These days it’s hard to differentiate between all of the social media platforms but we’ve come to embrace it. Luckily, these outlets are great tools to help take your fundraising efforts to the next level. Whether it’s sending an old school email or creating a Facebook event, there is a variety of ways social media can be utilized to help you do good.
We’ve made it easy for you to share your campaign page - simply click on the social icon at the bottom of your campaign and post away! That being said, let’s see what every platform is all about!
Share directly to Facebook from your campaign page. Consider posting on relevant Facebook groups, fan pages, and organization pages. We suggest posting 3 to 4 times a week, and keeping the content different and unique throughout.

Creating an event page or Facebook group is a great tool that can work in your advantage. Use them as a communication hub for your campaign by sharing pictures of your design, the importance of what you’re doing, and keeping your supporters up to date on your fundraising progress. Invite your Facebook friends to join you in raising money for your campaign.
Tweet pictures of your design. Tell your followers about it, and link it back to your campaign page. Use hashtags like #TeesWithLove. Share photos of you and your supporters wearing the tee. Tweet at your followers, and provide a call to action. With Twitter, you're able to post multiple times a day without bombarding your followers. Keep your tweets clean and concise. Share the most important information and direct them to the URL. We encourage you to share the campaign page or include it in your Twitter bio.
Share your t-shirt design and message! Posting photos of you and your supporters wearing your t-shirt is another great promotion tip to use. Include hashtags like #TeesWithLove. Always remember to include a call to action at the bottom of your posts!
The queen of visual marketing, Pinterest, leads among social media platforms to promote products. As a result, businesses generate sales and often build a substantial following. So if you have a lifestyle tee that you feel others would purchase or you're looking to target a new market, Pinterest should be your go-to channel.
The best way to tell your story and get support is to email your friends and family, directly. People can also help by forwarding your message onto others. Have a catchy subject line, keep it short and sweet. Explain why you created this campaign, where the money is going, and how long they have to purchase a tee!

Post a video of you telling your story and why you started a campaign. We recommend you wearing your tee, or showcasing it on the video. Explain to your audience the design of the shirt and different options you have available. Share it on Facebook, too. Be sure to include a link of your campaign on your video page so those viewers can contribute, too!
Everyone is a writer with a story worth sharing so give blogging a chance! This gives you the opportunity to not limit yourself to a few words, or summarizing an important post. You have creative freewill. Include the additional details that aren't 180 characters or less, and add all the visuals you'd like! Then share the blog on other social platforms, like Facebook!
