Crowdfunding Tips

As i’m about to launch a campaign with a colleague on @indiegogo I thought I’d share some  tips i’ve picked up, in going through this process.

imagesI’ve friends and fellow filmmakers whom have both failed and succeeded with crowdfunding for their projects.

  1. PLAN… Plan every step.  Have a calendar of what your doing each day of the campaign and add to it as you go along.
  2. ASSETS… Get them in place before you launch.  We rushed a launch of a campaign once, rushing the video, the perks and not planning in enough time for increasing our bids.  Get all your graphics titles etc done beforehand.
  3. GOAL… Set your goal at a realistic amount.  And always make sure its enough to cover all your costs of delivering on your perks.  Less in more….
  4. AUDIENCE… Reach out to your audience before you launch.  This can be through social media, email, word of mouth.  Its time consuming, so be prepared for the fight.  Its a marathon and not a sprint.

I’m happy to take any questions you may have and will do my best to answer them in the comments below.

Good Luck and happy crowdfunding!
