Get started in 8 Steps
Set up your Lift Women profileLift Women is Australia’s first female-focussed crowdfunding platform — we’re deeply passionate about facilitating fundraising for women. Your visibility starts here so set up your profile, upload a profile picture and write a bio to introduce yourself.
Plan your crowdfunding pitchIt starts with your story — how you are providing a real solution to a real problem and how you will take it to the next level with crowdfunding? Write in a personal and inspiring way that connects with readers. And don’t forget visuals speak volumes!
Set your funding goalHow much money do you need in order to complete your objectives? Lift Women is an all-or-nothing crowdfunding platform so you will only receive your funds if your project is 100% funded! Share openly what you will use the funds for.
Create your rewards structureRewards-based crowdfunding means that backers receive a non-financial reward. What can you uniquely offer that would genuinely excite people? For example, Cyana, a florist, was fundraising to hold workshops for people with disabilities and her rewards included silk floral arrangements and even wedding packages.
Don’t forget to carefully craft your rewards copyHow you communicate your rewards matters too so don’t let this be an afterthought. Highlight the benefits and exclusivity with the intention to captivate and convert. If backers will be receiving a sneak peek or huge discount, make this clear!
Build your crowdMaximise the chances of success by maximising exposure within the first 48 hours. Reach out to your inner circle, social media and media outlets. Remember — people want to support fundraising for women-led businesses, so be bold driven by your vision.
Submit your projectNow you've got everything ready, do a final review — we recommend doing it with a trusted team member or loved one — and submit your project for approval. Launch your crowdfunding campaign on Lift Women and do a happy dance!
