Company Description

Givsly believes that providing tools for marketing and advertising strategies is one of the best ways to show how purpose drives profit. Why? 9 out of 10 CMOs believe their company should lead in addressing social and environmental issues. Marketers are also inherently trained to track return on investment via spend, creating a direct correlation between the profit that can be driven from integrating purpose-driven solutions into business strategies. Even in challenging times like the pandemic, great resignation, and inflation, our revenue nearly tripled in 2021 over the year prior as marketers utilize our purpose-driven solutions as a must have to their plans.There are two key ways to utilize Givsly solutions:1. Givsly Platform: Marketers can easily access the platform to integrate “off the shelf” solutions into any marketing strategy. Companies currently utilize Givsly’s tools for lead generation, content downloads, surveys and much more. By using our tools, our clients are seeing more effective results. Based on these results, we rolled out subscriptions to our clients in 2022 to accelerate our recurring revenue model. 2. Nonprofit API: The API allows companies to integrate our nonprofit partners into their own platform or advertising creative. For example, brands can trigger a nonprofit donation when users engage with their advertising. This drives their ability to support causes important to them while also increasing the performance and engagement of their ad campaign.  Clients can access the API through our subscription model plus we charge additional fees based on the volume of transactions each partner is driving.As Givsly continues to expand our direct integrations with over 300 nonprofits, we will continue to scale our products to integrate purpose anywhere companies look to increase profit.
