There are plenty of reasons why you should share updates with your donors and those following your campaign. If you're ready to share your progress, but aren't sure where to start, read on for step-by-step instructions for how to post an update to your campaign page!
Then, head to your live campaign page.
Select "updates" from your toolbar, and then "post an update."
Give your update post a title and fill out a short description.
Keep the title short. Something like "Thank you!" or "We're halfway there!" will do the trick.
Link to a live image URL.
Updates can currently only include images that are already hosted somewhere on the Internet. You can use the URL from an image hosting service like Imgur or Flickr, for example. If you have an image on your Facebook or social media account, you can right click the image, select "copy link address", then paste the URL into the image properties box.
Don't forget to save your work!
Hooray, now your update is public!
Here's a pro tip: Instead of sending out an email or posting the progress on your social media page, share the link to the ioby update via your communication channels. This sharing strategy will create additional traffic to your current fundraising campaign, so as your network reads your story, they will have the chance to be a part of it by making their tax deductible gift right there on your ioby campaign page!
