We can help your nonprofit squeeze the most out of its NationBuilder plan.
NationBuilder seems to cop a lot of flack for not being a flexible enough platform for small nonprofits to achieve their goals and strategies. In my opinion, the problem often starts with the assumption that you can afford a platform that will give you everything you want.
Truth is, if you have a tiny budget you’ll have to compromise somewhere, so when choosing the right platform pick the best one that achieves most of what you want, at a price you can afford. More often than not—given its affordable entry-point—you’ll pick NationBuilder. If you do, you’ll then need to revisit those strategies, learn exactly how to get the most from NationBuilder, and start using every feature it has to achieve your goals.
And that’s where we can help.
We’ve learnt the ins-and-outs of NationBuilder since they first launched in Australia back in 2012. We’ve used every page type (even Money Bomb), tried every People filter, know every liquid tag, have setup sophisticated path and tagging strategies, and built many integrations with their API to extend its features in commonly requested areas (MP Email tool, anyone?).
For what it’s worth we’re also a certified NationBuilder Architect, NationBuilder Developer and NationBuilder Expert.
The thing is, you don’t need a fancy theme or the best CRM to run an effective campaign or supporter funded organisation. Out of the box, NationBuilder will give you enough to get started right. What matters is knowing how to use your platform, effectively crafting your message and using data to drive your engagement strategy.
The only support from us you may need is a half day of training. That said, we can also help you build a custom theme or a supporter engagement strategy, but don’t be fooled into thinking this is necessary for you to succeed – it’s not.
What matters is that you are providing something meaningful to your supporters, and giving them the tools to engage with and donate to your work. And NationBuilder is perfectly sufficient to do this.
