Reflect: Approximately 1.2 million organizations are registered with the IRS as nonprofit organizations. It is estimated that millions more small formal and informal associations exist that do not register with the IRS because they have revenues of less than $5,000 per year. Nonprofit organizations in America have combined revenues of approximately $621.4 billion, which represents 6.2% of the nation’s economy (Luckert, n.d.).  Congress developed the Top Tier Evidence standards for nonprofit organizations, defined as: Interventions shown in well-designed and implemented randomized controlled trials, preferably conducted in typical community settings, to produce sizable, sustained benefits to participants and/or society (“Top Tier”, n.d.).

In Oregon they have developed an intervention for parenting training for recently separated, single mothers with sons aged 6-10 years. It is administered by Implementation Sciences International, Inc. (ISII), a research-based, non-profit organization providing training for community practitioners in Parent Management Training – the Oregon Model (PMTO®). The cost per family to the organization is $1000 to $1500 dollars. The meetings teach five core parenting practices: appropriate, noncoercive discipline (e.g., setting limits, following through, reinforcing prosocial behavior); skill encouragement (e.g., breaking tasks such as homework into achievable steps); monitoring; problem solving; and positive involvement. They also teach skills tailored to divorcing women, including (i) emotional regulation (e.g., recognizing negative emotions, and practicing techniques to help regulate them); (ii) managing interparental conflict (e.g., through problem solving and negotiation); and (iii) addressing children’s divorce-related concerns (e.g., through active listening, problem solving, and recognizing and managing emotions). (“Parent Management Training”, n.d.).

Write: Imagine the Lovely People County Board of Eastern Kentucky are considering developing a program such as the ones rerferenced above for their county. The board is split, particularly around money and other resources, as to whether the county itself should implement the program or to take bids from other agents operating in the county. They have tapped you, as a county director of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), to help them make the best choice. You are ready to give them a report based on your research. Utilizing the readings and your own sources, discuss what issues might be involved in your determination of your recommendation to the county board. Based on this analysis let us know what you would recommend. These are some helpful resources that may help guide you in your recommendation:

Use the following questions to help direct you in your response:

  • Describe the advantages and challenges of the choice you are recommending over the other.
  • Given your counties special needs what recommendations would you give for constructing this program in your county?
  • Briefly, how would evaluate the success of the alternative you are recommending?

  • Strategic planning tools: BCG Matrix, Ansoff’s Matrix
  • Internal strengths & weaknesses, external opportunities & threats (SWOT analysis)
  • Media planning and budgeting
  • Implementation and control

In the featured case study, we will learn how different elements of a marketing plan are put together to create an actual marketing plan for “Cats & Cameos.” This is a hypothetical startup company, based on a real situation, that markets paired designer accessories for cats and their owners.

Chapter 10: Responsible Marketing

In this chapter, we will learn how to manage the marketing effort by using different tools and frameworks and see how to outline a marketing plan.

Key concepts:

DISCUSSION 1

Green Marketing or Greenwashing?

 Green Marketing or Greenwashing?

As a means of demonstrating their social responsibility, many companies engage in cause or green marketing efforts; however, such efforts can backfire. In recent years, the terms greenwashingand cause washing have emerged to refer to marketing efforts that capitalize on the goodwill associated with environmental or charitable causes but reflect minimal commitment.

What to Do (and How to Do It)…

In this interactivity, you’ll read about Patagonia’s “Don’t Buy This Jacket” campaign and the cause washing phenomena. Then you’re going to decide if you judge this to be green marketing or greenwashing and how it impacts your likelihood to purchase.

  • Learn about the Patagonia campaign.
    • In 2011, on Black Friday, the most important retail sales day of the year, Patagonia rocked the marketing world by running the “Don’t Buy This Jacket” ad in the New York Times and on the homepage of their website.
    • Was this a corporation putting their environmental principles ahead of their financial goals? Or was this just a brilliant way to grab Black Friday headlines and sell a lot of full-price product? Or was it both?
  • Learn more about values-based shopping (and cause washing).
  • Share your opinion on the Patagonia campaign with a forum post that answers the following questions:
    • Do you judge this campaign to be more green marketing or greenwashing? Why?
    • Would this campaign make you more or less likely to buy from Patagonia. Why?
  • Respond to three of your classmates.
    • Find at least one person who has a different opinion than you on one of the questions and attempt to convince that person of your position.
    • Later on, in our optional Week Five Polling Place, you’ll have the opportunity to tell us how much more (if any) you’d be willing to pay for a Patagonia jacket versus a similar item manufactured in a less environmentally responsible manner.
  • DISCUSSION 2
  • Art or Science?

    Art or Science?

    Let’s be honest, the “art” side of marketing gets most of the press. Everybody likes to talk about that cool new ad they recently saw; however, this is not true when it comes to big data and the advanced analytics being used to evaluate marketing effectiveness and drive marketing planning. In other words, nobody is writing TV shows about a couple of quirky marketing data scientists.

    So in this interactivity, we’re going to give marketing analytics its fifteen minutes of fame. Then, we want your take on whether marketing is more art or science and which side appeals more to you.
