This article focuses more on digital marketing for nonprofits, how we use our audience personas to develop content that motivates our supporters, and how we can measure that engagement to make sure our limited resources get spent in the right places.
Fifteen years ago, a nonprofit could survive without a website by doing a direct mail piece once or twice a year or just relying on walk-in traffic and a few in-person events. You’ve probably already come to the realization that those days are over and the world is relying more heavily (and sometimes completely) on virtual outreach. As such, we’re all competing for what seems to be a more limited pool of attention. Today, you need to keep your audience engaged or risk losing them to another cause. The nonprofit ladder of engagement is the tool you need to find those supporters and keep them coming back for more.
This is the first of two articles focused on the nonprofit ladder of engagement, what it is, and how your nonprofit can use it to find supporters and turn them into dedicated advocates for your organization.

At first glance, you’d think that just by posting on a few social networks your nonprofit could reach more people than any other marketing method and your entire year’s worth of fundraising could be generated in one day. But we all know it’s just not that simple. It’s the reason that one of the questions we get asked most often by nonprofits is how can they increase engagement with the content they post on social media networks.
