Mobile Marketing for Nonprofits with Mobile Apps

Mobile Apps and SMS Marketing for Nonprofits

Mobile marketing for nonprofits is another critical channel to reach donors for your nonprofit or charity in New York. Mobile apps are the fastest growing segment of mobile marketing – smart phones owners, which represent 50% of US cell phone owners are now spending an average of 2 hours per day using iPhone apps and Android apps for fun, to read books, on line magazines and more.

By setting up a mobile app for your nonprofit or charity, you can encourage donations to your cause and spread awareness to a wider range of people and increase results for your nonprofit beneficiaries.

By branching into mobile app development, your nonprofit or charity can expand its mobile presence and attract new donors while continuing to engage past and current donors. Mobile app design does not have to be complicated or expensive – you can easily outsource your mobile app development to an online service such as – who will develop and launch mobile apps for your nonprofit group for as low as $279.

Another source to outsource mobile app creation to independent app developers is called Odesk where you can post your mobile apps project and receive competitive bids from app developers all over the world.

What’s more, mobile app development using a resource like oDesk is low-risk – your payment will be held in escrow and not disbursed to the developer until you are satisfied with your mobile app design.

Mobile marketing for nonprofits can be greatly enhanced by offering iPhone apps and Android apps to engage donors. Your mobile app design can offer a tool people can use, a game to entertain or information contributors may find interesting. Mobile apps can also be a conduit for donations, such as:

Bliss is a mobile app the raises breast cancer awareness

Shazam is one of the many charitable iPhone apps that helps raise donations for charities in Africa fighting AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis

Phospho is one of the many Android apps that serves as a tool – it is paid app that functions as a flashlight tool and 100% of the revenues go to benefit the blind

Support Haiti is a mobile marketing for nonprofits app that drives donations to victims of the earthquake in Haiti

We were thinking of introducing mobile application for our fund raising activities.Is it possible that we can develop a mobile application that can run in different mobile operating systems like iOS , Android etc.If not would it possible to have the application converted as needed for other OS environments retaining the much needed features?

Thanks for the spreading the awareness!

Using a mobile app as part of your nonprofit fundraising activities is a great idea. I think your going to find that your going to need both an IOS app as well as an Android app. Check out Shoutem mobile app builder service. Its a pretty quick way to build a mobile app for both android and iphone.
