When you are thinking about starting a
new fundraising campaign, you need to step back and take stock of how
things have changed since you first fund-raised. It’s time to shake up perspectives. So in this post, we’ll give you questions that will help you think about your social business in a fresh way and revisit what you do, why you are
doing it, and how you are doing it.

2 REVIEW THE UNDERLYING CAUSE
3 REDEFINE THE USER(s)
Your users may have changed, trends and habits may have changed. Look at the people you are targeting and how they have evolved, and be clear about their persona. It may be helpful to, stretch your thinking, think about victims, perpetrators, primary service users, secondary service users, close relatives and so on.
