How to Run a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign: Go Outside!

You like fresh air? A frisbee? A dog? The blue sky? Perhaps a kite? Green growing grass? If so, you’re in luck: your startup business should do just fine if you run a crowdfunding campaign the right way.

Let’s hope you don’t have allergies.

Outside Promotion Is Key When It Comes to a Crowdfunding Campaign

That means you have to be okay with going out there¬†where all the potential backers, customers and investors are located. This is why Kickstarter isn’t simply a do-it-for-you website, and for sure all sorts of commercial real estate developments would understand that it’s all about collaboration. You literally can’t do it alone. You can’t expect a website like Kickstarter to do it alone as well.

It, therefore, stands to reason that your strategy means the most when it comes to a crowdfunding campaign. Kickstarter, for example, will give you the tools; you use them. And you use them liberally.

What Do You Do With Your Crowdfunding Campaign Effectively?

Share your links. Talk about it extensively on blogs, on the radio, on TV if you can. Advertise. Spread the word beyond that of the actual website.

What then happens is oftentimes you’ll see the backers bleed through the cyberspace walls, offering their donations and getting you closer and closer to your goal. You implement social media to your advantage:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Medium
  • WordPress
  • Blogger
  • Redditt
  • Pinterest
  • YouTube
Go in with guns blazing. Share, share, share. Get feeds set up automatically, and keep posting until your fingertips bleed. Chances are you’ll see the results, and here’s the best part: Kickstarter just might reward you for it.

Think of It as Being in a Bar With a Friend and Talking About the Latest Cool Thing in the Store

When you think of it that way, it shouldn’t be too hard. You just have to do that X amount of times, with X amount of people, for X amount of days. Painstaking and lengthy, yes? Rewarding? Definitely.
