Post and edit an update
You can add an update by going to your campaign page and clicking Manage.
When to add an update
Most successful campaigns follow this schedule:
- Initial Update: Three days after you launch your campaign, send a thank you to your supporters and ask that they continue to spread the word.
- Campaign Progress: Once a week after your first update, give a status report of your campaign's progress and include links to newsworthy articles.
- Deadline Approaching: If you're campaign has a deadline, send an update 3 days before and everyday after, asking your supporters to continue spreading the word.
- Wrap-up: Once your campaign has ended, thank everyone who supported your campaign and let them know what everyone accomplished together. You should always describe in detail the impact your campaign had. If your campaign was a success, post an update as a win.
