These days, crowdfunding is becoming increasingly popular. On one hand, because innovative and fun ideas are often put forward and, on the other, because people increasingly want to start ‘something’. Do you have a business idea, but don’t have the start-up capital? Then make sure you read these 4 tips carefully so you can convince people of your plan.
1. Tell About Your Story Passionate
Make sure you tell your potential funders about your plans, product or business idea. Don’t engage in dialogue but try to engage in conversation if you can. Tell about yourself and all the practical aspects of your idea. Then make sure you bring forward the benefit for the funders. What’s in it for them?
2. Set a Funding Goal
There are different kinds of crowdfunding pages. You have the ones with a strict funding goal. If you exceed it you get to keep all the money, but if not, you don’t get anything. You also have platforms with a slightly different model. You get to keep the money you’ve funded, it doesn’t matter if you reach your goal or not. Which method you’re choosing is up to you. Make sure you set a funding goal. This way you also keep it transparent for the investor.
3. Promote Your Campaign
In the era we live in today, it is almost impossible to think of life without media. In the case of a crowdfunding campaign, this media is actually extra convenient. You can use this media to give your campaign some more following. You can, for example, spread the word via social media channels, but perhaps bloggers or influencers also benefit from the campaign and want to lend you a hand. The campaign will only work if you are one hundred percent committed to it. Think of it as a full-time job in which you want to achieve your goals.
4. Fulfill ‘Everything’ You Promise
When the moment is there and you reach your funding goals the campaign isn’t over yet. It’s over when you made sure everything you promised has been done. This means not only completing a project, but also delivering on your perks. Make sure you keep communicating with your supporters during the campaign.
We hope you can move forward with these four steps. Of course, it’s always good if you continue your research into different ways of crowdfunding. In any case, make sure you go for it 100 percent and believe in it.
