The success of your online outreach hinges on your understanding of the inner workings of the human mind.

Takeaways:
1. How to engage the emotional and rational minds at the same time.
2. Common mistakes fundraisers make and how to avoid them.
3. Practical tools for building persuasive campaigns that stick.

The panel was lead by Katya Andresen (Network for Good powered by Groundspring), Alia McKee (Sea Change Strategies), and Mark Rovner (Sea Change Strategies). You can get session notes at:http://j.mp/dmraXG
