Asking supporters for money can often be difficult and awkward, but you'd be surprised how generous your community will be if you bring them along on your journey. Follow these tips to help your t-shirt campaign see even more success!
Tell the story behind the shirt. Why are you raising money? Write a description for the shirt, right on the sale page, as well as post it to social media, or even create a dedicated Facebook page or group as your hub for communication.
Be the first to buy. If you don't stand behind your design or cause, can you expect others to do the same?
Don't just share it once. Keep your community (online, email, etc.) informed as your fundraising progresses. Take them along on your journey.
Thank your buyers. Be it in person, through a social media post or in an email. Recognize their generosity.
Show off the shirt once you receive it and encourage your buyers to do the same through sharing photos of themselves wearing the t-shirt on social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. This will help create even more visibility and awareness for your cause.
