Here's What I Know About Fundraising Ideas for Nonprofits

Follow up & get response: activate your inner circle

 

Okay, so you are on your third day in public.  How is it going? Hopefully the people you’ve been connecting with followed up on their word. But the truth is, it’s probably less than 20% of the people on your list that actually gave.  That’s okay.  It’s totally normal.  It turns out that people are really really busy, and you need to keep showing up as someone who is inspirational.  

 

The absolute key is that right here you don’t do the thin that most inexperienced crowdfunding people start to do: begin.  Don’t come off as desperate in the slightest - actually, you need to prove that you are more excited by your project than ever, andyour connection to how close you really are for this being a reality needs to become clear.

Facebook Lookalike Ads for Kickstarter Crowdfunding

How to make a high converting facebook ad

Facebook advertising is a great way to generate traffic for your project, especially if you don’t have fans yet.  There are several things that go into it, namely the text components, the headline, your featured image, and of course the destination URL, which needs to show something very similar to what the ad is proposing.  There are also a number of targeting things beneath the hood that dictate how much you’ll spend and who the ad should be shown to you.

 

The first thing to do in setting up your ad is to complete the landing page or wherever you’ll be sending traffic.  Next, you want to make sure that you have a special tracking code, called a pixcil, installed on this page, this way you can send visitor specific ads down the line using something called retargeting.  But for now, go ahead and create your Facebook pixcil, and place it in the code of your website, so that it can begin tracking your visitors.

The Foolproof Indiegogo Review Strategy

Story is King:  Your editorial Strategy - 

Now that you’ve made your project main points, I’m going to show you how to make them work for you.  The key in any maketing campaign, be it on social media, email, ads, or content, depends on one thing: becoming lazed-focused on the exact part of your story you are telling.  Before I explain what that looks like, I’m going to share what is the opposite - The opposite of an editorial strategy is selling the same idea the same way again and again.  So and so is the first ever dot dot dot, buy now, again and again.  Many project creators choose only one selling point and they hammer it again and again the same way, this becomes excruciatingly boring for your followers.  What they want is an interesting tidbit here and there, and for them to feel like they are getting to know different aspects of your life.  Think of dating - do you tell your same life stories on multiple dates? NO!  You gradually share more about yourself through a variety of life stories, and this helps your date know who you are.  So when you are crafting an editorial strategy, focus on variety.  Now before I share about how variety plays into your editorial strategy, its important to see where and how this is used.

Kickstarter Video Production - Tools for the Cut

Tools for video editing and the way to build your crowdfunding cut

 

Now I’m going to discuss video editing and what to do to ensure the best piece.

Okay so affiliates and strategic partners are some of the most important people you can put in place to maximize your launch day.  They are like bloggers but they put their posts out via email and social media.  They are what drives most successful fundraising, and if you don’t at least have a few strategic partners in place for your launch, then you are missing out on a huge opportunity.
