Mail Like a Pro: Avoid These 5 Costly Mistakes

Presented by Laura Ingalls and Brianna Klink, Co-Owners of Abeja Solutions

Direct mail is a powerful tool to raise money. But it can be hard for a small team to manage all the moving parts, especially in an election year. This session will:

  • Examine focus areas that can boost your ROI
  • Uncover inefficiencies that cost you money
  • Show good and not-so-good examples
  • Help you time your year-end campaign
  • Provide free tools from Abeja’s new book

Laura loves crafting stories that help nonprofits create healthier, more stable funding for their missions. As a professional communicator for 25+ years, she’s written and led teams for brands such as CNN International, Save the Children, World Learning, and PetSmart Charities.

Much of Laura’s nonprofit career has been in the international development sector. She taught basic skills to young journalists in Iraq, field produced a documentary about Kosovo’s judicial system, and trained civil society groups in Nigeria. Closer to home, she served for years on the board of Little Lights Urban Ministries in Washington, DC.

Laura has a master’s degree in integrated marketing communications from West Virginia University and a bachelor’s in journalism from the University of Arizona.

She consumes too much coffee and not enough history, sci-fi and superhero stories. Laura lives in Phoenix with her husband, adopted whippet mix, and two TNR cats.
