Which is Better: Text to Give or Social Giving Link?

We’ve discussed the topic of text-to-give plenty of times in the past. Text codes are difficult to remember, and donors can’t easily track what they gave and when. Text to give simply is not among the best mobile giving solutions. So, what is? Social giving links are rising in popularity as a better option for out-of-church giving.

What Is a Social Giving Link?

This link is an extension of your mobile giving app. It’s a URL or link that can be clicked on your Facebook profile, then opened in a web browser like Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. The social giving link is nearly identical to the mobile giving experience, donors simply click the link from your church Facebook page and give using their web browser.

How Does My Church Use This Link?

Because this link is a URL, it can be shared virtually anywhere. The URL can be posted on your social media pages, linked within your website, and shared via email.
