Presentation now available from our May networking event:

How the RSPB revitalised RFV for more income


Ruth Smyth, Supporter Insight Manager, RSPB

Julie Pitt, Director, Plug the Gap

Plug the Gap helped the RSPB to better understand their appeal income by using classic Recency/Frequency/Value analysis and then digging beneath this to reveal a more complex picture of donor response to appeals.

This insight led to a review of the appeals programme, including a change to the prompting levels, new reporting techniques for appeals and a better understanding of what makes an appeal successful with RSPB supporters.

Recent analysis of the subsequent results has shown that, by introducing new prompting levels, donor behaviour has shifted and donative value is starting to increase. This will need to be monitored over time but shows a promising start!
