Nothing gets the JustGiving office more excited than coming up with new ways for you to share your awesome fundraising. So, needless to say, we’re pretty excited to tell you about these new gems.
Facebook Recommend and Tweet
Making a donation to your JustGiving page is not the only way that your supporters can boost your fundraising. It’s all about getting your page out there and to as many potential donors as possible, so we’ve made it even easier for your supporters to help you do just that.
Facebook Recommend. At the bottom of the story on your JustGiving page, there is now the opportunity to Recommend the page on Facebook. Just one click of this and your supporters will have declared their love for your fundraising page on their own Facebook wall, making it even easier to extending that support to friends of friends… and maybe even friends of friends of friends!
Twitter Button. Also, if your supporters have jumped on the Twitter bandwagon, they can use their Twitter account as a great way to publicise your page. Much like clicking on Facebook Recommend, they can click on the Tweet button and be fast tracked to tweeting your fundraising page to their followers. When someone clicks on the button, they’ll find a tweet already to go (that they can of course edit) handily complete with a link to your page.
If you print out a copy of your fundraising page, you’ll see that it has a great new hidden feature. Your page is now complete with it’s very own unique QR code. A QR code (much like a barcode) means that whenever you run into any potential donors, they can simply scan your page with their mobile phone and donate there and then. They will need a barcode reader application on their phone (there are tons of free apps available from all app stores) that they use to scan the QR code image on your page. Once scanned, a web page will open in their phone’s browser and the donation process has begun!
If you have an Android phone, you can now keep track of your fundraising on the go by downloading our new Android app. Once downloaded from the Android market, you can let your supporters know all the latest goings on with your fundraising by updating your JustGiving page and uploading photos straight from your android phone. You’ll also be able to keep yourself in the loop by scheduling donation alerts so no matter where you are, you’ll know exactly who has donated as and when they do it.
