Through my work at Mogiv, I’ve had a front row seat to the rise of mobile giving in recent years. But even I was surprised to discover just how much mobile giving increased in 2015.
A recent study released by npENGAGE revealed that mobile donations were up a whopping 45% during the last few months of 2015.
And that’s not all they discovered. Here are a few other key takeaways from the article…
Mobile giving still has tremendous opportunity for growth – While mobile giving took a significant leap forward last year, it still accounted for a mere 14% of total giving in 2015. When you consider that 64% of Americans own a smartphone, and 45% own a tablet, you’ll see there is still room for MAJOR growth through this giving channel.
Apple is still the king of mobile – 85% of mobile donations came in via iPhones and iPads. Android was a distant third with 14%. Interestingly though, giving from iPads was way down from 2014. (Dropped from 61% to 43%.) This suggests that smartphones have overtaken tablets as the dominant mobile giving device.
Mobile responsive websites are more important than ever – Not only do they look better, they work better as well! A separate study by npENGAGE revealed that responsive websites improved donate page conversion rates from 7.45% to 10.09%. An increase of 34%!!
These are numbers that every church needs to take seriously. The Internet has gone mobile, and giving has gone mobile with it!
