INTRODUCTIONS (9:15 – 9:30)
I. MEANINGFUL MARKETING: THE NEW HEART OF CORPORATE/NON-PROFIT PARTNERSHIPS (9:30-10:30AM)
Marketers have a new view of the role of nonprofit partnerships, a shift that IEG has named Meaningful Marketing. This presentation will explore the objectives associated with aligning with charities and cause-related organizations in the most efficient and effective way. Corporations are seeking to integrate their efforts behind a singular and truly meaningful idea that can achieve economies of scale and generate significant impact. Equipped with that big idea, they then need to identify the cause or causes that can deliver the brand value and marketing assets needed to live up to the idea's promise, spread its message and achieve the desired results. ConAgra, a longtime leader in incorporating cause initiatives into its marketing partnerships, will share how it takes a "No Lecturing" approach to cause marketing, focusing on hopeful messaging instead.
