10 Tips for successful crowdfunding!


  1. Be committed – Work your campaign!
  2. Be determined – 42% of funds are raised in the first 3 and last 3 days.
  3. Be personal – The best outreach is personalised – people are more likely to respond if they know you.
  4. Be active – When people see activity in your campaign, they’re more likely to give.

  6. Have a team – Don’t go it alone (call on family and friends to help).
