Facebook Marketing Bootcamp- Build an Ad Campaign to Grow Your List

August 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm UTC-5

Direct email outreach is the best way to drive online donations and to spur supporters to engage in online advocacy. As we know, email appeals are also easy to create and they cost a lot less than direct mail. 

But your fundraising success with email depends on a healthy email list.  Your first goal should be to make your email list net positive — that is, you should be getting more signups than unsubscribes each month. Facebook has been proven to be a invaluable tool to find readers that look like your exisitng audience and your existing email lists. These webinars will show you how to create an ad campaign that gives you the best opportunity to build your list.
