Goodwill & Digital Media:Convenience, Cultivation and Conversion!
Mission and ModelGoodwill mission - is to transform lives andcommunities through the power of educationand employment. – We help put people backto work.Goodwill model – Social enterprise. We area nonprofit charitable agency that runs like atraditional business.
Why social/digital media?• Traditional fundraising accounts for only 3% of our annual revenue• Fundraising is not a major focus, but a huge opportunity!• Digital media gives us an additional fundraising channel – “Give2theMax”• Primary benefit is in support of Goodwill’s “economic engine”: donated goods and retail operations• Requires time and talent, but little hard cost• Excellent channel for education, positioning and building brand loyalty
Goals of Digital/Social Media 1. Prospect, educate and cultivate donors, consumers and advocates 2. Convert consumers and donors into Goodwill customers, donors and brand/mission advocates 3. Provide greater convenience for donors, shoppers and advocates Approach: 1. Use an integrated approach combining both new media and traditional media. 2. Message is always consistent, positioning and channels differ based on segmented population
Digital Channels• Facebook – donor / shopper education, prospecting, cultivation and activation.• Twitter – donor / shopper education, prospecting, cultivation and activation• Fashion blog (English & Spanish) – Consumer engagement, cultivation and conversion. Help position Goodwill as a fashion resource to change perceptions• YouTube – Educate viewers, put a face to our mission, prospect and cultivate• Foursquare – Retail brand loyalty rewards and / or sampling• QR Codes – Retail brand loyalty rewards and/or sampling• Mobile app (iPhone & iPad) Donor and shopper convenience, education, engagement• Content marketing/virtual fashion shows – Consumer cultivation and conversion• eBay & ShopGoodwill.com – online shopping portal. Demand driven price points = higher margins• Survey Monkey – Customer and donor satisfaction• Basecamp – Internal project management, convenience
Successes and challenges Success:• Tremendous success in repositioning our retail operations and generating donations of household goods. – Sales are up – donations are up – reputation is dramatically improved – blogger is quoted in fashion stories – Received millions of dollars in earned media, strengthening position and promise Challenges:• Digital technology is still evolving so there is a big learning curve• Nonprofit models are very different, and not always compatible with online giving (texting, subscription, email, FB, etc) Future:• Digital fundraising will grow because technology is growing. Checks will one day no longer be used as baby boomers pass on. Those building social networks now will benefit tomorrow.• Must develop a long term strategy and be committed
