NetCommunity Grow is probably different from the solutions that you have purchased from Blackbaud in the past. NetCommunity Grow is not only about delivery great tools, its about focusing on results by working directly with Blackbaud’s internet experts. The key words to look at in this description are: internet marketing technology, expert led, impact, and results.
What are we really talking about here? Lets look at the 3 things that make up the netcommunity grow program. Were talking about focusing on results, and results come from having the right experts and the right tools. Results. Expertise. Tools. Of course all of these things are power by the Industry leading Supporter Management System, The Raiser’s Edge
Really drive home that we are the experts here. Over 2,600 employees. All web designers are professional nonprofit website designers. NPO Pages should be different from other sites. There are specific calls to action and information that needs to be strategically located on the pages. Our staff is the best at producing these NPO focused websites. Craig – any additions?
The importance of your website! 8-10 people are online and that number is growing. No longer do we live in a brochure world. Your website is your brochure!
You can see these stats that we’ve been able to glean. What this is really telling us is what we already know – the young folks are online. 65+ audience is growing. You can’t see your kids unless you go on Facebook or twitter to see what they are up to. You think the older generation isn’t online? My 85 year old Grandma in AZ is on Facebook and keeps close tabs on what I’m up to. The wealth gravitates towards technology. – this is your online audiance
Online giving is growing at a rapid rate – Have you ever received a gift online of this size?
This is the credibility check – people will check you out before engaging. Are we wowing them at the front door? Can they easily find the “calls to action?” “Is our content recent?” Will they stay? Will they come back? Has the site changed since their last visit?
Branded pages matter! Professionalism matters! What’s the point? Supporters online – don’t miss out on the opportunity
You’ll always have donors who give by check via the mail and that’s great. We’re not here to force anyone to go online to donate. A you’re website should serve two purposes (Cultivation and Acquisition). Having a professional built website and online donation pages will open your doors to the “prospects” or New donors to continue growing your donor list. Craig anything to add:
We talked about professionalism mattering – are you professional enough to keep them on your page. Branding – We need to reflect your missions and captures their attention.
Best Practice Design – Shameless plug
Bring up the slide show, the call to actions down the right hand side
Craig anything to add:
Pause here – ask about design – our design preferences are like designing a house. We put things in places where they naturally belong on a website. Do you have anyone here on staff that wants to build this from the ground up. Are there designs or ideas on exactly what you want the new page to look like?
Email preference centers (or Email Subscription Center) are a great model for combining your email sales and marketing goals with your customer needs. JupiterResearch reports that nearly four out of 10 email marketers say list turnover is their greatest challenge. Forrester states that the average company will lose 30 percent of its email subscriber list per year. Summarizing – just because you have a list of donors this doesn’t mean people are going to respond to your efforts.

Tyler to cover the slide then kick things over to Craig for a deeper conversation on this slideCraig – Drive home multi channel marketing - Look, we started this conversation talking about all the ways we can make you money. #1 way we can help you drive online revenue across all sectors. I don’t know how much your making right now but can you imagine adding another 43% to what you’re doing now? This gives you a cost reduction side as well
CraigTie it all down here. What we hear from our clients is that they really want us to increase a couple things, web traffic, online giving, and higher growth of the email files
Craig:First things first- if you don’t have emails.Participating Grow clients in Jan 2011- before using Grow to after using GrowOn average, Blackbaud Grow clients grow their email subscription list over 100% - by driving people to their website through traditional fundraising/communication methods and by using the tools available to them with NetCommunity, such as online event registrations, online giving, community sign ups, enewsletters – they have been able to capture more emails and grow their house file.Let’s take a look at some of these interactive toolsEncouraged donors to look up giving history online during tax season (2 years in a row now) by mailing out postcards telling them about it. It generates a lot of online signups (which include email addresses). Sent postcards encouraging people to sign up for new websiteDriving direct mail donors to make their gifts onlinecollecting e-mail on registrations for eventsUsing emails to reach out to our alumni to have them spead the word of mouth to their fellow alumni.We are in the process right now to really utilizing our website with the polls, online event registration, monthly discussions, e-newsletters, etc.Asking for them with every donationconstant request to provide us with email addressesduring reunions and other school events.
Here’s our vision for you – This is your vision and Blackbaud’s vision coming together. You can’t do one without the other and running separately these two programs are not as effective.The answer to growth is integration!

IMMEDIATE, MEASUREABLE RESULTS• “Byfar one of the greatest benefits to Blackbaud NetCommunity is its integration with The Raiser’s Edge. Not only does online giving save staff time in donation processing and decrease the chances of data error, it also stores it in The Raiser’s Edge so that we can have a single view of our donors.” — Jennifer Friedley, Director of Development, Midland Care Connection• “We have raised more money with Blackbaud NetCommunity, but, more importantly, we have gained donors. These are donors we can cultivate and hopefully make returning donors. I believe the work we have done using Blackbaud NetCommunity is one of the primary reasons we have had this success acquiring new donors.” — Tracy Armitage, Information Systems Manager, Maine Medical Center 5/9/2012 37
