  • Your #GivingTuesday To-Do List
    Wednesday Nov 2, 2016

    #GivingTuesday is less than one month away! [That’s Tuesday, November 29th, in case you missed it!] I’m already getting emails and tweets reminding me to “save the date”... are you ready?

    Earlier this week, Daniel and I shared some tips for how to maximize #GivingTuesday with the finalists of the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s Spark Prize, who will each receive a match of up to $5,000 for their donations. This is part of their new local giving campaign, Brooklyn Gives, created to encourage Brooklyn residents and small businesses to come together to support some of Brooklyn’s most outstanding community-based nonprofits.

    As part of the training, we offered a week-by-week list of how to plan #GivingTuesday. So if you still haven’t started your preparations, don’t fret. There’s still time and lots of hope!

    Week 1 (Oct 31-Nov 6)

    • Brainstorm your big idea/approach
    • Set your goal(s)
      • # of donors
      • # of actions
      • Dollars raised
      • Average gift
      • New donors (general and/or monthly)
      • New social followers

    Week 2 (Nov 7-13)

    • Outline your plan

      • Who will you target?
      • Why should people participate?
      • What channels will you use?
      • When will you send out messages?
      • Who will be the sender or signer(s)?
    • Begin producing content

    Week 3 (Nov 14-20)

    • Finish content production

      • Finalize copy and design; get approval
      • Code emails
      • Test online giving
    • Get staff and board excited
      • Tell them what you are doing
      • Ask them to participate

    Week 4 (Nov 21-27)

    • Schedule content
    • Share gratitude during Thanksgiving
    • Preview your #GivingTuesday campaign as part of other communications

    Week 5 (Nov 28-Dec 4)

    • Send out your appeals
    • Keep supporters posted on updates
    • Test "boosting posts" or online advertising
    • Raise lots of money on Nov 29!
    • Report back on results and say thank you!
    Good luck, and if you’d like to dig into some more #GivingTuesday pearls of wisdom, read these posts:

  • 29 Billion Connected Devices Projected; Video Leads The Way
    Tuesday Jun 13, 2017

    More things are getting connected, which is driving more digital traffic.

    Mobile video traffic alone is expected to grow by 50% a year for the next five years, according to a new global study.

    By that time, mobile video traffic will account for most (75%) of all mobile data traffic, according to the annual Ericsson Mobility Report.

    Global mobile data traffic is projected to increase to eight times its current level by 2022. That will be the equivalent of a single subscriber streaming high definition video continuously for 4 million years, as one of the more interesting tidbits in the Ericsson report. It also would be the equivalent of 31 billion hours of continuous high definition video streaming.

    While video will lead the way, mobile data traffic overall involves numerous other activities. Here’s the projected annual growth rate of each activity until 2022:

    • 50% -- Video
    • 38% -- Social networking
    • 34% -- Audio
    • 32% -- Software download
    • 22% -- Web browsing
    • 10% -- File sharing

    As yet another data stat, in 2022, monthly mobile data traffic per active smartphone in North America will be reach a whopping 26 GB.

    The latest forecast is for 29 billion connected devices by 2022, of which about 18 billion will be related to the Internet of Things.

    Connected IoT devices include connected cars, machines, sensors, point-of-sales terminals, consumer electronics and wearables.

    In the world of mobile, there now are more subscriptions for smartphones than for basic phones, with the majority (55%) being smartphones, which also accounted for 80 of mobile phones sold in the first quarter of this year.

    The lengthy study is filled with interesting stats. For example:

    • At the current rate of mobile broadband growth, 95% of the world’s population will have network coverage by 2022
    • More than 1 million new mobile broadband subscribers are being added every day through the end of 2022
    • There were 240 million new mobile broadband subscriptions in the first quarter alone
    • At the end of last year, there were 400 million IoT devices with cellular connections
    • There will be 1.5 billion IoT cellular connections by 2022

    The IoT train has long left the station.

  • The Must-Do First Step in Creating a Profitable Fundraising Plan
    By Gail Perry - Friday Jun 23, 2017

    A fundraising assessment. A development office audit. A SWOT of your fundraising program.

