Motivate your existing audience using email marketing
Research has shown that it can cost as much as ten times more to acquire new donors than to retain your existing ones. Tapping into your existing database of contacts using email marketing is the best way to make use of your resources. This is also a powerful tool for keeping your supporters updated on where their donation went and the impact it’s had. This makes donating a more tangible concept and can be a highly motivating factor for your audience.

Take advantage of Google Ad Grants
If you work in the charity sector, odds are you’ll have heard whispers about Google Ad Grants for not-for-profits but may not know much about what it entails and how to apply for it. The grant provides up to £7,500 per month of search advertising for not-for-profit organisations.
To qualify for Google Ad Grants your organisation must meet the following criteria:
- Your organisation must hold valid charity status in your country
- Be approved through the Ad Grants eligibility form
- Have a high-quality website that meets the Ad Grants website policy
If you’re interested in taking advantage of this offer, our specialist digital team can support you through the application process - as well as set up and manage your Google AdWords campaign.
With the use of this grant, it’s important to keep in mind there are limits on your Google Ads settings. There are strict requirements surrounding the performance of a Google Ad Grants account that must be met and advanced tracking needs to be incorporated for eligibility purposes.
