Talking about your idea to friends is a good way to make sure you’re ready. Are you comfortable with answering their questions? If not, it may be too soon to ask backers for their money. Spend some time fine tuning your project. A couple of days of reflection can make a huge difference, but when you’re ready don’t hesitate!
Once again put yourself in a backer’s shoes and make your BoostBloom project title specific, easy to remember and simple. As a rule of thumb, do not use generic words like "help," "support," "fund." “assist”, in your project title.
You are not here to ask someone for a favor. You are offering them a unique experience they’ll love.
If you re raising fund for an album, a book…, make sure you include your album or book title in your Boostbloom’s project title. For example, if your band is called “Slow Rush” and the album you want to record is titled “Leafless”, your BoostBloom project title could be something like “Slow Rush record their first LP, Leafless”. This project title is more catchy than “make my album “or “write my book “ and makes your project easily findable by backers.
Your project image is what will show on BoostBloom and on the rest of the web. Like before, choose a picture that’s specific to your project, descriptive and that looks pretty!
This short text shows in your project’s widget. The goal here is to quickly tell your audience what your project is about. Like in your video, stay focused and make sure your text clearly describes in a few words what your project hopes to accomplish.
Some would call that an elevator pitch but it would be fat too long. We’d call this a hand shaking pitch: what would you say to describe your project to someone you are shaking hand with? How would you do it?
This is your opportunity to gain trust from backers. Tell them who you are, why you chose this project, share with them links to your prior works. In short share, communicate, and be transparent. Trust us, backers will appreciate.
Upload your video on Youtube or Vimeo, share the link when you create your project and you're done! Just make your video interesting and we guarantee you'll attract backers !
