Online crowd funding is really just a donate button backed up by some social media and web site to get people to press it. Isn’t that already happening?
I guess the purpose built crowd funding web sites are frequented by entrepreneurial types who presumably will not be keen to dob their cash to CW. It’s not hard to do but probably of little value.
Time may be better spent coordinating what you have and finding new places to get the messgae out online. Work out where likely donators are online and go to them. Join their discussions and after a while drop in links to pages that will lead to them pressing the donate button.
Put up a specific donate page which explains why someone should donate. One page just for this. Assume this is the only thing anyone reading it will know about CW. Keep the message short. Include one picture. Make the page immediate, appealing, funny, simple, honest and ask people to dig into their pockets.
Then ask readers here to drop a link to the donate page into any places they discuss online. Comments, forums, social media etc, etc
Then ask readers here to go find a new place where potential supporters may gather online. Maybe footy sites, newspapers, UKIP forums, etc etc. Join the discussions (contribute positively) and after a while drop in a link to the donate page.
You then have yourself the beginnings of a proper online crowd fund raising campaign. How does that sound?
sounds great Janet – would you like to do it?
I’ll have a read and see how this is really done. If anyone already knows about this stuff then chip in.
I’ll get back to you in a few days.
Crowd funding via a site like Kickstarter could be useful for attracting funds from people who would like to support a particular project rather than the whole campaign
Ashe, yes I’ve been reading a bit about how this works and there may be something to what you say. What would be a project though.
Ian I’m off up north for my holiday. I’ll get back on this when I return.
