Author: Harry Pearce
Update your assets and connect with supporters anywhere and everywhere
1. Zoom backgrounds
Take your virtual events, webinars and meetings one step further. Incorporate a QR code into your virtual backgrounds to provide guests with an easy way to engage with you while on camera. Whether you want to drive donations, a patient story, or instant feedback, a QR code is a seamless way to drive instant gratification.
2. Social media
Include your QR code on social media for extra support from online donors. Instant links and eye-capturing QR codes on social media will help you reach for larger audiences, so impress them with the experience. You’ll gather in-depth data that social analytics can’t give you.
3. Interactive flyers
Raise additional funds with eye-catching interactive flyers and track data in ways you’ve not been able to do before. The engagement insights can be as granular as location or individual bucket. Readers will be able to act on their in-the-moment impulses, without having to open a computer. By eliminating friction, you’ll increase conversions and ROI.
4. Tappable merchandise
Transform your popular merchandise such as cuddly mascots, wristbands and T-shirts to add lifelong value to products you sell. Simply update labels with a QR code or embed an invisible NFC chip into your branding. Wherever your merchandise goes, an engagement opportunity will follow.
5. Virtual fundraising events
Whether it’s a concert, coffee morning or auction, your in-person events can still go ahead online. Bring entertainment directly to your donor’s homes and deliver links and QR codes to their screen. Use them for viewers to enter a raffle, quiz, or competition. They can even dress up virtually using a selfie experience.
6. Online virtual adoptions
Online initiatives that generate additional and long-term revenue streams, without the event planning, are virtual adoptions. Whether you have memorabilia or artefacts you’d like to promote and cherish, virtual adoptions are a great way to give back to your supporters and their families whilst generating long-term support.
7. Selfie filters
Encourage supporters to take a unique selfie using your very own branded template. With the opportunity to share selfies on social media, the experience is an effective way to raise money and increase brand awareness online.
8. Family fun collectable trails
Trails are a great way for families to get fit, have fun, and for the charity to raise funds. Create a digital scavenger hunt with options to educate, take selfies and collect donor support along the way. Each QR code scanned will be an extra stamp collected.
9. Donation stickers
QR stickers have the freedom to be placed anywhere. Venue posters, cards, cake stands, takeaway packages and thermo flasks are just a few places where stickers would gain attention.
10. Online Coffee Mornings
Engage donors with new activities, video calls and themed challenges. Printed QR calls and themed challenges. Printed QR codes can transform cake-aways, coffee flasks and posters into outdoor fundraising opportunities. Online, encourage fundraisers to share a warm cuppa and their donation code over video call.
