Adding videos to your campaign is an excellent way to communicate the story behind your cause and make an impact on people who visit your page. Videos bring your cause to life, evoking emotion and providing descriptions that images alone can’t capture. Having a video on your page can also give your campaign a more professional feel while adding a personal element – they’re especially well-suited for showing how donations to the organization will directly impact a personal life. Together, these qualities could increase the likelihood that visitors will donate to your campaign.

RallyUp provides three key places to add videos:

  • In the main image at the top of the fundraising page
  • In the campaign description
  • In the organization description

Please note that when you add a video here, it will show on all campaigns run by your organization. It’s therefore important to select a video that truly reflects your organization’s messaging and values, and will fit well with any current or future fundraising campaigns.
