Behavioral Economics refers to a method of economic analysis that applies psychological insights into human behavior to explain economic decision-making. The use of this science in fundraising is a hot topic within the nonprofit community.

Through the use of scientific theories and availability of advanced measurement tools, nonprofits can be more efficient and effective than ever before at making each dollar invested towards garnering more fundraising count. Unfortunately, many nonprofit professionals aren’t aware of the science behind what makes people take action or not, and many aren’t fluent in the tools they need to know if their fundraising campaigns are effective or not, leaving them unable to make the right decisions and use their budgets most wisely.

This virtual workshop (Live on 9/20/18, then available OnDemand) leads nonprofit professionals through the science of what really triggers humans to take action (e.g. donate, follow, sign-up) on behalf of nonprofits’ initiatives. It includes an educational portion to first teach audience members about scientific theories available to them to harness and then focuses on actually implementing and measuring these theories in practice.

They harnessed the idea of dumping cold water on one’s head, not so much as a fundraiser, but as an awareness […]

Why Do Nonprofits Need Marketing Automation?

Trigger a series of timed welcome emails to a donor after the first time they give. Test two different subject lines with a small group, then automatically have the winning subject line be used in the email to the full group of recipients. Create an email once, but have it send […]
