067: Myth busting nonprofit marketing with science

April 27, 2017

We interview Dr Margaret Faulkner, Senior Research Associate,  Ehrenberg-Bass Institute for Marketing science at the business school, in the  University of South Australia. Margaret’s primary areas of expertise and research are in measuring consumer-based brand equity and advertising effectiveness, with a focus on tracking brand health and the effectiveness of marketing efforts. Her research in the not-for-profit sector shows the importance of the laws of growth for all brands.

Is it always better to focus on retaining customers at the expense of new ones?

  • Instead of earning miles or bonus points, every transaction with the Charity Charge card allows you to donate 1% cash back to ANY nonprofit of your choice. It's an easy way to give everyday
  • Unlike many giving-linked payment cards, the Charity Charge MasterCard issued by Commerce Bank is not limited to a single organization or cause — as with “affinity” cards — and there is no donation-processing fee, so recipient groups get the entire cash-back bonus. Consumers choose target charities when they sign up for the card and can change them at any time.
