This week's Quick Tip is about helping your peer-to-peer and community fundraisers raise more. These are the volunteers out there taking part in events or organising their own to raise money for your charity. How we treat them makes all the difference, and in less than 10 minutes Simon helps you do that.
This week's Quick Tip is all about how to grow your mailing list. In less than 10 minutes Simon gives you a bunch of ways to capture more email addresses, postal addresses and phone numbers of people who are interested in the work you do.
"Everyone is a channel!"

A good fundraising ask is structured as The Problem, The Solution and The Ask. But how do you frame your problem and solution most effectively to engage the potential donor?
In this week's Quick Tip Simon talks through The Problem and The Solution of your cause and the elements that work.
Simon talks to Ryann Miller (twitter.com/Ryann) about Digital Maturity and how to balance all these shiny new objects. They chat about data, analytics and measuring success, whether that's on Email, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram...or even Second Life (or Third Life!)
Another special LIVE recording of the podcast where anyone can dial in or comment! Join Simon as he delves in to some of your Unpopular Fundraising Opinions.
This episode's unpopular opinions are:
- "The job titles we use within fundraising are for the benefit of internal processes & are a hindrance for external dealings and creativity for acting beyond your role"
- "That all donors are NOT equal, despite how democratic we might like to be."
- "Using chuggers damages the charity's brand."
