Phase 4 - Finish Line & Thanks

In the last week, push the sense of urgency to raise the last bit of funding for the campaign. Don’t peter out! Winners never quit, they keep going hard to the finish to reach the goal.
 

1. Email

 

Email Blast No. 3 – Closing Email With Sense of Urgency


Send at the start of the final week or last few days of campaign. Let supporters and members know they only have a few days left to join the journey and contribute to your goal. Also, share the good news to what has been accomplished so far and why they are making a difference. You can also use the email to share a list of all of the Boosters thus far in the campaign. People love reading their name and it encourages others to contribute. Include your Rally hashtag.

 

2. Social Media


Build the sense of urgency to reach the finish line in just a few days. Use images, your video, inspiring graphics, etc. to encourage people to contribute and make a difference. Include your Rally hashtag.

KEY TIPS

  • Use thank-you quotes, photos, or short videos.
     
  • Ask supporters and fans to Share the campaign to their networks to help you reach the Finish Line.

3. Bring in a hero


Key benefactors (or family members!) love to come in at the end of campaigns and help push it over the goal line. Line-up a special supporter who may be willing to kick-in a large amount in the final days of the campaign. Be prepared to give him/her a large shout-out on social media and in the follow-up email blast thank you.

 

4. Thank Boosters!


Don’t leave your Boosters in the dark for weeks after they’ve supported your Rally — interact with them and thank them, post messages on your Updates tab. This is not the end of your campaign, this is the beginning of a new relationship with a great group of Boosters who will be with you throughout your journey.
