With just 13 days to go until the election, ActBlue is doubling down, and your supporters can too.
Double Down (formerly known as Insta-match for those of you with us in 2012) allows you to create a pop-up asking donors to double their donation after their initial contribution is processed.
This is your chance to convey a sense of urgency to your donors and make the conversion, so make sure you use short, compelling content (pictures allowed, too!).
To turn on Double Down, go to the “edit” tab of a form that you have created and scroll down and click “Show ‘Double Your Donation’ Options.”
Check the box to enable the feature and write a powerful sentence or two on why donors should double their contribution to your campaign or organization.
For compliance purposes, doubled donations will show up as two separate line items with the same ID.
We’re always working to make sure ActBlue’s tools suit your needs through the election cycle, and we hope Double Down will help power your campaign to victory. Weekly recurring has always been a super successful feature, but at this point in the year, you need a new way for donors to show their support. Double Down, just like weekly recurring, will end after Election Day.
If you have ideas for other great October-specific tools or questions about setting up or using Double Down, drop us a line at info [at] actblue [dot] com. Happy fundraising!
