Engaging Networks Overview

What is Engaging Networks?

Engaging Networks is a fundraising and charity software that helps organizers and auctioneers design custom online pages according to their needs. The software features a suite of tools that help replace current email, fundraising, campaigning, P2P events and data management systems, and to redesign them in a much more impactful manner. Engaging Networks' page builder technology helps nonprofits to build intuitive advocacy or donation pages with the help of templates. There are templates for thank you pages, donation forms, marketing content, calls to action, and more.

Engaging Networks integrates pages with social media networks, and across other modules. It allows users to create multi-page forms featuring progress bars and pre-populated fields to reduce the manual work of donors. Pages can be created using HTML and WYSIWYG editors, meaning users can achieve the exact results they want, and content can be created in any language. The P2P (peer-to-peer) fundraising system within Engaging Networks allows users to build entire P2P campaign sites, rather than individual pages, for gathering donations, advertising events, describing the cause, and more.

An excellent tool for advocacy and fundraising for a large animal protection nonprofit

The quality customer service is the main selling point for us from Engaging Networks. They are incredibly responsive and personable – they know us all by name just as we do them. They have monthly check-ins with us to ensure the software is working and that we are utilizing all the tools offered. They offer quick and helpful support via email or phone and have really handy guides and webinars online for training and onboarding. They roll out new updates and technology every quarter, and they provide all the support you would need to be able to keep up with the pace. I can’t recommend them enough in this regard!

I love how Engaging Networks centralizes all of our data so that we can start to look at patterns of support in our network. We can really start to see all of the different ways that our community is interacting with us so that we can better tailor our campaigns to their tastes and needs.

Pros

Engaging Networks tools enable HRC's team to customize our web pages, advocacy pages and email campaigns to look and behave exactly as we want. This has boosted conversion rates on all of our donation pages. Our very first year-end campaign after switching to the new platform produced a three-fold increase in the number of monthly givers acquired.

Cons

Data and reporting is always an opportunity with any platform. Engaging Networks has been great with helping us connect tools to help increase our advocacy and reporting.

Response from Engaging Networks

Thank you for the review Drew! While we do have reporting and data visualizations in the platform, our open flexible API opens doors to connect with much more robust business intelligence tools for deep dive analysis.

Pros

Engaging Networks is always innovating, which allows for us to keep up with trends to maximize revenue and make it easy to engage our supports in the issues they care most about. Their user-friendly features in building pages and emails is top notch. They are ahead of the curve in terms of marketing automation, which makes creating sophisticated user journeys possible. They make personalization and complex segmentation easy to achieve.

Cons

Not much that they don't offer, can't really complain! We use a developer to create all the code for our action alert and email templates, so I'm not sure how ready to use EN's email and page templates are out of the box.

Response from Engaging Networks

Thank you for the glowing review Gabby! Please be sure to check out the new page builder template tools where you can drag and drop to customize your own template - no developer necessary!

Pros

The staff at Engaging Networks are always incredibly prompt in getting back to me. The staff is helpful and reliable. I wish I did not need to talk to them as much as I do, but at least they are pleasant to work with!

Cons

In my opinion, there are limited features to EN software. Running reports is always a pain. It's just not very user-friendly.

Response from Engaging Networks

Thank you for your kind words about our Client Support team. We're very proud of their success and ability to provide prompt and personal assistance when support requests come in. We're sorry you don't find our tools user-friendly or our features robust.

Excellent customer & tech support, recognised and relatively to use simple platform which is updated regularly and (more so today) very user-friendly

Pros

- The new page builder module and the CMS elements of it
- CARE integration and customisability of the output
- First class support from customer service
- Added additional field types in the form component i.e. Date, etc
- Interconnection between different types of campaigns i.e. the way advocacy campaigns forwarded to fundraising campaigns with data
- Comprehensive export feature with lots of filters
- Ease of including supporter information onto pages
- Facility to upload our own contact data set

Cons

- The new page builder is buggy at times on different browsers i.e. message block throws error on chrome most of the time
- The way EN styles are injected i.e. would be ideal for us if EN styles aren't injected after our styles, at the moment EN styles overrides ours in templates
- The ability to clear test data before going live, for some reason this was removed from page builder built campaigns
- The was messages are implemented, at the moment the output is Iframe content (when HTML format is used) which is hard to style etc
- There isn't a way to see all the components saved in library, leads to lot of duplicate blocks
- The inability to add labels/headings within a form block, for example, to separate sections within a form or to label question numbers
- Can't add default copy to text area (placeholder text)

Response from Engaging Networks

Kaye, Thanks so much for your positive review and your kind words about our responsive tech team and improved UI! We are aware of your styling concerns and will be addressing them in upcoming releases -- stand by!

I love how Engaging Networks centralizes all of our data so that we can start to look at patterns of support in our network. We can really start to see all of the different ways that our community is interacting with us so that we can better tailor our campaigns to their tastes and needs.

Pros

Engaging Networks is always growing and evolving to offer the very best product based on client needs. With the dashboards and visual reports, all the information is truly right at your fingertips. It is really elevating our fundraising, advocacy, and email marketing capabilities!

The newer page builder and marketing automation tools are game-changers.

Cons

Quite a bit of development investment is required to make the pages look modern and unique, and a lot of technical knowledge is required to get full use of the software.

Response from Engaging Networks

Hi Jen,
