LET'S START AT THE BEGINNING
SO, WHAT IS ONLINE CROWDFUNDING?
Crowdfunding is a method of fundraising for your venture by campaigning and receiving donations from a large number of people online. It is a streamlined process where you can describe your idea, share it directly to your networks and gather and receive support through donations, all in one place- your online crowdfunding post.
WHY DO I NEED TO CROWDFUND?
Crowdfunding allows you to directly take your idea and venture to the audience and online platforms you choose. This is not just a means to receive financial investments into your venture via donations, but a means to gather a community of support for your cause.
STAGES OF CROWDFUNDING
Planning, developing your target audience, generating the buzz and crafting your pitch are some of the major activities during the pre-launch period. This period, also known as the strategic phase, is the most important as it sets up your venture to receive interest, traffic and support as soon as it is launched.
This is the period where you actually start receiving funds for your venture online. There are three stages to raising funds - the opening stage, the stationary stage and the final stage. Here is when you will be communicating with your supporters on the crowdfunding portal.
This phase covers the stages just after you meet the target amount for your venture and before you start developing and implementing your venture. Here you keep your supporters up to date regarding the progress of your venture and keep them informed through its completion.
