It’s time to get excited about crowdfunding!

It’s time to get excited about crowdfunding! No one likes to leave their comfort zones. Since this pandemic has hit we have had all the excuses in the world to wait. Wait for a vaccine, wait for a new President, and wait for a new year.

For us to survive, we are going to have to venture out of our comfort zones and into new and unchartered terrain. For many nonprofits coming up with fundraising, our annual budget depended on repeating past methods of success. Some relied heavily on Government grants others on their board members and for some others, it might have been their annual fundraising banquet.

Here we are another day has gone by and we haven’t left our comfort zone in search of new solutions to raise money for the important work we do.

Here we are another day has gone by and we haven’t left our comfort zone in search of new solutions to raise money for the important work we do. The reason why we haven’t yet pivoted is that we are afraid of failure. We are afraid of new and different. Our brains have been programmed to stay away from failure and only go down paths that are known to us.

We can’t stand the thought of our coworkers making some negative comments confirming our biggest fears that the project was a big flunk.

Another common excuse is that we just don’t have the time to learn how to crowdfund.

2020 Crowdfunding Election Tactics

2020 Crowdfunding Election Tactics that we can learn from. Nonprofits are constantly looking to educate themselves on successful crowdfunding tactics. There are a few tactics that seemed to be most effective for the candidates that we can learn from.

The first tactic was the use of short message videos.

The first tactic was the use of short message videos. There is something about a short video that captures the attention over writing. Nonprofits have to learn how to convey a short direct message and post in real time. Videos have a way of capturing the enthusiasm of the moment. So when your nonprofit is out there doing what you do best make sure someone is capturing it on video .As you record your activities make sure to verbally explain the positive impacts your actions are making in the world.

One of YouHelps nonprofits Leading by Feeding doing amazing work for families effected by COVID19. They had lines of cars for miles lined up to pick up free food packages. The long line showed in real time the importance of the food drive. It is so important to share some story’s of families that were positively effected by the drive while taping.

Another important tip was the Hall of Fame Donation page

Another important tip was the Hall of Fame Donation page. One candidate created a special page called the eternal hall of fame page. Each and every donation given within the next 24 hours will enter in a special hall of fame page. This is an honorable page dedicated to thank the donors that helped during a time of extreme need of funds.

In truth every nonprofit can create such a page and YouHelp.com can assist your nonprofit with the messaging of your hall of fame page.

One important lesson that we noticed repeated itself on several campaigns was the dollar amount that was being requested. The most popular amount that I noticed was the amount of $4. This means that for under $5 a person can make a positive impact. This is not a significant amount of money for most people on social media. The idea is that having a low entry level convinces the average donor that he can help without too much of a sacrifice.

Nonprofits can gain alot by promoting a low entry amount and follow up at a later date for a more significant donation. As well once donors have already clicked to contribute a one time $4 donation there donation will automatically be shared on our social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram thanking them for their donation.
