So, what’s crowdfunding all about? Hints and Tips

• Before you start, think about who your likely funders are, and write your pitch with them in mind. Who are the people you know who have gone to every show you’ve done, or commented on every one of your facebook wall posts? These are the fans you’ll need to fund you if you are to succeed. • Put yourself in the pitch – Pitch videos featuring the creatives leading the project are much more likely to succeed, so get in front of the camera and tell everyone why they should back your project.
• Set an achievable target, remembering that you’ll only receive the funds raised if you hit your funding goal. As a guide, we think that £500-£1000 is a good start for a 30 day campaign, and raising more than £3,000 from small donations in this timeframe will take something a bit special.
• Make some killer rewards – the difference between crowdfunding and traditional fundraising is that every funder gets something back in return for their donation, so give them something they’ll remember! Make it kooky, fun and something they couldn’t get anywhere else – like money-can’t-buy keepsakes (props from the film), unique experiences (performances in the funders’ own home?), or special ways to say thank you
