2022 & Beyond: Future-Proofing Your Peer-to-Peer Program

We’ve all gotten pretty good at flexing our P2P pivot muscle over the past 18 months. In person fundraising programs were shifted to virtual. Many of us just cancelled our P2P events (with fingers crossed that you could make it happen in 2021). All of that pivoting and changing and rethinking took a lot out of us. Can’t we just go back to how we did things in 2017?
 
No one knows what the future holds, but I think it’s fair to say that we are most definitely not going back to 2017 anytime soon. But there are some practical steps you can take right now to level set your P2P program for whatever lies ahead. Join Maureen Wallbeoff, Nonprofit Digital Strategist & Technology Coach, as she gives you a simple framework you can use to evaluate your existing P2P program from top to bottom, set new goals, and make things just plain easier for your participants, donors, and staff.

Peer-to-Peer Email Communications Workshop Week 1: Strategy

Email communications can make or break a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. In this session, you’ll learn the elements of successful email communications strategies, plus best practices, real-world examples, and what to do if (and when) things don’t work as planned.

Accelerate Your Impact: How to Use Authentic Video Stories from Real People to Advance Your Mission

Who is the hero of your organization's story? Hint: it's not the organization. To generate more donation revenue, keep your community engaged, and accelerate your impact, you need to lift up the authentic voices of the real people at the heart of your organization - your fundraisers, volunteers, donors, and supporters. Leading organizations are achieving this with real video content from real people.
 
Join Joel Alsup, Supervisor of Creative Media Services at ALSAC / St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Joel Resnik, Chief Revenue Officer at Gather Voices, for a discussion about how to use peer-to-peer storytelling and user-generated video to accelerate your impact. They’ll discuss:
  • The communication preferences and digital marketing trends that are reshaping the future of fundraising for mission-driven organizations
  • How St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital incorporates peer-to-peer storytelling into their strategy
  • The three simple steps you need to know to get started with user-generated video

How any Nonprofit can use a Mobile App for Instant Communication

Smartphones have become our de-facto communication device…we look at them nearly 100x each day and rely upon the instant notifications for important news, information and updates.  Now, nonprofit organizations of any size can also communicate with their families, volunteers, staff and supporters directly on their smartphones quickly and inexpensively…based upon who they are and even where they are.
 
In this session, we’ll present:
 
1) A Case Study: We will present a Case Study for how Guardian Angel Basset Rescue (GABR), used an App for their 2021 ‘Waddle’ event.  During the event, GABR used an App to:
  1. Establish a permanent mobile based connection with supporters
  2. Communicate with event participants who were physically at the event
  3. Add value to sponsors via additional & geo-based exposure
  4. Communicate instantly with volunteers during the event
The App enabled event day and ongoing communication that was not possible via email or social.
 
2) An App overview where you will learn:
  • How Apps-based communication is different than email, social or texting
  • How to add value to your sponsors via location-based messaging
  • How to connect with specific groups in your community
  • Open & Click rate for Notifications vs Emails
  • % of people who opt-in for notifications
  • % of web traffic comes from Phones & Apps
  • % of time on Mobile Apps vs Mobile Web
  • How fast notifications are received
  • How any NPO can use an App quickly, easily and affordably

Peer-to-Peer Email Communications Workshop Week 3: Calls to Action

Email communications can make or break a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. In this session, you’ll learn how to choose the right subject lines, calls to actions, discounts, and incentives to get your audiences to take the actions you want them to take.
 
This is the third of five sessions in this step-by-step workshop series led by an expert in the nonprofit tech industry and nonprofit professionals who have been through peer-to-peer campaigns and are ready to share lessons learned. You can attend any of the sessions, but we recommend attending them all for optimum results.

Why your event needs a brand (or re-brand) – And how to do one

Virtual events?
Return to in-person (are we there yet?)
Hybrid events?
…oh, my!
 
It's all been a bit rough these past eighteen months and it often feels harder and harder to gain attention and participation for your event in this confusing and complex peer-to-peer fundraising landscape.
 
Differentiating your event program is critical to your peer-to-peer program's future.
 
It might just be time for an event branding intervention, and a good look at how your event's brand will support future peer-to-peer fundraising. A re-brand might even be the key.
 
In this stop-and-think session, Taylor Shanklin, branding strategist, will guide you through a branding journey.
 
You will walk away with a methodology and tools to:
- Build a stellar brand story for your event
- Re-brand an event
- Differentiate yourself and standout
- Create an event brand guideline for your nonprofit

It pays to thank – how thanking can double your acquisition efforts

Saying "thank you" is something we say hundreds if not thousands of times a month, it's good manners, yet when it comes to saying "thank you" to fundraisers we miss an opportunity, or worse still do not thank them at all. In this session we explore how the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention took the human to human approach to thank their fundraisers and the amazing results they say from doing this.
