Promote crowdfunding project – If you are running your own crowdfunding campaign then you know just how important, and challenging, it is to find audience, promote your product and drive action. In order to draw attention to your project you will need to get users to actively share, discuss and socially engage with your campaign. The following are ways through which you can promote your crowdfunding campaign;

  1. Promote crowdfunding project within Easypay – Easypay comes with a “promote” feature that allows you to pay for unique clicks on your advertised project. A promoted project gets more visibility and real estate within the Easypay network. You can read more on how to promote crowdfunding project below.
  2. Through your website By far the best website to promote your crowdfunding project is your own. It is extremely easy to put together a simple website with a home page and a blog. You can post a lot of content about your project, post to your blog once a week for a couple of months and then you will start seeing people come to your site to donate.
  3. Social media platforms
    Social media is the place to promote your project or to promote just about anything. After creating a project, share your project link to Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram, Google plus etc. This will get you the traffic that you need for your crowdfunding. People who click your shared link will be taken to your payment page where they can donate.
  4. Offline ways Some of your best crowdfunding campaign promotion will happen offline. It’s the face to face interactions that will give the people confidence and trust in your cause to fully support it online for instance a pre-launch party, it doesn’t have to be an expensive event, tell people about your cause and how it matters to the community.
  5. Use local news to support your crowdfunding project One of the most powerful places to find offline support for your crowdfunding project is your local news and public access shows. These are obviously going to be much easier to get on than larger national shows but can be the stepping stone to taking your campaign viral.
  6. Finally, you need to promote your crowdfunding campaign out to as many places as possible to reach as many people as possible.
