FAST TRACK PROGRAM. This is a fast track version of our six month, intensive Mentored Online Fundraising Program. This course uses exactly the same materials but doesn’t include the mentored consulting component. It does however, have a live facilitator who will review each of your assignments and make helpful comments. Two assignments per week for 12 weeks. You will develop a complete, well researched online fundraising campaign in this certificate program.
Here is what the schedule looks like if you average two assignments per week:
Syllabus: The step by step process. This Nonprofit Online Donations program is designed in a progression where each weekly module represents one sequential step for you to take in the process of campaign design and development. The assignments have real tools for you to download, print out, edit, and use as templates over and over again in launching new initiatives.
Week 1. You will have the first week to explore the website and course materials—and sneak a peek at the first assignments.
Week 2. Determine who your potential new donors are, what they are looking for, what you can offer them, and how they can find you:
Week 3. Email List Building. Capture Names: How to capture valuable new subscribers—and then send them newsletters that convert them into donors.
Week 4. Email List Building 2.
Week 5. Planning campaigns.
Week 6. Planning campaigns 2.
Week 7. Keywords and Simple Landing Pages: The importance of landing pages, keywords and conversions.
Week 8. Keywords and Simple Landing Pages 2.
Week 9. Email Newsletters. Romance your Subscribers.
Week 10. We’ve covered a lot of advanced territory over the past 4 to 5 weeks. Now it’s time to begin compiling what you’ve learned into a campaign. Hopefully, you saved all of the PDFs from the different assignments for your review.
Week 11. Tying it all together. You will prepare to launch and promote your first fundraising communication using templates that I provide.
Week 12. Launch your first new campaign!
