Creating awareness about the cause and getting mass support from the community can be challenging. Engage your audience and gain support for your cause by using the web and social media platform. Make your communications channel mobile friendly and reach wider audience. Promote some your organization’s goals and how supporting your cause impacts the community.
Mobile device penetration has reached over 80% in Canada and you will see a similar trend in your community. Give your audience a change to connect with you through their mobile device. Let them download your Mobile App so they can know more about your goals, accomplishment, community events and volunteer opportunities. Create a distribution list of your supporters and send them a push message for their support or to share an update. Where users are not app savvy, engage with them by opening text message communication and they can join your list by texting a keyword. It’s simple!
Two of the biggest challenges for nonprofits are communications and funding. Now that you have a database of your supporters, reach out to the community by sending push messages or text messages. Show them how can donate or pledge directly from their mobile devices. Setup donation in multiple denominations so that everyone can contribute. Engage with local business and promote their brand in your app. Post volunteer opportunities and let your supporters apply directly from the app.
