Now it's time to build your campaign. My Window of Opportunity provides a state-of-the-art interface to create and manage as many teams and campaigns as you need. And, unlike other crowd funding sites that require you to ask for the full amount of contributions needed up-front, My Window of Opportunity allows you to split your campaign into up to three phases. No more waiting for a fully-successful campaign before you can begin. Now you can receive funds from one phase while collecting donations on another.
Setting Your Financial Goals
With your campaign split into separate phases, it is now time to determine just how much money you need to complete each phase. Start by determining what the minimum amount of funds each phase needs. Then, you will need to pad the goal a little, but not too much. The goal is to ensure you cover any expenses during the campaign process. *You can learn more about the costs of crowd funding by reading Pricing & Fees.
So, when setting your financial goals, be honest. You are more likely to reach your goals if donors know they can trust you are asking only for what you need.
Gauging your Audience
A new innovation to help you measure your audience's interest, found only on My Window of Opportunity, is the ability to do a "Discovery Phase" before you launch your campaign. Now you have the tools needed to see if enough people are interested in supporting your idea before you even begin asking for donations. Potential donors are able to read your campaign proposal, rate it with up to 5 stars, and even leave you personal comments about your idea. And when you feel you have enough donors interested, simply launch the campaign.
