Are You Asking For Less Money Than You Should?

donations onlineAsking for donations can be tricky, especially if you are running for local office. When you make your requests for donations, you don’t want to ask for too much as a minimum. Supporters that might give you $25 without a problem may not bother at all if you ask for $100 minimum donation.

On the other hand, if you have supporters that are willing to give your campaign hundreds or even thousands of dollars, why would bother asking them for just a few dollars?  That’s just leaving money on the table.

What Are Your Campaign’s Trigger Events?

In fundraising, trigger events attach an emotional link to a request, promoting a higher response rate. Generic appeals for funds are never as successful as specific appeals. Any number of trigger events can provide you with the excuse to reach out to your supporters for donations.

Email and social media gives you an almost immediate way to reach to supporters and capitalize on trigger events. With a little planning, you can keep your fundraising momentum going throughout the campaign.

One Donation Page Is Never Enough!

Multiple Donation PagesIs your campaign just using a single online donation page? If so, you’re not taking advantage of the opportunities created by segmenting your supporters and sending them to targeted pages.

By using different donation pages, you can track conversions from different fundraising campaigns and track money to the source. This can help improve individual donation pushes and maximize your contributions from different donor segments.
