How Does Reward-Based Crowdfunding Work?

This type of Crowdfunding platform allows people who have active campaigns to give their backers “Rewards” for supporting their project when they make donations in a set denomination. For instance, let’s say that your favorite local band has a “Goal” of raising $10,000 to pay for Studio time and production costs on their first CD. Any fan who donates $50 is entitled to a free copy of their CD once it’s produced. Fans who contribute $150 are entitled to a signed copy of the CD. Anyone who donates $500 or more to their cause is entitled to have them perform live at their event. Offering great Rewards to your backers is a great way to encourage support among your biggest friends, fans, and family.

What If I Don’t Have a Reward to Offer My Backers?

No problem! This type of fundraiser is known as a “Donation-Based” campaign. Although it is always nice to offer your backers a token of appreciation for their support, if you don’t have a Reward to give them, you’re still welcome to host your Crowdfunding campaign at WeLoveYourCampaign.com.

How Do I Make My Crowdfunding Page?

Crowdfunding is still a relatively new concept to many people. We understand that many people don’t have a strong technological background. If you need help designing your Crowdfunding campaign page, our dedicated staff members are happy to help you. They’re skilled with designing attractive and professional pages that can feature images and videos with more information on your project.

How Will People Know about My Crowdfunding Campaign?

The best way to generate donations for your campaign is by contacting people you already know. Our platform allows you to easily share your campaign with your friends, family, and fans on Facebook, Twitter, and your other favorite social networking websites. In most cases, you’ll find the greatest number of supporters in your existing circle of friends, family, and associates. Generally, a Rewards-based Crowdfunding campaign encourages larger donations so you can meet your funding goals faster.

Do I Have to Pay for Anything to Start a Campaign?

Nope! There is absolutely no charge for kicking off a Crowdfunding campaign at WeLoveYourCause.com.

Do You Collect Any Fees at All from My Campaign?

We never ask our users to pay a listing fee, however, there is a nominal 5% flat fee on all transactions that are generated using our Crowdfunding interface. These fees are used to develop and improve our technology and cover costs associated with managing all aspects of our service.
