    CCP 050: How To Run Your Pre-Launch Facebook Group

    CCP 050: How To Run Your Pre-Launch Facebook Group

    In today’s episode, Nalin talks about everything that you can do with a Facebook group during pre-launch to build a community feeling and create excitement for your project launching on crowdfunding. Facebook groups are proven ways to engage and get to know people interested in your idea. Don’t miss it!



    [0:24]: Why do you want a pre-launch Facebook group?
    Pre-launch is not only for paid promotion but also to build a real community of real people excited about your project. Facebook groups are a great way to do just that. 
    [3:50]: What questions should you ask?
    If you set up your group as private, not only will it give it a sense of exclusivity, but it will also be an opportunity to ask important questions to collect data from your audience.
    [7:25]: Tell people what to expect
    People want to know what they’ll get from being part of your group. Be explicit and make sure you share content and interact constantly so people know that you’re there.
    [10:20]: Friends and family 
    If you want to get the ball rolling, your friends and family are a great asset to increase the engagement when you first start your group.
    [13:29]: Share benefits and features
    People don’t buy anything without knowing what it’ll do for them. Make sure to use the group to share all of the benefits and features of your product, and how it can help your audience.
    [13:41]: Group activities
    Create scheduled moments where people can do activities together and interact with you and with each other. A Livestream on Fridays, a “share where you’re working from” post on Wednesdays, or a “what game are you playing right now” Thursdays. Anything that speaks to your audience and makes them want to engage.

    [13:41]: Landing Pages For Each Audience

    CCP 048: Answering Crowdfunding Questions

    Nalin gets an abundance of crowdfunding questions all the time. In this episode, she goes through some of the most commonly asked questions and answers them. If you’re someone in the crowdfunding space or just getting started, these questions are sure to have crossed your mind at some point and if they haven’t yet, they probably will in the future. No matter where you are in your crowdfunding journey, you’re going to want to take a listen!



    [1:18]: #1: How Do I Market My Project?
    Marketing is all about attention. You should be making sure that your product has that attention and from the right people. Let’s discuss who to get attention from, where to go to get the attention, and how to go about getting it.
    [7:11]: Paying For Attention
    Sometimes you have to pay for people to notice you and that’s not “wrong.” So many companies do it and maybe you should too.
    [9:32]: Earning Attention
    The best way to earn attention is through organic marketing and relationship building. It takes time and there is a right way to do it. Make sure you’re doing it correctly!
    [13:57]: #2: How Do You Get Your Community?
    Your community is like an upside down triangle. It’s those people at the bottom who you want to foster and care for. However, you will, inevitably, lose people along the way. Don’t panic. That’s normal.
    [19:23]: #3: Does This Actually Work Or Am I Wasting My Time?
    Does crowdfunding really work? If you are having this thought, stop what you’re doing and listen to this right now.

Clarifying the mystery

I was dubious at first because she starts from “what is crowdfunding” but the more I listen the more she gives really helpful tips for my first Kickstarter campaign. There are assumptions I made that she has revealed as so wrong. I have so much more clarity on what my next steps are and the first is keep listening here!
