  • Warning! Geeky humour and references abound. Apologies in advance. There WILL be unicorns. \n\nAnd I might leave you with more questions than answers - sorry about that. But if at the end of this, you walk away from this thinking wow - it can be done, we just need to fit the pieces together - then I shall consider this a success. \n

  • Let’s do a little experiment. Let’s ask the question again. Have you ever raised revenue directly through facebook or twitter? Alright. Now what if we do this. Does your answer change? Take a second to think. \nThe second part baffles me, because most tools are free! Sure you can do fancy things if you pay, but you can do very very much for free. I think this is the misguided belief that fundraising digitally is magic. \n

  • Eventbrite, tickets - march this year\nShare button all over the site. 40% of all sharing happens before purchase - 60% after. So sharing AFTER is more interesting to the consumer. In fact, 10x more interesting. And as a post purchase share drives 20% more ticket sales - that is good news. \n
  • De har sett på hvilke eventer som deles mest, og selv om nettverkingseventer er de som deles mest - er det musikk og fundraisingseventer som gir mest i kassa. \n\nFor eventbrite - every music event that is shared on facebook is worth 12$. Now that’s revenue to me! \n

  • - This shouldn’t be hard, right? We’ve always taken good care of our donors, right? \n- These people are used to free postage. Handwritten notes in their packages. The CEO replying to their every need around the clock! \n
  • \n
  • Sometimes, loving your donors is really a bit hard to do. \n

  • Now that’s just magic customer service. Charity:water has secured a life time donor here in young mackenzie, just by offering great customer service. Or thank you, as we used to call it. \n
  • There are so many great examples of people starting different things that charities did not instigate or have control over, and caring for these volunteers is a whole different subject. I think we are somewhat wrong to put this into the same context as digital fundraising - this is community management\n

  • A DM in your mailbox will always contain a solid ask, but online we tend to think that our ever-present «donate now»-button is the solution to every problem. Why don’t you ask me directly, in the blogpost? \nIf a facebook share is worth 12$ - why are you okay with that puny little f on the top of your pages? Why do you not have a pop-up that says «please share this donation with your facebook friends, chances are they’ll donate too»\n
  • \n
  • we need new CRM tools to sort out all this data. You need to be careful about the balance. \n
  • The most important thing you can do for fundraising through facebook, is to not really fundraise on facebook. Now, I know this sounds contradictory to what I just said about asking, but it’s a matter of how and when. While you might not ask on facebook, you might share a story - that has an ask at the bottom. \nI also find that this varies greatly within different charities and the type of people on your page. On the pink ribbon-page, i can be very commercial and push products. On the cancer society main page i cannot. \n
  • This is one of my favourite examples of the lack of crm. So we need to work out new methods for CRM, social CRM if you will, to make sure this doesn’t happen. And we need to start over on the donor journey. Buzzword-alert: Social CRM. \n

  • The term «Demographic» kind of needs to be redefined. We are used to thinking of demographic in terms of age, gender and geographical location. I would be single 30 year old woman, Oslo Norway. You can no longer define me thus. I am public speaker - identifying with 50 year old men. I am techie, identifying with severe geeks. I am a passionate super-aunt, identifying with mommy-bloggers. I am a politician, identifying with people of the same political views. I am a traveler. I am a commuter. I am a daughter. I am a fundraiser. I like the band Foo Fighters. All of this define me. Do not treat me as woman, 30. \n
  • \n
  • If I don’t know who these people are - how do we communicate with them? We need to gain insight. We need to know when are they logged on to fb? When do they respond? Monday or friday? Am or Pm? Do they like to be adressed via photo, video, link or status? You need to measure this and find out. \n
  • This means that these are likely to be different people. We don’t really know much about them. And the trouble is; the term demographic in a traditional sense doesn’t really help us anymore. It is nice to know that we are reaching people 20 years earlier, that they might be loyal donors ten years longer - but we don’t know the context of why they are here. \n

