Nonprofit organizations can use various online platforms as a digital marketing strategy. The sponsors and donors are already online; whether they are scrolling through social media, working, or shopping, being online with them with various digital technologies tools like e-marketing, social media presence, blogs and websites, and others will foster a better and close relationship with them.
