Digital Consulting & Training Services

Many nonprofits are run by a small group of people who are passionate about their cause, but may not have the time or expertise to make the most out of their digital assets. We offer customized training sessions for nonprofit teams and individuals on best practices and strategies to be used for your social media, website and email communication. Use the form on the right to set up a meeting or phone call so we can get you started. 

We're flexible, so If you're around our office in North East Minneapolis, stop by to talk about your concerns or ask how we can help. We'd also love to come out and meet with your team or even set up a call via Skype. Contact us with what works for you.

 

Digital Literacy Seminar

Set up an appointment with one of our consultants to meet with your executive director, director of development or marketing team to go over the state of the internet in 2018 and how it affects nonprofits. This seminar is designed as an educational tool for leaders of nonprofits to gain better understanding how digital strategies can increase fundraising and audience engagement while helping them reach their clients more effectively.

If you are part of a nonprofit organization or a cause focused business, contact us to receive this service at no charge.

COMPREHENSIVE DIGITAL OVERVIEW REPORT

Digital Overview Report

One of the best and easiest places to start when looking to increase your online presence is to do an overview and evaluation of your current website.

We will evaluate your website on over 70 indicators to arrive at a final overall score. Our Comprehensive Digital Overview (CDO) comes with a 30 page detailed report describing the strengths and weakness of your site. 

After the CDO is complete, one of our consultants will meet with your team or schedule a conference call to go over the results and recommend improvements you can can make.

If you're considering redesigning your current website or just want to know how it is performing and how to make some minor tweaks to improve it, a Comprehensive Digital Overview is a great piece of data that you can use to plan your next digital steps. 

We offer our CDO Report at a discounted price for members of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits

New Website or Updates to existing

A great looking website is one of the most important elements for engaging clients and volunteers, not to mention donors. Most companies and organizations redesign or upgrade their sites every 3 or 4 years.

There are many design firms and designers that can create great looking websites. What sets Ascension Development Group apart is our focus on creating great looking sites that perform, drive traffic, and increase donations and engagement with volunteers or clients.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

Social media is a powerful tool and when used effectively, it can grow donor bases and engagement with larger and larger audiences. 

We can help your organization use social media to:

  • Increase online giving
  • Increase monthly supporters
  • Promote your fundraising events
  • Increase page likes and followers
  • Get your message out to more people
     

If you're frustrated with the lack of momentum you're getting from your social media accounts let's meet to talk about what you're currently doing and how we can help get you on the right track to success through social media outreach.

 

  • Is social media advertising worth it?

  • How do we get more followers, likes or signups?

  • Can we improve our social media reach without hiring someone in-house?

BRANDING AND MESSAGING

The 5 Second Test

If given just 5 seconds to look at your site or social media page, would a new visitor be able to answer the following questions:

  1. What does your organization do?

  2. Why would I want to be involved or donate to your organization?

  3. How do I donate/volunteer? 

If your website and social media pages fail this test, you're missing out on valuable donations and volunteers. 

Let us help you develop messaging and a brand that inspires loyalty, delivers your message, builds credibility and connects people emotionally to your cause.

SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING FOR NONPROFITS

It's great if you have an amazing looking website, but if people aren't finding their way to it, then it's not making a difference for your organization. After all, what's the point of being online if you can't be found?

We take the hard work out of implementing and designing an effective search engine optimization strategy.  Using different tools we develop both on and off page SEO tactics tailored to your company's specific needs that will help the right people find your organization.  Every aspect of what we do is trackable so that you have proven results to review with your board and community monthly.
