It Is Time to Move On From Your Last Man Standing Spreadsheet

“It’s about time I sorted this.”

So you sit down, you open your spreadsheet and you type in the first name from the top of your list, suddenly the list seems to have grown, “Surely there’s an easier way!”

There is! provides an online platform for clubs to use that enables you to run a Last Man Standing competition with minimal fuss, oh and it’s FREE.

All you really have to do is create the competition and invite your players.

This means that all those hours usually spent filling in and updating spreadsheets, chasing the usual stragglers for that runaway tenner or sending endless reminders can now be spent promoting your fundraiser. (We help with that too!)

Klubfunder provide the facility for entrants to pay online as well as sending out reminders to entrants who are prone to picking exactly 1 minute before the deadline (usually the same pains who you are constantly chasing for the tenner!). 

Now, that’s how we make your life easier but it’s not all about you! 

By running your Last Man Standing online you open the competition up to an endless audience, simple registration means anyone who wants to join in just has to log on and sign up – more entrants = more money raised! All money is collected by your club so you keep it all. 

The downside is you don’t get to add an extra 100 friends on Facebook to keep them updated…we know deep down you loved that part of it all.

We also have our Rugby World Cup Score Predictor ready to go, why not check it out and get fundraising!

Using Social Media For Your Fundraiser

I don’t have to tell you that pretty much everybody you know is on social media nowadays, you probably know what half of them had for dinner last night. #JamieRamsey LOL

But just how do you make the most of your online presence when it comes to fundraising?

Pick Your Medium

If your club doesn’t have a Facebook and/or Twitter – GET THEM! There is most definitely still a place for approaching people or “Door knocking” especially in sports clubs. However, if your club is not actively promoting fundraisers online, you’re losing out. 

Tailor Your Content

Don’t fall into the trap of posting the exact same content across your social media accounts. They all have different offerings and should therefore be used in different ways.

For example, on Twitter your homepage is one long list of short messages (no longer than 140 characters to be exact, but hey who’s counting!) which are quite boring to look at.

So, if you want your tweet to be noticed you should design a poster for your fundraiser, that way your tweet will stand out from the crowd and the key information will be clear for everyone to see.

You can then use the text on your tweet to pester people (which I’m sure you’re very skilled at) for Retweets so your post will reach a bigger audience and generate a bit of buzz for your fundraiser.

Your Facebook posts can contain more text details but should be filled with photos and videos to encourage people to take notice of what you are doing and engage. 

Facebook is a great tool in encouraging interaction with people, try to engage the people you are targeting so they start to feel like they are part of something and their opinion is valid. You may get some great fundraising ideas from people.

If your club are hosting an event, take short and silly (people get bored easily) promo videos to get people’s attention – bloopers are great. Have a steady stream of content to keep the event on peoples mind.   

If you are planning on having a large amount of visual content it may be worth creating an Instagram account to share your pictures and videos, you can then post the better ones on Facebook and Twitter.

As it’s generally a volunteer giving their time to run the social media accounts for clubs it may be the smart move to focus their attention on Facebook and/or Twitter.

It will be more beneficial to you if one social media channel is being maximized, than if three are all over the place.

It is up to the person volunteering their time as to how much they can take on, while everyone can help with the content.
