Thank you for participating in our 2018 #Salud4All campaign! We are excited to have you join us and want to ensure that you have everything you need to be successful in your crowdfunding campaign. Below you will find best practices and suggested messaging. Feel free to edit and make changes as you see fit. This is to help you build capacity and get your social feed going.
5 Best Practices
1. Pick a Dashboard
Dashboards help you manage your social; you don’t have to post in real time. Find a dashboard that helps you plan your messaging so you can schedule it ahead of time and let it work for you.
2. Images and Photos are Gold
We’ve created these graphics for you to use and add your logo (use a .png file to add a logo with a transparent background). But if you want to create your own graphics with our logos and your photos for your campaign, use either one of these platforms to help you create your awesome graphics:
- Canva.com (mostly free – some templates you pay for)
- Adobe Spark (mostly free – some templates you pay for)
The best part: no graphic design skills needed because the templates are already built in You can also create a short 30 second to 1 minute infographic video using Adobe Spark. Video will perform better than graphics, but keep it short and sweet. Upload the video directly to Facebook so that it has a higher reach than a linked YouTube video.
3. Hashtags Matter
Use #Salud4All in your messaging so that we can see it and share your awesome campaign. The hashtag is how we monitor your campaign and give it an extra boost! It also allows you to join a larger conversation to help create buzz and build momentum.
4. Updates are Important
Your audience wants to know how you’re doing and how they can help. Give them updates on your progress. Let them know how much is still left to raise in the day in small increments so that it seems achievable: i.e. “Thank you to everyone who has donated! We’re just $50 away from reaching $1000! Can you pitch in and help us get there before the end of the day?”
Then, update them when you reached that goal and push them to the next increment. Go up slowly in increments of $25 at a time. Make that goal seem attainable. Don’t overwhelm them but bring them along. Feel free to give video updates as well!
5. Thank Your Donors
People want to feel appreciated when they give to special causes. They want to feel their contribution will make an impact. If you have their names, thank them in batches as they give. This requires a little bit of dedication to your online community management, but it will pay off.
Feel free to use and tweak the below messages to build excitement for your campaign!
