WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE TO YOU?
It’s probably all about the goals you have for your community and the passion that drives you. Once you have this clarity, we’ll be able to devise a marketing strategy and draw up a content program that will assist you to reach these goals.
The next step is knowing who your audience is – a crucial part of creating an outreach plan. One of the most essential aspects of building a community of supporters is to communicate regularly – always making sure that your vision is front and center. This may mean on-going direct mail campaigns, but should also involve a formalized social media strategy.
We’re as aware as you are that people are becoming less keen to part with their money. Millennials are earning less than their parents (adjusted for inflation) and economic conditions definitely curb spending. Even baby boomers are spending less than they did. With this in mind, you need to build relationships to persuade your supporters to become donors.
Relationships take time to nurture, and this is where we can help you build a chain of communication that educates and involves those on your mailing list. You want your action to turn into traction, and a great way to do this is to get people involved. Advocacy is a great way to do this (such as signing a petition), as is an integrated marketing campaign with a well-planned editorial and content calendar, and a powerful web-based solution.
