What about some money?

online fundraisingYou know that moment when you are in desperate need of money? I think that we all do… Whatever the reason is; a personal project, a social cause or just a dream that needs funding, there are always people out there that are willing to help or to get some visibility because they’ve been kind to someone else.
We’ve all heard of terms such as crowd-funding or fundraising. According to Wikipedia, fundraising is: “is the process of soliciting and gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies.”
So, how can you do that? How can you convince strangers to give your cause money, or other resources that you need? Here are some tips & tricks that may help you.
know your cause. Nobody will help someone who doesn’t even know his project by heart.
have a well defined objective. Is the same problem like the previous case. You have to know for sure what you’ll gain/obtain after their help. Have a specific impact with your idea.
sharing is caring. Implement a customer care strategy for those who helped you. Send them newsletters with pictures and the progress of the project. Show them that their help was important and that is happening because of them.
don’t go too far. Don’t forget that is a fundraising and people will help you with how much they want or can. Be thankful for their help and don’t ask for more.
go online. We’re living in a era where everything is digital. There are a lot of online fundraising platforms. Promote your project online.
Online fundraising is the most efficient method that you can choose if you want to raise money fast for your project or cause. The platforms are easy to use and you can put all the details that your possible sponsors might want to know.
Be confident and sing up on a online fundraising platform and make you dream come true!
