We get the vision you have for changing the world, and we have spent years testing and evaluating the strategies that are the hallmarks of successful cause-based crowdfunding.
Did you know that 75% of Crowdfunding Campaigns fail? Many brilliant people with amazing projects make avoidable mistakes when it comes to crowdfunding, simply because they don’t know any better. This is exactly why you want the best in the biz in your corner, coaching you on the proven strategies, hard work, focus and courage that accompany successful crowdfunding campaigns.
YOU WILL LEARN:
1) How to Apply StartSomeGood’s “5 Cs of Crowdfunding” to Your Project: In order to succeed, your campaign must have: Clarity, Credibility, Community, Channels and, you’re going to personally need a whole lot of Courage! Know which of the 5 Cs are your strong points (and how to leverage them) and which are your growth points, so you can bring more focus, support and resources to these areas to create a campaign that excites and mobilizes the highest number of donors.
2) Storytelling: Craft a clear, compelling message that resonates with the values, needs and desires of your prospective donors and most importantly- motivates them to pledge! Storytelling is the heart of cause-based crowdfunding; learn how to do it well and it will benefit you for years to come.
3) How to Avoid the Biggest Crowdfunding Mistakes. 75% of campaigns fail because people think there is an anonymous crowd waiting to donate – FALSE! Use our “Tribes” & “Personas” exercises to understand how you can leverage your storytelling to engage your community and connect with different stakeholder groups.
4) What Motivators Donors + The Power of Rewards: Understand the importance of rewards, as they relate to the 4 Key Donor Motivations. Work with your Crowdfunding Coach to create irresistible rewards that excite your donors and relate specifically to your project.
5) How Much Can You Raise: Use our goal setting formula to calculate a realistic and ambitious fundraising target for your campaign. Learn why an “all or nothing” tipping point enables you to raise 4 x more than “keep what you raise”.
6) Outreach Strategy: You’re not only crowdfunding to raise money, you’re doing it to mobilize a community of supporters who want to be a part of the change you are creating in the world. When the time comes to tell the people about your amazing project, you don't want to launch to the sound of crickets, right? You’re going to need a targeted marketing and outreach strategy that builds momentum and excitement for your campaign- even before you launch.
