Each month The Revolution will look different as it takes place against a new background.  At this moment the Revolution is operating from the rooftop of the Los Angeles Mission on Skid Row. Next month….c’mon no Revolution reveals where it’s staging next.

From each new vantage point we’re delving into the soul of the organization whose land we stand upon. For free we’re delivering new revolutionary Seize the Conversation strategies, human-centered-design-thinking and big ideas. By clicking Revolution of the Month, you can witness it all, on this site.

We couldn’t call ourselves a Revolution if we were just standing still. Follow theRevolution.

theRevolution in nonprofit marketing.

The thousands globally who are following this Revolution can be found in Starbucks everywhere, huddled over iPads the moment the weekly Blog-ifesto appears.

They now envision nonprofit marketing playing a role way beyond branding and social media. They see it as a positive disruption strategy to reach their fundraising, advocacy and participation goals in a new era. They believe it can be the creative force that changes the culture of the sector.

Seize the Conversation is rooted in two disciplines : A. The art of engaging individuals and crowds in a deeply meaningful and resonant conversation about the cause. B. And human-centered design thinking that gathers diverse minds to conceptualize big ideas that capture emotions and change the world.

Who owns the conversation, wins. Follow theRevolution.

Who owns theconversation wins.

Our culture is changing. "ME" has become "WE." In a new world, people identify with communities and are more influenced by their peers than by branding and commercial messages. They want to be engaged in real conversation. Seize the conversation is strategic, infused with energy, strategy, critical thinking, creativity and big ideas. It moves towards the creation of three results: fundraising, advocacy and participation. As a nonprofit in this environment, you're in the Seizing business.

1. What Conversations can your nonprofit own?

2. How do you frame the Conversations?

3. Which influencers will be invited into the Conversations?

4. How do you work with the influencers to penetrate their networks?

5. What BIG IDEAS will spread the Conversations?

6. How do you penetrate communities and crowds with the Conversations?

7. How do you take the Conversations to fundraising, advocacy and participation?

Today, you can't just throw a revolution.You have to design it.

In this new era of communication, Design is taking a lead. Think about how Design brings you through your day, beginning with the icons on your cellphone and computer. How often do you ever read a manual? Product design has become intuitive, like your coffee maker and car dashboard.

Apply these same Design Thinking principles to how you design a corporate or nonprofit culture, or even a fundraising campaign. Design Thinking, different from strategic planning, begins with creating Big Ideas for what you want the end result to look like. Design is the creative process which motivates critical thinking and collaboration.

Every aspect of this Revolution has been designed. Not only on the screen, but for its meaningful interactions, which can help to make a better world. The Revolution is prepared to show you how to do the same. (Check out Boot Camp)
