Five Ways to Maximize Mobile this Year


Published on

What is your organization doing to maximize mobile? Beyond responsive design and optimizing landing pages for mobile, how can you make mobile work for activism, fundraising, and loyalty now and in the next five years?

See3 Partner Nick Allen put together this presentation on how to take advantage of the new opportunities in mobile for communications, fundraising, activism, and building supporter loyalty — and how to develop a strategic roadmap for mobile for your organization.

See what's working – and what’s not – in SMS, apps, and one-click giving via PayPal, Amazon, and OneID’s QuickDonate. Also covers responsive Web design, how to make your communications look good on smartphone, and how to select priority information to present to your supporters on small screens.

About the presenter: As founder of the Donordigital agency, Nick Allen helped create the first U.S. mobile advocacy networks for the Humane Society of the United States, Amnesty International USA, and Human Rights Campaign. He recently joined See3 Communications after two years in Barcelona working with online and mobile programs for UNICEF, UNHCR, and World Vision in Spain, Amnesty International and WSPA in London, and UNAIDS in Geneva.

  • Ustedes probablemente saben lo que UNICEF ha estado haciendo con SMS. El Hormiguero ha hablado de UNICEF en dos ocasiones, pidiendo a la gente a enviar un SMS donación de 1,2 euros. UNICEF ha recibido casi 500.000 donacions SMS. Eso es € 600.000 de los SMS.
  • Pero estos SMS pueden ser los más valiosos como ”leads” o interesados. UNICEF hace una llamada a estos donantes y pide que se conviertan en Socios en 10 o 15 euros al mes, y un buen número estan de acuerdo en convertirse en Socios. Así que usted puede hacer los cálculos. Los espanoles no puedan dar mas que 1,2 cada SMS y las organizactions no recibe la información de los donantes, Creo que esto demuestra que el uso más importante de SMS puede ser ahora para captar interesados.
  • This was the Ad which featured on overland trains, London Underground and Washrooms – public bathrooms. We chose these places to show our outdoor because although competing with other ads, they are a pretty captive audience and are going to looking at for a while. They are also likely to see it more than once because they will take the same travel journey again.Similar theme to the TV ad in terms of the simple ask with a really tangible solution – the blanket which is the same price as the text donation.Message was again about the fact that Syrian children had already been through an appalling ordeal but now they are also facing a devastatingly cold winter , this is just so unfair but there’s something so simple you can do to make children feel warm again.
