Increase ROI through more effective brand marketing According to CMO.com, we are exposed to more than 5,000 brand messages each day. Marketers call this “creating engagement," and each comment, share, or re-tweet is supposed to be a win. But is this deluge of content really working to shift perception, change behavior, or sell products? The truth is, only 5% of people say that social media has a profound effect on their purchasing decisions. Moreover, only 2.7% of people are willing to stick their neck out on the line to recommend your brand via social media, a factor known as “social risk.” In SPIKE Your Brand ROI, public relations maven Adele Cehrs shares her strategy for effective engagement: it’s all about timing. This book will teach you how to recognize, anticipate, or even create a SPIKE – a Sudden Point of Interest that Kick-starts Exposure. This is your opportunity to reach people when they are primed to hear your message, and your brand is most relevant to their lives. Based on the author′s actual engagements with clients like Yum Brands, Lockheed Martin, DuPont, and more, this practical guide outlines a new, pragmatic approach that will enable you to: Learn to recognize brand patterns that are driven by audience interests and outside events Focus your energy, resources, and money when your brand is top-of-mind Decrease your marketing spend while increasing your bottom-line benefits Maximize benefits or mitigate damage by anticipating when your company, association, or nonprofit is going to be in the spotlight Retool traditional word-of-mouth initiatives for optimum results With Adele Cehrs' proven methodology, you can turn a SPIKE into a strategic platform from which to improve results, build respect, and boost your ROI.

"Anybody who manages or sits on the board of a nonprofit organization will find great insight in this book on the four pillars of leadership. " John McIlquham, President, NPT Publishing Group, Inc. Does your nonprofit organization suffer from a non-profit mentality? Are you too preoccupied with daily challenges to focus on your mission, build your vision, nurture relationships with constituents, and last but not least create a positive operating margin? Dennis C. Miller has solutions for nonprofit organizations that know they must up their game in a world where they are competing with profit-driven institutions for limited talent and resources. Miller brings the nonprofit sector squarely into the 21st century and points the way forward, showing those who run or work for nonprofits: Why much more emphasis should be placed on training and on rewarding high performing employees. How all nonprofits must periodically reevaluate their mission to see if it is ambitious enough or perhaps too ambitious. Why measuring and then communicating success can enhance fundraising. How establishing your brand is as crucial for nonprofits as it is for the Fortune 500. Why you must think of your organization as if it had a stock price that can rise or fall. Often, people dont realize the potential for taking their nonprofit organization to new heights. But by the end of reading Millers guide they will learn to soar. They will be able to create a more positive image and a greater demand for their services, have more people wanting to become employees, board members and volunteers, achieve recognition for excellence in their field, and see an increase in donors and dollars.
