You can find tips on structuring and running your campaign by signing up for FAITHIFY University, our free online crowdfunding course. There are sections on Making the Most of Your Campaign Page, Using Social Media to Your Advantage, Donor Engagement, and more.
Thank your supporters! A list can be downloaded at anytime during your campaign. Get to your Dashboard using the “My Account” link at the top right of the home page, then choose the “My Projects” tab on the right of the Dashboard. Hover over the image of your campaign to see four icons. Click the icon on the right, “Export Orders” to download a list of backers and their email addresses. Be sure to respect the wishes any people who have pledged anonymously, as indicated on the Backers List on your campaign page.
Perhaps one of your backers would agree to write a short testimonial you can use in inspiring others to join them in supporting your project?
Update your supporters on how both the crowdfunding and the actual campaign implementation are progressing. To make an update, go to your Dashboard using the “My Account” link at the top right of the home page, then choose the “My Projects” tab. Hover over the image of your campaign and click the first icon on the left, “Edit Project.” There is a text field for entering an update which will show as a tab on your campaign page.
Remember, you are nurturing a lasting relationship with your community of supporters!
