Nonprofit Email Marketing: Connect. Engage. Activate.

Why has email become such a critical channel of communication for nonprofits? Organizations that interact with each constituent in terms that are relevant to him or her find it easier to cultivate affinity and support, and email offers these benefits like no other communication channel. Today’s donor spends more time online than at the kitchen table reading mail and expects personalized information that’s up-to-date and easy to consume. With Blackbaud email marketing solutions, organizations can send more relevant information more frequently with greater response, thanks to the platform’s cost effectiveness, flexibility, and measurability.

Email Marketing at a Glance:

Grow Subscribers

List churn can be the most challenging aspect of an email marketing program. It takes a reader next to no effort to block your messages or unsubscribe if they don’t like what they hear from you. Thanks to the ability to respect communication preferences and provide meaningful messages and engaging online content, Blackbaud’s customers’ lists grow by 30% each year, versus the average 30% decline reported by Forrester research.

Take advantage of these best practices to ensure you have an engaged and growing list.


Target Audiences

Email is most effective when its content and context is personalized. With Blackbaud, you can easily build segments, using any data you capture in your fundraising database, to better target your email messages. Response data then automatically flows back through to your database, allowing even better targeting on the next message.

Understand why true integration makes meaningful segmentation easier.

Online messages may be intended to convey the same information as traditional marketing pieces, but to be most successful, they should be tailored to their special channel. Blackbaud experts can help you create emails with the appropriate conversational tone and professional design that ensure your messages are read, forwarded, and acted on.
