Itraffic wins NSPCC’s interactive advertising account

first_imgItraffic wins NSPCC’s interactive advertising account Itraffic, the interactive advertising arm of Agency.com, has won the interactive strategy and advertising account for children’s charity NSPCC, the first time the charity has worked with an external digital agency.Itraffic will help NSPCC focus more on online fundraising and will develop its strategy on online donor market segmentation. Itraffic’s Strategic Planning department has researched the online giving market for NSPCC and reports that online audiences in the UK have a higher propensity to support charities than the average UK population. Advertisement Howard Lake | 12 September 2004 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. It says that there are 17.86 million donors with an Internet connection but only 1.62 million make donations online. This means that, while 66% of the online audience are charity supporters, online donors currently represent only 6% of the total market. However, Donato Larotonda, Strategic Planner at itraffic, believes that “charities could grow the online donor base to 15% of the market… by 2008.”The NSPCC will launch a campaign based on these findings later this year, to generate one-off and regular donations online. Itraffic will handle all the online creative, media planning and buying.Stephanie Hughes, Online Donor Recruitment and Relationship Marketing manager at NSPCC, said: “We enjoyed working with itraffic to devise the new campaign and valued the recommendations and creativity. Everybody at NSPCC is really keen to take this forward and increase our online presence as a result.”center_img Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Digital Individual giving Research / statistics  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img

Maggie’s Centres to test cold calling for new monthly donors

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 2 June 2008 | News Tagged with: Individual giving Advertisement  51 total views,  1 views today Cancer caring charity Maggie’s Centres is to test recruiting monthly donors by cold calling following the launch of Maggie’s London, the charity’s first centre for people affected by cancer to be built outside Scotland.The trial is being carried out by telephone fundraising agency Relationship Marketing. If it is successful, Maggie’s Centres plans to employ cold calling to support the launch of its five new centres due to open in England and Wales by 2012, as well as other cold telemarketing activity, such as around anniversaries and to support events and community fundraising.Elley Martin, donor development manager at Maggie’s Centres, said:”We know it’s unusual trying to recruit regular monthly givers by the telephone, but the launch of Maggie’s London has really raised awareness of us in the capital and we want to build on that with a campaign to recruit regular givers.”She added: “We are very much a community-fundraising based organisation, getting support from the communities that are most likely to need and use our centres. Using the telephone to contact those potential supporters is an extension of that ethos.”The test began in May with callers working out of Relationship Marketing’s call centre in Dunfermline contacting people in postcodes in the London boroughs that Maggie’s London serves, to ask for a paperless direct debit (PDD) contribution of between £5 and £8 a month.The cold calling will be combined with a campaign to upgrade Maggie’s Centres’ existing direct debit givers and convert cash givers to direct debits.As the cold recruitment segment of the campaign is a test, Maggie’s Centres and Relationship Marketing have not put a target on the number of new donors. However, the warm component has targets of 10-12% conversion of cash donors to direct debits, with the aim of securing an average annual gift of £60; and upgrading 30% of existing monthly givers by an average of £3 a month.Relationship Marketing’s director of development Gordon Michie said: “Common wisdom says that you can’t use the telephone to recruit new donors, but there’s no reason why that should be so.“Fundraisers know that people respond to a direct one-to-one conversation and you can do this over the telephone. As long as you’ve looked at your data and chosen those people you think are most likely to respond, then there’s no reason why we can’t mount a successful donor recruitment campaign using the telephone”.Michie believes that a resurgence in the use of the telephone as a fundraising tool is likely. He said: “With falling response rates to DM and moves towards more personal contact with stewardship, I think the telephone is primed for a fundraising renaissance.” Maggie’s Centres to test cold calling for new monthly donors  52 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Buffalo demands mental health help, not death-by-cop

