Bike to the Beach has a new website and an entirely new fundraising dashboard for this cycling and fundraising season. Both are constantly being updated and upgraded to be the best tool for our rider to use to
In this release – updated fundraiser pages, user dashboards, incentive redemptions go live, refer a friend incentives, and new email templates.
Rider Incentives Are Live!
We’ve got a longer post about this on our blog, but we wanted you to know that you are now able to view your potential rider incentives, and redeem the points you earn for them. Get out there and start sending emails, post to social media, and recruit your friends to Bike to the Beach and earn points for awesome swag like our beach towels, water bottles, hats, and more. We want you rocking your B2B style while at the beach and in the city.
Recruit and Win
One of the best parts of Bike to the Beach is riding alongside your friends, family, and co-workers. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to recruit new riders, so we wrote out the email for you, and created a refer link that will give you credit for every rider you bring to Bike to the Beach.
Each email sent earns you 30 points, and each rider who signs up gets you 100 points. In no time you’ll be rocking one of our Bike to the Beach hoodies and other swag.
Updated Fundraiser Pages
We’ve updated your public facing fundraising pages to include testimonials from those we support, people who have previously done the ride, links to Bike to the Beach in the news, and more. This allows people going to your fundraising page to learn more about where their donations are going, and also gives them an opportunity to learn more about joining you for the ride itself.
New User Dashboard Features
In addition to a few buttons at the top for recruiting and incentives, which we’ll get to next, we’ve added a few more sections to your fundraising dashboard. We’ve included the stories from our partners, videos from our iCan Shine Bike Camps and our rides, and facts about where the money you raise goes. Use this information to your advantage, and post it along with your social media posts, emails, or add it to the text on your fundraising page. You may notice a theme; we want those who are donating to and riding Bike to the Beach to know just how much their contributions matter to the lives of those on the autism spectrum.
New Email Templates
Along with the recruiting email, we’ve added several more email templates for you to use in your fundraising and recruiting efforts. Simply click the spread the word button on your dashboard and choose from several of our pre-written emails. Add your own voice to it, and blast it out to everyone you know.
Get Out There
As you can tell, we’ve been doing this for 10 years now, and with this new website we’ve made it as easy as possible for you to register for the ride, fundraise, meet others to train, get others to join you, ride, and enjoy the Bike to the Beach experience. See you at the beach!
