Increasing Campaign Contributions

Posted by GoFundify Team on November 27, 2016

Check List

Content

A successful Campaign is built on quality content.  The Campaign editor allows for unlimited text, images and links to be added to a Campaign. The more text information you can provide along with links and images the more traffic your Campaign will receive. You can add website links associated with your cause and any social media links that may add authenticity to your Campaign. Make your Campaign visually appealing.  A successful Campaign almost always has a genuine heartfelt detailed story with several images and links.

Profile

Your user profile should include your user avatar, an email address and quality content within your user bio section.  Contributors need to associate the creator to the Campaign.  Authenticity is just as important in your profile as it is in your Campaign.  Your profile also displays any contributions you have personally made to your Campaign or any other fundify Campaign.  Consider making contributions to other inspiring Campaigns yourself.  It will go a long way to demonstrate your own generosity.

Updates

The Campaign should be updated regularly in the “Updates” field within the Campaign edit box. Contributors have a vested interest in your cause and appreciate regular progress updates along with your genuine appreciative comments. 

Comments

Contributors want to see a Campaign creator regularly engaged with their Campaign and acknowledging their contributors and their comments – provide regular feedback and appreciation for contributions.

Share

Leverage social media and share, share, share.  See our Blog article on Promoting Your Campaign.

Rewards

Use the fundify rewards feature and develop interesting and unique rewards to promote your Campaign. More information on rewards can be found here.

Featured

The GoFundify team selects the best Campaigns and features them first on the fundify home page and in the Featured Campaigns category.  Campaigns selected as featured receive more traffic and views than non-featured Campaigns with a greater chance of being successful.  If your Campaign meets all of the above criteria and you have liked our facebook page, send a message to the GoFundify team requesting your Campaign be selected as an inspiring featured Campaign.

Trending 

The fundify home page link Trending Now always highlights Campaigns that are frequently being shared on social media.  This allows more traffic and exponential increases in sharing resulting in increased contributions.  The GoFundify team monitors these trends and selects designated Campaigns to be highlighted.  To have your Campaign listed as Trending Now share your Campaign links frequently and ask others to share them too and maybe your Campaign will be selected.

Business Start-up Basics

Posted by GoFundify Team on November 20, 2016
Business Start-ups

Business start-ups are often campaigned slightly different than causes and charities.  Most leverage the fundify "All or Nothing" feature.  Although not required, selecting this feature when submitting your Campaign for approval will allow a Campaign creator access to the "adaptive" payment processing feature. This feature allows funds to be contributed but stay in a pending state until the Campaign has reached or surpassed its fundraising goal. If the Campaign fundraising goal is not met within the defined timeline or duration* reserved funds are released and a contributor is not charged.  

The fundify rewards feature would usually be utilized for a business start-up Campaign. This feature allows a Campaign to offer rewards based on a defined contribution level. More information on the rewards feature can be found here.

The GoFundify team is always available to assist in maximizing your Campaign content for effective results. Contact the team here.

*Maximum Campaign duration for adaptive payment processing is 60 days.

Building Campaign Rewards

Posted by GoFundify Team on November 19, 2016
Campaign Rewards

Increase the number of contributions and Campaign views by offering rewards based on defined contribution levels. Rewards can be managed from the rewards tab on the Campaign page only after you have saved your first Campaign.

Example

Contribute 20$ = Reward #1
Contribute 50$ = Reward #2
Contribute 100$ = Reward #3

Your Campaign Tabs

The following tabs help you manage your Campaign.

Rewards
Contributions
Stats
Files

The Rewards tab helps you manage and develop your rewards along with adding images and text. Rewards can be offered to a contributor but after a reward has been claimed by a contributed it cannot be edited or removed. A reward can be a memento, a small gift, a donation tax receipt*, a deal to a business start-up or almost anything as long as it meets our Terms.

The Contributions tab tracks all contributions including a users email address and shipping address used for delivering a reward - if applicable.

The Stats tab tracks internet traffic to your Campaign.  This allows you to monitor and edit your Campaign's success based on how well it is doing.  As well, you can download a full report of all your Campaign stats.

The Files tab allows you to upload addition files to assist with Campaign presentation such as images and video or downloadable files used in offering rewards.
