Supporter journeys

For the supporter journeys training, we'll look at how to build meaningful and lasting relationships with your supporters. Taking an audience-driven approach, we'll discuss the strategic foundations of a great supporter journey as well as practical tips and exercises on how to design and implement your own. Topics covered include:

  • Setting clear goals for your supporter journeys
  • Planning your journeys
  • Designing engagement actions
  • Executing your journeys (incl. automation)

Digital copywriting

We'll then move on to the copywriting training where we give you the best practice tips and practical strategies you need to make your copy compelling and and motivating to your supporters. In addition to exploring general best practice, there will be a range of practical exercises and real-world examples.  Topics covered include:

  • The fundamentals of great copywriting
  • Email copywriting 
  • Writing for different audiences
  • Editing copy
  • Fundraising or campaigning copywriting (each participant can choose which of the two sessions to join)

You can book the full training - two sessions on supporter journeys and two on copywriting, or pick the training that most closely matches your current needs.

Feedback on previous more onion training events:

"The session was tailored to the needs of the group throughout, which was refreshing and meant I gained insight and wisdom specific to my needs from professionals with years of experience. Well worth the money."
Vicky Horne, digital campaigns officer, Beat

"I would really recommend this course to anyone looking to develop, increase or better engage their supporter base. Despite being virtual, the course facilitators managed to keep things moving and relevant throughout and I came away feeling inspired and motivated, and armed with some practical tips, ideas and techniques. It was also really useful to get an insight into what other charities are doing, and the challenges they face." Sarah Elam, External Relations Manager, The Harpur Trust

"The sessions were very well thought-out and considered as they used different formats to deliver large chunks of information - keeping us engaged throughout but also creating an atmosphere where all questions were welcome. Would highly recommend to all digital mobilisers." Charlotte Kennedy, Campaigns and Communications Officer, Robin Hood Tax

"I found the More Onion copywriting training extremely useful and took away a huge amount from it. The training gave me the tools to breakdown what I need to consider when reaching out to both cold and warm donors. I used my learnings immediately to make changes to a prospecting mailer I was writing up." Alexandra Henden, Partnerships Team, St Mungo’s
