Feeling rejected can be debilitating and feed into not wanting to take any similar risk again. This stifling feeling wears on nonprofit staff everywhere when contacting potential donors.

A well thought out strategy can, at first, help alleviate the fear and eventually make you feel like a superhero. Research potential donors through multiple sources to get an understanding of what makes them tick. Practice your pitch in-front of the mirror, family, and coworkers until you work out your body language and know your talking points forward and backward.

Make sure the pitch has personability and authenticity. Connect with donors through personal stories. But, don't lose your overall direction of conversation; you need to be specific with the point your are trying to get across and convey urgency. Engage with potential donor by making sure to ask them questions and have them involved with the conversation.

In the end, whether or not a donation was made, send a thank you note. It gives the message that you appreciate their time spent hearing you out as well as making you stand out from the crowd. For a much more detailed post, take a look at our 12 Tips for Anxiety Free Donation Requests post on the
Ultimate Donations blog.

This week's Ultimate Donations blog post has two free online auction platforms to check out by following the link above.

Free publicity is a wonderful thing for any organization, but especially 501©(3)'s with limited budgets.

Start by figuring out the interests of your community. One way to do this is to see what your local new stations cover on a regular basis.

Networking will get you further than you would have ever believed. Talk with everyone that your know about if they have any contacts with people in the media.

Send out press releases before and after events. Interviews can be made with TV news as well as radio stations. The morning programs are usually heard or seen by a lot of people.

One of the most important things is being courteous. The media outlets that you are in contact with consider their time valuable, so should you. Finally, always follow-up and send thank-you's. You will be surprised what "thank you" will achieve.

Check out the link above for the Ultimate Donations blog and the full article on getting free publicity for the media. Leave comments with questions or if you have topics you would like to see written about.
