*Editors Note: This article uses language that appears targeted towards corporate businesses; however the advice given is equally beneficial to the non profit sector- the terms “consumer” and “donor” can be used interchangeably. 

 

 

Learn how to narrow the social network field and target the right prospects by partnering with lead generation providers.

 

Social networking sites captured headlines in 2007 for their tremendous popularity among consumers of all ages -- and as an emerging channel for leading brands to reach niche communities with highly targeted ads and offers.

 

Indeed, the advertising industry began to wake up to the fact that social media is simply another form of publishing. Whether print, online or broadcast, the ad-supported model is how media is brought to the masses, and consumers are accustomed to advertising regardless of the format.

 

Research shows, in fact, that consumers are not just tolerant of advertising in online environments -- they want to be marketed to as long as ads and offers are targeted to their interests and specific preferences.

Online Donors Seen Wanting Ease, Emotional Link
A New Study Conducted By Convio
http://www.philanthropyjournal.org

Most wealthy U.S. donors give online but nonprofits often miss opportunities to connect with donors, a new study says.

Eight in 10 wealthy donors who give an average of almost $11,000 a year to charity make some of their donations online, says the report by Convio, Sea Change Strategies and Edge Research.

And more than half prefer giving online to more traditional fundraising methods, says "The Wired Wealthy: Using the Internet to Connect with Your Middle and Major Donors," which analyzed the online behaviors and preferences of 3,000 donors to 23 large nonprofits.
