Social media promotion is one of the major areas you need to excel at for better crowdfunding campaign promotion. Promoting your campaign goes beyond simply having your profile on various social media platforms; it is also about planning a schedule for each social platform in order to make the entire promotion strategic, smooth, and consistent.

These are not just tools to make your crowdfunding project promotion easier, but also help in enhancing overall business communication and success. Have a look:

  1. Jordan thanks for going through these. Mailchimp for me is very important in any crowdfunding campaign. Build that support and then utilize mailchimp to notify them once the campaign is live. The bigger list of subscribers, the better! There is no spam, once they are subscribers.
