9 Tips to Help You Start and Maintain a Major or Legacy Giving Conversation

iMarketSmart

Before you can even get to ‘the ask’ you’ve got to start and maintain a conversation. Here are some pointers to do just that: Don’t show up and throw up. Right? That’s when a fundraiser does most of the talking while the donor politely listens to them spew facts and figures. It might make the fundraiser feel like an authority, but it rarely results in a gift. Don’t tell people what you want…ask them what they want.

Why Response Rates Don’t Matter.

iMarketSmart

It always frustrates me to hear fundraisers or their consultants concern themselves with vanity metrics like response rates for lead generation efforts. . Honestly, I’m tired of hearing it! Way too often, we (at MarketSmart) find ourselves being asked about our response rates resulting from our outreach efforts to our customers’ supporters. But, I wonder, “What difference does it really make if we garner a 1% response rate or 20%?”

7 ways to make sure your print designs win hearts and minds (not design awards)

iMarketSmart

Make the fonts at least 12 pt… 14 point is even better for older eyes. Even though you might feel that it looks chunky, remember, the printed items are for the donors, not you. Use mostly serif fonts, not sans serif like this. Serif fonts are much easier to read on paper. Sans serif fonts are easier to read online or on a smartphone/tablet. Make sure there is space between lines in the copy. Avoid putting copy blocks with long sentences and paragraphs in reverse text or various colors.

The High Cost of Undervaluing Gratitude

How to Plan an Open House

Donor target ask amounts offend me

iMarketSmart

I keep seeing software or wealth screening companies providing fundraisers with target ask amounts. I don’t get it. How on earth can a software provider or wealth screener (or, sometimes, even a prospect researcher) assume a ‘target ask amount’ without having had a single conversation with the donor? I find this offensive and I think your donors might too. And besides, wealth screening is rarely accurate since affluent supporters know how to hide their money.

Fear or fear not… a massive disruption in the fundraising industry? That is the question!

iMarketSmart

It seems like everyone is saying they are disrupting this or that these days. Lots of people wear it as a badge of honor whether they are really making change or not. They want to be seen as disruptors but usually, they’re just making noise. But then there’s me. Some people call me a disruptor. Others think I’m just making noise. And, then there are those that feel I’m just a huge pain in the ass!

Identity vs. Persona

In talking about donor identities , people will often say they’ve tried personas and they haven’t worked like they thought they would. Therefore, they aren’t going to invest more in seeking donor identities.
