Blogging is a great way to help you keep in touch with your donors. Stories are king and telling a great story will get others to support you more.
4 steps on how to start a blog:
- Choose your preferred blog platform. If you can take good photos then exposure.co or medium.com are amazing for telling good stories visually. Otherwise, look at tumblr.com which is half-social network, half-blog.
- Tell great stories. For a great article about telling great stories from the Harvard Business Review: CLICK HERE
- Share your posts on social media. Let everyone know what you are going through, thinking about and planning for your race. Your donors want to know you are going to finish. Remember, they are supporting your cause – but they are supporting you first and foremost.
