Engaging Networks is nonprofit software, that includes online fundraising, advocacy, and email marketing tools. The platform provides widgets to connect with your website, but CMS functionality is not included, meaning that organizations must build and maintain their own website in addition to Engaging Networks. As a result, Engaging Networks generally requires a lot of integration work, in order for it to be functional in coordination with your existing or separate website. After adding up the costs of maintaining a separate site, and the custom integrations required, Engaging Networks can end up being much more expensive than list price.
In contrast, NationBuilder is the world’s first leadership software, providing everything you need to lead your organization, already fully integrated. NationBuilder includes a website, a database, all your communications tools, including email, social media, and text, the financial tools you need to accept donations and raise funds. The NationBuilder database is also best-in-class, fully integrated with social media, dynamically updating with all actions taken on your site, and including advanced geocoding and filtering to target and engage users according to the actions they’ve taken with you, or demographic variables. Additionally, NationBuilder includes innovative features to help you lead, including NationBuilder paths, built to increase your supporters’ engagement with your organization, and goals to motivate your team and help you to achieve greater impact. Full integration of all these tools in one platform improves your insights into the impact you’re having, and helps you to take action on those insights from within the software. NationBuilder is designed to help you identify, attract, and engage more readers, supporters, donors, voters, or customers.
Additionally, NationBuilder has an extensive app ecosystem, including best in class advocacy tools and integrations with crowdfunding platforms, or legacy CRMs like Salesforce and Raiser’s Edge.
Want to keep your existing site?
For customers that already have a site they love, organizations can create an action center on NationBuilder or link to “action pages” built on the NationBuilder CMS that are pre-designed to engage your supporters more effectively, and take advantage of all of NationBuilder’s features, while keeping your existing site.
