Episode 052 – Kristi Porter

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #52 with Kristi Porter – Copywriting and Marketing for Cause-Focused Organizations.

Kristi is the founder of Signify – a marketing and consulting firm for cause-focused organizations in 2016 as a solution to her friends’ problems. She knew several people who founded cause-focused organizations, but few had marketing experience. They were struggling to get the work done that they already understood, much less the world of marketing and business communications that they didn’t. For many years she stepped in as a freelancer or informal consultant.

As time passed, she saw a void that needed to be filled. Similar organizations who were just getting started, or who had stayed small, couldn’t afford a staffer with Kristi’s knowledge and experience, but they could hire someone like her for projects as needed. This led to the creation of Signify. She knew that there were others like them—like you—and she wanted to help.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • Philanthropy is a good marketing strategy.
  • Where you shop and what you buy matters.
  • The founding of Signify.
  • The transition from employee to freelancer to business owner.
  • Entrepreneurs vastly overestimate what they can do in a year and vastly underestimate what they can do in 10.
  • Running a business is a constant adventure.
  • Writing motto: write something you want yourself to read again.
  • Active versus passive writing.
  • Copywriting is part of the relationship between entrepreneur and customer.
  • Recognizing and fixing your money issues.
  • Your relationship with money is a constant work– wherever you are in your business.
  • Work doesn’t need to be hard, if you work in your zone of genius.
  • Streamlining and simplifying the workflow.
  • Marketing, as a tool, is neutral.
  • You’re only ever talking to one person no matter the size of the audience.
  • Define who the person you’re trying to reach with your business.
  • Fighting for the small organizations in the cause-focused space.
  • You don’t have to be a big organization to look and sound professional.
  • It’s harder to be brief and simple than long and verbose.

The HERO Challenge

Today on the show, Kristi Porter challenged Ashley Jones to be a guest on The HERO Show. Kristi thinks that Ashley is a fantastic interview because she runs a non-profit called LoveNotLost.org. Ashley was a photographer when her daughter died from a terminal illness at an early age.

She needed to get up and start working so she started to donate photoshoots to people who were going through tough situations. That’s how Ashley’s business began.
