The Fundraising Agency That Helps Nonprofits Grow

#91: How to acquire new donors online, with Jeff Giddens

Share This Post

So you want to find new donors online?

Then this is a foundational podcast episode for you to listen to.

We’re beginning our series on online new donor acquisition with a master of digital fundraising: Jeff Giddens from NextAfter.

In our chat, we get into: 

  • Why sending prospective donors to a donation page might not be effective if you want to actually get a first gift from someone 
  • Why trying to understand donors is a better strategy than trying to get them to understand your cause 
  • How to think about your new donor acquisition strategy using content offers
  • How to find, create and develop content offers prospective donors might actually want to download 
  • How to build an effective acquisition funnel 
  • How to drive traffic to your funnel using paid ads
  • The key metrics you should keep an eye on to begin testing and optimizing your acquisition funnel

Along the way, we also get into how direct mail—and even door to door fundraising!—can influence the way you think about new donor acquisition online.
