Which crowdfunding platform or site to choose

First, before choosing a crowdfunding platform or site, ask yourself a few questions or think about why you want to launch a crowdfunding campaign.

Choosing a crowdfunding site too quickly will not serve you. On the contrary, it could harm your business strategy.

Here are some questions to ask yourself before embarking on this adventure.

  1. Why do I want to do a crowdfunding campaign?
  2. Who is the target audience that I want to reach?
  3. What is the WHY for my business?
  4. I need these funds for when?

Once you have answered these questions, you will benefit from downloading our preparatory guide to find out if a crowdfunding campaign is right for you.

Finally, also look at the strategies you have in place. For example, are you at the stage of having business partners? And what kind of partners you’re looking for that would look forward to a crowdfunding campaign?

On the other hand, if you are looking for collaborators, the timing is excellent to get started.

When you’ve answered these questions, and your answers are positive, look for the crowdfunding site that’s right for you, meets your values, and meets your needs.

In addition, another critical element to choose from is the payment provider of the platform. If you don’t know this provider, do some research before starting. Otherwise, you might have an unpleasant experience.

In short, there are thousands of crowdfunding sites around the world.
