6 surprising and easy secrets to improve your online fundraising

Is the most important element of your fundraising website concealed?

It might be, if you’re not following these principle from The Daily Egg at 6 Characteristics of High-Converting CTA Buttons:

  1. They are buttons. Not clever metaphors. Buttons.
  2. They have compelling copy. They have verbs on them.
  3. They have logical placement. They are placed where they’ll be seen — which mainly means they’re not tucked up in the upper right corner of a page.
  4. They use a contrasting color. Not blend-in brand-compliant colors.
  5. They have close proximity to the previous action.
  6. They aren’t forced to compete with unrelated actions.

When I audit nonprofit websites, I frequently find that low-performing ones are “hiding” their calls to action buttons.

It’s an easy fix that will improve your online revenue.
