How can we find a user-friendly way of creating templates for serial letters and other mass communication? Is it possible to integrate CiviCRM with open-source online applications to facilitate the creation of office templates for our users?
This has been bothering us for some time, because many of our users find it hard to set up and work with templates in HTML format. So we started a proof of concept to check possible options… and we found an answer!
So you’ve got that perfect donation page, you’ve grouped your nonprofit’s audience into three neat segments, and you’re announcing your latest fundraising campaign via your social media channels.
But do you have the perfect automated email marketing system to keep in touch with your new donors and reach out to prospective contributors? Here’s what you need to know about CiviCRM to help you ace the email marketing campaign you’re dreaming of.
Just because your nonprofit's email communications are interesting to you (the person who most likely created them!) doesn't mean they will be interesting to your community. Is your call to action clear? Is your imagery inspiring and connected to your content?
Remove the guesswork from your email marketing strategy by using CiviCRM's A/B email testing feature.
Through A/B testing you can evaluate:
Your nonprofit doesn't have just one fundraising strategy. You have many. Think events, donor letters and appeals, e-newsletter blasts, planned giving, and capital campaigns. Each of these strategies typically targets a specific segment of your community, even if the funds raised impact the same budget line.
I've had a few requests from clients recently with queries around updating contact details and permissions with the new GDPR data protection legislation coming into force in Europe in May.
As a result I've developed two very simple extensions which I'd like to share:
This extension provides a simple UI under the contact summary via Actions->Contact Checksum.
When opened a simple UI is displayed with information and example links to use in emails when sending personalised / "update your details" links from CiviCRM.
During the month of November, we made a concerted effort to stabilize the CiviCRM-Mosaico extension -- addressing several bugs, installation issues, missing features, and testing processes. I'm happy to announce a new beta releases of the Mosaico and FlexMailer extensions for CiviCRM. The updates include ~160 commits from ~15 contributors.
