Customizing your Campaign Link

By default, Campaign links will be a random series of letters and numbers, but changing this is easy! We strongly recommend customizing the URL of all your Givebutter Campaigns for two key reasons:

  1. Potential Donors will feel more comfortable clicking on a link and donating when it looks more familiar/recognizable to them.

  2. Having a legible URL has been proven to improve rankings in search engines, meaning your link is more likely to appear higher in Google searches.

How do I edit my Campaign URL?

Campaign URLs are customized in the Sharing section of the Campaign Manager

  • First, navigate to your Givebutter Dashboard.

  • Select your Campaign from the recent Campaign list on the left panel, under Raise.

    • If you don't see it there, you can click ALL CAMPAIGNS to get the full list.

  • Click on the SHARING tab and find then navigate to the first section, General.

  • Under Custom Campaign Link, remove the current slug and type your desired slug.

  • Click SAVE!

⛔️ Warning: Changing a URL will break any previous links, including Team Member invite links. If you have already shared or posted a link to your campaign, please make sure to update the posts with the new links.

What is a slug?

The slug is the last part of a URL/Link. The slug refers to a specific page, while the domain refers to the website itself. In the below example, givebutter.com is the domain, and collect is the slug.

givebutter.com / collect

Currently, we only allow the editing of URL slugs, and you cannot customize the URL's domain. However, you are always welcome to add a campaign to your own website! If you're interested in custom domains or subdomains, feel free to upvote that feature on our community board!
