In the world of business, and in the mind of a woman, ideas are constantly flowing. We think up great ideas that will either be our newest business or will help our current business. However, we often find ourselves only entertaining these thoughts for a short time because the reality of them is not within reach. We don’t have the funds, the backing, or the support needed to make them happen. So what if you had an idea you really believed in. What if you had a game plan or product that you know people would be interested in. How do you turn this into a reality with skeptical investors? That’s what Kickstater, the funding platform for creative projects, aims to help with. Think this is the route you want to take your idea through? Here is how to make sure you make the most out of your Kickstarter project.
- Make sure you meet the guidelines. Kickstarter only has 3 requirements: that your project isn’t for charity, that it is creative, and that it’s for a specific work with clearly defined goals and expectations.
- Check the interest. Find out if people will be interested and willing to invest in your project. You don’t want to put something out there that isn’t interesting or doesn’t catch the attention of the people who will be backing you up.
- Dedication. Make sure you are fully invested in the project yourself. Have clearly outlined goals and objectives that you convey to investors. The more people believe that you will make this a reality, the more willing they will be to help you on that path.
- Aim high. Calculate the exact amount of money you will need to get your project off the ground. Don’t put less than that. You want to make this idea happen, and you need to be honest about how much you want to raise. Don’t over calculate or under calculate.
- Use social. Don’t underestimate the power of sharing. Make sure to share your project through all social means. Facebook, Twitter, and other channels can help you reach more investors as well as help get the word out about your project. Do not neglect this powerful tool.
