Scott Goodstein

In the plenary session, "Digital Advocacy: What Nonprofits Can Learn From Obama," at the first International Fundraising eConference from May 12 to 14, Scott Goodstein compared the benefits of different communications channels as they relate to the fundraising/organizing success of the Obama campaign.

The bonuses of e-mail marketing, according to Goodstein, who served as external online director for Obama for America, are that it's easy to segment, allows for recurring donor programs, is trackable, provides for messages that are easy to link and forward, allows links to video, and helps build relationships with constituents.

The website for IFC Online — the world¹s first international fundraising e-conference — went live today.
