9 TIPS FOR FUNDRAISING
ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media can be a powerful fundraising tool with the right strategy in place. Here are a few tips to help you solicit donations via your social media accounts.
1. Status Updates
Status updates are easy. They are the bread and butter of telling your network what you are up to. As a fundraiser you should be posting an update fairly regularly, and you posts should always have your personal fundraising page url included in the message. Maybe you’ve had a big donation, or gone for a particularly hardcore training session – it could be anything, but keep your updates fresh and interesting.
2. Dress Your Profile
Upload a new profile or cover photo with something related to our event (a picture of you training or a Best Buddies logo) and add a link to your donation webpage in the image description.
3. Share Official Best Buddies Challenge Content
Follow our official event accounts and share our posted content followed by a personal message and link to your donation webpage.
