Creating something, a simple image, a short video, a mobile game or anything costs money. And money in today’s world might be a hard thing to come by. After the long process of searching for funds, basically fails, many turn to crowdfunding. Yes, they turn directly to you, the consumer, presenting something, an end product and they ask you for your money to make it happen.
But this is not a simple process, it is not easy to just get on the internet, ask and receive millions of dollars from people all across the globe. If it was that easy everyone would just do it and while many might use that money to create something worth it, many more would just abuse this system and con people so they could steal all the money and get away with it.
Now I am saying all this cause I’ve seen quite a few ideas, good ones on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo that fail miserably just cause they had no idea how to present their goal correctly while not looking like a total fraud in the process. Yeah, sure there are many articles on the internet supposedly showing or describing step by step the correct way to do things: where to ask, who to ask and how to ask, but that way might not work for you and your project.
Luckily the guys over at Choice & Loans have created a very interesting interactive guide to crowdfunding for startups that compares every big platform out there, insider tips, awesome campaigns and the stories behind them in one ultimate infographic. So if you are looking to crowdfund your project, I highly advise you to look at this guide as it’s really helpful.
