We met some new friends who attended our free Spectrum Signature Seminar, "Fall Harvest: Reaping the Benefits of Increased Fundraising ROI" on October 16, 2013.
Last week Spectrum Printing Company hosted a special presentation by HP Marketing ROI Expert, Ron Sarne, from San Francisco for local Tucson non-profits, schools, and development directors. Presentation topics focused on increasing response rates, increasing donor amounts, re-engaging former donors, and sparking important emotional connections through the use of personalization with variable content data for annual appeals and capital campaigns.
Specific variable data printing strategies, successful case studies, and product samples were featured based on these essential concepts:
