Top 7 Tips for Fundraisers
- Describe your challenge in a succinct but engaging way. Be as descriptive as you can giving details of the challenge…and a bit of humour can’t hurt!
- Upload an eye-catching image. A picture tells a thousand words, so make your picture one that stands out in the competition as there are 20 entries per page and to get the votes you need something to reel them in.
- Share your page! There are social media share buttons at the bottom of your page to make this a bit easier- make sure to add a personal message to rally support from your friends and family!
- Use the link. When your entry is published you’ll be sent a link to our individual page that you can use for emailing round friends, family and work colleagues. Sending an email to your workmates (especially if you work for a large company) can be a great way to get more votes!
- Get your charity involved. The competition can be a great way to raise awareness for their cause. Asking them to share your page on social media, include on their news page or email out to fundraisers are all great ways to improve your coverage, and theirs too!
- Get blogging! If you have your own blog, or you know someone who does, putting a link to your page could help gain some additional interest, and improve your votes!
- Go to the press. Local newspapers love stories about people taking on challenges, especially for a good cause! Try asking your local paper if they would be interested in your story- most will have an email address to submit stories to or even try calling the newsdesk and speaking to a journalist to gauge interest.
