Donor-Driven Marketing Approach

One of the biggest marketing and fundraising pain points among nonprofits is lacking an understanding of the audience they are trying to market to and engage with the most.

Putting time and energy into creating a donor-focused marketing approach is something that will prove to be worthwhile. A donor-focused marketing approach will help drive more revenue and create an improved supporter experience.


Nonprofit Persona Development

Persona development is where you combine the qualitative inputs with quantitative inputs and create this fictional representation of who your organization is marketing to. Break it down into your primary, secondary, and tertiary personas and gear your efforts to hyper-market to each audience more effectively. 

Your marketing and fundraising efforts will yield to be much more impactful when you have a deep understanding of who your audience is and how they will react to what you are presenting to them.
