has seen the good, the bad and the ugly. There is much to be learned from marketing campaigns that performed flawlessly and those that were a big dud or even worse, caused massive backlash. These lessons can help nonprofits improve their fundraising, content and digital marketing, copywriting and communications.

The presentation will look at mistakes- and some successful examples- from various nonprofit and business marketing campaigns. The presentation is a mix of the good and the bad, a chance to learn but also a chance to laugh. Laughter is not only the best therapy but it’s a wonderful educational tool. You’ll cringe, you’ll smile, you’ll shake your head in disapproval but most importantly, you’ll go back to the office with a bunch of simple tricks to use as you engage and interact with donors, followers, volunteers and your organization’s cheerleaders.