We need to learn how to use it. \n
  • \n
  • Isn’t that just heart warming? Makes me almost want to become a bus driver. \n
  • I do not know why you are listing budget as a reason not to do this. This is cheap. This you can do with your mobile phone. And this sort of thing will make people speak of you. And if they speak of you, they donate. \n
  • Now, if you don’t want to donate after watching this - there is something wrong with you. But the experience of the video needs to match the experience on the website, you can’t be met with policy-babble. In digital there’s no line between the fundraising departement and the communication-people. Their work affects yours. Buy them chocolate.\n
  • \n
  • This is being the solution to a problem. This is really showing how Charity:Water makes a difference as a charity. And how you as a donor make a difference. \n\nYou can be spesific as a cancer charity too, you just have to think harder. LiveStrong asked me to help fund just ONE extra communicty class. That’s spesific. \n\nThe thing is; if you never say «this is our goal» - you can never say «look! We reached it - thanks to you guys!»\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • «Old» marketing is all about promising to do something. In new marketing - we can prove to you, right here and now, how we can fulfill this promise. \n«Old» marketing is about popping in and out of the consumers mind - with new, social media you can have a lingering presence where the consumer relates to you on a long term basis. \n

  • Chart from september, the october numbers this year are reordbreaking, so they scew the data. \n
  • Pay to show off - applications that let you paste something onto your profile picture or make some small contribution. This is effective if your brand is well known or your communication clever. \n
  • \n
  • The only thing these people have in common is identifying as nerds. Nothing else. But he was able to tap this demographic.\n
  • wrong approach say a form letter to an irrelevant blogger\ncontacting someone you saw tweeting about your charity or cause, and asking them to help out, give them content to share. \n
  • \n
  • We need to do the work e-commerce sites have been doing for years. Driving traffic and moving people is useless if they don’t know how to donate. \n

  • Anyone do DM’s?«Everything on the internet is accelerateddirect marketing.» - quote from unknown smartie, picked up from twitter http://about.me/beatesorum
  • What makes a good DM? • The ask • Frequency • Target demographic • Emotions • Being the solution to a defined problemWhy is it we find this hard to do on the internet? http://about.me/beatesorum
  • Too much space ..in an ad or DM we have to budget our space. On the internet we can put up any crap (scuze the language) ....so we forget to prioritize, we forget to ask, and we forget to rigidly monitor and analyze. http://about.me/beatesorum
  • The ask• In digital media; he who askes recieves.• Ask your supporters for help! ➡ Not just donations, or volunteers ➡ Ask them to share donations? http://about.me/beatesorum
  • What makes a good DM?✓The ask• Frequency• Target demographic• Emotions• Being the solution to a defined problem http://about.me/beatesorum
  • Frequency• How often do you send out a DM?• How often do you ask in an e-mail?• How often on facebook?• How often on twitter?• ..and do you know who gets what anymore?
  • Frequency"users were annoyed by non-profits that tried topush products or donations, or tried to get themto sign up for other things like e-newsletters"http://www.useit.com/alertbox/nonprofit-donations.html
  • Do you have control over who recieves what - where?
  • Do you have control over who recieves what - where? «I was treated to truly engaging online updates on the way my donation was being used (particularly well done UNICEF and Oxfam), plus some fun and interesting new opportunities to engage (nice one ActionAid) However, in other cases I’ve ended-up on the receiving-end of a seemingly endless series of direct mailings that might, at a push, appeal to my mum but frankly don’t do anything for me. I honestly don’t need a cardboard bookmark, or an Easter card, or a diary. I certainly didn’t need the twelve mailpacks that one charity has now sent me in less than twelve months – I’ll not say who you are, to spare your blushes, but you’re big and you should know better than just bunging a £20 online emergency donor into every cash appeal going!» From the blogpost «Haiti one year on, the view from an online donors doormat» by Bryan Miller. (bolds are my emphasis) http://givinginadigitalworld.org/2011/01/27/haiti-one-year-on-the-view-from- an-online-donors-doormat/
