Contributors or visitors can share a tilt anytime by clicking the 'Tag Friends' button at the top right of the tilt page:
- Send individual emails. People who get a personalized message are 88% more likely to donate, so be specific and genuine. In other words, you may not want to mass email your entire contact list.
- Share on Facebook. Update your status with all the details and the tilt link and tag the friends you hope will contribute. Your contributors can share it this way as well.
- Create a Facebook event. These are great for parties—or any type of activity that benefits by having people hype it up beforehand.
- Tweet the deets. Over the course of your tilt, use Twitter to spread the word and share updates and encourage your contributors to tweet it out. Don’t be shy about it—our tilting experts suggest tweeting 4-5 times a week.
- Send out the link. You can find the link in the URL bar of your browser. If you create a tilt using the mobile app, you can text the link to contribute to anyone right from your phone.
- Call and Text. Reaching out via phone for follow-ups is useful for getting contributions from “big spenders” and stragglers that are slacking.
