Fabrily Campaign Promotion: How to promote your fundraiser on Facebook

Millions of organizations and individuals use Facebook on a daily basis; not only is it a convenient way to connect with others but it serves as a great tool for sharing your Fabrily campaign with friends, family, and supporters. The best part about using social media to promote your campaign is that it’s completely free! In this blog post we’ll cover several different ways you can promote your fundraising campaign on Facebook. We also provide tips and examples on promoting your campaign using Twitter (click the link to visit the post!) as well as how to generate more online impressions for your cause once the campaign is over (hint – it involves photos!).

Before we get started, go ahead and reserve the first item from your campaign! Once people see that others are reserving items they are more likely to purchase one themselves.

Here is a list of ways you can promote your fundraising campaign using Facebook:

  • Update your photo and/or cover photo to feature the campaign and always include the link to the Fabrily campaign in the design (if you need help creating promo images for a special campaign let us know – send us a message on Facebook or Twitter):

Here is an example of the Blackfish Brigade using a cover photo to promote their fundraising campaign

  • Make sure you post about your campaign on Facebook every 2-3 days and include a direct link to the campaign page in your posts
  • Include images and appropriate text about your campaign on both your personal page as well as your Facebook fan page (if you have one), use words like “Limited Edition”, “One time only”, “Official T-shirt/Hoodie”, “By request”, etc… to attract attention of your followers.
Example of a post shared on the Blackfish Brigade Facebook page - notice the language used (limited edition) and the link they included to the campaign page

    up! Aside from that, fantastic blog!
