Webinar Series: Measuring Impact – September 24 at 1 p.m. ET

Nonprofits all too often hear the word measurement and immediately look at how many people are visiting their website, number of Facebook fans and the size of their e-newsletter and press release distribution lists. But are these numbers tied to specific objectives? For example, if you send a report to the thousands of people on your distribution list, what is supposed to happen next? Do you know what success looks like and if your return on investment warrants the amount of time and money you spent writing the report? Join Spitfire’s Adam Rankin, as he discusses strategies for evaluating organizational efforts and questions to consider while working through the communication planning process.

Our popular monthly Webinar Series features the same expert trainers that lead our in-person trainings all over the world. Interested, but unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict? No problem. All of our webinars are recorded and participants receive copies of the training handouts afterwards.

Spitfire offers discounted packages to organizations that send multiple staff members to a webinar or to participants who wish to attend multiple webinars throughout the year.
