Top 4 Tips to Maximise Your Fundraising Online

Over the years Digity has supported lots of different causes and Chris (Digity MD and Networking in Berkshire Founder) is a big believer in experiencing new things and helping wherever he can. With this in mind he recently took part in a charity abseil for Emerge Poverty Free and the fundraising went well. We know a few others who are doing similar things at the moment so he has put together a quick guide to help everyone who is about to embark on a fundraising mission.  

Chris' Top 4 Fundraising Tips:

1. Set-up your online donation page ASAP - we hear the Virgin Money Giving set-up is very good as it take a smaller percentage of donations than other big names.

2. Tell everyone you know what you're doing via email - create a sincere email to let them know what you're doing, when and most importantly why!  Give them a link to your donation page.  I included some people I hadn't spoken to for a while and others who I flat-out thought would never sponsor me - but I figured if you don't ask, you don't get.  I was amazed by what happened!

3. Depending what you're doing there's likely to be some training involved so keep people updated via social media (all your accounts) as to progress - with every post make sure there's a link to your donation page.

4. With every donation you receive, thank that person publicly on your social media account and if you're friends with them, tag them in (this will encourage even more support and interest from them but equally it's a subtle reminder to the other onlookers).  Definitely post a link back to your page too every time - I can't stress how important adding links continually is on social media along with great images - either of you or related to the quest!
