The most important part of any crowdfunding campaign is getting people interested enough to invest. Anyone can launch a campaign, but you need people’s attention in order to succeed. Use these crowdfunding tips in order to attract more investors.
Have a Clear Plan of Action
Don’t start a fundraising campaign on a vague idea. People want to know that you are serious. They want to know whether your project has any chance of success and whether or not you know what you are doing. Lay out a clear plan of action for potential investors to see.
Focus On Benefits
Let investors know what’s in it for them. Focus on how they will benefit from rewards or equity. Don’t make it all about yourself and your project.
Enhance your Social Media Presence
Create new social accounts (if needed) and engage “multipliers” where investors and the media can get information about your project. Include your plan, any endorsements, images that journalists can use, etc. This will make it easier to attract funds and publicity.
Create a Video
Having a video that will showcase and explain your project is extremely powerful. It’s also a great marketing tool and a chance to get your pitch out there. However, remember that a poorly created video is worse than no video at all. If you can’t afford a professional video, skip it (or ask us). If you can, do it and put it up on your webpage and link to it from your social profiles.
