Hello Bar for the Greater Good
Last year we created and shared a Hello Bar in support of the Japan Earthquake. Thousands of people added this Hello Bar to their websites and blogs. As a result, we saw over 200,000,000 impressions and raised an estimated $2 million. This proved to us that Hello Bar could be used as a way to spread awareness and inspire action for the greater good.
Since then, we have continued to create Hello Bars to support worthy causes. This month we are supporting breast cancer awareness with our digital version of the pink ribbon.
However, we are a little design company. We don’t have the reach or network to distribute Hello Bars for good causes on a consistent basis. So we figured we would develop something special for the organizations that do – nonprofits.
How it Works
We will be providing free and unlimited accounts to nonprofit organizations. The Hello Bar is a perfect way for nonprofits to empower their supporters to raise awareness and inspire action for their cause. It’s incredibly simple:
- Sign up with an official email address from a nonprofit and send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation into the program
- Create a Hello Bar to support your cause
- Publish the code on your website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, and encourage your supporters to add it to their websites
- Manage your Hello Bar across all supporter websites: Review your stats, update your message or even A/B test the Hello Bar for better results
Our Goal – 1 Billion Non-Profit Views Per Month
If our little web company can generate 200 million views in a month, think of what’s possible if you get involved. We are setting the goal at 1 billion views per month for nonprofits. At a 1% click-through rate, that’s 10,000,000 click-throughs to a good cause each month!
How to Get Started
You must be an official nonprofit organization to get access to unlimited Hello Bar usage. To get started, sign up for Hello Bar with an official email address from a nonprofit and send a message to email@example.com with a bit of info about your nonprofit organization.
Please note, we respect our users’ privacy and will never share their individual stats. We may share anonymous stats to report the overall impact from this program. We ask that you keep the Hello Bar logo and link visible. This may help offset our costs for the program, but will not affect your SEO ranking or pull any funny stuff – we promise.
