$99 OVERVIEW webinar on Monday, July 28: seats still available
$449 webinars w/ personal coaching SOLD OUT

Debut of new webinar + coaching session
How to Write a Fabulous Case for Support
Having an appealing story to tell (and sell) gives nonprofits a sharp fundraising edge.

Tom Ahern's new "How To Write a Great Case" webinar on Kivi's Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com offers 2 ways to learn: there's a $99 in-depth overview of the elements of an appealing and effective case ... and a $449 advanced class that includes a second, skills-focused webinar as well as personal coaching. That advanced class has limited capacity, just 20 seats. THEY ALL SOLD OUT, first time out! Nearly one hundred sites watched and asked questions during the $99 overview webinar.

Next up in the Kivi series is Writing Direct Mail Letters, beginning July 30. Students who take all four courses in the full series graduate from Ahern Academy and can officially say in their work history, "Trained by Tom Ahern."

Ahern blows promo
"It's all outtakes from here, buster."

And yet YouTube allows it to be seen. Hint: I never had a stutter before this video, created to explain the difference between my $99 webinar and my $449 webinar at Nonprofit Marketing.
