How to run a fundraising campaign on YouTube?
Fundraising can be a long and tiresome process when done without sufficient planning. However, it does not always have to be so. A well-planned YouTube fundraising campaign will attract the masses and ensures that you can skip out on the exhausting step of juggling all parts and pieces of the event. YouTube marketing is one of the biggest forms of advertising for brands and products on a social media platform. As such, it has also become the go-to platform for non-profit organizations and even individuals to boost their fundraiser’s reach.
Cause marketing is slowly gaining momentum and this form of marketing has made it easier than ever to host a variety of fundraisers. It is a very reliable method that guarantees that more and more people come in contact with the campaign to support it. Here’s all you need to know about how to run a successful fundraising campaign on YouTube:
Make a catchy Video Campaign
This is the most obvious step to be taken when hoping to launch a YouTube fundraiser. Advertisements are as effective on the internet as they’re on regular media. If an advertisement is catchy and good enough to pique the curiosity of the consumer, there’s no reason for the campaign to fail.
Making a video campaign is the first task to be checked off the list. YouTube is a video-sharing platform and it’s only fair to advertise your fundraiser through a video that introduces the masses to the campaign you’re running.
Offer Quality not Quantity
Your video campaign does not need to go into the nitty gritty of every plan related to the fundraiser. Keep it simple and to the point. Tell the viewers what your fundraising campaign hopes to accomplish and the target set for the same.
An effective YouTube marketing video does not have to be long, it has to offer value. It should also tell the customers that your cause marketing is different from all the other campaigns they come across on YouTube. A successful video campaign also convinces the people that they’re donating to a just and legitimate cause.
Make sure that video quality is also up to the mark, it reflects on your brand and the campaign as a whole.
Use the YouTube Ad feature
The ad feature on this platform sponsors your videos and shows them as ads to the viewer. This is a very popular feature and is used by brands to boost their sales, YouTube channels to gain more reach. Fundraisers also use this feature due to similar reasons. It offers a chance to reach out to more people and whether it gets a positive response is entirely dependent on the video created for the same.
Be smart about setting target groups
The YouTube ad feature also allows the user to choose particular groups to specifically target them. The groups might be anyone that the user believes would be swayed when viewing the ad. It tells YouTube whom to target specifically depending on the kind of content they view or their unique interests.
Using the target words wisely will make all the difference in which target group receives the ad and which doesn’t. Similarly, if your listed target groups are off-the-mark, your video campaign will not be as effective.
YouTube is a large platform. It provides a massive opportunity to NGOs and private parties to expand the reach of their fundraising campaign on YouTube. YouTube marketing is starting to be seen as a viable means of cause marketing, and rightly so. In addition to marketing your fundraiser, it is prudent to use all YouTube features to the maximum possible level for a successful fundraiser on this platform.
