How to Approach PEople Online With Your Fundraiser
Today, with COVID and everybody's differencing opinions on what's safe, what's not safe- and there's STILL the need to raise money...
How can we continue to facilitate sales without having the typical day in and day out interactions that we used to have with people.
Tip #1: Make Sure You Have the JPG Version of the Order Form
The first tip I would give you is to make sure that you have the .JPEG version of our order form so that you can share it on social media accounts like Facebook.
Tip #2: Be Consistent and Persistent!
You also want to be consistent and fairly persistent about your fundraiser. Most fundraisers are only going to be 2-3 weeks long. So if you do feel like you're annoying your Facebook friends, it's only going to last for 2-3 weeks anyway, so they'll get over it! That's the cool part about social media: once it's been seen, it's very easily forgotten afterwards so don't feel like you're being too pushy.
Something else to consider is that the Facebook algorithm is typically only going to show things to about 10% of your Facebook friend's newsfeeds. So when you feel like you're being very pushy and very rude, and just blowing your feed up with the fundraiser, keep in mind that if you've got 1,000 friends, only 100 or so people are even seeing those posts. So don't worry about being pushy or irritating people on social media. Get it out there, get it out on multiple platforms to multiple audiences to give yourself a chance.
Another thing that goes well with that is that in the copy of the area of your post, don't just put a couple of lines of text. Spend a little time explaining what the fundraiser does for whoever you're fundraising for.
Tip #3: Get your kids involved!
Get your kids involved. They've got Snapchat, Instagram, Tiktok. Let them be a part of the fundraising experience since ultimately, it's for them anyway, right?! Let them be a part of this!
Get it out there, get it out there often. Use that copy section as a place that you can really tell what the impact of this fundraiser will do for you or the team.
And also talk about how good the product is! How it saves them money. We provide all of that information to you as copy/paste-able social media content! Utilize that - we've seen teams do a really good job of this and they increase their sales upwards of 30-40% just by using the simple techniques and tools at every level.
