Spread the word!
Let as many people as possible know that you have started fundraising online for a good cause. Motivate friends and family to share your page with everyone, after all, you don’t ask for it, but for charity.
Once the ball starts rolling properly, chances are that you will also reach donors who fall outside your “group of friends”. If they also start sharing your page again, you have the chance that your promotion will go very quickly.
Make sure that everyone is kept informed of the state of affairs and share the updates and your page every week through as many channels as possible, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
You can also send a press release in the hope that it will be posted. Newspapers and other media are often charmed by free content. This offers you the opportunity to receive extra gifts. Depending on the target group you want to reach, you send that to the local or national media.
Also don’t forget to use the other fundraising tips on this page. This way your fundraising online will be easier and you will receive gifts more easily.
Trick: If you use Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp to share your promotional page, it is much more personal than other online channels.
