Building Loyalty through Engagement

How do you build loyalty with your constituents? Do you have a single interaction point where you can say “this person is now loyal”, or do you have a full engagement flow planned to continually communicate with your audience, building trust and loyalty at each step of their journey with your organization? Every day, more nonprofits are competing for the attention and support of your constituents, so it’s even more important to build a long-term relationship that grows from first interaction through a lifetime of support.

Mobile Giving: Does it matter to your nonprofit?

MobileCause - Cash In HandFor generations, the most common form of mobile giving was the donation basket at church, a checkout counter, or in front of your favorite store around the holidays. It made perfect sense – ask the public to donate a dollar or drop in their spare change while you have a moment of their attention in front of their peers. Beyond that, there really wasn’t much else. Clearly the world has changed, and the way people live and give has evolved into a much more diverse field of opportunity for fundraisers. There’s an interesting underlying truth that hasn’t changed, though: Effective fundraisers are the ones who make it easy to donate at the moment a constituent is ready to give. At a fundraising event, in the end-of-year email campaign, or during a crisis campaign, the fewer barriers there are for a constituent to be able to act on their desire to help your cause the more revenue you will earn.
