So you’ve created a Chance page for your pet and now you’re in need of one very important thing – donations! Well have no fear; the Pet Chance Team is here to give you tips on how to boost your donation frequency.
As discussed in a previous blog post, crowdfunding sites are most successful when users get the word out about their cause. This means directing all of your family members, friends, neighbors and acquaintances to your Chance page through resources such as social media, e-mail, or simply by word of mouth. This will really help get the ball rolling with publicity AND donations for your pet’s Chance.
We know it can be difficult to find the right words when reaching out to those around you so we have put together a few templates that you can copy and paste to Facebook, Twitter, e-mails, or other social media outlets. Don’t forget to personalize your posts and messages. Include names, pictures, descriptions, and – most importantly – a link to your Chance page!
