WEBINARS OF THE MONTH WEBINARS OF THE MONTH

WEBINAR: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 11:00 A.M., PST

Are You Sending the Right Message?

PRESENTER
Robert Friend


Sending timely, targeted, on-point messages to distinct audience segments is vital to your success, yet this can be challenging to teams that are already overloaded with tasks and projects – especially if they don't have strong profiling across data silos. The consequence is often one-size-fits-no-one communication and poor results, as audiences instead get scooped up by sports, streaming services, or high-budget acts.

This session breaks down how data and tools can increase your sales by making customers feel seen and appreciated when they receive the right message at the right time in the right way. You'll leave with ideas on where to start, how to run multi-channel communications, and how to tweak messages to trigger much stronger responses from your audiences.

 


WEBINAR: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 11:00 A.M., PST

X Marks the Spot: Why Generation X is Your Last Best Hope

PRESENTER
Paul Miller


Sandwiched between Baby Boomers and Millennials, people born between 1965 and 1980 are finally in the sweetspot for arts and culture organizations. These 42 to 57 year olds have finally reached the age at which they will soon become the largest segment of your audience. And while they may be a smaller group than the ones surrounding them, without their support, the organization you have now will not survive. And if that's not a big enough challenge, listen to this: they've been ignored for their entire lives and they're not happy.

NeverDark’s Paul Miller will give you recent demographic and psychographic data about Gen X and share ways to use that information to execute strategies that help make up for lost time and begin to build meaningful relationships. You'll leave having a better understanding of who this audience is, how to get them to engage with your organization, and why they're so vital to your financial and artistic future.

TESTIMONIALSTESTIMONIALS

Elizabeth Bracey

"I am writing to let you know how grateful we are for the work you have put into the New Ways Forward program of webinars and roundtables. We have benefited from these programs so much, learning new approaches and ideas as well as checking in to make sure we are on the right track.

We have attended many of the webinars and participated in a few roundtables. Each one is professionally presented and I am taking away something practical and useful from each one that I attend. They have been energizing for me and for my staff and we are finding ways to apply much of the content immediately. Sometimes we are simply getting confirmation that we are doing the right things as we navigate this new “normal” in the Arts world.

I have also participated in a one-on-one with an Arts Ally, choosing to have a social media audit. The feedback was very helpful and personal to us and we got tools to use right away to make improvements. The feedback was empowering and encouraging – just what we need right now.

Thanks for all you do and keep it up! It IS making a difference!"

The Wallace Foundation seeks to improve education and enrichment for disadvantaged children and foster the vitality of arts for everyone. The foundation has an unusual approach: funding efforts to test innovative ideas for solving important public problems, conducting research to find out what works and what doesn’t and to fill key knowledge gaps – and then communicating the results to help others. Wallace, which works nationally, has five major initiatives under way:
  • School leadership: Strengthening education leadership to improve student achievement.
  • Afterschool: Helping selected cities make good afterschool programs available to many more children.
  • Building audiences for the arts: Enabling arts organizations to bring the arts to a broader and more diverse group of people.
  • Arts education: Expanding arts learning opportunities for children and teens.
  • Summer and expanded learning: Better understanding the impact of high-quality summer learning programs on disadvantaged children, and enriching and expanding the school day in ways that benefit students.
