Everyone asks me what problem I'm solving, who has the problem, and do they want it fixed. In my experience people are more likely to stick to what they know rather than learn about something new. I want to lower the barrier for learning more about what people are doing at NGOs, non-profits, and regular old businesses. The first market I want to support is the NGO market.
There are NGOs of all types trying to help make the world a better place. When an NGO seeks support they reach out to their network and market to as many people as they can reach with the available marketing dollars they have. To support their mission statement they spend money on outreach, website administration, and seeking out more money (e.g. seeking donations and writing for grants).
NGOs that try to maintain a low percentage of administration costs.
What does it mean to "fix" this problem? There is no magic bullet for extending the reach of an NGO. NGO360 is a way to supplement the outreach efforts. The cost is low. Do NGOs want to get more reach with their outreach efforts while spending little to do it? I argue that the answer is yes.
