The Crowdfunding Task and Action Plan™
Is designed to provide you with the professional and personal knowledge you will need in order to successfully bring your crowdfunding campaign to life, and market it to the world. Creating a blueprint for success doesn’t start with the campaign launch.
There needs to be a considerable amount of preparation of material, marketing, and a targeted effort to build an audience and a crowd ahead of your campaign using social media, lead nurturing email marketing and to reach out to bloggers, journalists, family, and friends. Establishing all of this ahead of time for consistent engagement, before, and throughout the campaign will help to keep the campaign top of mind for potential funders. And if your campaign does really well, it may rise in the category rankings or even get featured on the homepage, leading to a huge boost in traffic to your campaign.
We detail for you in a simple-to-use planning tool, practical and proven components necessary to execute a successful compliant equity, or reward or donation -based crowdfunding campaign, with steps and elements that people have used to raise billions of dollars as part of an ever expanding crowdfunding industry.
Having a solid plan and setting the right expectations and anticipating common problems can help all stakeholders reach their respective goals, and can help bring more successful campaigns to life.

A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool is essential for every person or company using crowdfunding. Until now, most CRMs have been too expensive and complex. The CrowdfundingCRM platform includes a simple CRM we developed that provides critical data and functions the average crowdfunding sales rep needs. This includes marketing automation that’s built right into the platform, as well as a whole host of other communication tools.
For most people or organizations that want to use crowdfunding to raise capital, the cost of using a full-on marketing automation solution for even themselves is too expensive. With CrowdfundingCRM that’s no longer true. Now, you can use it for yourself and put lead scoring, sales alerts, lead nurturing, and a comprehensive sales strategy in each of your crowdfunding teams’ hands to help them develop personal client relationships and raise capital faster.

Our “Get Social” marketing tool allows you to develop pre-built social post templates with the appropriate hashtags (#) and shortened URLs, so your Crowdfunding sales rep's can deploy them with no formatting or other technical skills needed, and so much more
