Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk Marketing Kit

So you set up your GoodTwo Fundraising Campaign. Now what? Now you’ve gotta let everyone know about your deals. That’s just what this guide is for, so check out our tips, tricks and templates and get busy fundraising!

A few things to keep in mind:

  • You can log into your page at any time. By logging in, you can change your campaign information or select new deals.
  • Check out the “Share” toolbar right on your page. This will let you quickly send your page via Facebook, email and Twitter–the three quickest and easiest way to get the word out about your fundraiser.
  • Promote! Promote! Promote! Just like all your other fundraising efforts, your GoodTwo fundraiser will only work if people know it’s there. Send emails to your supporters throughout your campaign and let them know what you’re doing and why you’re raising money.
  • Questions? Email us at fundraisers@goodtwo.com.

How It Works

goodtwo™ is a fundraising platform: we provide your fundraising page and deals, and you market the deals to your network. For each deal that someone purchases from your page, your campaign receives the specified donation. The key to the success of your fundraiser is how much you promote your page to family members, friends, donors, and other people in your network (and don’t be shy about asking people to pass along the deals for you!). With GoodTwo, your donors get a great deal and you get a donation, so spread the word!

Fundraising Tips

  • Don’t Set it And Forget it (Because Your Donors Will Forget it Too)Treat your GoodTwo campaign like any other fundraising campaign your organization does. Send emails about it, post to Facebook and Tweet about it throughout the campaign.
  • Make Them an Offer They Can’t Refuse: All year, you ask your supporters for money, time, and resources. With GoodTwo, you’re actually rewarding them with a great deal. Keep that in mind when crafting your appeal: it’s a reward for the donor that has the added bonus of supporting a cause they care about.
  • Make it Viral: Remind your supporters that they can help your organization not only by buying deals from your campaign, but also by spreading the word to their family, friends and coworkers, especially if they see deals they’d like!

TEMPLATES

GoodTwo has put together a variety of templates that will allow you to insert the link to your fundraiser, copy, paste and go!

Dear Friends:

As many of you know, I am walking in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk this September in a quest to raise money for cancer research and treatment. Thank you all for your generous contributions. My latest fundraiser is a campaign called GoodTwo, and that’s good news for you. My GoodTwo campaign features some great deals on local businesses, from restaurants to salons to activities. Every time you buy a deal from my page, I get a donation towards my walker goal, and YOU get a great deal to enjoy. If you like CoupMe, Groupon, or Living Social, you’re going to love this fundraiser.

I hope you’ll take a second to check out my deals here: LINK TO CAMPAIGN PAGE. 

I hope that you’ll not only consider buying deals through GoodTwo to benefit this good cause, but that you’ll also pass along this link to your network, post on Facebook, and tweet about it to let your family members and friends know that these deals are available, and that their purchase will benefit a great cause.

Thank you!
