How to Get Crowdfunding Donations

Tips to help you plan and run a successful campaign.

Crowdfunding is an amazing way to finance your dream. You can use it get funding for a nonprofit, a startup venture, or even a creative project.

However, I’ve spoken with many hopeful crowdfunders who end up launching a campaign… only to hear crickets.

No one’s taking action. No one’s donating to their campaign.

It’s really, really frustrating. It’s also disheartening.

I want to change all of that for you. With my podcast, Crowdfunding Demystified, I’ve spoken with six and seven figure crowdfunding successes.

One of the biggest questions I have had from people so far is "What is a Kickstarter?" and "Are we just donating you money?". I guess I was ignorant before this process that many people DON'T know what a Kickstarter is, so really getting your pitch down to target friends and family I feel is important, as the hope is to get a small initial surge from them.

I do believe making your product have a tie to a good cause is also important. People want to feel they are helping other people as well as the project owner itself. Killing two birds with one stone! From my initial advertisement, I have found this to be true, as my sock company, The State Mate, sells state flag socks and donates a pair directly to a homeless shelter in the state of purchase. I know I need to have more than just a few tricks to make my $5000 goal though!
