So go fund me used to be able to have platforms where I can pay for them to go post it all over. I can't find anything like that. I posted my friends Instagram and Twitter but that's all I know. For some reason my misunderstanding was that this page would help get me to some other pages. And I posted it in groups on my Facebook.

Hi @Bonnie Loving welcome, and sorry if there was any confusion. GoFundMe doesn’t have services where you could pay for social media reach.

Offers related to your GoFundMe fundraiser:

If someone you don’t know is offering something that sounds too good to be true, proceed with caution. Some examples include offers to:

  • Run your fundraiser (especially for payment)
  • Withdraw a fundraiser's donations on your behalf 
  • Guarantee reaching your fundraiser goal in exchange for a service fee
  • Offer a large donation to your fundraiser if you pay a transfer fee
  • Offering to share your fundraiser with a large social following for a service fee

 

As far as getting the word out about your fundraiser– posting on Instagram and Facebook are good ideas, and a lot of people have good results with reaching out directly to family or old friends via direct message or text.
