Do you have a really cool idea or a dream project - BUT just don't have the funds to make it happen?
Crowdfunding can be the solution to make it happen NOW.
People just like you have been raising hundreds of thousands of dollars on crowdfunding platforms around the world..
You may be asking yourself:
"How do people raise so much money?"
"How would I even start"
"How much time do I need to invest for an effective typical campaign take?"
You might have even tried it before and gave up being fed up with the process and options.
Whatever your reason, consider that crowdfunding can also do so much more than just raise the money to make your dream project come true.
Dive into the world of crowdfunding and master the latest tips and tricks on how to effectively prepare for, launch and manage your campaign.
Discover the secrets of crowdfunding success.
A lot of people…if you're read this far, you probably will soon, too!
Crowdfunders have typically included:
As well as… countless other every day people with great ideas for global and local markets, some stories are about personal passions and other about a smart, new business!
Let's take for example…Zubits….now this guy had a cool idea.
You know how shoe laces can get easily untied and be messy for kids and even for us adults?
Take for example, Zubits. The inventor had this bright idea to use, sporty looking, strong magnets to keep shoelaces securely connected. You can learn more by looking them up - but - suffice it to say that with a smart idea and a well executed crowdfunding campaign, this team far surpassed their fundraising goal by 1100% and found well over 7,000 backers on Kickstarter! The initial goal was roughly $30,000…he raised over $362,000! Imagine what you could do with your innovative idea!
Crowdfunding can also transform someone's destiny - like it did for amateur athlete, Maya. Her crowdfunding experience at sports crowdfunding platform Make-A-Champ for aspiring young athletes like Maya, has encouraged her to try out for the next PanAmerrican games. Or, the story of Cara - a girl who was bullied in school and had no direction…till she discovered her strengths in kickboxing. Crowdfunding has already helped her win three medals.
And you don't necessarily need to be targeting a global market place. Local focused ideas can be crowdfunded, too. Want to start a restaurant, café, juice bar, a vegan bakery or a hip brewery in your city? Ideas like these are a great fit for crowdfunding campaigns. You'd already be connecting with the customers you'd want to come to your venue. They’d already be fully hyped about your idea and its launch! Well known bistros like Colonie in Brookly once started off as a crowdfunding campaign. And to this day, it's been a huge success.
The stories are endless...you get the idea...and more importantly, you HAVE a winning idea, so let's move on to how you can get your idea to market. And now is a great time to do it.
Because the market's been expanding exponentially as THE most effective, time efficient way to launch an idea - even if you have no money!
Did you know that the crowdfunding market has grown from 2 to 5 billion dollars in the last few years. The momentum building, proven success stories have gained the confidence of investors... and now - more than ever- is the time to launch your campaign.
This can change your life!
