Marketing your crowdfunding campaign and making the ask

The secret to raising money is ALL about how you make the ask! We get it, asking for money from your friends, family, or complete strangers can be awkward and uncomfortable. The best crowdfunders overcome this fear by treating their crowdfunding campaign like a sales process. In the first part of this workshop, you'll get expert marketing and social media advice for your crowdfunding campaign. Discuss how to get a community engaged around your campaign, how to contact influencers, and tactics that drive your backers to support your campaign. Then for the second part of this workshop, combine your pitching skills with your network mapping strategy to determine which message is right for every type of potential backer for your campaign. You'll learn how to confidently make the ask to your friends and family, get over those awkward feelings, and raise more money for your crowdfunding campaign.

Perfect your business pitch

When preparing for your crowdfunding campaign, the first and most important exercise is honing your pitch. As a Founder, it is your job to be able to articulate the mission of your company and the problem your product/service is solving, making sure whoever is listening fully understands why your business needs to exist. A perfect pitch is not only extremely valuable for your crowdfunding campaign,  but it’s also critical to getting your first customers, and eventually securing your next round of funding after your campaign. Join us for this interactive session with IFundWomen Startup Coach, Alex Brockelman, where you'll write and practice pitching your business live!
