The absolute best way to promote your fundraiser is by utilizing social media platforms. In 2018, there are many platforms to choose from, and it is hard to know which are the most helpful. When it comes to fundraisers, finding innovative and creative ways to promote your efforts are essential to motivating potential donors. With the growth in popularity it has seen, Instagram is a great option for advertising your fundraiser. Instagram is user-friendly and easy to read, making it one of the best ways to promote your fundraising. When using Instagram to market your fundraiser, here are some things to keep in mind to ensure that you gain the attention of your followers.
Upgrade Your Profile
Chances are that you already have a personal Instagram account. With your fundraiser, it’s time to go public! Just as easily as you created a personal account, you can create a business account on Instagram. Remember to include your fundraiser’s landing page and to always link back to that landing page with every post that you make.
It’s important that you push your mission and passion throughout your posting. Of course, your end goal is to raise a certain amount of money for your fundraiser, but potential donors need to know why they should take out their wallets for your organization. Make your message clear, and remain accessible to people with any questions.
The hashtag is a huge part of the Instagram experience. Hashtags are used for everything you can think of. From weddings to foodie posts, hashtags are an excellent way to amp up excitement among your followers. Think of a “punny” hashtag for your fundraiser that people will gravitate toward. Encourage others to use it as well!
