Important Social Media Tips

A special note about Facebook and Twitter: Both platforms throttle your post’s reach when it has an external link in it. They would rather people did not leave the platform. The best solution is to make sure the written portion of your post really engages the few people it does reach; you can also ask people to comment and/or share so the post will get some traction.

Mix it up: No one wants to see the same social media post about your fundraiser over and over, so get creative to make sure your posts are seen! 

  • Go live on Facebook, 
  • record a video, 
  • share photos,
  • create your own images in Photoshop or Canva
  • get involved in memes, 
  • issue a social media challenge… 

…don’t be afraid to think outside of the box!

Ask for shares and engagement: We all need a little help from our friends, so be sure to ask yours to comment on and share your fundraiser to help increase your reach.

Make specific “asks”: Making a general request that people donate to your page is all well and good, but what works even better is asking for something specific: 

  • A specific dollar amount,
  • an amount that will get you to your next milestone, social media shares, etc. 

People like these kinds of requests because it takes the guesswork out of helping and gives them specific instructions!
