A fundraiser needs to be advertised if you want it to be successful. If you don’t advertise it, you probably won’t have a good turnout which means you won’t raise much money. If you need ideas on how to advertise your fundraiser, take a look at the three ways in this article.
#1 – Use Flyers to Advertise Your Fundraiser
Some people think flyers are a part of the past, but I assure you, it is one of the best ways to get the word out about your upcoming fundraiser. Before you post these flyers in stores, you will have to ask the owner. Most people don’t mind. Every now and then you will find someone who wants to be a butt and won’t allow you to hang them. You can also hang the flyers on poles to grab attention as well.
#2 – Post Your Fundraiser on Facebook
Facebook is another great way to advertise your upcoming fundraiser. You can create an event on Facebook and invite all of your friends to the event. When you create the event, you will need to list the details about the fundraiser like when it will be, what it’s for, and so on. Keep making posts on your wall as well and ask your friends to share it to their wall so their friends can see it as well. This is one of the best ways to advertise your upcoming fundraiser.
#3 – List the Fundraiser in Your Local Newspaper
You should also list the fundraiser in your local newspaper. You can buy the space you want and place the details of the fundraiser in the paper. It is important that you place an ad that will grab people’s attention. Make sure you put it in the paper at least a couple of weeks before the actual fundraiser so people will have time to prepare.
Those are the three best ways to advertise your upcoming fundraiser. You can also use Twitter if you have an account to help spread the word on there.
