  20. 20. Race for the Cure Susan G Komen • Very Cluttered, and Boring • Difficult to Engage • Web platform is not the main focus of the fundraiser• Incredibly Rudimentary

  23. 23. Invisible Children • Homepage is a little cluttered • The “Act and Ask” is less clear here than on other P to P organizations • The separation from “dashboard” to actual page is very confusing• Liked that people could have a “live feedback”• Updates on the amount people give
  24. 24. • Love the campaign graphics, yet this does not invoke action • You can’t access this on your personal fundraising page this must be done BEFORE • Only small paragraph description• This visualization of how much people are donating is engaging
  25. 25. Water for People • “Gets the job done” but not interactive • Too cluttered and not engaging• “Ask” and “Verbage” is incredibly informal
  26. 26. • You can upload videos, pictures, and even name your campaign• Beautiful, Engaging, and Creative ideas for fundraising tactics to increase fundraising
  27. 27. 2.1. 3.
  28. 28. Team Compassion • Convio Platform that TWV, 30Hr, Gift Catalog all use • Dashboard separation confusing

  32. 32. • There are beautiful graphics, relatively easy to use, very simple• Love the “story” being told and dedication to water
  33. 33. • Tied for favorite peer to peer platform• Simple, engaging, clear
  34. 34. • The personal connection to the entrepreneur and the detailed description allows for connectivity• Makes you feel proud of your donation!
  35. 35. 30 Hour Famine • Again, the Convio platform creates a separation between the dashboard and your personal page with is confusing• Does not allow for creativity or usability when telling your story or fundraising
  36. 36. Gift Catalog • The mission of the catalog is wonderful, but it is confusing to navigate and unclear

  42. 42. Beautiful, Simple- to- use, andCommitment to the work through great Interactivephotography There is a real team feeling
  43. 43. Things to note as we move forward* Constant Updating from Organization, March of * Immediate Tax Deductible ReceiptDimes was the best: Military Campaign * Help provide people with creativity and ideas for un-traditional fundraising skills
  44. 44. * Highly Integrated with Facebook, with a step-by-step process * Easy step by step integration and beautiful graphics on all WV platforms * Ability to edit your “Personal Fundraising” page on the website directly without the “Dashboard” component * If there is a “team” component there must be a clear “Call to Action” for the team leaders
  45. 45. Food for Thought• Just because a platform is “boring” or “cool” does not mean this is correlated to their revenue• Every platform conveys its personality and targets a specific demographic• A peer-to-peer fundraising channel is sometimes the core representation of an organization’s brand and identity.• How can other events besides athletic races, events or campaigns leverage a peer to peer fundraising model?• There is something to be said for a seamless, flowing experience on a website platform that provides the user with an enjoyable and engaging experience! Let World Vision capitalize on this insight!
