Relationship Management

    • Responsiveness: Always respond to any message or request within 24 hours (and ideally within 4-6 hours if it’s within business day) – even if just to say when you’ll have an update. Always confirm that you’re working on it for things that might take longer.
    • Proactive, frequent, and strategic communications: Generally, we want to have a personalized interaction of some type with all live relationships at least once a quarter. The time when someone receives your communication matters (best between 11 am Monday and 4 pm Thursday), use the “schedule to send” feature!
    • Strategic prep for meetings: We never go into our funder interactions cold, we always have a strategy and a good prep document. Every interaction meaningfully moves forward our relationship in a specific way.
    • Prompt follow up: After any interaction, follow up within 24 hours, and sooner if possible (ideally immediately).
    • Effective record-keeping: Take notes during or immediately after interactions, and make sure these notes are sent and stored in Salesforce (ideally within 24 hours). Hone in on what’s truly the most important to remember.
