25. • Think about your curves – scientific (ask us for help!) or guestimate • Map your donors – and comms. What are your audience doing? • Where to focus your efforts (eg most reward for least effort, easiest to achieve, best results longer term?) • What data do you have or need? How to store and capture? • What content do you have or need? • And an answer to the question … What does it look like in your charity?
26. What’s stopping you from doing this already?
27. The idea of journeys is not new … …why aren’t they happening?
28. • Psychology of ‘free’ tools • E-mail is seen as cheap and therefore de-valued in comparison to other channels • The functionality of the available technology isn’t fully understood and the staff using the tech don’t always have access to budget • E-news becomes a task not an opportunity to start a journey • Lack of integration with other channels (social, direct mail, mobile, web) Reasons why journeys aren’t happening
