10. Do something annoying
It's odd, but almost anything that's on your personal list of pet peeves has a good chance of being good for fundraising — such as:
- Sentence fragments. Good, readable writing.
- Corny, old-fashioned design. Almost always more effective than the edgy, modern style designers prefer.
- Knickknacks. Don't sneer. Done right, premiums and freemiums work fundraising magic.
- Emotionalism. It might get under your skin, but being emotional is the heart and soul of successful fundraising. FS
