Use your project page and social media to its fullest potential
22 May 2017
With your portal, you have more control than ever before to manage your projects. Images, video and a meaningful story capture the attention of potential donors- login to your portal now and see if you can add some more content to your project page.
Many organisations don’t have the time or budget to build their own website- fortunately you have the ability to utilise your project page as your own project website. You can link e-newsletters, emails, social media etc. to your project page.
For those organisations that get a lot of traffic through their own website though, we recommend adding some information about your fundraising project and downloading a DONATE NOW button for instant redirection to the online donation form for your project. You want to make it as easy as possible for your supporters to donate, and it doesn’t get any easier than “one click”!
Share the love on social media
If you’re posting on Twitter or Instagram, keep your story short and sweet and just provide a link to the longer version of your fundraising story. Don’t forget that Instagram is all about visuals so choose the best photo you can!
Facebook allows for longer more informative posts and you can also link to your donation page. Again, make sure you chuck in a couple of photos of your competing in your sport because the numbers show that posts that contain photos get 60% more engagement than those without!
