Asking for a donation is a beneficial merger of selling an item and giving it free. It’s another way to circulate your work and your name among potential lifelong customers. Provide a donation button or cart for the service(s).
Decide on the suggested donation amount, whether market or reduced. If contributors are especially grateful, they can usually opt in to donate more than what you suggest. I did this when I donated to a crafter for her marketing services.
Remember: receiving a donation for your product or service is a type of sale. Someone is paying you for it, even though it may be just a token payment. They may one day decide to review and buy more of your work.Sandi on Google+
