Author: PDXTech4Good



Amy Sample Ward presented ideas from her new book, "Social Change Anytime Everywhere: How to implement online multichannel strategies to spark advocacy, raise money and engage your community."

Drawing from her deep experience working with technology for nonprofits, Amy showed how organizations are successfully integrating online multichannel efforts into their work, and how you can craft an “Anytime Everywhere” campaign to achieve your nonprofit or social change goals and objectives.

Published in 2013, "Social Change Anytime Everywhere" has received rave reviews from media and readers alike. Coauthors Allyson Kapin and Amy Sample Ward describe in a readable and highly practical style how organizations can effectively plan and implement online multichannel strategies of “Anytime Everywhere” to advocate for their causes, raise money and engage more deeply with their communities. The book is available from Amazon, Powell's, and an online ebook can be downloaded for patrons of Multnomah County Library.

Amy Sample Ward is an author and speaker, and works with nonprofits of all sizes around the world to use technology to enhance their community impact. She is the author of a highly respected blog on nonprofit technology, and somehow finds time for her day job as CEO of NTEN (the Nonprofit Technology Network). Amy is also a former community organizer for NetSquared, having supported local NetSquared groups around the world.

8 Steps to create a multichannel campaign plan. @AmyRSWard    @RadCampaign      

Creating A Multichannel Campaign 1. Identify Short-Term And Long-Term Goals. Solving World Hunger?           NO! @AmyRSWard     Raising $25K to support local soup kitchen to distribute 300 meals to homeless people in DC in Dec.?             YES!    @RadCampaign      

Creating a Multichannel Campaign Example: What goals will we achieve by raising $25,000 for the local soup kitchen?” Goal One: To illustrate that homelessness has risen 25% in our city over the last year, resulting in a rising demand for our free meals and job training services. We want donors to understand that every night there are lines of hundreds of hungry people outside of our door waiting for a hot meal. Goal Two: For every $50 donated, 25 homeless people will get a nutritious dinner for one week at our soup kitchen, beginning next week. Goal Three: For every $25 donated, our soup kitchen will provide computertraining classes to 10 people homeless people we are serving for one month. Goal Four: To tell the personal story of a soup kitchen volunteer who has benefitted from eating regularly at our soup kitchen and participating in our jobtraining program. @AmyRSWard    @RadCampaign      

Creating a Multichannel Campaign 2. Identify Your Target Do you have an advocacy target? @AmyRSWard     Who are you supporters? Are they: •  College students •  Parents of toddlers •  Environmentalists •  Insert your supporters here    @RadCampaign

Creating a Multichannel Campaign Examples of Core Messages Example One: Pink is Pretty, Breast Cancer is Not – a campaign by the National Coalition of Breast Cancer aimed at deconstructing all of the pink corporatization of breast cancer. Example Two: The Golden Boob Awards: Exposing The Biggest Boobs Of All - a campaign aimed at exposing bogus products that claimed they could better detect changes in breasts or organizations that made false claims about getting/ curing breast cancer. @AmyRSWard    @RadCampaign

What to consider for rolling out your multichannel campaign plan? @AmyRSWard    @RadCampaign      

Roll-Out A Multichannel Campaign Launch Your Email Series Email 1: Tell the story of the overall campaign, lay out the campaign goals and the impact donors can expect to see from their action. Email 2: Update people on the campaign’s progress. Remind people of the story you shared in the previous appeal. Reinforce the message that you still need their help to make an impact and meet the campaign goals. Email 3: The final message is another update and one last ask for help to truly make that tangible impact and meet your goals. @AmyRSWard    @RadCampaign      

Roll-Out a Multichannel Campaign •  Follow Your Campaign Calendar •  Tailor Messaging To Each Channel •  Segment Your List •  Conduct A/B Testing •  Promote Your Campaign •  Measure the Results @AmyRSWard    @RadCampaign      

Introduce yourself to the person sitting next to you.

What programs, initiatives or campaigns does your organization have coming up in the next 6 months that you think would make a good multichannel campaign? Pick one to focus on for this exercise. >> Brainstorm three short term and long term objectives for this initiative.

>> Identify your target audiences. Who is your advocacy target? Who has the power to create the change you are seeking? Who are the target audiences you seek to organize?

>> List 3-4 different actions you want people to take. These actions should start out as an easy action – such as signing an online petition or pledge. As the campaign unfolds and people take action, what additional actions can people take to stay involved that requires more commitment.

>> Brainstorm ideas to promote this campaign across multiple channels. What kind of content will you need? Does it already exist and can be edited and tailored for different channels? Or do you need to create the content from scratch?

>> Identify the metrics you’ll use to evaluate the campaign. What does success look like? How you will track metrics across different online channels? What metrics can you use in real time to know if you’re on track?
