How To Cultivate New Donors With Chatbots: Free & Easy-To-Use Apps For Fundraising (Recording)

Donors today want immediate responses to their inquiries, the convenience of one-click donations, gratitude for their donation and confidence their donation is being used for the purpose they gave it. Even slight friction or delay can cause donations to be postponed or spent elsewhere. 

In this nonprofit webinar recording, you will learn how to setup and automate digital donor communications that respond to these donor needs. 

You will learn the basics of how to configure an “interactive chat-bot” on your website and Facebook page with a workflow that answers your donors' frequently asked questions, shortens the cultivation cycle and solicits donations with an easy response. You will also learn how to create a workflow for automated text message campaigns and Facebook Messenger Ad Campaigns to move donors to their next gift.

  • How to focus the chatbot on specific fundraising objectives
  • How to match your workflow with donor desires and intent
  • How to draw a chatbot funnel for different channels
  • How to create a chatbot flow on your website and Facebook page to cultivate new prospects
