I'm outside



Do your donors feel like they're part of your fundraising progress or is your donation flow leaving them on the outside? Is your team accurately tracking the real-time progress of your marketing campaigns?


Revv's new feature-set does initiatives, goals, and thermometers the way power fundraisers have always dreamed out. Here's how:



1. You set both internal and external goal levels. External goals can automatically bump up higher if they are reached. 


Internal goals show your team how they are doing with fundraising or lead generation.


External goal levels show your donors how your fundraising campaigns or petition drives are going - and when multiple external goals are set it will automatically show a higher goal level if one is reached. You can even boost the amount raised to account for offline fundraising. 


 2. You can set goals for fundraising, petition signers, merchandise sales, total revenue, event signups and more!


3. POWER USER FEATURE: You define goal initiatives by UTM tags, pages, or globally to match your marketing campaigns.


Your various goals will only display on pages you set or the exact combination of UTM tags you define. This is extremely powerful as you build out marketing campaigns targeting different groups of donors with tailored asks and matching goals. 



 4. HIGH IMPACT: You can set goals for a donor individually. 


You can set a goal for each donor specifically that overrides the page's goal by using URL parameters. When the donor sees that they met or exceeded their personal goal they get a visual indicator! This is a much more advanced version of the "your suggested donation."

you need these

are you maximizing your donations?



I thought you'd be interested in knowing about these 10 new ways organizations are raising more money this cycle! Check out this list of must-have new and innovative features that are showing huge lift in donation amounts and conversions.



1. Apple Pay & Google Wallet Donations



Lightspeed donations! You need to be accepting the easiest form of payments for each device! Eliminating the credit card fields for users: Apple Pay for iOS, Google Wallet for Android, and browser request for Safari, Chrome etc. makes your conversion rate increase dramatically - especially on mobile!


2. Donor Covers Your Donation Fees


Chances are your donors would be more than happy to cover minimal transaction fees to ensure 100% of their gift makes it to your cause. This is a win-win for you and your donor, who now knows that their donation will have the maximum impact for your cause. Organizations have seen up to 80% of donors electing to cover transaction fees when presented with the option.


3. Stores & On-Demand Merchandise



Merchandise is proving to be a MAJOR donation and lead generation booster. Pointing your donors to a storefront with branded merchandise is probably something you want - but it's too complicated to setup and manage.


Revv offers a no-risk on demand solution with no upfront investment and a free storefront. Revv manages all fulfillment and customer service.

4. Petitions Forms & Surveys


Chances are you are using petitions at the top of your funnel. Creating custom petitions, forms, and surveys has never been easier. Revv account holders can sign petitions with one-click and we've included a feature that automatically pre-fills user information on redirects to donation pages - increasing conversions.


5. Countdowns & Shotclocks



Urgency works! Make sure your donors know that time is running out for a specific deadline. Shotclocks start counting down when the donor arrives on your donation page or upsell. Use this to reward the donor with a free hat, sticker, or name on a specific donor roll if they take action quickly. 



6. SMS Reply To Donate using P2P!



Peer to Peer Text Messaging is the breakout new star of political campaigns and direct response marketing. 90% of recipients open text messages within 5 minutes! Donors can now reply to Opn Sesame's P2P text messages and donate seamlessly. Revv has the most advanced Text to Donate and validates the donor using their secure account without any effort!
