Not for profit organisations have faced insurmountable challenges in recent months. Most of them are learning the hard way that they need to modernise how they engage with their stakeholders across multiple touchpoints.
The current global climate has made it difficult for organisations to manage new supporters and keep up with their fundraising efforts, particularly those that depend heavily on in-person engagement. Data from the Global Online Fundraising Report reveal numerous missed opportunities with supporter outreach. For instance, emails to new subscribers are few and far in between, so organisations fail to keep them engaged and take further action. Additionally, very few of these emails are personalised, often lacking warmth and human touch.
Marketing Cloud for Not for Profit Organisations
To address these issues, Salesforce recently launched Marketing Cloud for Nonprofits, a platform designed specifically to aid not for profit organisations and efficiently create personalised experiences for email marketing.
Features and benefits
The numerous features of Marketing Cloud for Nonprofit give users access to predefined templates they can utilise to create and deliver email campaigns to subscribers, volunteers, donors, and other stakeholders.
It is also integrated with Salesforce.org Nonprofit Success Pack, which lets users provide data-driven and personalised outreach and segment audiences to automatically create personalised email content around their subscribers’ interests, giving history, engagement, and more insight to customised to their recipients’ preferences, so they feel more connected to the organisation’s mission.
Not for profits are also given access to the full suite of Salesforce’s Marketing Cloud and integration with Google Analytics to help improve campaign performance and ROI. Access to insights means they are able to drive engagement and campaign performance, donor conversion, and giving performance.
Through the platform, Salesforce is also giving not for profit organisations affordable Marketing Cloud implementation assistance from select members of their vast consulting partner community, including AFDigital. We have committed our support to the platform to help users accelerate fundraising, events, and engagement.
Lastly, users are given access to Trailhead, Salesforce’s comprehensive online learning platform so they can easily learn embedded content and a setup wizard to aid them in deploying the template they choose and campaigns they want to launch.
