The Tiny Toones crew has landed! The Asia:NZ Young Leaders foundation raised over $5,600 a few months back to bring the crew over. They arrived last week, and since then they’ve been travelling and performing around the north island. We’ve been keeping an eye out on their where-abouts on their tour page – which you should check it out if you have a moment – some awesome footage of their shows so far!
Checking up on them reminded us it was about time to pass on Lisa’s advice after their successful PledgeMe campaign. So here goes:
What did you like about pledgeme?
Growing fundraising tool, still quite a novelty for kiwis. Nice simple website design and easy to navigate/ edit info/ include updates.
How did you find the experience?
Great pledgeme team. Seamless setup process and lots of great support along the way. It was challenging to decide when to set the deadline and even our target.
Any tips for newbies?
Keep promoting it through your networks, obviously social media is the easiest way but take the time to ask people personally as well. They are more likely to come on board that way. Remind people a couple of times, don’t assume people will pledge the first time they hear it. Create urgency and stay positive.
I say crowdfunding, you say: Awesome- do it!
