If you answered:
Mostly A’s: OVERACHIEVER.
You are super on the ball with your campaign – similar to Sydney. You filled out an awesome travel story and added an inspiring video about why you are going abroad. You added multiple donor rewards to get your network involved and incentivize them to contribute more. Doing all this work is going to help you reach your goal in no time. So keep doing you, you overachiever!
PRO TIP: Don’t forget to write your donors thank you notes for supporting your campaign!
Mostly B’s: SUPER SHARER
You were on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat before they were cool. You love updating your donors on social media and are also taking any chance you can to post your campaign on Facebook. Sharing your campaign is a great way to get the word out there about your adventure and reach the most people. So keep up the great work with sharing your campaign on social media sites!
PRO TIP: Add a video to your campaign and share it on social media to interact with your donors!
Mostly C’s: GIVER
You love helping others. You filled out donor rewards in your travel story before you even knew they were a built-in option. You want to give back to your friends and family for helping you reach your goal. You say “thank you” publicly and privately for each donation and practice an attitude of gratitude. So get out there and continue to give back to your donors and inspire them!
PRO TIP: Don’t forget to post an update to keep your donors informed on how your campaign is going!
Mostly D’s: SLOW BUT STEADY
You took a while to finally publish your campaign, but when you did it was pretty much perfect. You only post your campaign on social media every once in awhile, and you think about different messages so your friends and family stay engaged. You’ve completed each checklist item methodically and thoroughly (or are in the process). You might take a little longer than others, but that isn’t going to deter you from meeting your goal! In fact, consistency is one of the best ways to earn steady donations!
PRO TIP: Check out the FundMyTravel Fundraising Toolkit to gain more inspiration for your campaign!
Mostly E’s: DAYDREAMER
You may not have even started your campaign yet or signed up, but that doesn’t stop you from dreaming of a perfect campaign and how you’ll spend your funds. You’ve done all the research about crowdfunding websites and have decided FundMyTravel is a perfect option for you. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start making your campaign perfect!
