How to reach your audience
Maybe you’ve built up a strong community of supporters around your cause. But looking beyond your existing supporters can be powerful too! Here are a few ways you can consider reaching past supporters and new audiences alike.
Reach new audiences by appealing for donations through marketing activities including like paid social media advertisements, hanging flyers in your community, or even try TV and radio!
Reach supporters who have donated or fundraised for you before by sending them an email, sharing the QR code to your campaign, or leveraging your social media following.
How to connect with your audience
You might feel that messaging everyone is the right approach to get your Campaign out there – and you can’t go wrong with trying! But it’s worthwhile thinking more about your audience segments to make sure you’re not missing an opportunity for a more personalised approach.
When targeting your audience, consider what you’re asking them to do, and which groups might be more likely to act.
For example, if your campaign’s objective is to create a fundraising page (ask supporters to collect donations on your behalf), you might reach out to your most passionate supporters. On the other hand, if your objective is to get the most direct donations possible, you might reach out to a wider audience.
