We are at it again today continuing the crowd funding series. If you missed Thursday’s post, you will want to read Connecting With A Cause, before continuing. There is another element that has the potential to catapult our projects to heights unimaginable. I said that Thursday and Friday right? Today’s highlight is just as potent. What is it?
Drum roll……connecting with a solution. People are motivated by problem solvers. Solutions to help better their lives. How about solving a problem that pulls on people. So much so, that they can’t help but get involved. Thinking?
Here are a few examples:
- Start a business that solves the transportation issue of patients to doctors that connects them via mobile video
- Start a roaming food service that solves the problem of construction sites for lunch meals or places that can’t get access to hot meals as needed
- Start a business that solves the problem of people not having _______________(you fill in the blank)
There are endless possibilities to connect your project to a solution that simply makes the world a better place to live. You have heard the saying before- solve a problem, you will never be without a business. Okay, I just made that up, but it makes sense.
Sure, you can not have a link to anything. However, I’m learning the more you place on being serviceable to people the more they want in. Could I be wrong? Of course. But I see the trend of helping others to help yourself is a sure fire way to grow your project.
The success of your fund raising efforts could greatly be impacted by WHEN you decide to launch your project.
See something you don’t like. Create the project to change it. That simple. Instead of searching for a solution. Think for a moment that you are the solution. Yes, you. With all of your ___________________ (fill in the blank).
Remember the elements for effectiveness for crowd funding your project? Guess what? They are not contingent on our perfection. Just having an unyielding compromise to put your all into your project being successful.
So let’s read it in the comments below. What problems have you solved through crowd funding?
