Some tips on getting the most of your JustGiving page
Make it personal
This is your page, so show your personality, make it fun and vibrant! Choose a fun page title, explain what your challenge involves and what Autism and Spectrum mean to you. Make sure you include regular updates on how you’re getting on with preparations for the event and all goings on for the event. It will keep people interested and they’ll be more inclined to sponsor you. People who put a photo on their page raise 53% more than those who don’t so make sure you get a photo either of you or the event, be creative!
Set a target
People who set a target on their page raise on average 40% more than those who don’t! Having a target encourages people to donate as they will want to help you get to your goal.
Share, share and share
Share your JustGiving page with as many people as possible and ask those people to share. Post it to your social media channels, put on leaflets and anything else that might get it out there. The more people that see your page the more likely you will be to hit your goal. Remember to thank everyone personally if you can. Supporters will appreciate the personal touch and will be more likely to support you in the future.
The end of the event is just as important as the start
Don’t stop once your event or activity is over. Let people know how it went, post some photos, videos and updates to let people continue to show their support.
