- Telling your story
This is vital. Make sure you describe who you are, why you are fund raising and how you plan to use the money. As your project develops make sure to update your supporters. This will make your followers be a part of your journey.
- Build a team
Campaigns that have a team are more than three times likely to raise all the funds they need. Having a reliable team who campaign for you will make a great difference. A team will allow you to draw upon many different strengths and also you will be able to divide tasks so you can be successful in your crowdfunding.
- Tell Your Facebook Friends
Spreading the word on Facebook is a great way to increase your donations. Share your campaign with your network by sending messages to friends, groups and organising events.
- Tweet! Tweet! Tweet!
Twitter is another way to successfully increase your donations. It provides a wide audience with which to share your story. Also use Twitter to reach out to other organizations with a vested interest in your campaign. This will not only increase your campaign reach but also provide an opportunity to form a partnership with that organization to help with your fundraising.
- Throw an Event

This way you will be able to really convey your passion for your project and how their funding would create a social impact.
