I’ve had to crowdfund to raise money for cancer, minor back surgery and to kickstart a business.
I started helping other people in my online community and it made a big difference, working together. So that’s my biggest tip.
- Partner with someone you trust, who has the same level of visibility problem? & boost each other. It’s so much easier to promote someone else.
- Share your fundraiser more often - but to balance it out, share more helpful content on social too. Only a small portion of people see each social post.
- Send friends prewritten content to share. If you make it cut and paste easy, it’s hard for them to say no. Vary the text though.
I did three hours of these tips for my community,. Please share yours, even if you think it’s super obvious,
