Can Crowdfunding And Social Media Work To Success?
How is it possible that social media is one gauge if you will succeed or not with crowdfunding a project? Well, this is one timely question alright. Social media users have been consistently growing each day since it was first invented. When talking about crowdfunding, it talks about the power of the people in making dreams come true by way of funding that dream. Such dream can be about any project that the people find appealing for a variety of reasons. As crowd funding involves people, it is therefore related to social stuffs.
What are social stuffs? These are things that concerns people. It includes the things they commonly like such as connecting with family and friends in Facebook or Twitter. And Crowdfunding concerns a lot of people. Why? It is actually the people who raise small dollar amounts to help fund the startup of a business or project they find interesting.
To be able to reach the target seed capital to start up a business/project, it requires lots of people. A huge crowd is needed as they say. And if you happen to be that person who needs seed capital to start a project, how then are you going to tap so many people to help fund your idea? Are you going to quit your day job and go house to house to convince people? Are you going to call each of the persons listed in the telephone directory and ask them to hear you out?
If you do so, it will take you ages. That is to put aside the fact that probably half of it has turned you down or ignore you. If this is the case with crowd funding, will you go out the trouble of doing it without certainty of success? The thought alone would have turned you off, right?
So folks, this is the very reason why crowdfunding and social media should work together. When it comes to connecting people from all walks of life, social media is the thing to turn to. It connects people and bridges the gaps. It makes reaching out to the people whom you know, you do not know and will know in the future seem very easy and possible. And what better way to tap these people to hear you out and see what you are up to than to connect with them in an instant?
How would you do that? Well, almost all parts of the world with internet know Facebook. The huge number of followers twitter has can make you reach out to as many people as possible. Not to mention the exposure that GooglePlus and LinkedIn can give you. So, there is no reason why you cannot tap a huge crowd to raise funds for what you have in mind.
