One of the most frequent requests from fundraisers is that they’d like to add more photos and videos to fundraising pages. We know that adding some personalisation can be really important in getting people to make donations, so this release should make lots of people happy!
YouTube & flickr on pages
By logging into their account on Justgiving, fundraisers can now add videos and photos from two of the most popular sites on the web: flickr and YouTube.
What does that look like? Here’s an early adopter, a very quick on the draw, Laura Knight:
As Laura herself says on the page:
to some very cool updates to Justgiving you are also able to look at
the photos of my adventures on flickr AND watch the hilarious cow
touching video for Challenge Laura. Just click the pictures on the
left. That’s right…just there.
Another page that’s added YouTube at the first opportunity is www.justgiving.com/angelsofthenorthwest
Nice work guys!
Here’s our snazzy video guide to YouTube:
Fundraising Page Countdown
Another frequent request has been a page countdown, as many people are unsure of when their pages expire.
Now, once an event has taken place, a countdown will appear on the page to indicate how long people have left to donate:
We hope this will encourage people to donate towards the end of a fundraising page’s life, giving one last boost to a fundraising total before the page closes.
