Goodies- that certain something

Goodies- that certain something

Goodies are your reward for the financial support. They should make you want to support your project and often decide whether the boosters are on board. It is therefore worth investing a little more time here and offering the most attractive and creative goodies possible. Examples: unique experiences, personal invitations, homemade gifts, etc. The more exclusive, the better. Good to know: For each goodie you can set the amount of the availability and also if it should be available for a limited time only A planned delivery time is entered for each goodie.  As the shipping costs vary from country to country, the actual shipping costs can be entered country by country.   If items of clothing are offered as goodies, the boosters can also immediately select the desired size. You can upload a maximum of 3 pictures per goodie (we recommend at least one) Boosters can also boost without selecting a goodie. Goodies with pictures are automatically transferred to...
Stage funding, exclusive to Crowdify

Stage funding, exclusive to Crowdify

It is not always easy to decide on a target amount. Maybe 10'000 CHF would be enough to launch the project, but with 15'000 CHF you could make additional investments. In such cases, a stage funding might be a good choice. Stage funding explained using an example: Johanna wants to open her own café. She has already found a suitable location. She needs CHF 20,000 to rent it for half a year and buy the minimal furnishings she needs. But for another CHF 6,000 she could also set up a great outdoor seating area. And for a further CHF 3,000, a super cosy reading corner. But CHF 29,000 is quite a lot of money and she doesn't know if that many people are interested in her project and will support it. Instead of risking everything (Remember: Crowdfunding = all-or-nothing principle), she decides on a stage funding.  She sets the first stage (the first crowdfunding target) to CHF 20,000, the second stage (the second crowdfunding target) to CHF 26,000 and the third and last stage (the...
Project preview for a good start

Project preview for a good start

A good start is extremely important for a successful crowdfunding campaign. If a project has no supporters yet, the inhibition threshold for potential boosters is much higher. Therefore it is essential that something happens in the first 48 hours. With the link to the project preview you can inform your closest crowd about your project before the start. They can then have a look at the project in peace, pick out at a favorite goodie and subscribe to the project news. This way they will be ready to support the project as soon as it starts.   When is the project preview available? As soon as the project has been checked and released by Crowdify and you have set the start date in the project dashboard. From this point on your project link, which you can also find in the dashboard, will be active.
