  • Introductions, we are primarily going to focus on seven key lessons for successful integrated fundraising. But we’ll start with some examples from a few campaigns.
  • We need to cover some important aspects of these multi-channel campaigns.
  • Not all offers are created equal – some will work very well in cultivation, but not so much in acquisition. Some are more major donor offers.
  • Jeff Brooks over at Future Fundraising now expertly dissected this Haiti campaign in a post entitled “Stupid disaster fundraising.” From multiplicity of broken design principles to the abstract and philosophical messaging, this campaign represents all that can go wrong when integration is assuming in high design.http://www.futurefundraisingnow.com/future-fundraising/2010/02/stupid-disaster-fundraising.html
  • Integration isn’t about fancy whizbang technical features you can add to wow your donors or constituents. Everything must have a purpose. Useful. Powerful. Engaging. Etc.
  • Here is a good example of what we believe was an APPROPRIATE and POWERFUL use of features to enhance a message. In this case, the intention was to engage constituents to pray for a college campus somewhere in the country.
  • Repeat impressions can be powerful!
  • Some channels, such as Direct Mail and Email and Phone are going to drive direct, measureable response. Some channels such as banner ads, radio oftentimes, print tend to influence response, but not be as directly attributable. And there is another set of channels, especially in social media, that have proven to be great at engaging and interacting with constituent’s but have been less adept at garnering response.
  • If you’re a good fundraiser, you have learned the fine art of measuring each channel at extraordinary detail. The problem, is that the way we’ve always done it doesn’t work as well as it used to – our culture has changed. Now, we need to measure by channels, AND measure by campaign.
  • Traditionally nonprofit marketers are all about transactions, and brand advertisers all about relationships. We’ve GOT to maximize BOTH for long-term sustainable results.We must be about transactions AND relationships.
  • For each campaign or strategy, ask how we can deepen/enrich relationship?
  • STEVE: Studies have said that 40-60% of all donors and 80% of major donors go online to validate giving decisions, even though the vast majority have still never given one gift online. Last I heard, 40% of Haiti income was given through new media, but it’s almost exclusively old media that’s driving people to give.
  • 1.3 million people watched U.S. President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech live on the White House’s website — or at least on sites that embedded the official video. 13.9 million watched the inauguration on CNN.com alone a year ago. Twilight: MySpace just released their data and as it turns out, the stream garnered over 2 million uniques, and almost 3 million total viewers.STEVE: Has passed search as the #1 activity online. It’s the #1 thing Boomers do online.
  • Haiti put text to give on the map of the general consumer, but text to give is limited. Mobile will begin to overcome the key limitations of text to give in 2010 (including limited gift amounts, lack of data, long processing times, etc.) with other mobile giving solutions – text to donate, secure mobile apps, etc.
