Outgoing Phase / Prepare Campaign Mailer:
We must first determine who we’re trying to reach. We will use lists you have in-house or rent lists that fit your criteria. Once the target market is identified, we will help you create an effective mailer – one that gets opened and people respond. When the mailer design is approved, we will print, fold, stuff and mail your materials.
Incoming Phase / Collect & Process Donations:
Alliance uses state-of-the-art lockbox software to process your incoming mail. All donations are imaged and archived for online access. Any correspondence is also imaged and supplied to you for review. At this time we will update the mailing list as required for future campaigns.
When donors respond, they have many payment methods from which to choose. A powerful tool is our ability to process credit cards mailed in or via the web. Our secure web servers allow us to add a link between your website and ours so credit cards can be processed online.
At the end of each day, you will receive an electronic posting file formatted to your specifications. You can then update your records for all payment types received. We will also generate statistical reports so you can track your progress. To complete the process, we will create and mail a thank you / tax deduction letter on your behalf.
