How to Get More Email Engagement (Based On Data) with Abby Jarvis

Julia Claire Campbell Email, Fundraising, Marketing, Nonprofits, Podcast

Having an effective email program is an important part of building an engaged community.  48% of donors prefer to receive updates and appeals via email.

But accurate data about nonprofit email performance has historically been hard to come by—especially for small to midsize nonprofits—and that makes it hard to gauge your own campaigns’ performance.

That all changes with a new sector report, The Nonprofit Email Report: Data-Backed Insights for Better Engagement.

My guest on this episode is Abby Jarvis, Senior Content Marketing Manager for Neon One. To get the extensive data for this report, they evaluated 37,472 email campaigns sent by their clients and identified key email benchmarks broken down by organization size. They include data for small and large nonprofits as well as the average of all emails sent. In the report, you will find data on average list sizes, open rates, and click-through rates for all three of our size cohorts, along with data-backed insights your team can actually use.

In this episode, Abby and I discuss:

  • Tips for improving your email campaigns’ performance
  • Words and phrases that boost engagement
  • An analysis of the most engaging email of 2022
  • Practical strategies for creating compelling emails
  • Expert advice from industry thought leaders
  • Nonprofit-specific email performance benchmarks
