The internet offers many opportunities to spread awareness about your fundraising goals. Whether you need to publicize your mission, gather information, or communicate with your partners. You can even use various online tools to keep track of your success as the fundraiser progresses. Social media, in particular, has many benefits with its useful platforms that allow the use of messages, photos, surveys, and more. Let’s get you started on using social media to help you reach your fundraising goals.
Keep Up with the Trends
Keeping up with the trends ensures that your social media efforts will be in line with how people are currently using social media. It will help you reach a much larger audience by putting your messages in the places where the most people will see them. If you’re using Twitter, create a poll that allows people to interact with your account and create a hashtag for Twitter and Instagram that people can follow and use themselves to further the efforts of your fundraiser.
Facebook and Twitter are two social media sites that thrive on sharing. Sharing will also get more people interested and involved in your fundraising efforts. Use social media as a marketing strategy that will multiply with minimal effort from your team. Encourage people to share your posts on their pages, which will then be seen by people that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to reach on your own.
To effectively use social media, you have to stay on top of what times of the day that people are logged on. That will give you the most bang for your buck when it comes to running a successful social media fundraising campaign. Stay on top of statistics that suggest the most popular times that people interact with their pages.
