Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is helping people make their difference in the world!
The excitement and success of my first crowdfunding campaign in 2014, lead me to become a serial crowdfunder. To date I have used this powerful mechanism of winning support to raise over £100,000 for charities and social enterprises. My next crowdfunding challenge is to run a crowdfunding campaign in India, click here to read about it.
Here are the rewards based crowdfunding campaigns I have led. It is impossible to crowdfund alone, I worked hard on these campaigns with incredible and dedicated people and I thank them and the amazing crowds these campaigns created. #togetheranythingispossible

If you want to run a crowdfunding campaign I can help you by coaching you through the whole process. How we work contract the crowdfunding coaching will depend on which crowdfunding platform you choose to run your campaign on. I  am an associate coach for crowdfunder.co.uk  This means I can offer my coaching services to anyone running a crowdfunding campaign on this platform for free! However, if you are choosing another platform, I can offer you the same service at a costs that is relative to the target you are aiming to raise.

I can help you reach the target that you’ve set and support you along the way. I aid the crowdfunding process in a number of ways including the following:
  1. Initial consultation over skype for about 20 minutes about your campaign idea, timeline, target etc
  2. Email with basic template to help start the planning of your successful campaign including backer mapping, key messaging, rewards, target considerations, initial thoughts on how to convert audiences to backers & initial marketing and PR ideas. *
  3. Skype session to discuss information submitted in the basic planning template and work out what else needs to be done to strength the campaigns planning.
  4. Pre-live review. Receive feedback of your draft pitch over email/skype
  5. Promise to be one of your first backers and pledge towards the campaign 
  6. Offer weekly meetings for 20 minutes over skype to checking on the stats and that funding is going as expected and if not then give suggestions of how to pull things around. 
*for more complicated campaigns, more extensive templates will be given for each area of converting audiences to backers and marketing planning for campaign
