Crowdfunding

Joshua HardwickJoshua Hardwick

Crowdfunding is big business – just look at this insane stat from Kickstarter:

But it isn’t just Kickstarter that’s doing well, there’s also: IndieGogo, GoFundMe, and many other crowdfunding websites.

Note: If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of crowdfunding, it’s essentially the idea of raising funding for a project from a crowd of people (rather than just one person).

Websites like Kickstarter allow companies (and people) to raise money for their project(s) via crowdfunding (i.e. having a crowd of people invest in a business/idea for a relatively low cost).

For example, LIFX managed to raise over $1 million via a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for their smart light bulb invention (despite only having a target of $100,000):

Many of these companies will often “repay” their “backers” with a mention (and link) on their website.

Here’s how to do it:

You can find crowdfunding campaigns that give backers links on their websites using Google search strings, such as:

[ecko_wide]kickstarter-search[/ecko_wide]

And…

[ecko_wide]indiegogo-search[/ecko_wide]

Sift through the search results looking for pages that might fit the bill.

Here’s one that looks promising:

Looking at the page itself, you can see that by pledging $50+, you can get a guaranteed link:

[ecko_wide]kickstarter-link[/ecko_wide]

If it’s within budget (and you also feel the link is worth the price), simply make the contribution.

Keep looking through the search results to find even more opportunities!
