The Cannabis Industry and Public Media Underwriting

There have been significant changes in state laws over the past few years that regulate the sale of marijuana, but that hasn't made the question of whether or not to accept underwriting from dispensaries any less thorny. The conflict between state and federal law still exists, and there may be additional considerations given the current administration’s approach to marijuana prosecutions. And what about businesses or products relating to the cannabis industry that aren’t directly engaged in the sale or distribution of marijuana (think hemp or CBD oil, for example)? Join Garvey Schubert Barer attorneys Brad Deutsch and Aaron Edelman for a primer on all things cannabis and public media underwriting.

  • Converting the Converted: Strategies for Upgrading Sustainers Recorded: Nov 13 2019 58 mins
    Brandon Hemel, Senior Director, Data Strategy and Management, and Eric Rubin, Director, West Coast, Engaging Net
    When a new donor joins with a one-time gift, you have a tremendous opportunity to grow the new connection into a deep relationship with your organization. Simple strategies to convert donors to sustainers, cultivate sustainers for an upgrade, and move sustainers towards stable payment like EFT/ACH are the best ways to start.

    This webinar will focus on these very strategies, as applied by WETA and other stations. We’ll examine WETA’s Make the Switch campaign, which used cross-channel promotion with on-air spots to switch sustainers to EFT/ACH. You’ll walk away with concrete steps to implement the same tactics in your membership program.

  • The New Adult: How Will Gen Z Impact Public Media? Recorded: Oct 7 2019 63 mins
    Kerry Edelstein and Tracey Castle of Research Narrative
    For many years, audience research has focused on how to engage the Millennial generation. But when a newly minted college graduate walks across the stage in 2019, he or she won't be a Millennial. That individual is a member of Gen Z. This PMDMC encore webinar will share insights on Gen Z, discuss implications for public media, and facilitate discussions to prepare stations for the incoming generation of adults. Attendees will leave armed with tangible steps to thoughtfully engage Gen Z audiences.
  • Credit Copy Workshop Recorded: Oct 1 2019 76 mins
    Presented by Gordon Bayliss, Greater Public corporate support advisor
    Credit copy compliance is the number-one question sales reps and managers ask Greater Public corporate support advisors. There's a good reason; there's much at stake. First, you need to feel confident about your compliance with federal law. You also want to satisfy your client with creative and original ideas. And, you have to keep your air sounding uncluttered, intelligent, and respectful. All in all, credit copy needs to do quite a lot!

    In this webinar, Gordon Bayliss, Greater Public corporate support advisor and copy guru, will zip through copy examples to determine their legality, and, if they aren’t, he will share how to make them compliant.

You’ll learn where your practices fall compared with national trends and you’ll identify opportunities for growth and improvement in your own digital fundraising program.

  • Get Reenergized About On-Air Drives Recorded: Sep 16 2019 58 mins
    Jay Clayton Greater Public Individual Giving Advisor, and Molly Davis, Assistant General Manager, WFDD
    On-air fundraising fatigue can happen to your listeners and to you and your colleagues. To deal with the fatigue, stations sometimes shorten or eliminate drives, but this isn't always best for your station's financial health. On-air drives are the foundation of public radio's membership programs and the biggest source of new givers. As you prepare for your fall drive, join us for a game-changing conversation about how to rethink on-air fundraising. This PMDMC 2019 encore presentation will give you simple ideas to leave you feeling inspired and empowered to turn more listeners into givers.
  • Packaging Your Budget into Major Donor Offers Recorded: Sep 10 2019 59 mins
    Richard Perry, Founding Partner of Veritus Group and David Heck, Director of Philanthropy of WHYY in Philadelphia
    One of the major reasons major gift officers in public media do not secure large gifts is because they have very little to present to donors. This webinar addresses that problem/opportunity.

Richard Perry, founding partner of Veritus Group and strategic partner with Greater Public in the Transformational Major Giving Pilot, will offer details on how to transform your content budget into compelling offers your major donors will support.

    In addition, David Heck, Director of Philanthropy of WHYY in Philadelphia, will show you how he has begun to implement this program for his station. He will give you important and practical information on how to do it.

    Having good donor offers is one of the most important strategic elements for successful major gift fundraising. Schedule yourself for this session and learn how to do it.

  • A Guide to the Podcasting Sales Landscape Recorded: Apr 9 2019 49 mins
    Bryan Moffett, COO, National Public Media
    As podcasting continues its explosive growth – from consolidation and investment at a national level, to new audience highs – it can be hard to keep up with the daily industry updates, not to mention the corresponding marketing and sponsorship trends.


    Whether you are already successfully selling your station’s podcast(s), or perhaps just beginning to think about monetization, it’s important to understand the evolving landscape and where public media falls within it, in order to articulate the unique value your station’s podcast inventory offers to your clients and prospects.

    In this special 30-minute webinar, National Public Media COO Bryan Moffett helps us make sense of the current national podcast sales landscape, setting the stage for continued discussions and station success sharing at the PMDMC this July.

    Presented by Kelly Riutta, Interim Director of Prospect Development, University of Washington

    In this session you will learn the basics of what prospect research is and how you can use available data and modeling tools to reach the most promising potential major donors.

    We’ll also discuss how to turn data on donors into a strategy for solicitations.
  • Breaking Down Barriers Organizationally With an Audience-Centric Approach Recorded: Dec 13 2018 45 mins
    Karine Bailly, Associate Director, Strategy at Atlantic 57
    We're all familiar with the unnecessary divides created between departments within our stations. The best organizations manage to escape their silos and transactional thinking and, instead, empower their talent across teams, generations, and mindsets to get work done with an audience-first mindset.

    Karine Bailly from Atlantic 57 will lead this important conversation about working together organization-wide. She'll unpack models for collaboration at The Atlantic and other leading organizations and offer insight on how to build capacity, define processes, and create workflows that unite the entire team and place audiences at the heart of your work.

Get ahold of the data showing that underwriting on public radio is better for a client's bottom line, driving purchase and other consumer behavior better than does advertising on competing media
