In Person or by Phone
Another way to get to your supporters, friends and relatives is in person or by phone. Maybe even host a fundraising party or bake sale. While this is of course the least leveraged, it is by far the most effective and is definitely not to be discounted. I know, this is the age of the Internet, but the personal touch still rules! If you can get on the phone or get in people’s faces (in the nicest of ways) and ask them to donate and refer everyone they know, you won’t believe the results. Of course you may have to still follow-up on some of them and nudge them a little, but it’s worth it, you’ll see!
