SMBLA - The Power of Free Marketing

  • Speakers: Matthew Manos, Founder of verynice.co
  • When: Tuesday, July 29, 2014 from 7:30am - 9:00am
  • Where: Coupa Café of Beverly Hills

In this month's SMBLA event, we will hear from Matthew Manos, the founder of verynice, a consultancy that is most famous for giving half of its work away for free to nonprofit organizations. Matt's talk will reveal how pro bono work can help you build your business, and will give attendees a first look into how verynice grew its volunteer staff to over 300 people without any direct solicitation (hint: social media!!). If that is not enough, Matt will also share the BIGGEST mistake businesses and organizations are making when dabbling in cause marketing.

• Learn about the power of empathy in cause marketing

• Discover how to build a global movement through social media

• How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free - the power of probono marketing


Matthew Manos is a neo-philanthropist, creative director, and author that is dedicated to disrupting the economic models of service-oriented business. He founded verynice, a global design and innovation consultancy that dedicates over 50% of its efforts toward free services for non-profit organizations. Now with offices in Los Angeles and New York, verynice has been able to grow into a global network of over 300 designers and strategists. He is also the author of “How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free,” an internationally distributed documentation of verynice’s 50% pro-bono business model and the subsequent “Give Half Movement.”
