Want to have the most success possible with your new church giving app? Follow these instructions and you will see the results in no time.
Spread the Word
First things first: tell your parishioners about your new giving app. Having the new technology at your disposal means nothing if no one knows about it. During your next Sunday service, make a big announcement to launch mobile giving. Explain how the app works. Show a video demonstration to your members.
Have a special offering coming up? During a future service, you can broadcast a live feed of incoming donations to that cause using the Givelithon feature. When churchgoers see the special offerings rolling in, they will be more likely to step up and start giving along with their peers.
Customize Your Giving App Profile
The next thing you should do is make sure that your parishioners can easily locate your giving app profile. To do this, upload images to customize the look of your profile. When your members see your logo, church image, or your pastor’s name, they will know they are in the right place.
You can also set up custom fundraising campaigns or offering types. This allows churchgoers to select where they want their money to go. When they feel like they are directly contributing to a cause they care about, they will be more likely to give — and give more.
Start a Trend
If you really want your giving app to spread like wildfire throughout your congregation, encourage your donors to share posts about their generosity on social media. After making an offering through the app, they will have the option to share it on Facebook or Twitter.
When they make this a part of their routine, their followers will learn about your new giving option, too, and may join in on the giving — particularly if they also attend your church. When more people know about your new fast and easy giving method, your church giving will grow more than you ever expected.
