Social Media

Social Media

Facebook is a great free tool that you should use when running a crowdfunding campaign. Facebook is great to post longer updates, as well as videos and images. It's a great idea to set up a page well before launch date and build your following on this.

  • Set up a page that is different to your personal one
  • Always make sure your content is relevant - posts about the weather should be kept on your personal page
  • Make sure people can like the page rather than having to be added as a friend
  • Invite people to like the page and spend time building the community
  • Post engaging content - your project video is a great way place to start
  • If just 10% of your Facebook friends share your project then 18,000 will know about your great idea!
  • Post regular updates on the lead up to launch date and keep doing this throughout your campaign to let people know about your progress
