How to power your digital fundraising and why email still dominates

Monday 1 July, 13:20-14:00 in the Fountain Room (Ground Floor)

This session will look at how you can effectively acquire new supporters and donor prospects online through exploring the power of action as part of your donor recruitment strategy as well as unlocking the real lifetime value of an opted-in email address to an organisation.

It will focus on the future of online acquisition, email fundraising, why social is a powerful tool to help re-engage newly acquired prospects and why email is still king for charity marketers. This will all be brought to life through charity case studies of supporter recruitment campaigns, tested supporter journeys, best practice and conversion results.
