The New Formula: R + M = IR2
Here's a reason to keep reading: Millions of dollars in revenue are lost every year and in some cases simply left on the table because we're focused on the wrong end of the marketing formula.
Using statistics from a national commitment study across 50 brands in the nonprofit industry, the difference in giving from a low-commitment donor to a high-commitment donor was 130 percent. Based on these national statistics, the lowest-level committed donor had a three-year value of $85 compared to the highest level of commitment with $349. And with more than 50 percent of the donors surveyed falling below "high commitment" into the other three categories, it's easy to run the numbers on any size file to draw the conclusion that understanding the attitudes of your donors is the difference between losing money and raising money.
