How many fundraising emails should you send a year?

After working on over 400 nonprofit email recruitment campaigns, and helping clients plan successful recruitment strategies, I’ve realized that most nonprofits don't send nearly enough standalone fundraising appeals. I've seen clients make their money back on their investments with Care2 in as little as three months, or as long as four years. There are obviously lots of variables involved with raising money online – and ultimately in various direct response channels – however we now as an industry have enough data to know what’s possible for most organizations, and this article will hopefully give some insight into how to get the most out of your email fundraising program.

Don't Let Endless Meetings Derail Decision-Making

Does your organization have trouble making decisions? Perhaps you have endless meetings discussing whether to launch a campaign? Or debates about that rapid response to a recent development around a core issue that your organization is working on. Sound familiar? Our discomfort with taking action and making decisions quickly stems from our desire to want everyone at the table to be supportive and feel good about the decisions being made within the organization.

Webinar: Converting Prospects to Multichannel Gold

Not sure how much your online supporters are worth? Thinking there may be a better way to maximize their value?  Frustrated at internal barriers to multichannel integration?  If so, this webinar is for you. Multichannel donors are gold. Annual revenues are often 4x that of direct mail only donors, with higher retention and much better net.  Simply supplementing an email with a text or a mail piece (or both!) can dramatically improve response rates. This session is for those who are ready to break down the barriers and effectively conduct multichannel marketing. Join Jeff Regen of M+R Strategic Services, Adam Scruggs of the Human Rights Campaign and Justin Perkins of Care2, and hear them discuss how rapid, multichannel conversion strategies can turn your new online supporters into multichannel donors. See case studies and data on what’s working and what’s not. The webinar will also dive into the major barriers to multichannel marketing, such as organizational structure, separate online and offline budgets, and lack of data integration. You’ll learn about the practical ways that nonprofits are overcoming these obstacles to conduct effective multichannel campaigns leading to fundraising success.
