Types of WeDidIt Pages
There are three types of WeDidIt pages: Donation page, Campaign pages & Peer-to-Peer pages. It’s important that you know how each of them works so that you can determine which type of page to use for your various fundraising efforts. All WeDidIt pages have integrated post-donation sharing through social media & email and all donations are facilitated by our payment processor, WePay (no relation!).
This is the general, 24/7 donation portal for your website. It’s designed to provide the best donation experience possible for your donors on every kind of device, so that whether they’re on your site on a laptop, desktop, phone or tablet, they’re easily able to complete their donation in three easy steps. The format & layout are based on studies of variations of checkout pages from millions of donors to determine the optimal donation experience for donation conversions - i.e. people who get to the page and end up completing their donation. Because of this, the layout can’t be changed but the content can. Through your WeDidIt dashboard, you can edit:
- Text and images along the left hand side (can’t embed a video).
- The four suggested donation amounts (but it has to be four - no more, no less).
- Optional: require donor’s address, make contribution in honor of
The Donation Page also plays a post-donation video. This can be anything you like, and most organizations choose to do a thank you video, even if it’s just a DIY video of the staff. Feel free to be creative! If you don’t have a video, you can choose an image instead.
To get the Donation Page on your site, all you need to do is link to it from your site’s ‘donate’ buttons. Anywhere it says Donate/Contribute/Support/etc. on your site, have those places redirect to your WeDidIt URL. It’s not mandatory through your subscription that you use it, but it’s proven to increase donation conversions by 15%, and mobile donation conversions by 35% so we always recommend it!
These are pages that you create for specific fundraising programs, projects and endeavors. Campaigns have a goal, a deadline, and they publicly show how many people have donated and how close you are to hitting your goal. They require a media component (either copy & paste a YouTube URL or build a slideshow in your WeDidIt account), give you the option of adding both rewards & suggested donation amounts, provide a campaign description full of text, images & gifs, and also link directly to all your social media for easy sharing.
You can have as many campaign pages live at the same time as you like and create & edit them yourself. Once a page goes live, you can change anything on the page except:
- Whether it’s an all-or-nothing or traditional campaign
- Any rewards that have already been selected by donors
Otherwise, you can change anything else - including the end date & time in case you need to extend your campaign. You can also edit the total amount of funds raised and people who who have donated. We call this ‘adding offline donations’ - a way for you to manually enter donations made to your campaign that didn’t come directly through the campaign page itself, such as checks, cash, or funds already raised before the campaign page was created
Peer-to-Peer (p2p or ‘Personal’) Page
These pages are created off of a regular campaign page. Campaign pages that have peer-to-peer fundraising enabled will include a button that says ‘Fundraise with us’. Clicking this button prompts you through selecting a photo of yourself, setting your personal fundraising goal & writing a paragraph about who you are and why you support the cause. When you publish a p2p page, it will include all the same information at the original main campaign page with your personal goal and information as a banner across the top. All the funds raised through p2p pages are automatically added to the original/main campaign page.
Mobile & In-Person Fundraising
All WeDidIt pages are designed for seamless mobile use. They’re optimized to look and work great on any type of mobile device. To use WeDidIt for in-person fundraising, all you need to do is open your fundraising page on a mobile browser on an internet-connected device. This makes it easy to raise funds at events like galas, dinners, or any event where you’d like to ask people to give. All donations are processed immediately and you retain all the same donor info you get when they donate on a computer.
