As the campaign is running, thanking, liking, favoriting, and retweeting your supporters' messages validates their contribution and serves as great social proof. People will start seeing messages pop up from many different people, lending increased credibility to your message.
Thunderclap Updates (Available on Lightning plan)
As a campaign organizer, you have the ability to create updates on your campaign's progress and share them with your supporters to keep them excited and engaged. If people opt-in to receive updates, they will receive a daily email digest containing your message. The update will also be visible on your project page.
The "Updates" tab is located next to the story section of a campaign page.
You can create and edit updates to your approved campaign in the "Project Update" tab under your "My Thunderclaps" admin page.
You have the option to include an image and embedded videos in your update.
A few ways to use Updates:
- Send a quick message about your campaign’s progress. Did you reach 75% of your fundraising goal or gather 100 signatures on your petition? Supporters love to see how they’re making a difference, even before the campaign has ended. Plus, highlighting your campaign’s traction will encourage more people to back it.
- Share some breaking news about your organization or cause that will help your supporters better understand and advocate for you. Empower them with information so that they can share it with their networks.
- Say thanks. Your supporters are excited about your cause, so take a moment to let them know you appreciate their help in spreading the word.
