I’ll say this- sometimes you have to create your own news. I’ve done things where I offer a special bonus perk for a single day for all new supporters that was specific to the show. Something small and dumb- in my case it was a personalized apocalypse-themed compliment for every new donor, no matter how small the amount. I’ve also given out unique GIFs from the show/pitch video (you can make them on GIPHY if you aren’t a GIF-er) for new donors, or made quick personalized thank you videos on my phone. Something super small branded as a “FOR TODAY ONLY!” bonus perk.
You can also pretend you have a matching donor (it’s really just you) so that for every donation that day up to a certain amount, this anonymous matching donor will match it. Thus every $5 donated becomes $10, etc. You’ll have to put your own money down for that, but you’ll get it back at the end of the campaign and sometimes you need to inject your own investment to make it seem like it’s back to life.
I will also say that the mid campaign slump is a real, and super scary thing, but most of your donations, statistically, will come in the first few days and the last few days. So don’t panic quite yet.
