Do photos on a fundraising page make a difference?
The short answer is yes. Allow me to demonstrate:
That’s in the Sahara Desert. It’s also the ‘toughest footrace on earth’.
Lots of sand? Check.
Would I recognise Ben? Check.
Ironic t-shirt? Check.
10/10 there. Here’s another:
Amusing take on our cartoons? 10 bonus points.
Proficiency with Photoshop? Definitely.
Communicates the theme of the event? Check.
Are they smiley? Yup.
Here’s one more good ‘un:
Stephen and Duncan are cycling through Ireland.
Do they have bikes? Check.
Proper looking ‘tour de france style’ bikes? Oh yes.
Matching polo shirts, like they’re in a team? Indeed.
The point is easy. If you upload a really good photo that is easily recognisable, is relevant to your event and maybe a bit funny then it will definitely help your potential sponsors connect to you and what you’re doing.
What we don’t like seeing on pages so much are our stock cartoons. So if you’ve been putting it off, sort that photo out right now, and don’t forget that you can update it as often as you like, or even make a fancy animated one.
