Planning your project

The more you put into it, the more you'll get out

Crowdfunding has its challenges, but you've done the hard bit by coming up with your idea! 

Now you need to start planning your project and as the project owner, it’s up to you to make sure you have everything lined up and ready to go before launching. But don't worry, our team of crowdfunding experts are on hand to help with that. You can find lots of useful articles here

Momentum behind a new project should be starting to happen before it's even launched, so be prepared to invest maybe double the duration of your campaign in the planning stage. There's no denying that you will need to work hard to make it all happen.

Remember that research is key and find other projects that are crowdfunding for similar causes. You'll soon start to understand and notice things that they did right and that apply that to your own project. It’s important to research both successful and failed projects, so you can learn from those mistakes.

And make sure you download our planning guide further down this page, produced by our crowdfunding experts to give you the best possible chance of success. So... Are you ready?

From passion, commitment and dedication comes great Crowdfunder projects.
