You Don’t Have to Learn Armenian to “Get” Planned Giving

Your prospects should not have to learn another language to “get” planned giving. In a world where your average prospect is inundated with over 3500 marketing messages a day, the secret to getting your message heard is to make it simple. Don’t just simplify. Oversimplify. Viken will show you how to talk with your prospects about planned gifts in simple, everyday language. He’ll showcase real-world examples and give punchy phrases and elevator pitches you can start using right away. He’ll tell you which simple gifts to pursue first and how to start talking with donors.
