A Crowdfunding Project – How Does It Work?
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: Start your project and we will get in touch with you shortly, providing you with information on the next steps. More than 2100 projects have already been successfully funded through wemakeit – maybe yours will be next.
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've finished editing your project, you submit it and our coaches will provide you with feedback and tips. You campaign will go online on the date indicated by you and we will continue to assist you with useful advice.
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.
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.
Conclude Your Campaign
If you fund your project with success, we will transfer the amount collected minus 10% in fees (6% service charge and 4% 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.
