Considering a Crowdfunding Campaign?
Are You Considering a Crowdfunding Campaign?
Crowdfunding has become a very innovative tool that many in today’s society have chosen to avail themselves of for thousands of different reasons, although the three main areas are most commonly personal, charitable, and business.
If you are considering starting a crowd sourced funding campaign for personal reasons, as a philanthropic endeavor, or to help your business, there has never been a better time than now.
The downside of the recent popularity and the sheer multitude of crowdfunding platforms a person can choose from, is that it gives the false impression that this method of generating money is as simple as setting up a site, and then watching as the money rolls in. Although crowdfunding has been proven to be a great way to raise capital, it is not as easy as that.
What Types of Crowdfunding Systems are There?
Each crowdfunding system has their own unique platform, set of guidelines, fee structures and the like. Being propriety in nature – some are even tailored to very specific niches – certain industries, specialized projects, geographically targeted charities, etc.
Many platforms set out a program that will let fund seekers set a goal amount, but if that amount is not reached, no funds are ever actually paid out. There are platforms that are reward-based; when asking for donations, the receiver can outline rewards that the givers will get based on the size of the contribution. It seems every site has a different approach, some more gimmicky than others.
How Can You Improve on the Traditional Crowd Sourced Funding Concept?
I pride myself on being an accomplished lifelong entrepreneur who is also an expert in crowdfunding, having created the world’s first global online crowdfund system in 2002. With two decades of experience, I have been able to build onto the traditional crowd sourced funding concept by building cooperation into the campaign system. CoopCrowd is a unique proprietary system that makes crowdfunding a cooperative activity where all participants help one another to achieve their fund raising goals – everyone does a little to receive a lot.
As I always say “the best part is – you don’t need experience or a large following or a lot of time to be successful in cooperative crowdfunding”.
My extensive passion for helping people to live better, more financially secure lives is evident in everything that I do – from the basic, yet effective setup of my cooperative crowdfunding platform to the wise and altruistic advice that I offer to the public in both business and social venues.
CoopCrowd works because it allows everyone, everywhere to be able to raise money for virtually everything using some of the basic Universal Laws – give, share, receive. CoopCrowd enables givers to turn into receivers.
Is There a Better Time than Now?
Adding the cooperative concept to crowd sourced funding means that each donation is split and can fund over a dozen causes, and that a person is never alone in the work they put into their campaign.
If you are considering starting a crowd sourced funding campaign for personal reasons, as a philanthropic endeavor, or to help your business, there has never been a better time than now, and there has never been a better system than CoopCrowd.
