4. Don't be afraid to share
Sharing on Facebook, social media and WhatsApp raises more. Don’t be afraid, people want to hear about the good things you are doing.
5. Don't forget about email
There are lots of your friends, colleagues and neighbours who are not on social networks but would love to hear about what you are doing.
6. Add a video or livestream
Add a video as a cover photo by adding a YouTube link. Videos really help tell your story and why your cause is so important. You can also livestream directly on your page to show how you are raising money. Find out more here.
7. Let the charity know
Tell the charity so they can help you spread the word. By letting them know you have set up a fundraising page they may be able to share to their social pages and through email.
8. Update your page
Let supporters know how you are doing by updating your page often, they will enjoy following your progress and you can even do it through our smartphone app.
9. Encourage others
Convince your friends to take part and raise money as well ...as it makes the experience more fun!
10. It's not over 'til it's over
20% of donations come in after an event has ended, so make sure you follow up the event with an update about how you did.
