After Your Campaign

How To Increase Player Engagement?

Fundraising to players is like paying taxes to parents – you’re forced to do it every year and it’s a burden. But it doesn’t have to be this way (at least with fundraising). You can get your players excited about fundraisers, which matters because fundraisers with proactive player participation are more profitable than those with little or no player engagement.
