Crowdfunding for Philanthropy: Social Media Disappoints....Again

Isn't this a gorgeous photo? I took it myself when I accompanied a client down south for their President's Club. It's the type of image that tropical dreams are made of.聽Unfortunately, although it is beautiful, the story it tells is not a happy...

Update: There is no improvement. Clearly, social media is no longer the appropriate platform for crowdfunding campaigns. As Brian suggested, video is better but to do a really good quality video takes $$. This should be sent out via email to family, friends, and colleagues and there should be a follow-up phone calls. I am surprised that since the Internet has been around for so long the majority of people who have contributed were uncomfortable paying on line. I would nix the crowdfunding site and give people the option to send payment via email transfer or money orders via priority snail mail. I am stunned that this is what we have come to, old school campaigns in this day and age.

Well, I am not into the bikinis but you have a point. There are so many of these campaigns that a very creative approach is needed to stand out and video is much more powerful than photos. This came up so suddenly just before Christmas and I thought a crowdfunding campaign was the way to go. I had no idea that there were so many of these as I have not had any requests. The take-away from this experience for marketing in general is that one has to pull put all of the creative stops and stand out from the crowd. I will keep this in mind next time.
