I. Email Marketing Upgrade

Do you want to double your click thru rates? Mobilize more subscribers to take action? Convert more subscribers into donors?

Together we can boost your email fundraising and marketing efforts by reviewing your… 

  • Onboarding process: Are you using best practices to encourage new signups via your website? It matters if you want to grow your list!

  • Data: I’ll analyze your email data to see what’s working and what isn’t. 

I will craft a custom strategy from this audit which will rapidly improve your email fundraising and marketing.

II. Social Media Spark

Social media provides your organization with platforms to post content which reaches your target audience, connects with them and mobilizes them to action. But you can’t start a fire without a spark.

To spark your social media efforts, I’ll conduct a review and then craft a custom strategy with a roadmap to success. 

  • Platforms: Are you using the right ones? What opportunities are available to take advantage of?
  • Content: I’ll evaluate your current content plan, use data to analyze whether your content is engaging your followers and provide you with new ways to connect.
  • Blog: Content review to demonstrate your nonprofit’s expertise and individuality and suggest ways to attract more eyeballs.
  • Video: How to use it effectively and appropriately to stay in touch with followers.

III. Website Boost

Your website is your window to the world. Is it keeping people’s attention? Does each page have a call to action? Are people taking action such as subscribing to your enewsletter, signing up to volunteer, registering for events or donating? 

My website boost reviews the following areas:

  • Layout: Did you know that 50% of people visit websites via their phone? Is your site easy for users to navigate and engage with? Is your mobile site helping or hindering users in their efforts to connect?
  • Forms: Analysis of landing pages, subscription forms (e.g. newsletter, volunteering) and online donation form. Are they converting? Can we ratchet up your conversion rate?
  • Content: Is the content doing its job- read and react? Are you using the rule of KISS (keep it simple and short!)? Let’s figure out which pages need work.
  • Data: Google Analytics tells a story about how people use your site. I’ll analyze the relevant data points and use that to help improve the overall site experience.

IV. Communications Check-up

How are you currently communicating with donors, supporters, cheerleaders and followers? I’ll provide suggestions for improvements and new ideas you can test and implement. 

  • Online and offline marketing materials: Review, analysis and suggested upgrades for annual reports, welcome emails, fundraising letters and more
  • Communications: Are you missing out on chances to place articles, interviews or op-eds in various media outlets?  How can you reach a wider audience, educate them and mobilize them to join your cause?
  • Gratitude audit: Are you thanking your donors properly? Making them feel good about how they’re helping their community? Don’t unintentionally lose donors. Let’s evaluate and improve!
