Lityx and Concord Direct have joined together to offer a free interactive webinar on how to improve your next fundraising program and increase ROI.

Nonprofits often face obstacles when it comes to fundraising. Delivering the right message to the right audience at the right time and in the right place is no easy task.

Can advanced analytics trump experience when it comes to fundraising campaigns? While this might not be your first trip around the fundraising block, it’s likely that without advanced analytics you’re not getting the most out of your fundraising efforts. Nonprofits that use advanced analytics double their performance, efficiencies, and productivity. Our upcoming webinar is a powerful illustration of how analytics can impact your programs.

In our webinar, we’ll simulate a typical fundraising campaign and compare that to a campaign that uses predictive analytics. As part of the audience, you’ll be able to suggest campaign decisions and learn how you can use the data that you’re already collecting to improve performance, productivity, and efficiencies to increase your return.
