The Benefit of Mobile Fundraising Technology

A mobile fundraising platform is a paperless system that allows you to manage fundraising efforts before, during and after a live event, auction and online pledge campaign. There are numerous advantages to incorporating mobile fundraising into your next charity event. Here are just a few:

Fewer Errors

When using the GalaBid platform, your fundraising efforts not only become a whole lot easier to administer, but guarantee accuracy throughout the entire process. The traditional paper system required volunteers and staff members to enter data into a spreadsheet. This was not only time-consuming but also lead to errors.

From managing guest registration and ticketing, to the running of live, silent and online auctions, collecting donations and selling of raffle tickets, an online electronic platform ensures a more enjoyable experience for both your guests and your own event staff.

More bidding

GalaBid's fundraising software will give you the opportunity to launch your auction pre-event. This means higher engagement from an early point and better results. As stated by School of Life, "We raised 50% of our silent auction revenue before the night started”. It also allows any supporter to participate - even if they are unable to attend the live event. Utilising e-mail marketing and social media will extend your reach and allow for maximum exposure.

Increasing Convenience

The convenience of mobile bidding is undeniable. When supporters are required to make bids at the auction tables, they are less likely to participate. Mobile bidding not only allows you to notify supporters by way of a text message when they've been outbid, but bidders are then able to continue to make new bids without having to leave the comfort of their own seat. And we know that more bids = more fundraising revenue.

Furthermore, a secure registration process means that supporters can register easily and effortlessly before an event via a text message or web browser.  This will reduce lines on the night and cut down on the amount of volunteers required to run an event.

A Time Saver

Going electronic will decrease the amount of time spent on those mundane and repetitive tasks, meaning your team will be able to focus on the important stuff. Our mobile friendly software platform for example, will allow you to automatically invoice supporters providing a link for them to click so as they can make payment directly from their mobile phone.
