By Juliet Davenport, Nonprofit Ambassador, DonationMatch Spring fundraising time is among us. How are you planning to promote your event? According to Socialable, one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal should be social media. Because of its wide audience reach, social media can be used to "increase registration, increase buzz, and ultimately increase attendance." However, in considering your social media platform, it's important to keep in mind who your target audience is and how they interact online. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are likely your best options.
Another boost is the new Pro Event page upgrade on DonationMatch. It has built-in extra help for your event to get found by search engines like Google and Bing and Facebook sharing widgets. What makes it super convenient is automatic donor promotion and the ability to export donation details.
For details on using social media to help promote your event, and for useful tools to help you manage it, read more on Socialable's post here.
