As remote work and health safety remains top of mind, connecting with donors is harder than ever before. There are only so many calls one can make. But there is another way to stay top of mind and keep donors and prospects interested, informed and engaged in the work of your nonprofit.
Learn from a panel of experts how highly-targeted and relatively inexpensive digital marketing techniques can make your traditional development tools more effective by connecting directly with your donors.
Our session will also cover how targeted social media advertising and geo-targeting can boost your direct mail and email marketing response and drive donations all year long. We'll even take a look under the hood to discuss how Facebook and Google Analytics should shape your donor outreach plans and your website.
