ABC’s of Crowdfunding | Crowdfunding research | Scoop.it
Ask for contributions. Obvious right? Of course it is. This is your call to action, your tool for success, and all it is, is a 3 letter word---just ask. It’s one thing to showcase your campaign and say “Check out my project, isn’t it cool?

''I’ve read a few a-Zs of crowdfunding – notably the recent one from FunderHut so I thought I’d produce my own


Ask – this is the essence of crowdfunding – you are asking people for money or support. You need to look them in the eye, smile and bring them with you. Look at it from their point of view – why should they give any money away to any project at all; why should they even consider looking at your project and why should they give you any money. Crowdfunding is about the donor or investor more than it is about the project.''

So a video is definitely important for a crowdfunding campaign! But what should a good crowdfunding video consist of?

Trends in Pricing and Duration of Crowdfunding projects | Crowdfunding research | Scoop.it
A couple of weeks ago we linked to Craig Mod’s gorgeous and thorough breakdown of his Kickstarter project Art Space Tokyo. In the post Craig sampled other popular projects on Kickstarter, and explained how their choices and outcomes affected the way he constructed his project. Craig also offers some advice on optimal pricing and project length to future project creators. We were intrigued and impressed by Craig’s research and conclusions, and we’ve now compiled data from our entire database to see how it holds up. Let’s dig in.
