100 by 30 Challenge

The 100 by 30 Challenge is simply a marketing plan that any organization can integrate within their existing plan to bring awareness about using Whalely.com to benefit their organization.

(This plan will also work well for similar online resources such as AmazonSmile.)

Subject:  Final Reminder!!!

Body:

We are ending our initial push to get people signed up and using Whalely.com as their internet search preference which inturn gives us more donations.

If you have already signed up, thank you!

If not, let me set your mind as ease with a couple of things:

  1. It is completely free for you and for us.  (They donate the ad revenue generated from the site.)
  2. It is the same internet.
  3. We don’t know what you are searching.  The only information we get is how many registered users have marked us, how many total searches by those users and how much money is being donated because of those searches.
  4. It works just like every other search engine and has “safe mode” enabled by default.

I hope this sets your mind at ease and you are ready to start supporting us on whalely.com.

Register at this link [insert shareable link] and be sure to set [insert organization name] as your default charity.

Thanks for the continued support.

 

Facebook Marketing Plan

The goal with your facebook posts is two fold, to get interaction and to get people to take action.  These will be “ask” type of posts so we suggest not promoting it more than once every 10 posts.  This plan is for a typical NP facebook page that has 2-3 posts per day.

Once this initial push is over, it is a good idea to continue promoting for your followers to designate your organization on Whalely.com about twice per month.
***NOTE*** When you insert your shareable link, it should populate your organization’s logo and link to set you as the supporting charity.
