Social media has taken the world by storm. If you own a business, you would be foolish to not take advantage of social media. The various social media platforms are at your disposal and are absolutely perfect for promoting a fundraiser. If you have a fundraiser on the horizon, here are some things you should do with your social media efforts.
For those that do not know, a hashtag is a pound sign used to identify a particular topic online. They are incredibly useful when you are trying to guide people to your web pages. If you have an online fundraising page, you could have one a hashtag that will bring people to your donate section.
People love getting things for free. If you are trying to generate buzz for your fundraiser, create some sort of free giveaway. It will attract more people to your fundraiser, which should help you raise more money.
If you want to generate awareness for your fundraiser, you want your social media posts to be shared online as many times as possible. One great way to do this is to ask your attendees to share your posts. If they are excited about your fundraiser, they will probably be more than willing to do so. It only takes a person a second to click that “share” button and they would be doing you a huge favor.
Show Your Excitement
A great way to generate buzz about your upcoming fundraiser is to display your excitement for it online. Frequently post to the various social media sites so people won’t forget about your fundraiser. Also, make sure you are using a lot of exclamation points in your social media posts!
