crowdrise, crowdfunding sitesThe number of crowdfunding sites seems to have significantly grown over the past few years. Furthermore, crowdfunding sites have gained exceptional attention in North America as a result of the US Jumpstart Our Business tart-ups (JOBS) Act in support of entrepreneurship and small business growth. The USA JOBS Act is designed to encourage small business and startup funding by easing federal regulations and allowing individuals to become investors. Crowdfunding has also become popular in the UK, Canada and Australia.

So What is Crowdfunding?

The concept of crowdfunding is not new [as shown by the infograph below], however recently, it has gained exceptional momentum due to the social aspects of raising funds. Instead of traditional investors, ideas or causes are funded by the general public. Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a cause, idea, project, business or venture by raising money from a large number of people . Today, these funds are typically raised via the Internet on crowdfunding sites. Crowdfunding has become a major catalyst in shifting the way small businesses source capital.

Crowdfunding profile and Campaign

Today there are a number of crowdfunding sites where you can submit your “pitch” in order to raise funds or donations. This is achieved by creating a profile on a crowdfunding site. The profile describes your idea, project or cause. Needless-to-say, the description must have good engaging content. When implementing a crowdfunding campaign, it is recommended that you:

  1. Do your homework with lots of upfront planning
  2. Ready your supporters by letting them know your intent.
  3. Create your pitch with engaging content; also think about a 2mins video to support your pitch
  4. Leverage your entire network across the social and email distribution channels.
  5. Keep your audience engaged with updates and achievements in relation to your goal(s)
  6. Deliver on your promise
