Award-Winning Public Service Announcements
A public service announcement can be a powerful tool for raising awareness of your organization and your issues. This webinar will show you the differences between advertisements and PSAs, and help you decide which one to develop to meet specific goals. We will review the basic components needed to create a successful PSA. Attendees will learn what makes PSAs not only memorable but, more importantly, actionable – inspiring your adopters, donors or volunteers to act. Bonus, you’ll enjoy viewing several award-winning PSAs produced by your peers.
