Community

wemakeit is the right place to strengthen your network and to convince our community to root for you – we keep our 150,000 newsletter subscribers in the loop about exciting projects and they soon will be among your fans, too.

Partnerships

Benefit from our cooperations with companies, foundations and media partners who will support and back your project financially.

Multilingual

Start your wemakeit campaign in up to four languages (en/de/fr/it) – in Swiss francs or in Euro – this allows you to reach an international audience.

Testing 424

Feedback

Consulting

Word of honor: We remain at your side for the entire duration of your campaign, providing you with online feedback and tips. For personalized coaching, individual communication strategies and in order to promote your project, we offer our wemakeit packages.

In good company

Success is contagious: Almost 70% of all crowdfunding campaigns on wemakeit come to a successful close; more than on any other platform. Yours could be the next one.

Open-door policy

Our help center is included in our service fee. Whenever you or your backers have a question – we are available 24/7.

Presale 424

Finances

You may trust us

We are the only platform to debit financial contributions immediately. This guarantees that you will get all of the funds collected and the amount of your funding goal will not be diminished by declined credit card payments. We will pay out to you the funds you collect quickly and reliably within 10 days.

Transparent Costs

If your project concludes successfully, we deduct 6.0% in service and 4.0% in payment fees of the total amount. Not more and not less. If you shouldn’t make it, you will not incur any costs at all.

Market Testing & Pre-sale

Your wemakeit campaign will tell you whether people care about your idea and at the same time you can carry out a pre-sale of your product free of risk. You will be able to connect with customers ready to spend it and roll out your product with necessary funds safely secured.

A Crowdfunding Project – How Does It Work?

Idea 424

Your Idea

You, your team, your start-up or your organisation are/is intent on carrying out a project but the necessary funds are still missing. Is your project attributable to at least one of our categories and does it conform to our guidelines? If so, you are ready to go: More than 5500 projects have already been successfully funded through wemakeit – maybe yours will be next.

Definition 424

Define Your Project

First you enter all relevant information on the project with our interactive editor. Where do you fix your funding goal and for how long will your campaign be running? You describe your idea using images, video and text and you explain in detail – most importantly! – the rewards. The backers will get these rewards in return for their financial contribution. The more interesting the rewards, the easier it is to find a large number of backers. Once you finished editing your project, we will activate it for you. We make sure your project conforms to our guidelines and we will get back to you in case we still have questions or remarks. As soon as everything is in place, we will activate your campaign for publication and continue to provide you with hands-on advice. Would you like to discuss your project with a crowdfunding expert before starting it? Book your personal coaching session.

Planning 424

Plan Your Campaign

It pays off to set out a communication strategy in advance, before the project begins. After all, what’s necessary first and foremost is for your potential backers to actually learn about your crowdfunding campaign. Think about whom you could write to and when and how to do this. Think about who could help you spread the word about your project. Tell everyone close to you in your network so as to be sure that your family and friends will be supporting you right from the very beginning. Let us know if you would like us to help you design your own personalized communications strategy.

Backers 424

Get Hold of Backers

As soon as your campaign is online, you make as much noise as possible: personally, on social media, through mailings – the more people to know about it, the better! Do not forget: on wemakeit, it’s «all or nothing». Your project needs to make it to at least 100% of its funding goal otherwise it ends without success and the backers get their money back. Going strong in the beginning will take you far – if you can make it to between 20 and 30% within the first week, chances are that you will conclude your campaign successfully.

Success 424

Conclude Your Campaign

If you fund your project with success, we will transfer the amount collected minus 6.0% service charge and 4.0% transaction fees to your account. In case your project does not make it to 100% of its funding goal, all your backers will get their money back. In this case, you will not incur any costs. But actually, we very much believe that your crowdfunding campaign will make it and that you will be able to realize your plans.

This is how your wemakeit campaign will take off like a rocket

You want your project to be taken care of by experts and present it to the largest crowdfunding community in Switzerland? You need look no further, it’s all here!
