5 We’re Not Targeting Users Who are Already Localized Who We’re Targeting Prospects Who Are Falling Through the Cracks

6 Reddit Case Study Huge Click Through From Reddit to the “Donate to Station” Page “Yesterday, I Emailed the PBS Tech Support About an Issue With Their Video Player …” -- 77% Exited -- 13% Went to Local Station Site -- 10% Other Areas of PBS  Unknown % Went to Local Stations  16k Went to PBS Donation Page “I don't have much spare money to throw around these days, but I think PBS would be worth it.” “I bet if Reddit got a big enough check together (say $10,000+), and donated it to a specific show on PBS, that show would TOTALLY give a shout out. “ “I grew up in a small town in Québec and my parents didn't have cable, only a fancy outdoor antenna with a rotor on it. As a kid, I would always turn the antenna away from Montreal where my parents kept it and fine- tune it towards the Vermont transmitter to listen to PBS shows.” “How do I donate to the people that make PBS content available online? This is the future for a lot of people. I don't have a TV, so it doesn't make sense for me to donate to a local channel.” -- Initial Post on

7 Plan Updates Donation flow for “Localized Users” – Will remain as it is today. Expansion of opportunities for users to indicate station affinity. Introduction of two station pilots centered around name sharing and dual prospecting. Commitment to collaborate with Contributor Development Partnership (CDP) to identify areas and projects for alignment. Rebranded plan to PROSPER: Station Prospecting Platform How You Informed the Plan …

8 Agile Development Launch is not the end of the process, but rather the beginning We’ll constantly adjust, with the guiding principle always being the financial health of stations Flexible … Constantly Revising and Improving “Agile development is a group of development methodologies based on iterative and incremental development, where Requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration.” -- Wikipedia

9 Timeline Going on a Journey Together Q4Q1Q2Q3 & Beyond Develop Detailed Project Plan Communicate Plan Spring Summer Winter Fall  Launch & Develop Platform  Profile Registration  Pilot Station Test Begins  Launch Email Program  End of Year Campaign  Prospecting Campaigns  Phase II Platform Enhancements  List/Name Sharing  Surveys  Partnership Programs

10 Key Platform Functions Contact Management: Centralized donor contact database; detailed histories including gift and station affinity ~ Salesforce Email Campaigns: Electronic customer relationship management system offering lead qualification and nurturing tools; digital footprint of users on ~ Eloqua Member Station Reporting Portal Online portal allowing Member Stations to view and download “matched” donor contact records ~ Salesforce Billing System: PayPal payment processer for top four credit cards and PayPal Call Center Support: Donation troubleshooting via toll free number

11 Station Testing PBS will work with a group of pilot stations to evaluate the name sharing process and dual solicitation to develop business rules and share key learnings. Online Dual Solicitation Test Question to Answer: Dual solicitation and its impact? Test: Two groups of matched stations – one group gets both station and PBS communications while the other group only gets station communications Prospect Cultivation Test Question to Answer: How is the best way to maximize cultivation efforts for name sharing? Test: 50/50 member station/PBS split of matched prospect names to cultivate

12 Future Opportunities A Wealth of Possibilities Media partnerships to expand audience Tools, training & idea sharing forums for stations Cross-platform features to drive user registration - Resume viewing (e.g., start on desktop – resume on iPad) - Favorite programs (profile alerts, push notifications) - Persistent station affinity storage / related features Features/Offers for “Station Members Only”
