    • JustGiving c. 2001 We tried many things • Being a ‘portal’ • Payroll Giving • Direct donations • In memory microsites Try something, measure it, try something else
    • It took near 2 years to find the thing thatworked Try something, measure it, try something else
    • 2. Prioritise user feedback
    • Getfundraising page. the first listening Peter raised £800 on And We love being in the user feedback lab he told us what worked and what didn’t We listened to our helpdesk And we kept on listening to everyone using the site. And making sure they liked it enough to tell others Prioritise user feedback
    • 3. Use personal stories rather than organisational ones http://www.justgiving.com/tea-birds
    • This is the most valuable data on our website Use personal stories rather than organisational ones
    • Charities understand this too http://www.sightsavers.org/ http://www.oxfam.org.uk/ http://www.nspcc.org.uk/
    • Chuggers (aka charity muggers) Use personal stories rather than organisational ones http://www.flickr.com/photos/7802947@N02/5656054207/

    • 4. Social obligation is a great motivator http://www.flickr.com/photos/ausnahmezustand/4752989186/
    • It’s a big ask... Please sponsor me Fundraiser • I value our relationship I hope you do too • This is embarrassing • What if you say no? Social obligation is a great motivator
    • It’s a big ask... Of course I will Sponsor • He values me as a friend • I bet he’s asking my friends • If I don’t it’ll be embarrassing • The longer I leave it the worse it’ll be Social obligation is a great motivator
    • The opposite is generally true for direct giving... •Emergencies have an immediate impact • People react quickly • The impetus to give decreases over time Social obligation is a great motivator http://www.flickr.com/photos/dfid/5330986750
    • The Facebook effect - a *rough* ROI 26,981 Number of likes from 29 September to 4th December 2010 If 6 likes = 1 donation 1 like ~ 1/6th of a donation Average donation is £32 1 like ~ £5 to charity Social obligation is a great motivator
