Are you confused on how to begin? Do you ever sit to ponder on how best to improve traffic-sales of your products online? Then, you need to look no further as I would love to introduce you to the billionaires’ secret card known as Kickstarter.
In this 21st century, online/ internet marketing is a weapon used to boost businesses from zero level to multi-billion dollar agencies and companies through Kickstarter platform. Though a quite amount of people use the platform as a means of funding projects, some invest in peoples businesses.
What then is Kickstarter in lame terms?
According to the third law of motion by Newton which states; to every action or movement, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In prospect, Kickstarter is more of the force pulling businesses in equal and opposite reaction by meeting the proposed targeted market within a range of time.
Now, you must be asking yourself, how can Kickstarter improve my business?
The first thing you need understand to become successful in life and business; one needs to be creative, patient and determined with a set goal.
Noted! I agree with you that it is strictly for fundraising or investment purposes, but have you thought of advertising your goods and services to meet this different range of people in their millions?
How can it be done?
- Upload a short video of your goods and services
- Tell the public what makes your product unique
- Let the people know you are ready to negotiate on price depending on the quantity of purchase
- Make the time to goal short
- Always update your blog or post on a daily basis to show how active you are.
- Keep to your delivery as promised.
- Make offers for reward on a purchase but let it be limited to avoid problems.
- Always be positive minded and show gratitude.
- Make your tagline short, super attractive, and compelling.
- Make sure to be creative as you justify your products.
What does one need to begin exploring its benefits?
Although Kickstarter helps in gathering monetary resources from the general populace through a circuit of traditional investment, the platform is open to anyone above 18 years of age. Kickstarter gives one the opportunity to either become a creator and backer. To be affiliated with the platform, an individual needs to be a residence of the United States with credentials such as driver’s license, bank account, and a credit or debit card.
However, not making proper technical/calculative risk and total required expenses may fail in delivery even with a robust and successful campaign. It is for this reasons that Kickstarter holds defaulters liable in payment for damages incurred by failure to deliver as stipulated or promised.
Are there any hidden charges?
No there isn’t. Kickstarter only collects 5% of the raised fund while Amazon charges an extra 3 to 5 %. They lay no claims to the works produced by them on one’s fundraising or investments but make all uploaded videos and media public and irremovable from the site.
There is a need to keep up with the momentum that comes with the product lunch. As a businessman, all you need is spreading words of your products and services via social media by keeping your fans updated and engaged with exciting stories, offers, and new projects in the pipeline.
You should know that campaign with more than 30 to 50 updates weekly raises the product level of awareness. However, constant upload of beautiful pictures and short taglines will help boost sales and traffic.
I hope you profit from this little-shared information in growing your business with the help of Kickstarter.
