Editor's Notes

  • In the nonprofit space, your supporters and activists are superhero's.
  • How can superheroes save the day since that is their ultimate goal?
  • You need to reach people wherever they are.
  • Or perhaps you are travelling to a new city for business or vacation and checking email and social media on your laptop or mobile devices
  • Waiting at the bus and going to meet a friend for dinner and you see this provocative billboard by the American Red Cross with a QR code that when you scan it prompts you for a donation to help the earthquake victims.
  • You need to be able to sell multi channel campaigns to your boss. The next few slides are some good data that you can use to convince the powers that be that your organization should be making this investment.
  • There was an interesting study conducted by PEW on how text donors to the Haiti disaster relief compare to the national average in terms of tech and social media adoption
  • During Hurricane Sandy, Rad Campaign launched a $25K matching fundraising campaign with Craig Newmark of craigconnects and craigslist to raise money for nonprofits supporting Hurricane relief. In less then 3 days we raised $50K through peer-to-peer fundraising. Interestingly the Crowdrise site does not have a responsive design. However, the donation form, which is the most important part of the site is in a responsive design so donors can quickly donate money via mobile. If you can’t afford to make all of your site in a responsive design, at least invest in making the sign up forms, donation forms, and take action forms in a responsive design.

  • One of the keys in designing multi-channels campaigns is to not only reach our heroes but to get them to spread our message and recruit new heroes to the movement. And that is why designing for distribution is critical.
  • People all over the world used ’sMeetup Everywhere feature to register a solidarity event in over a 1000 cities. Four months after the launch of #OccupyWallStreet, there were over 2,800 “Occupy” events on the Meetup Everywhere Map.
  • QR codes can be useful to drive people to take actions and see content, photos, videos online and of course donate money. You can use them in direct mail, at events in print materials and posters, and tickets.
