Here are five key steps to help get your Lift Project started:’
1. Set Up Your Profile
Join our community!
It’s pretty simple, all you have to do is set up your profile, upload a profile picture and write a bio to introduce yourself. This is the start of your journey!
2. Polish Up Your Project
Get your project idea organised!
Give us some background information on how the idea came to be, you want to give people further insight into your project and its overall meaning. What are you hoping to achieve through your idea? Has it been done before? If so, what makes yours different?
Try and give it a catchy title and craft content that describes a real solution to a real problem. You want to inspire readers and build their desire to support you and share your project. Why should they care about it? Give people incentive to support your idea.
3. Create a Funding Goal
Time to talk money!
Build out your budget and calculate all the expenses involved in bringing your project to life. It’s important to deliver the rewards to backers as promised (most projects offer 3-10 reward tiers, usually physical products or special experiences).
It’s free to start a project and funding is all-or-nothing. If you don’t achieve your goal, you won’t receive any money and won’t be charged any fee!
4. Build Your Crowd
Time to dig up your networking skills! (Or build them, if you haven’t already!)
The first 48 hours are crucial in developing your project’s momentum. It’s important to build your crowd strategically before your project launch in order to secure your backers. Leverage your network – don’t underestimate the people you know and the communities that you are in. More often than not, these people will want to support you in your endeavours!
5. Submit & Share!
It’s time to submit your project for approval!
Ensure that you review it with your team or trusted network before final submission. Triple check everything – make sure you’re happy with what you’re submitting.
Once you submit, it’s time to start promoting! Remember to stay connected with your backers and provide regular updates on your project – after all, they’re the one’s funding and supporting your idea! Utilise your comment interactions so you can receive feedback and validation of your business, products or services. Remember, all feedback is good feedback!
