How To Crowdfund Online

Crowdfunding is one of the most accessible avenues for creators looking to make real money. You put a lot of time and effort into creating content for your fans⁠, so offering an easy, no-pressure way for them to give back is great for securing a regular stream of income.

Crowdfunding can take many forms, depending on what type of funding you’re looking for. If you’re looking for startup funds for a specific project, you could rally your followers by setting up a funding goal and hosting live fundraising events.

If you’re looking to fund a specific project, here are some crowdfunding sites to explore:

  • Kickstarter. Kickstarter is the web’s most widely used crowdfunding platform, so the volume of supporters and knowledge of the brand is its biggest asset. 
  • Indiegogo. If you don’t have a set funding target, you might prefer Indiegogo, which offers a more flexible fundraising goal, letting you receive funds after your deadline.
  • Fundable. Fundable lets startups offer equity in exchange for funding, making it a great tool for finding investors. Currently, though, Fundable is only available to users in the United States. 
  • Crowdcube. Crowdcube offers companies that succeed in their fundraising goals exclusive benefits from their partner organizations through their Crowdcube Funded Club
  • Crowdfunder. Crowdfunder let companies raise capital through accredited investors, with a network of more than 12,000 venture capitalists and angel investors to connect with. 
  • Mighty Cause. With no fees or waiting period for approvals before launching your campaign, Mighty Cause’s easy-to-use platform is great for quickly creating a funding page to collect donations.
  • SeedInvest. SeedInvest allows laypeople who aren’t accredited investors to invest in companies on their sites. On SeedInvest, your backers are investors, rather than supporters⁠—so funds are given in exchange for equity.
