New Video Compatibility

FundRazr introduces Vimeo support for videos. Now you can add Vimeo videos (in addition to Youtube videos) to your campaigns and campaign updates to tell your story.

Q: Why should you use a video?

A: Although pictures are great storytellers, videos are often more impactful. In fact, campaigns with videos often raise over 100% more than campaigns that don’t. Video is a great way to engage your donors and connect with them emotionally. It allows you to showcase all aspects of your story in a compact, engaging way, so that your audience is more willing to share, donate, and help spread the word.

To add a video, simply click on edit campaign on your campaign page, paste the url of your video and then finish and share.Add a Video Now!

Campaign Analytics

FundRazr introduces Analytics for your campaign. The analytics page give you a basic report on your campaigns, including amount raised, daily contributions, and shares on social media outlets.

Q: Why should you review your analytics?

A: Analytics give you a good idea of how your campaign is doing. Through reviewing the sharing statistics, you can see where you are getting most of your shares, which gives indications on which platforms are successful and which needs more support.

To view your analytics, simply look for campaign analytics under the manage campaign page. Review your Analytics Now.