    What are these things?

    They're the first step to creating a killer fundraising strategy that can unlock your fundraising potential.

    No kidding.

    Before you can create a strategy and a plan of execution, you have to step back and assess where you are.

    This is time to calmly, dispassionately take stock, examine what you have to work with, and evaluate how well things are working.

    A fundraising assessment gives you the opportunity to look at your fundraising program analytically.

    Without emotion. Without drama. No more crisis mode fundraising!

    A Fundraising Assessment can tell you a lot.

    • You can identify current successes and where you can build them up.
    • You can identify where the easy money might be that you are missing.
    • You can identify unproductive time wasters like certain fundraising events, that are not worth the trouble.

    5 Steps to a Thoughtful Fundraising Assessment

    1. Pull together your data.

    What does your data tell you?

    What are the trends?

    How about the numbers of current donors  - are they trending up or down?

    How about your donor renewal rates and donor attrition?

    Event attendees? How about the number of donors in your annual gift clubs?

    What about major gifts? Are you tracking Major Gift visits and asks?

    You know what I love about data? The numbers don't really lie. They are pretty straightforward, in black and white.

    Always start with the data when you want to make a plan. 

    2. Ask the tough questions.

    When you do a fundraising assessment you have permission to ask politically awkward questions.

    You can ask Cage Rattling Questions like:

    Can we be honest about what's working and what's not working?

    Are we wiling to ditch unproductive programs?

    You can get an entire list of "tough questions" to ask about your fundraising strategy in last week's post here.

    3. Assess each fundraising program's current results.

    Review all your various fundraising programs - mailings, events, major gifts, grants, corporate and foundation support, digital strategies. What results are you getting?

    • What's working well? What's working not so well?
    • What trends are on the rise?
    • What strategies are not paying off like they used to?

    You should be able to see where your opportunities might be if you shift your focus.

    You might be able to add resources somewhere and receive a significant jump up in revenue.

    Don't forget to assess other aspects that impact your fundraising success:

    It can be fun - and enlightening - to step back and evaluate everything.  Include your board in this discussion! 

    4. Identify your fundraising challenges.

    Yes, challenges are a part of life.

    If you want to know how much you can raise, you must be willing to acknowledge what's not working so well.

    • Are there people who are impediments to good fundraising?
    • What's NOT working? Where are you wasting time?
    • Are you losing too many donors each year?
    • Have you cut your fundraising budget and staff but not your fundraising expectations?
    • Is your staff totally run ragged?
    • Is your signature event losing steam?

    Just be realistic.

    Please.

    Wistful thinking is not going to raise your money!

    Being realistic will lead to smart decisions and planning.

    Being realistic will help you sleep at night too.

    Always try to turn your challenges into your opportunities!

    5. Identify your fundraising opportunities.

    Every organization has special opportunities. What are yours?

    Perhaps you have:

    • A great location in town.
    • A cause that is suddenly very popular.
    • Were you recently in the news?
    • A very popular gala or event.
    • A new CEO or leader.
    • New internet or social media talent joining your team.
    • Is your board suddenly interested in helping?

    Take a look around. You might find some surprises you can play up and run with.

    Sometimes amazing results can happen by building on opportunities.

    Can you form a coalition? Can you build on key relationships?

    Be alert. Be strategic. Be opportunistic, even.

    Maybe a key relationship can offer opportunities to catapult your organization to a whole new level.

    Pull it all together in your Fundraising Assessment.

    • How effective is our current fundraising plan?
    • Where can we increase your fundraising revenue streams?
    • Where do we need to focus time, energy and resources?
    • Where can we increase our efficiency?

    Bottom Line: What's holding YOU back from raising big money?

    I can help you answer these questions with my Highly Profitable Fundraising Planning Toolkit.

    You have a template to perform your own SWOT and Fundraising Assessment of your own program.

    You'll have a 10-Point set of checklists to help you determine where your best opportunities are.

    I'll help you step back from the weeds and look at how you can raise money in new and better ways.

    When you create a smart, strategic Fundraising Plan for the coming year, you'll be organized. You'll be happier. And your organization will raise more money!
