Katya Andresen, a veteran marketer and nonprofit professional, demystifies winning marketing campaigns by reducing them to ten essential rules and provides entertaining examples and simple steps for applying the rules ethically and effectively to good causes of all kinds. The Robin Hood rules steal from the winning formulas for selling socks, cigarettes, and even mattresses, with good advice for appealing to your audiences' values, not your own; developing a strong, competitive stance; and injecting into every message four key elements that compel people to take notice. Andresen, who is a former journalist, also reveals the best route to courting her former colleagues in the media and getting your message into their reporting.
Whether you have a big marketing budget or none at all, Robin Hood Marketing will help send your message straight as an arrow into people's hearts and minds. They'll be convinced to actand your cause will be poised for unprecedented success.
