Should you collect donations online?

Yes! Collecting donations online is simple and allows you to take monetization to the next level. A few benefits of using a donation block on your social media profiles can help you raise more money for the causes you care about or your own nonprofit organization. 

There are many advantages of accepting donations online by using a website builder to create a custom donations page, including: 

  1. Makes donating easy: By allowing your followers to donate online, you make it easier for them to give money to their favorite causes with a few clicks of a button instead of writing and sending a check.
  2. Can improve relationships with donors: When you use social media to promote your cause, you can build personal relationships with donors to encourage them to give more or spread the word.
  3. Expands your reach: Social media allows you to expand your reach to get more donations for your cause. 
  4. Drives traffic: A donations block can help drive traffic to your webpage, allowing you to grow your small business on Instagram and other platforms while raising more money than ever before for your favorite causes. 

How much does it cost to accept donations on Instagram and TikTok with Beacons?

Beacons has two plans for content creators, and both allow you to accept donations online. The free Creator plan allows you to create a custom webpage to accept donations, while the Entrepreneur plan—which is $10/mo—offers even more great features and customization options like extra page layouts, custom domains, and team accounts. 

Accepting donations with Beacons is free! We take no fees or transaction fees when you raise money with our donations block. 

What are tips for collecting donations online?

Accepting donations online has never been easier with our user-friendly design. That said, here are a few simple tips to increase your visibility online, find more donors, and increase donations:

  1. Create compelling content: The online creator space is competitive. That’s why compelling content is crucial if you want to captivate your audience and keep them interested in what you have to say. 
  2. Educate your audience: Your need to sell your followers on why they should donate to your cause. Explaining what the nonprofit does and why it’s important—and how that ties into their interests—can help entice more donors to give. 
  3. Have a CTA: Using a call-to-action (CTA) at the end of your video or in your captions tells followers exactly what to do and where they need to go to donate. For example, adding “link in bio” to your captions instantly directs people to your Instagram link in bio.
