Do you communicate to everyone in your database the same way? You can't craft a compelling message or story if you don't know who you're talking to. Effective storytelling starts with matching your message to your audience. When we don't segment our messaging, we set ourselves up for failure. In this presentation, Steven Shattuck - Chief Engagement Officer at Bloomerang - will share some of his favorite strategies for segmenting your donors and other constituents in your database.
