Your Higher Education Marketing Link of the Week… College of Wooster: Capital Campaign Introduction… 19 January 2018

Easy-to-Find and Donate to 5 Campaign Priorities

College of Wooster Capital Campaign PromiseMany, maybe most, people visiting a capital campaign site are already interested in giving… but they need to know the campaign priorities. And if they find one that’s convincing, the need a clear, quick path to make a donation.

The “Wooster’s Promise: A Campaign for Our Future” website presents the 5 “Institutional Priority” goals in an easy-to-scan row just under introductory text and a 4-minute introductory video:

•Financial Aid

•The Wooster Fund

•Academic Strength

•Experiential Education

•The Life Sciences

From this point, people can either click directly on a top of highest interest to see more content (including a short student, faculty, or staff quote) and a “Support Academic Strength” or similarly labeled pathway to the related donation page.

That design of course makes it quite easy to measure interest in the campaign topics as time unfolds by tracking how many people are following each of the 5 topics… and the size per donor of the gifts that might result.

On Mobile…

The site earned a “Fair” rating from Google Test My site: a 7 second mobile download speed. Google projects a 26 percent visitor loss rate.