first_imgBuffalo, N.Y. — Activists demonstrated here Feb. 28 in solidarity with the family of Daniel Prude and the people of Rochester, N.Y, where police killed Prude while answering a mental health crisis call in March 2020.Buffalo, N.Y., City Hall, Feb. 28. (WW Photo: Arjae Red)The police response was to put a “spit bag” over Prude’s head and press his body and face into the pavement for several minutes. He stopped breathing and was sent by ambulance to a hospital. A week later he was declared brain dead and taken off life support. Coroners have ruled his death a homicide.The Rochester Police Department attempted to cover up its crime, preventing the release of body cam footage of the incident until September 2020. The release generated weeks of protest, and Prude’s family vowed to sue the city over their loved one’s death. A grand jury declined to indict the cops who were responsible, prompting another round of protests.At the Feb. 28 Buffalo demonstration, representatives of Queen City Worker’s Center, Justice for Migrant Families and Workers World Party spoke, drawing parallels with the cases of Troy Hodge in Niagara Falls and India Cummings in Buffalo. Both died in jail following their arrests during mental health crisis calls. Speakers called for solidarity with political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, in view of his recent COVID-19 illness, and with prisoners at the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) detention center in nearby Batavia.Speakers raised demands for the statewide passage of Daniel’s Law — named for Prude — which would form mental health units to respond to mental health crises instead of cops. The legislation would mandate that police stop the use of “bola wraps,” a restraint launched from a firearm which hooks into a person’s skin and lassos them. The Buffalo Police Department acquired this weapon in 2020, despite public outcry, and first used the bola wrap against a person during a mental health call this January.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

U.S. Drone Maker Skydio Selected for Final Integration in the U.S. Army’s Short Range…

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness U.S. Drone Maker Skydio Selected for Final Integration in the U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance Program Pinterest REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– Skydio, the leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight, today announced the U.S. Army elected to continue with the Skydio X2D SRR system to complete remaining integration and documentation requirements within the Other Transaction Agreement Prototype Phase. The SRR program, managed by the Program Executive Office (PEO) for Aviation’s Project Manager for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (PM UAS) located in Huntsville, Alabama, aims to equip Soldiers with a rapidly deployable small UAS solution to conduct Reconnaissance and Surveillance (R&S) activities. The Army decided to continue with Skydio for final integration activities based upon extensive testing and evaluation. The evaluation of the candidate prototypes focused on an assessment against the Performance-Specification during the Limited User Test coordinated by U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) and several Limited Objective Experiments. Soldier feedback and design review packages were used to assess the overall product performance, quality, as well as readiness to scale production. While the Army’s decision represents a strong step forward, it does not constitute full completion of the Other Transaction Authority (OTA) project nor does it guarantee a follow-on production award. “We are proud to have been selected by the U.S. Army for the final integration in the SRR program.” said Adam Bry, Skydio CEO. “The Army has done incredible work to ensure our soldiers have access to cutting edge drone technology. This milestone is the result of years of research and development in autonomous flight and core technologies. It is a testament to the breakthrough capabilities of the Skydio X2D and our world-class team.” Skydio X2D is the ultimate solution for military and defense customers to perform reconnaissance, search and rescue, and security patrol missions. Skydio X2D pairs Skydio Autonomy, the world’s leading AI-driven flight autonomy software, with a foldable, highly portable airframe that leverages hyper-strength composites to withstand the most demanding environments. X2 features a dual 12MP color optical plus 320×256 FLIR® thermal sensor, and is equipped with GPS-based night flight and strobe lighting, making it ready for both day and night operations, while providing up to 35 min of flight time on a single battery. Designed, assembled, and supported in the USA, X2D complies with the NDAA’s rigorous supply chain security requirements and offers superior cybersecurity protection. “Access to accurate, timely information on the battlefield is a critical determining factor for mission success,” said Chuck McGraw, Skydio Director of Federal Sales. “Drones are powerful situational awareness tools for organic unit-level ISR, but legacy manual solutions are difficult to fly and easy to crash. With its unmatched AI-powered autonomy, Skydio X2D represents the next step in the evolution of small unmanned aircraft systems for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) to reduce cognitive overload by unlocking the simplest and most effective flight experience.” About Skydio Skydio is the leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight. Skydio leverages breakthrough AI to create the world’s most intelligent flying machines for use by consumers, enterprises, and government customers. Founded in 2014, Skydio is made up of leading experts in AI, robotics, cameras, and electric vehicles from top companies, research labs, and universities from around the world.

A variety of projects, generally linked to evolving Asda’s culture, way ofworking and management style. What’s the best thing about your job? Receiving phone calls from people who feel that some training ordevelopment I have helped create has made a real difference to them. What is your current major project or strategic push?

Move from retail to training. And what was the worst? Applying to only two companies on graduating from university! Which of your qualifications do you most value and why? My degree, not because I have found it useful since, but because I spentthree years learning about something I was interested in rather than somethingwhich had an immediate practical use. What was the worst course you ever went on? Time management – why are these courses inevitably a waste of time? How many minutes is it since someone senior in your organisation said:‘People are our greatest assets’?
