A recent social media marketing study found that 82% of viewers prefer live video to social media posts, and 80% prefer live video to reading a blog. If you want to get your audience’s attention online, live streaming social video is a great way to stay ahead of the competition.

Live video can be used throughout every stage of a fundraising campaign – to tease the campaign and increase anticipation, to launch the campaign with a bang, to thank donors throughout, and to keep the momentum after the campaign has officially ended.
