Mobile-ize! How to Use Texting to Maximize Your Donor-Base and Scale Relationships
We have long been looking for ways to have direct 1:1 conversations with our supporters and donors. As it is becoming increasingly difficult to connect with your audience, we return back to the power of messaging. Will our donors of the future be answering the phone? Responding to email? Opening direct mail? How do we stay relevant and cut through the noise? Whether it’s renewal campaigns, year-end giving, or reactivating lapsed donors, text messaging allows your entire database to be treated like a major donor. Come learn and see the data on how to have personalized conversations, at scale!
- How can I integrate text into my direct marketing strategy?
- What is the data showing about peer to peer text?
- How can I continue to reach my older demographic while building my donors of the future?
