LOS ANGELES, June 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MobileCause, the leading provider of cloud based fundraising solutions for nonprofits, has released, "The 2015 Complete Mobile Strategy For Fundraisers Ebook" and "The 2015 Mobile Stats for Fundraisers Infographic". Through best practices, statistics and useful tips, these free resources help nonprofit organizations gain a crucial understanding of the different ways that mobile technology can strengthen their fundraising efforts. To date, these resources have been downloaded by more than 2500 of the top nonprofit leaders in the US.
A common worry for many nonprofit organizations is finding ways to raise more money at a lower cost, while saving time and resources. Adopting a mobile strategy and utilizing cloud based solutions for crowdfunding, online giving, event fundraising, and mobile communication can mitigate those concerns and allow them to better focus on fulfilling their mission.
Topics covered in these resources include:
Mobile numbers – The most important record in a nonprofit's database
Mobile search – How most donors learn more about nonprofits
Text messaging – The only way to ensure your messages are read
Email – Read on smartphones more than computers
Social media – Where donors are spending most of their time online
Apps – Add value to the smartphone experience
Videos and photos – Build awareness and momentum
Event reminders – Increase participation
"The goal of this ebook and infographic is to help nonprofits effectively engage and retain donors and supporters via their smartphones," stated Jeremy Koenig, MobileCause Director of Marketing. "When 95% of American adults own a cell phone, 81% of which are smartphones, and messages sent out via mobile are opened almost 100% of the time, it stands to reason that nonprofits working without a mobile strategy are missing out on donor, volunteer and staff engagement opportunities and are very likely losing donations."
Important mobile statistics:
53% of emails are read on smartphones
60% of internet searches happen on smartphones
65% of social media traffic is on smartphones
72% of web page views are on smartphones
88% of smartphones use apps everyday
99% of text messages are read
These resources also explain that as people often change their mailing and email address, their mobile number typically remains the same and is the anchor that keeps them connected to organizations year after year.
