New Email Design
FundRazr introduces a new email design to more effectively share your campaign with friends. Now your friends will get an email notification from FundRazr with details of your campaign such as description, goal, money raised. They also will have an ability to View, Share and Give to your campaign.
Q: Why should you promote your campaign by email?
A: Although social sharing is important, don’t overlook email, it is a powerful tool too. Email is a great way to directly reach out to your friends and people in your network. FundRazr makes it easy to explain your cause and need with this new email feature. It includes campaign details, a request for help and share options so your friends can donate and/or help spread the word. Email outreach is important to get a strong start to your campaign, to receive first donations and get the ball rolling!
To email, simply click on the email icon on your campaign page, enter your email address and then forward to your contacts. Email your FundRazr Now!
Custom Background Colors
Add a new theme color or image for your campaign’s background.
Q: Why should you spend some time to add a background theme color or image?
A: People respond to visuals. Images help your followers and supporters get emotionally engaged in your project or cause. Add a background picture to symbolize your project! Symbols provide a visual representation of your cause or project. They will help to remind people about your campaign.
Or you can add some custom theme colors to get more attention. While perceptions of color are somewhat subjective, certain colors can have an impact on performance, mood and emotions or at least make your campaign more attractive. Organizations can match logos or other styles.
Add a background theme color or image on the Theme & background tab on your Manage page, after clicking Edit just under the picture for your FundRazr campaign.
