This email flow is sent to a FUNDRAISER with zero donations on their page. The purpose of this flow is to encourage engagement from fundraisers who have created a page but have not yet actually impacted the campaign by collecting a donation.

Up to 6 emails are sent based on the number of days that pass before a fundraiser receives their first donation: 1, 2, 4, 7, 10, and 14 days after page creation.

WHY Use the Non-transacting Emails? 

It's important to activate and encourage fundraisers who have started a page, but not yet received a donation! Sending these fundraisers periodic reminder emails is a great way to encourage action.

There are a few styles you can take with these emails:

  1. Try to make the non-transacting fundraiser laugh! Really, people want to share things that make them laugh and they will be more likely to open your next email!

  2. Try connecting with emotional and personal content. Show the fundraisers the real impact they can have when they collect donations on their page.


WHO receives the email campaign? 

A fundraiser who has zero donations can receive emails in this flow. Once a fundraiser receives a donation, they will no longer receive these emails.

WHAT should be included in these emails?

  • Clear campaign branding elements (color, images, etc).

  • Use merge tags to personalize emails.

  • 📸  Include photos in your emails! (Fun GIFs are excellent for these emails).

  • A button with a link to the fundraisers page! (merge tag)

  • Ask these fundraisers to share and email their pages to family and friends.

  • Make sure fundraisers know the real impact they can have.

 1 DAY after page creation, zero donations:

Hey *|page:fundraiser_first_name|*!
It looks like you don't have any donations towards your goal yet! No worries : )

The best leaders lead by example. One of the best ways to get start is to BE YOUR FIRST DONOR. Try it! Donate $10 to your page and then share your page in social media post. Ask your friends to follow your lead and help you reach your goal. 

Being your first donor will show your friends how committed you are to reach your *|page:goal_amount|* goal and they'll be too inspired to even think about not donating.
