The time is NOW! #GivingTuesday is five weeks away. What strategy was successful for your organization last year? What will you do differently this year?
Below are three tips for a Successful #GivingTuesday Campaign.
1. Make donors feel as though they MATTER!
Don’t forget – even before donations are made to say thank you. Donors and their support, large or small, matter tremendously. Say thank you at the end of your ask and after donations are made to your #GivingTuesday Campaign.
2. Tell a compelling and heartfelt story.
Does your story tug at heartstrings? Does it put people and your mission first? Make certain your story and campaign is laced with emotion, tenacity and truth.
3. Engage local businesses.
Local businesses, of all sizes, love to be associated with wonderful causes in their communities. Perhaps local merchants will proudly hang window clings or display marketing cards. Ask local businesses to follow you on your social media channels (and follow them back!).
