It doesn't need to be said, because that is a fact we all know and understand. However, the types of partnerships that we embrace - from a marketing perspective - will either help us drive leads into our sales funnels or diminish the value of our brand altogether.

045 | Launching The SoVerve Gives Program, Nationwide
"No one is useless in this world that lightens the burdens of others." - Charles Dickens I am so excited to announce that The SoVerve Gives Program, which we launched earlier this year, will be opening it's doors to nonprofits nationwide starting January 15, 2019. During these past two years in business, we've had the honor of working with some incredible clients and have delivered to them some equally unbelievable results. We've done this through our unique approach to customer-centric, data-driven marketing. There is just something about #TheSoVerveWay that is rooted in service, and our community knows it! The SoVerve Gives Program was designed with the same approach - to be able to bring these same concepts to US-based 501c3's. Our goal with this program has been simple: to make sure that qualifying, nonprofit organizations receive the highest quality of marketing advice, strategies, and training at no cost when they need it most. Until now, we have only been working with Florida-based nonprofits, for case study and testing purposes. Now, we're ready to open the program up to all, and it is my goal to help 12 nonprofits in 2019, with digital marketing strategies.
