Fundraising Better With Link Placement
If you want to raise money online for a fundraiser, it is important to select the right platform. At DonationTo, we enable anyone to avoid credit card fees, and we also enable you to keep 100 percent of the money that is donated. In order to encourage people to donate online, you will need to make sure that you utilize proper link placement. To make this process easier, we have compiled a list of four helpful link placement tips.
1.) Get Your Link Placed on a School Website
Whether you work for a school or have a contact who does, it is always a good idea to get the link to your online fundraising campaign placed on any website that has an .edu domain extension. In fact, getting your link on one of these sites is the search engine equivalent of getting a gold star because it will ensure a higher ranking spot. Consider for example how much more likely you are to visit a website that is listed in the first few spots on Google. This added legitimacy and visibility will encourage people to donate online.
2.) Social Media Posts
You should place the link to your online fundraising campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Google Plus. Consider for example how often you have found out about fundraisers and other items of interest by reading your friends’ posts on Facebook. You can use this to your advantage to increase your ability to raise money online. However, you must make sure that you post the link multiple times. If you only post it once, your fundraising ideas will not be seen by a wide enough audience. Therefore, you should make sure that you post your link on each social media site once a week.
3.) Use the About Section of Your Social Media Profiles
Each of your social media profiles will have an “About” section, and you can use this to increase visibility of your fundraiser. For example, by putting the link and a basic description of the fundraiser in your Facebook “About” section, you will make it easy for people to learn about your fundraising ideas. If your profile page is public, the link will also be indexed by search engines.
4.) Use Your Email Signature
When people are first learning how to fundraise, they often overlook the easiest ways to get their message in front of a wide audience. For example, you can put the link to your fundraiser in your automatic email signature to ensure that everyone you send an email to will have access to it. You should also ask your supporters to add the link to their signature to help make your fundraiser go viral.
