Nice post on crowdfunding. The tips are very much like what sites like
I also want to share my experience with crowdfunding so far. My wife Liza
(who is also a Mozillian) and I started a personal crowdfunding campaign (
http://igg.me/at/pinkbasket/x/8937320) and so far we have raised 17% of our
goal one week after its launch.
Here are some of our insights and what works for us thus far:
- *Take part in Giving Tuesday* (start a campaign by December 2) -
Indiegogo's partners will give you extra tools to promote your campaign,
- *Make a list* - We literally made a list of people whom we think will
support us and we won't be shy about asking for help. I think this is key
because as you mentioned, no one wants to support a campaign with zero
backers and there is hesitation on being the first contributor
- *People are not viewing the campaign video *- Interestingly enough, we
created a simple video for our campaign but it is not getting played.
Indiegogo recommends having a video, but I guess having a clear &
well-written story is more important to us right now.
That's it so far. I'd be happy to share what we're learning as we go, just
email me off-list.
