DMAW Annual Business Meeting and Keynote

Join us at the DMAW Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 24 for How to Hack the Brains of Donors, Members and Other Humans presented by Nancy Harhut, Online Marketing Institute Top 40 Digital Strategist, Social Top 50 Email Marketing Leader.

You know what you want your targets to do. You give them all the best reasons to do it. And still they don’t always respond they way you’d like. But what if there were an easy way to change that?

Advances in neuroscience have uncovered the secrets to prompting people to take the actions we marketers want them to.  We simply need to craft our messages to appeal to the human brain, and the hardwired way it makes decisions.

When we do, we dramatically increase the likelihood people will read and respond to our campaigns.

In this fast-paced, example jammed keynote, discover actionable tips to make your fundraising and integrated marketing messages more effective. And see how you can start raising money, membership and key metrics right away.


  • Find out why our marketing messages often get ignored or rejected by the human brain
  • Discover easy ways to make hardwired human behaviors work in your favor
  • See numerous examples of creative — both nonprofit and for profit — that trigger automatic responses, prompting people to act with little to no thought

Please join us for the reception immediately following our presentations. Connect with colleagues, meet the 2019 DMAW Board Members and enjoy our tasty food and drinks!
