    • Mobile Market – Usage
      • 228 million people in U.S. have a mobile phone
      • 31% are smartphones (projected to be +50% in 2012)
      • 83.2 million access the web on their phone**
      Question: Is your web presence – website and social media outlets - an important part of your outreach strategy?
      If the answer is “yes”, then mobile is a must-have.
    • mPhilanthropy
      “Nonprofit organizations that harness the power and potential of smartphones can create new community networks, spark interest in the arts and sciences, mobilize volunteers, and inspire ordinary citizens to take action like never before.”
      Carol Buckhei, NonProfit MediaWorks, September 1, 2010
      Strategy Tip: Raising money via mobile outreach is important, but mobile’s real value is in its unique ability to heighten engagement. Put simply, mobile is another channel for communication with some special abilities that need to be part of an overall strategy to be effective.
    • mPhilanthropy – Strategy
      • Take a serious look at measurement and ROI to make sure you are getting the most value out of your time investment in mobile outreach. Mobile should be considered by all parts of the organization, and not just the fundraising areas.
      • Consider an integrated, measurable, and effective approach, and not just the tools.
      • This means mobile readable web site content, apps, and mFundraising (text & QR codes)- both for engagement and marketing/fundraising.
    • mPhilanthropy Strategy – Mobile Website
      Given the new breed of smartphones, tablets and affordable all-you-can-eat data packages, consumers now expect the same Web experience on mobile devices that they get on desktop and laptop computers. Mobile constituents are no different. A mobile website is core to your mobile strategy.
      How does your website appear on a mobile phone?
    • mPhilanthropy Strategy – Mobile Apps
      Mobile applications should be based around the services and expertise provided by your organization, not strictly making gifts. This creates value, and thus, deeper engagement, with your constituents.
      • Promote and grow events
      • Build viewership for multimedia
      • Stay top-of-mind with constituents
      • Educate and inspire
      • Raise awareness
      • Increase donations
      Strategy Tip: If you determine that a mobile app is for you, BE SURE to use a mobile content management system that will deploy across all platforms (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Mobile Web) so you don’t leave anyone out!
    • Mobile Fundraising Strategy – Text/SMS
      There is a lot of “buzz” around text/SMS fundraising. From the Red Cross’s success in disaster recovery to President Obama’s campaign fundraising success. There are challenges and opportunities to using mobile for fundraising that should be taken in to consideration.
      We highly recommend reading the recent benchmark study by MobileActive for a comprehensive overview. It can be accessed for free, here:
      Strategy Tip: If your website isn’t optimized for mobile, or you don’t have a mobile app to direct people to, your text/SMS fundraising campaign will fail to truly get your responders to engage with your organization!
    • Mobile Fundraising Strategy – QR Codes
      QR Codes (Quick Response) are two-dimensional bar code images that when scanned by a camera on a smartphone open a link to a website, send a SMS, or dial a phone number.
      • Educate
      • Raise awareness
      • Register for event
      • Capture contact info
      • Raise $
      Instant Access
      On a poster, brochure, fundraising letter, t-shirt, print ad, web – wherever you’re already marketing!
      Make sure you have a mobile website or app!
