1. Tell your story.
People give from the heart, not the head. Share why you care about your cause, and your supporters will too. Make a video that shows how much this project means to you. Making a video can more than double the amount of money raised.
2. Remind and repeat.
On average someone must see something 7 times before they act on it. Use the power of email and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn too) to remind your friends a family about you campaignat least 7 times! It takes a bit of persistence, but its totally worth it.
3. Offer unique sponsorship rewards, like posting your supporters names on your website, or giving a chance to win a copy of your creation.
4. Say thanks.
After someone donates, say thank you on Facebook or Twitter, and tag his or her name. This will make your donors feel awesome, and encourage others to give.
I enjoyed using PiggyBackr, it was easier to use, simple to understand, and very straight to the point. The features helped me to better communicate with the people that I wanted to support my endeavors. Previous fundraisers don't go so well because we usually end up doing something along the lines of a bake sale or car wash, which doesn't bring in a lot of money. With Piggybackr, I was able to tell the people I was contacting why I was raising this money, what it goes to, and how it would help. I found that to be better because then people would understand what we are trying to do. - Danielle High Tech High Robotics Team
