Upgrade Your Sales aka Fundraising Skills This Year: Read Dan Pink's New Book!

The first marketing book up for me in 2013 is To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others by Daniel Pink.

Pink is a great writer and thinker.  Maybe you have already experienced his genius in Drive or A Whole New Mind?

I'm interested in learning more about how we can get better at influencing vs. pitching donors and making them feel passionate about our causes.

To learn more about the book, watch the trailer above or download the introduction by subscribing to his e-newsletter via his site.

Here's to honing our sales and fundraising skills this year in order to keep the donors we already have and bring new ones into the family!

We just rolled out our Free Charity Auction service. It builds bridges between nonprofits and online marketers. If you know a worthy cause that needs to raise money this is designed to help.
When you get a minute I would love to share it with you.

What makes it truly different is:
No out of pocket costs for the nonprofit, no setup fees or maintenance fees.
Online marketers can donate goods or services, it costs nothing for them to donate.
Once item is sold the business gets a dedicated "Thank You" page from the charity with a link to the business website.
Since it is a dedicated auction, the nonprofit can email all participants anytime they want (built in)
The site is customized to match the nonprofit website and no other cause
The Charity makes money
You can find out more details about the service at
