The success of your gifts in wills programme depends on the tracking of rich data and having the ability to measure the performance outcomes of the programme. You may be generating lots of interest in your gifts in wills program. In fact, you are likely producing a mountain of leads through surveys, direct mail appeals, your organisation’s website, and through other sources. But, where are you putting the data and what are you doing with the data once it is stored?

Well developed and executed marketing plans are not worth the time they take to create them without a plan for data management.

Join us for this webinar presented by Stephen Mally FFIA CFRE from FundraisingForce.

In this webinar, you will hear learn:

  • Best practices in planning for a bequest marketing effort.
  • CRM configuration to allow you to track appropriate Gifts in Wills data.
  • Demographic and relational data which matters and how to track it.
  • Common components to track to ensure a proper journey for your Gifts in Wills supporters.
  • Pipeline reporting which measures and offers clues for next steps
