Title Goes Here
Every Shareagift page starts with a title and we have seen many great and captivating ones over the years. Take some time to think about what your cause is, whom it is for and how this will impact them. Try to summarise this in the title whilst at the same time making it interesting and exciting so that people will be drawn into your campaign. A good title can often be the making of a campaign!

Fill It Up!
One of the best ways to convince people to donate to your campaign is by ensuring that your page has all the relevant information on it. A great picture, an inspiring story or simply a good explanation of what you aim to achieve can really impact the way that your page is perceived. If you are creating a campaign to raise money for a charity and have done so successfully in the past or know people that have, according to the Guardian, giving evidence of this and showing a personal connection is a great way to influence people to donate to your cause.
Have A Modest Goal
One way of influencing more donations is to make sure that the goal you are trying to achieve is actually attainable. Often trying to raise too much can put people off contributing as they might not think that their donation will make much of a difference. Getting closer to your goal will often generate excitement, as people will see that you have almost reached your target and with their help it could become a reality.
Never Stop Sharing!
Many of the campaigns we have seen here at Shareagift often start off fantastically but then as time goes on lose traction. One way to try and avoid this from happening is to share your idea all the way through your campaign. One of the best ways to do this is through social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Keeping your friends and followers up to date with how your campaign is performing can drive a lot of traffic to your page especially if this is done on a regular basis. Social media sites are so full of content, and posting about your campaign regularly ensures that everyone will get a chance to read about it.
Thank Everyone Who Helped
Ensuring that you take the time to personally thank everyone for their help and donations will make your donators feel valued and it is obviously a very nice thing to do. This may also encourage people to donate to your future campaigns as you have shown your gratitude towards them, and after all, Shareagift is all about bringing people together!
