Thanks for joining us!
It’s not every day that a conference like this comes along. One day. Seven sessions from the convenience of your own desk. Tons of expert tips, insights, and examples for nonprofits. And, it’s absolutely FREE!
This online event was held on January 30, 2014, but you can still watch recordings of the sessions listed below.
This conference was hosted by the Integrated Marketing Advisory Board. We pulled together leading practitioners of integrated fundraising and marketing to present on some of the hottest topics in the sector.
Integrated Marketing and the Donor Lifecycle:
Balancing Short-Term and Long-Term Engagement for Greater Lifetime Value
Building strong, long-lasting relationships with supporters — it’s how you grow funds, build support, and increase awareness for your mission. But, improving constituent experiences requires a real balancing act of different approaches for short-term and long-term engagement.
Whether your organization is big or small, you’ll leave this session with practical ideas and real-world examples for engaging more effectively with your constituents — today and for years to come!
Who Is Your Nonprofit Missing?
Using Integrated Marketing to Connect with Generations X, Y, & Z
If you’re spending all your time trying to reach younger supporters through social media, or by using the same channels and messages you use for everyone else in your database, you might be missing the mark.
In this session, we highlight findings from recent studies on donor behavior to explore how Generations X, Y, and Z give, how they prefer to communicate, what types of charities they support, and how your organization can engage with them more effectively. You’ll leave this session with solid data, real-world examples, helpful tips, and a clearer understanding of how to connect with younger generations of supporters.
Combining Digital and Traditional Channels for Integrated Fundraising Success
How can nonprofit organizations integrate mobile, social media, and other digital channels with traditional marketing channels and approaches to create integrated fundraising success? This exciting, case study-based session reveals the do's, don'ts, and results of integrated programs and campaigns that take the newest marketing tools and beautifully combine them with the “old stand bys”.
The New Rosetta Stone?
Getting Your Fundraising and Non-Fundraising Departments on the Same Integrated Page
SPEAKER: Geoff Handy, Senior Vice President, Direct Marketing and Membership, Humane Society of the United States
Nonprofits are learning how to integrate mission and fundraising messaging — with great success! This case study-based session shows how communications, public relations, marketing, and fundraising messaging can be combined to create a deeper relationship with younger, middle aged, and older donors. Listen in as we show how to bridge the fundraising and non-fundraising gap to create integrated messaging that serves all parts of an organization.
The Budgeting Balance:
How Should Your Nonprofit Save and Spend Its Next Dollars?
SPEAKER: Michael Vcelik, Senior Director, Annual Giving Marketing and Communications, Boys Town
Fundraising investment decisions are complicated within an omnichannel environment. It’s not as simple as reallocating your direct mail acquisition spend to digital channels, or replacing mail pieces with emails or social media posts. To increase revenue, how do you determine if you rent more lists, mail deeper into your existing file, send additional emails, etc.? How do you balance digital investment between programming and fundraising? This session explores issues of acquisition, renewal, long term value, testing, and investment for the short term and long term.
Translating Corporate Success for the Nonprofit Sector:
Creating a Balanced Scorecard for Integrated Fundraising Success
It’s an incredible challenge for most nonprofits to develop and deliver on an integrated fundraising strategy (including systems, processes, people, channels, and methods), but we know in the 21st century that being successful means being integrated. To tackle the challenges of integration, corporations are coming to rely on a Balanced Scorecard to simultaneously address questions around financial planning, customer engagement, business process and growth goals. As corporate leaders are making their way to the C-Suite of some of the world’s biggest nonprofits, they are bringing this valuable planning and measurement tool.
This session is a how-to master class for using a Balanced Scorecard to help achieve integrated fundraising success. We walk through key elements of creating a successful Balanced Scorecard, including the Strategy Map, Scorecard, and Implementation Plan. Real-world case studies from nonprofit organizations help make things crystal clear.
