View Full Version : Tips to make donations easier

A good idea was posted on DP and I quote from there

My sister said that she was listening to NPR and someone who was in charge of a charity started putting on at the end of their TV ads a 5 second suggestion to text in a donation by typing a key word, like this:
She said that the donations skyrocketed. This makes sense because of how easy it is. For most people, going to a computer and finding the website and filling out their info and credit card is too much work for them. But donating $10 by texting RP2012 to 50555 or what have you is quick and easy because it just gets charged to their cell phone bill.
Everyone has cell phones and the quick text makes it an easy impulse donation. It should be at the end of every one of his ads. How can I make sure someone at the campaign knows about this game-changer as well as someone at the SuperPac?

Another idea is to do the same that Obama is doing - use the credit card readers like Square

Hope this can bring in more funds by making it easier for people to donate to the Campaign.
