Click or Skip? Which words work best in your planned gift e-marketing?

Traditionally, marketers for charitable organizations looked at response rates to gauge success of their print pieces because that was the only measure available. Thanks to analytics data that e-mail software provides, marketers can now see their constituents interacting with planned giving e-mails.

This quiz tests your intuition about the words and phrases that are most often associated with those hoped-for clicks. It's based on a study conducted by the team at Pentera.

Take the Quiz!

When you receive your score at the end of the quiz, you'll also get a link to Pentera CEO Claudine Donikian's full paper from this year's National Conference on Philanthropic Planning.
