Over the years we’ve seen great success with prize draws on our platform so we’ve decided to give the people what they want! Through our new feature, running a prize draw on Crowdfunder is simple, easy, and exciting.
With new features launching and staff joining, it’s an exciting time of growth at Crowdfunder. Over the last few months we’ve been working behind the scenes to launch something exciting to help our crowd raise funds in a new and innovative way.
So, if you’re looking to raise money for a cause and have something amazing to offer in return then our brand new prize draw feature is for you. A prize draw is super simple to set up and is easy to use from both a draw-runner and entrant point of view.
Better yet, they’re enticing to your crowd. The prospect of winning something in return for a pledge is exciting and can really create that much-needed noise around what you’re doing.
So how do they work?
First you’ll need a prize or selection of prizes. Make them as unique, special and exclusive as possible as this will attract more supporters to your page. Then set up your page, explaining what the prize is and why you’re running the draw, then you can go live.
Share your draw far and wide, drumming up interest for your prize, creating noise, and telling your story.
Then you pick a winner, notify them, and dispatch your prize to the lucky entrant.
We told you it was simple!
Our Head of Projects, Simon Walker, explained, “It’s our delight to add dedicated prize draw functionality to our range of fundraising mechanics. The last 18 months have been tough across the board and after listening to our customer requests and looking at what was available on the market we decided that we could build something brilliant that costs virtually nothing for our patrons to use. For those looking to onboard new supporters, relieve donor fatigue, find new ways to make headlines and take home almost everything raised, Crowdfunder’s prize draws represent a fun, quick, accessible and inclusive way of doing all the above.”
