The best team and the best coach can’t win a game of football if they only put 5 players on the field. Think of us as substitutes, ready to come in whenever you need us, able to help with whatever you need to succeed.
“At this rate, the alumni relations profession is under threat.”
If you don’t act now, all the great work done to engage your alumni over the years will be undone very soon. It would take years to get back on that track. Currently, budgets don’t allow you to hire additional full time staff members, and that’s where on-demand staff can help you. They come in at a fraction of the cost, and are already trained, so you don’t have to spend as much time and money on recruitment & training.
Here are some examples of the types of services we have worked on. But we are flexible to work on anything that is helpful for alumni shops.
We’ll design the newsletters based on your branding, iterate with your team and send it out on time every month. This includes creation of the template, designing graphics, and the underlying software to send out the newsletters. We will hunt valuable articles from the internet based on your theme if you would want those included but we will not write specific articles for you.
Reach out to alumni, research the internet, to find stories from alumni that are worth highlighting to the community and get them published wherever alumni can see them. We’ll setup the interviews with alumni and share a template but the interviews will be conducted by you. The underlying software is included.
End-to-end management of the program once the goals are agreed upon. The underlying software, marketing of the program, signing up mentors and mentees, matching the right pairs, ensuring conversations happen, measuring outcomes, etc.
Can be combined with the alumni spotlight program or managed independently. From designing the forms, to the marketing collateral, to organizing the responses and distributing them to alumni, we will run the program end-to-end. The underlying software comes included.
You provide list of alumni records with current info from your database, and the list of details you are interested in adding to those records. Our staff will do the research to find you updated data of those alumni.
You provide us images/PDFs of your yearbooks and we’ll convert the data from there into spreadsheets so that you can import it back into your database.
End-to-end management of the program. We’ll start with consulting on the outcomes, figure out how to structure the survey based on best practices. Then we’ll reach out all your alumni with well-designed communications for maximum participation. We’ll also create beautiful dashboards to present the data easily to your boards and presidents.
We’ll have a designer work with you to create graphics, spruce up your webpages, events pages, fundraising campaigns, etc based on your branding.
Once an event is decided by your team, we will create the event page, run the marketing with specific attendance goal across email & social media, approve/disapprove registrations, provide regular reports of attendance, and finally importing the data into the database. The underlying events software is also included.
Once we agree upon award categories and nomination criteria, we will create the marketing collateral, run the process of collecting nominations, conduct surveys, and provide all the information necessary for the committee to pick the winners. We will not conduct the actual awards program itself.
You will provide us raw data for our data analysts to analyse and provide reports back to you so you can draw insights out of it. This can be used for donation data, engagement data, etc.
We are starting off with an early access program with just 10 institutions so that we can work closely with them and deliver success before allowing more institutions to join. Institutions that are part of the early access program can avail these services at half the regular price. By submitting your information below, you are indicating interest and this does not require you to purchase the service.
