Come see us at Bridge 2018!

July 23, 2018

Cornershop Creative staff is on the move! The summer conference season has begun. On our first stop, you can find us at the 2018 Bridge to Integrated Marketing & Fundraising Conference (or just “Bridge” for short).

What is Bridge?

Never heard of Bridge? Bridge is a direct marketing conference, which is not one you would expect us to be at. However, as fundraising has moved more and more online, hitting an all-time high of its percentage of total funds raised by nonprofits, the need and demand for digital agency representation at these types of conferences has increased. It’s also why we now offer digital fundraising campaign management to help guide nonprofits through the wonderful world of raising money online.

Donation Form Drinking Game (sans alcohol!)

Join co-founder Ira Horowitz and our friend Carrie from Friends of the Earth for some fun-draising tips! Discover a few key changes you can make to your forms, CTAs, and  campaigns to increase revenue. You can attend this session at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, August 1.

Where can you find us?

We first attended Bridge last year, and they sent us home with the “Best Booth” award! This year, you can find us at Booth #424. Stop by, say hi, and get your Percent Daily Value of (pretend!) fruits and veggies.

Not going to Bridge? We’ll be at Netroots Nation next week and at BBCon in Orlando in October, too!
