What is Cause Marketing?

Cause marketing or cause-related marketing refers to a type of marketing involving the cooperative efforts of a for-profit business and a non-profit organization for mutual benefit.

Cause Marketing is Good Business

According to recent figures, 97% of marketing executives believe cause marketing to be a valid business strategy. As a group, Millennial's interests in particular go beyond specific causes to world issues and they expect companies to support major world issues as well as local audiences. Cooperative ventures with non-profit organizations also give companies great stories to tell about how their organizations are "giving back" to the community.
