Crowdfunding is for life, not just for Christmas!Gillian Black
Did you know that Crowdfunding isn’t just about the cash – it’s the gift that keeps giving. So your letter to Santa can include all of these amazing goodies:
Crowdfunding is a fantastic way to test your idea. A successful project proves
there is demand for what you’re doing, and gives you confidence in your idea
Running a project on Crowdfunder can raise your profile in a big way. Think of the
funding period as an intensive marketing exercise and an opportunity to try out
new ways of promoting yourselves, expanding your experience and expertise at
the same time
Crowdfunding is for life, not just for Christmas. The people who support you on
Crowdfunder become your customers, volunteers and members. Your supporters take
part in the journey, meaning they make incredible ambassadors for you in the future.
Having a successful crowdfunding campaign can help to unlock loans and investment or
can be a pre-curser to a much bigger equity crowdfunding or community shares campaign
in the future. It proves you know what you’re doing.
There is extra funding available from a range of partners on Crowdfunder – money
that goes towards your target, just like money from the Crowd. Projects in Angus
could be eligible for a pledge from Angus Council.
Crowdfund Angus is an innovative partnership between Angus Council and Crowdfunder UK, helping make community, business, sports and social enterprise ideas happen. Find out more about how Crowdfunding can benefit your business.
