Starting off your project

Want to get your project off to a great start? Utilize these 5 tools to create the perfect project!

  1. What's Your Story?

    Your story defines your campaign and differentiates it from all the other projects. Your projects story is defined in 3 ways: Your campaign description, your video, and the updates you provide to backers throughout the campaign. Learn more about these 3 pillars of success and how to apply them to your project on the What's Your Story? page.

  2. Reward Ideas

    A core value of crowdfunding is the mutual reciprocity between the campaign and your backers. Knowing simple things such as setting your rewards in sequential order, creating 7 reward options and identifying which reward amounts warrant the most traffic will help you maximize your rewards.

  3. Budget and Timeline

    Choosing a pragmatic goal is crucial to not just your campaign, but to you actually funding your studies. Most campaigns receive a high amount of donations in the first 3 days followed by a plateau and then a surge of donations at the end. Setting your timeline between 30-45 days will allow you to capitalize on this momentum while still maximizing your project's potential.

Projects with a video are up to 20% more likely to succeed than those without one. Read our step by step instructions on how to make a quick, simple and effective video here.

  5. Campaign Description
