We’re glad to see you’ve gotten started with Podbean Crowdfunding! Here are a few tips about setting up a great crowdfunding page:
Add a tagline. It’s a call to action for people to support your podcast. This shows below your logo on your campaign page and is the default text for social media shares.
Include a video. It’s the best way to share your story in your own voice.Tell the story behind your podcast. It can be a great tool to boost your campaign.
Share a great story. Tell a bit about yourself and what you can do with your fans’ support. Be compelling, make them laugh or cry...make them want to be part of what you’re doing!
Set goals. It’s nice to show patrons how money will be used and specify targets for yourself. Setting multiple goals, starting with an obtainable goal. Setting some lower level goals allows your patrons to see successful progress. You can build excitement around reaching different goals for your show.
Offer several small level rewards (the best practice is to start with a $1 level). Pledges of $1-5 are most popular. Remember, these are monthly pledges.Please note the amount is a recurring monthly payment, so set the amounts accordingly. This is a long term income stream to support your continued podcast, not a one time donation.
We hope these tips help you on your way to creating an income stream! For more information on how to promote your crowdfunding campaign check out this article.
