NationBuilder: A comprehensive online tool for political and fundraising campaigns.December 20, 2016
Author: Jeremy Hawes
Traditionally a combination of separate online tools would be used and managed with their own logins, interfaces, and support. An example might be using WordPress for a blog, MailChimp for newsletters and email audience engagement, Salesforce for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and PayPal as a payment gateway and invoicing tool.
When you switch to NationBuilder you'll find that all these tools are now available in a single suite of tools with the same NationBuilder login, interface, and support. No more jumping around between a handful of websites and tutorials - now everything is in one place.
Competitively priced NationBuilder's basic packages give you everything you need to start: a website with lots of free themes and easy-to-use customization options (advanced customization available too), a blog, email marketing tools, dashboard performance tracking, technical support 7 days/week, and access to 3rd party applications (i.e. eFundraising Connections).
Plans are easily scalable and affordable for when you need more websites or when you would like more advanced features such as A/B testing, text message marketing, customer memberships, and more.
If you need a developer to help with integrating a custom app or with unique customization of your website's theme, there are some great features they will likely be very pleased to hear. The theme's are built using Shopify's liquid structure, Bootstrap's framework, and have Sass installed for more advanced CSS styling.
