Integrated Impact: An Innovative, Cost-Efficient Plan to Multi-Program Marketing

Your organization offers multiple programs that make a real impact — awesome! Now, how do you market those initiatives in tandem? If these are some of the questions your organization has been asking…

  • How do we market and cross-promote multiple programs in a budget-efficient way? 
  • How do we create and maintain a singular voice while talking to different people with different needs about our different program offers? 
  • How do we get internal buy-in to use this approach?

…this session will answer them all! 

In this candid “behind-the-scenes-exclusive” session, we’ll share how we piloted a novel approach to create a cost-effective marketing program that successfully presented multiple offers to an audience whose needs are varied and layered. 

Our session will then shift to helping participants learn how to implement this approach themselves. Through a series of practical exercises, participants will leave with the knowledge to create an integrated, budget-conscious marketing plan that reaches their diverse audience the second they leave NTC. Finally, we’ll share ways to help participants introduce this methodology deeply and durably into their organizations’ approach to marketing.

Key takeaways include:

  • How to build an advertising framework for multiple program offerings to diverse audiences
  • How to find content that resonates with a more diverse and broader audience 
  • How to achieve durable and lasting internal adoption of a synergistic marketing plan
