Picture this - your campaign is live and it is going pretty well, but it’s not quite fully funded. It’s in these moments that you can start to panic and look for any and all ways to grab people’s attention. In this episode, Nalin discusses proactive things you can do to get to the finish line. She breaks down those myths of algorithms and paid ads; how those tools are helpful but how important it is not to rely on them too much.

Does this work? Is it legit?
[7:03]: Legitimacy
Do these companies have lists of people who fit the profile of a backer or who have backed other campaigns before? Yes! But this does not necessarily translate to them automatically backing your campaign. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

For these backers to support your campaign, you need to be prepared, doing well and funded early on.
