Charity work-shock advertising

charity work shock advertising special research report Photo by
Why do we see so many not-for-profit organisations use shock advertising to get their message across? Is it that they want to make us as passionate as they are about their cause? Is it that they feel we are not paying attention to  (insert cause here)? Is it because they feel shock advertising draws attention to the issue and helps donation drives? People who run philanthropic organisations are passionate. More passionate than most. When we work on pro-bono projects we always hear the tearful story upfront. Sometimes, if the issue really touches us, we cannot help but get pulled in. When we do, we run the risk of taking up a ...

The Role of Guerrilla Marketing in Nonprofit Fundraising by Good ...
“Guerrilla marketing” is an increasingly potent force in nonprofit internet strategy.  First coined by Jay Conrad Levinson in a 1983 book of the same name, the term describes a system of marketing which uses effort and ingenuity, in lieu of money, to get a message across.  Thanks to its unorthodox methods and aided in large part by YouTube and other free video hosting sites, the phrase has become a bona fide marketing term.  Common trademarks of guerrilla marketing include viewer interaction, the element of surprise and precision timing. One popular example of guerrilla marketing is the flash mob.  A group of people ... market research, surveys and trends


Charities brought in $303.75 billion for 2009 - The NonProfit ...
Giving to charity in the United States dropped a little more than 3 percent during 2009 to $303.75 billion, a decline but not the precipitous plummet feared by nonprofits as the U.S. recession was in full bloom. As usual, donations by individuals led giving, with gifts to religion being the top category. It's only the second year that total giving has not increased in current dollars since Giving USA started calculating the beneficence of Americans in 1956. The other incidence was 1987. And, it was not as severe as the inflation-adjusted giving of 1974, which dropped 5.5 percent. Giving USA , a publication of Giving USA ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Apple iAd Platform's Entry Fee Reported to Be $1 Million (Updated ...
Steve Jobs unveiled iAd earlier this month, and the ad network is expected to roll out to iPhone OS apps in the next few months (AP Photo). Apple’s iAd platform holds lots of promise for advertisers, considering how much people use their iPads, iPhones and iPods. But buying into this game won’t be cheap. The company plans to charge each advertiser a minimum of $1 million when the platform rolls out in the next few month — between five and 10 times what competing ad networks charge, according to the Wall Street Journal . And if they want to be included when iAd launches, they’ll need to spend nearly $10 ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Exclusive: Andy Burnham supports gay marriage but won't change mind on lesbian IVF
Andy Burnham is half an hour late for our interview but is pleasingly apologetic when he finally greets me at the entrance to Portcullis House. Currently third among the Labour leadership contenders, behind David Miliband and Ed Miliband, he has rejected the proposed two-week campaign break put forward by David Miliband and will be back on the battlebus after taking his family for a few days' break in Scotland. The shadow health secretary admits the campaign is tiring but appears to be enjoying the fight. The least well-known of the five contenders, he is positioning himself as the working class boy who will listen to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Boutiques v Network
Marketers appear to be as torn as a teenager in love when it comes to choosing between using a boutique agency or a global network – their hearts tell them to go with the creative ideas that spring from the fresh minds of an independent agency, but their heads tell them that large networks can give them the scale and cost efficiency that the boutiques simply can’t. The Help Agency: Co-founder Hugh Dennis aims to offers a remuneration model that will motivate all parties to work with each other While cost and scale might rule a marketer’s head, there is still the romantic notion that boutiques offer one-off quirky creative ideas ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Navigating the Potential Risks and Rewards of Celebrity ...
When shock-jock Don Imus, best known for berating political figures and celebrities, characterized Rutgers University’s women’s basketball players as “nappy headed ho’s,” the talk radio host crossed a line of political correctness that no public relations spin could nullify. In the weeks that followed, Imus battled to save his job. His supporters chatted up his significant charity work, and Imus made a face-to-face apology to the Rutgers’ team. But Imus’ ship was sinking. In order to save their brands from being tarnished via association, advertisers like AT&T, Sprint Nextel, American Express and Procter & Gamble, pulled their ...

What's your secret plan for global (directory) domination?
Massive attack of multiple vertically integrated (sometimes referred to as 'niche') directories. Full scale integration with reckless disregard for SE issues relating to interlinking. Cornered the market on all the good directory domains awhile back, so can't do much about that. Either they work or don't. C'est la vie. I think that about covers it for moi. Did I forget anything? So, having said that, I've got to ask: What's your secret plan for global directory domination? No holding back. We've all likely gotten it pretty well figured out anyway, so . . . lights down, spotlight up, ...
