Why you Should Use our Mobile Look-up Tool

With InstaGiv, it is not just text donations and that’s it; we have so much more to offer our clients including Mobile Lookup.

We have a mobile fundraising and engagement platform with various tools and feature to help improve your SMS donation journey and aid the success of your campaigns.

One of our popular tools is Mobile Lookup. Our platform records the full history trail of each mobile number who engages or donates to your campaigns with InstaGiv. Mobile Lookup has proved to be very beneficial when you have incoming calls or queries from your donors.

People may ask if their donation has went through successfully, if you can tell them the date of their last regular gift, if their supporter text has been received and so on.

Rather than you sift through hundreds of texts on your inbound report, you can easily ask the individual for their mobile number and type it into the Mobile Lookup tool. All of their interactions will be displayed in a table form with details including, dates, times, donation amounts, inbound texts, outbound texts and much more. This report is fully downloadable and is a great tool to have a hand as well as its effectiveness.

Below is an example of Mobile Lookup:

Are your Supporters Fundraising on your Behalf?

Event Fundraising

Would you like to create a team of supporters to help generate more fundraising for your charitable cause? With event fundraising, you can create an army of supporters working together on your behalf.

Each supporter is given a unique code attach to a keyword, such as GIVE_H7Y5, which acts as a tracking device. This will capture their fundraising journey directly on the platform.  In real time, you can see exactly who is raising, which funds and when.

Why?

While issuing your supporters with sponsor forms and collection buckets is a great traditional way of collecting donations, why not step out of your comfort zone and become more mobile with Instagiv’s Event Fundraising tool?

The unique fundraiser code being H7Y5 will allow you to see how well each of your supporters are performing in gathering donations on your behalf. We also can provide a ‘Totalise Page’ that allows your supporters to visit the URL at any time, enter the keyword plus their unique code and view how much they have raised thus far. It is a fantastic way to keep your supporters motivated and show them exactly how well they are doing. By letting them see on-screen exactly how much they have fundraised so far, they will feel encouraged to keep on going and smash their targets.

How?

It’s a simple but extremely effective way to fundraise in 2018, so why not see how beneficial it will be for your summer fundraising campaigns? It is that easy! Sign up for a live demo with our experienced Customer Services Manager, Caitriona, and she will show you exactly how to benefit from this brilliant feature.
