Is your investment in marketing technology as vital as your investment in CRM?

About this session

Supporters, members, fundraisers, volunteers, beneficiaries, service users – whatever your terms for the people and organisations you engage with, one thing is for sure – the way they communicate, consume, engage and collaborate in 2024 is increasingly digital, increasingly mobile, and happening across a myriad of digital and social channels.

What are your choices as regards digital marketing technology solutions, and what does this mean for your other business systems and data? How does your organisation evolve to ensure you remain relevant to the people that matter to you most? This session will explore the ever-changing world of digital marketing technology, and feature stories and experiences from non-profits who have embraced these tools successfully.

What will attendees gain from attending this session?

  • An overview of the digital marketing technology landscape, solutions and suppliers working with the non-profit sector.
  • Observations as to how digital marketing tech is being deployed alongside Customer Data Platforms, CRM solutions etc.
  • An insight into the cultural challenges associated with the adoption and deployment of modern digital marketing platforms.
  • An opportunity to discuss your own charity’s challenges with peers within the sector, across a round table.
  • And as always… enjoy all the cake you can eat (fruit and other options are provided also)!
