The Equity Crowdfunding Campaign Success Guide

Bitvore-ProfileThe power of equity crowdfunding goes far beyond the investment dollars you’ll receive on Crowdfunder. Raising investment has now been transformed into an opportunity to tell a larger and more powerful story about your company and brand, to build and showcase momentum, and to attract and engage a community to invest in and support your company.

If you make the mistake of approaching your campaign with a ‘transactional mindset’ that equity crowdfunding is just about the money, you’ll miss the opportunity to create something much bigger and better surrounding your company and it’s financing.

They key is to look at Crowdfunder as an integral part of your holistic fundraising Campaign. To help you with this, we’ve created a step by step guide to creating your Campaign and taking advantage of the platform tools we provide, our social network, and our existing base of active investors.

Getting Started

Next Step:

DocumentsOnce the required assets have been uploaded your Company Profile, it will automatically become discoverable. Providing additional assets, such as those highlighted in orange, will create a stronger Company Profile and tell your story in a more compelling way. Once your Company Profile is discoverable, the next steps are to setup your Deal and unlock investor access.

Relationships are at the center of investing. One of the most common reasons investors come in on a deal is because they know or respect other people involved with the company – whether those people are on the team, investors, advisors, or board members. We call the value of the people and relationships surrounding the company “Social Capital.”

Companies who understand the power and importance of Social Capital are the ones most often successful at raising investment and getting funding on our platform. Companies who don’t understand this, and don’t engage and leverage their Social Capital around their Crowdfunder campaign, are less likely to reach their goals.

Your Company Profile on Crowdfunder can quickly help you build and showcase your Social Capital. Follow these 3 steps for best results with your Campaign.

Step 1: Build Company Followers

Build a community of Followers of your Company as soon as your Company Profile is populated and live. As your existing community starts to Follow your company, others on the Crowdfunder network will see this and Follow as well.
