Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) embarked on a transformative journey with Optimize Consulting to establish an impactful online fundraising program centered around prospecting. Our strategies brought in thousands of high-capacity donors and catalyzed YAL's shift from traditional direct mail to digital marketing in 2020.
Central to the approach was leveraging long-term strategies that respected YAL's brand identity. Optimize Consulting's online fundraising strategy intertwined storytelling and retargeting to maintain a top-of-mind presence, employing various tools and tactics for new donor conversion. The focus extended beyond initial donations, emphasizing upsells, automation, and email marketing to nurture ongoing support.
Optimize Consulting adopted HubSpot as the CRM and ESP to streamline operations and enhance email deliverability. HubSpot empowered the organization to map out the development process, design email automation, and efficiently engage, upgrade, and thank donors.
YAL faced challenges developing a robust online fundraising program for housefile and prospecting initiatives. Ensuring high-quality content delivery to donors and activists proved demanding, as did crafting unique funnels for recurring donor generation.
The prime goal was cultivating a pool of new donors while executing tailored funnels and upsells for recurring contributions. Optimize Consulting achieved this by securing cost-effective new donor acquisitions and developing a systematic process to elevate them into significant contributors, ranging from five to six figures.
