The Givelify mobile giving app is a wonderful tool to boost giving to your organization. But in order to get the most out of your Givelify presence, your supporters must make use of the technology.
How can you ensure that people use Givelify to make donations to your place of worship? We have some tips that will steer you in the right direction.
Add Online Giving Links to Social Media and Email
Another fantastic way to connect potential givers with your donation app is to share a direct link on social media. This enables donors who follow you on Facebook or Twitter to simply click a link and be taken directly to your profile, where they can quickly complete their donation.
Show How To Add A Memo Line To Donations
Whether they use an iPhone, Android device, or are giving online, your members have the ability to add a memo when making a donation. They can select from pre-set messaging or create a personalized memo of your own.
For example, they could select In memory of and enter the person’s name you wish to honor. Be sure to announce this feature when you’re introducing Givelify to your members.
Encourage and Reward Social Sharing
Social media is a valuable marketing tool, and it can also be useful for spreading the word about your fundraising efforts. That’s why the Givelify donation app incorporates social sharing directly into the giving process. To have even more success with your place of worship’s mobile giving app, it’s time to get social!
Show a Video at Offering Time
Showing a video at offering time is a great place to start. It will get your supporters excited about giving. To announce your new Givelify presence and educate people on how to use the mobile giving app, simply get this video in front of your audience.
Show the video during service. Project it onscreen at a special event. Share the link on your social media accounts. Use whatever means you typically communicate with your members to get the message across.
Spread the Word in Person and Online
Sharing the video demonstration is very helpful, but you don’t have to stop there. You can spread the word about your new Givelify mobile giving app in a variety of ways. Try talking about Givelify:
- in your e-mail newsletter
- in your bulletin or event handouts
- on your website
- on social media
Don’t forget to remind your supporters during each worship service. The more they hear about Givelify from a trusted source like you, the more likely they are to give the technology a try.
