Leveraging digital is about more than just marketing...

When most nonprofits think “digital,” they think of marketing and fundraising. What they don’t realize is that "leveraging digital" is a process, not a result — With the rise of the internet and the impact of big data, the world has changed — It’s time to re-build your nonprofit so it can thrive in the digital age, by leveraging concepts birthed by the shapers of the internet such as agile principles, working in sprints, iterative project development, and yes, you should probably leverage digital marketing too. 

That's why we made the Impact Method™.

Here’s what leveraging digital means to us:
