Crowdfunding on social media: How to cut through the noise and stand out!

As a crowdfunding coach for YouHelp.com, one of the main topics I discuss with my clients is how to cut through the noise. There are over 800 million posts on social media every day, and the only way someone is going to view your crowdfunding campaign is by cutting through the noise.

Since we were in Kindergarten, our teachers Have Taught Usto fit into a cookie-cutter system.

With millions of students in thousands of schools, our educational system can only function in this type of environment. And so, as children we were consistently admonished for any and all wild or unusual behavior. We became well trained, and over the years, we learned to fit in.

Fear of being humiliated by our peers for trying to express ourselves the way we want caused a mental block for most of us when it comes to advertising our initiatives.

When it comes to your marketing your Crowdfunding campaign on social media, be prepared to go places you haven’t gone in maybe forever.

For a successful campaign on social media, you must feel so connected to your cause that you are willing to take the risk of embarrassment and humiliation from those that are jealous of you.

I remember years ago my uncle Bob said to me ”Yitz, be careful in life. If you stick your head above the crowd, you will get your head chopped off.”

It took me years to understand what he meant: that no matter what you accomplish in life, don’t lift your head above anyone else out of ego. Instead, continue to see yourself as just another face in the crowd.

However, the only way you can be seen is to do something more creative than others.

I want to be clear I am against any type of unhealthy or life-threatening ideas just to stand out! That is not what I mean. I mean expressing yourself in a healthy way that shows your individuality and the importance of your campaign. Do something else — something different! Something smarter. Use your creativity to stand out on social media.

So, how DO you stand out?

Just like there are no two identical snowflakes, there are no two identical people. Each person has his or her personal profile, with his or her personal experiences. Those life experiences are what led you to decide to launch your nonprofit’s crowdfunding campaign on YouHelp.com. By sharing what you’ve learned on your journey through life, you become more authentic. And this authenticity is exactly what your social media audience wants.

to cut through the noise — and share your quest with others –you must find your voice!

As a crowdfunding coach, I work with campaign leaders to help them find their voice. This is the voice that’s you’ve toned down over the years for the sake of uniformity and to spare yourself possible humiliation.

Once we find your voice, we can choose which social media platforms are the best for your campaign.

For some, it might mean creating personal videos and uploading them to your YouTube channel. For others, it could be creating a weekly podcast. But once you have found your voice and you are ready to sing your song, I assure you that the crowd will quiet itself in order to hear you.

Crowdfunding For Nonprofits Made Easy.

Crowdfunding for nonprofit’s made easy. This resource page will help your nonprofit with a few great fundraising ideas and free software to help you. We understand how difficult it is for nonprofits to keep up with all the new technology in online fundraising.

Our first idea for crowdfunding for you today is an online auction.

Our first idea for crowdfunding for you today is an online auction. Nonprofits can reach out to their donors for donations of unique items that can generate more money in an online auction then they ever thought possible.

Online auctions have become very popular during COVID 19

Online auctions have become very popular during COVID 19. The process is rather simple and there is a great software for nonprofits to help them. The leading site for nonprofits is called https://www.biddingowl.com/

Another new reality for nonprofits is integrating online fundraising and offline fundraising into the same software. Just imagine one Sunday afternoon you bump into one of your charity supporters at a community event. The donor is in a jolly mood and he says “how much did I give last year to your charity? I am thinking about doubling it”!

Back in the day you would have said well I am not sure I will check when I get into the office and get back to you. Not anymore today there is a very good software that will help you from your smartphone.

The software integrates all different types of donations including crowdfunding online donations. Keeping track of your donors has never been easier.

We recommend a website called http://www.donortools.com to help your nonprofit.

Text Fundraising has also shown signs of potential for nonprofits.

Text Fundraising has also shown signs of potential for nonprofits. A few years back an organization that I coached raised fifty thousand dollars using a text fundraising App. The organization located in Manchester England held a concert with a famous singer.

They placed a massive screen behind the stage. The organization prompted the crowd of donors to text in their donation amounts throughout the night. While the singing and cheer filled the hall. Donors competed with each other to be the highest donation on the massive screen!

We recommend a software called https://www.qgiv.com for your next text fundraising event.

Crowdfunding for nonprofits is much easier when you have someone to talk to and can advise you along the way. At Youhelp.com we really care for our clients. Being a boutique platform we can afford to give your nonprofit the customization you need for a crowdfunding campaign.
