2,527 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
Editor's Note: Karinna Kittles-Karsten has been keeping a journal of her crowdfunding journey and sharing it with us here on Crowdsourcing.org. In this fourth entry, she talks about cultivating the right relationships to support her web TV series, "Love Around the World." Also be sure to have a look at the previous entries in her crowdfunding diary.
This week what I am discovering as I prepare for my Love Around the World crowdfunding campaign is how key relationships are to a successful campaign experience.
This is where my experience as a Love Educator and CEO of SacredLove.com inspiring and supporting individuals to create successful relationships kicks in.
Ask yourself, What relationships do I have that will help my campaign? Then identify them and figure out how to focus on the right relationships.
The relationship that we have with our contacts including friends, family, peers, colleagues, potential partners and supporters has to feel authentic to go the distance in a campaign.
So how does one do this?
Spend time going through your contacts and your wish list of supporters that you know and sorting out which ones would resonate with YOU, YOUR Project, or The Purpose. Put the others to the side.
These resonating folks will form the beginning of your right relationship power group. Think of yourself as a matchmaker for your campaign and the right supporters. The better the match, the more word of mouth ambassadors you will have and the more success potential for your campaign.
