Positioning is about the battle for the mind, heart, time – and yes – the wallets of your supporters. I know that might sound somewhat crass, but people tend to support causes and organizations they connect with and find personally relevant. And, more often than we’d like to believe, sometimes they simply support the ones that are the most persistent.
Imagine for a moment that you are at a critical point in your life.
You’re jobless and your savings account is dwindling fast. To make matters worse, your immediate and extended family members are all living with you and counting on you for support. And because of circumstances beyond their control, no one in your family is able to work except for you.
