Equity Crowdfunding Checklist

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

There are several key elements to running a successful equity crowdfunding campaign.

Here’s a checklist to consider:

Create a campaign plan -- list of what you will promote and when. 

This includes updates, events, and other activities to promote your fundraise.

Build the campaign documents -- the pitch deck, video, and talking points.

The content should be compelling and high-quality.

Identify your target audience -- know who will most likely fund your campaign.

It’s important to understand the careabouts of your audience to know how to promote your fundraise.

Assemble a team -- build a group to support the preparation, launch, and ongoing campaign.

The fundraise takes many skills, so it’s important to build a team to run the campaign.

Map your investor network -- segment your investors by type, interest, and group.

Consider what stage in the campaign to engage each of them.

Find additional investor groups -- consider social media and fundraising networks.

It’s important to have additional investor groups to contact during the campaign, as your network will eventually run out.

Warm up your crowd -- prepare your network before the campaign begins.

Pre-campaign mailers prepare your network for the upcoming fundraise.
