4. Reach Out
This is the most important step for fundraising success. The more times you do this step, the more money your group will raise. Don't feel like you need to stop at 20 messages here!
You can reach out any way you see fit, but we find texting to be the most efficient. Our fundraising websites are highly optimized for mobile use, so your supporters will be able to click the link in your text and complete the check out process on their phones without needing a laptop or tablet.
Text messages are free to send, so take advantage of this if you have large fundraising aspirations!
5. Follow Up
Have you ever went to order something on your phone, but gotten distracted before the check out? You are not alone. In fact, there is a good chance that happened to Uncle George the first time you texted him about your fundraiser.
If you want to raise a lot of money, you need to text your entire brainstorm list 24-48 hours before the end of your fundraiser, and let them know your fundraiser is ending soon. Following up is a necessary part of any great fundraiser.
