Facebook has over 500 million active users; 50% of which log on to Facebook in any given day. According to Facebook, people spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook. – that’s a lot of time!
Look at your Facebook Page. How many friends do you have? Facebook says the average user has 130 friends; a pretty good-sized crowd.
What if you were looking to have a party with 130 people to tell them about the awesome fundraiser you’re doing for that cause you’re super passionate about – you would need a place to have the event, a motivating factor to get all of your friends to travel to the same space, and quite a bit of luck that everyone had open availability on the day you’d chosen. Sounds pretty stressful to us…
Though in-person events are a great way to connect with friends, family, and potential donors, live events are not a practical model to base all your fundraising efforts around. If you’re going to raise the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time, you need to be efficient.
And what’s practically synonymous with efficiency in today’s world? Technology.
The technology embedded into Fundraise.com makes connecting with Facebook friends quick, easy, and super efficient. You can connect with all of your friends, but your friends can also connect with their other friends to let them know about your fundraiser.
When you start to do the math all of those people add up really quickly (and so will the money you raise).
Using the Facebook tool from the free Fundraise.com toolkit you can make your fundraiser hundreds of people stronger, instantly.
