How you can fund your Steem Project

in steemit •  11 days ago


Hey Steemians!

The Steemit community is full of creative individuals who are coming up with new ways to grow and advance this space. If you just take a look at SteemProjects.com, you’ll see that there are already 338 projects declared on the site (as of the time I’m writing this post) and it can only be assumed that many more are pouring into @noisy’s inbox.

There are amazing projects like @Yensesa which is bringing citizens of third world countries new opportunities through Steem, @paolobeneforti’s SteemMarket which is building an online gallery on the blockchain for the Steem art community to showcase and sell their work, and @minnowsupport which is building a community for minnows to learn about and succeed on Steemit.

With all of these great ideas floating around and so many talented individuals behind these ideas, it’s only natural that funding will become a necessity. HyperFundIt is here to not only here to help project creators realize their visions, but also to help facilitate the funding and awareness they need to make it a success.

We’re currently the first funding platform for the Steem community, however, many more will pop up I’m sure of it. We hope that together we can help create a community of supportive individuals and collectively bring project creators’ visions to life.

If you’re reading this and thinking “Hey, that’s me!” and wondering “But how do I get funding?”

Here’s how you can get started

First, join our Discord Channel and tell us your story! We’ll happily discuss with you in detail about what you can do to succeed.

Then sign up on HyperFundIt and draft up a campaign telling your supporters what your project is about and what you’ll need funding for. During our beta period, we’ll be able to point you in the right direction and provide helpful feedback to your drafts. For more information on how to create a thorough and successful campaign you can check out 6 Tips to Launch a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign in 2018 or The Secret To Creating A Successful Fundraising Campaign.

Once your campaign is approved and ready to go, the fun begins! You’ll be able to connect with influencers in our network who will help promote your project for a percentage of your donations (you get to decide the percentage). As influencers spread the news about your project to their thousands of followers, awareness for your project will grow and you’ll receive much more funding than if you were to market on your own. If you don’t yet believe in the power of influencer marketing check out How Influencers Are Changing the Brand Awareness Game where we break down the essentials of influencer marketing.

A live example

If you’re looking for a clear example of how our platform works, check out @Yensesa’s campaign here. They’re currently in their in their Funding Phase and open to accepting donations!

Other steps to take

Another exciting way to boost your funding success while hosting a campaign is going out and building your network. For example, the HyperFundIt team will be attending the Steem Creators Conference from today until April 15th hosted by @steemcafe and his team.

At this conference, there will be many influential speakers with whom you may connect with. There will also be a pitch party where many aspiring project creators will have 3 minutes to pitch their ideas to their fellow Steemians. (This is where we’ll be hanging out too!) This is just the kind of event for those of you who are looking for funding to go to in order to get in front of the right crowd. Look out for more upcoming events by @steemcafe here.

Attend more functions like these, talk about your project to anyone who will listen, and you’ll soon find yourself with a strong support system for your project.

"You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step" - Martin Luther King Jr.

I hope that for those of you who were unsure of where to start, you now have a starting point.

Our team is dedicated to helping creators bring value to this platform whether that be by building a project or creating beautiful content. Inventors, entrepreneurs, creatives, visionaries, artists, and even enthusiastic Steem supporters are all welcome on HyperFundIt. Don’t be afraid to reach out and take that first step!

More Information

If you would like to become an Influencer and work with Project Creators on HyperFundIt, sign up here and join our discord channel for updates on new projects.

Yensesa and Hyperfundit are both looking for Influencers with ~5k+ followers. Participating Influencers will have the potential to earn around $2,000 - $3,000 USD depending on how the campaigns perform.

I look forward to hearing all your brilliant ideas!

I'm a little confused, is Jill paid from the crowdfund?

·

Great question! Yes, she is, she is paid a percentage of the funds raised. The project creator
(in this case Jack) would have set the percentage on his campaign so the influencer (Jill) would know the potential amount she can earn. Check out the [live campaigns] on HyperFundIt to see this in action.

That potentially leads to serious ethical issues; for an influencer to be taking money from the projects they promote. What are you planning to address the ethical side of this?

·
·
·

That's absolutely true, what ethical issues are you specifically referring to?

We've considered some controversial ethical issues revolving around influencer marketing in general such as transparent and honest sponsorships. That's why we're very strict about influencers following FTC guidelines.

We will enforce our right to kick people off the platform for infringing on FTC guidelines. We're also looking to build in a review/reputation system where users can review influencers.

We also like to drive home the message of honesty and transparency in any way we can to all of our users this includes project creators (through posts or direct communications).

It's also important to keep in mind that most supporters will be able to see through an ingenuine influencer. This will not only lower their chances for success on our platform, deter project creators from working with them, but also lose their followers' trust.

I hope that answers your questions. Do you have any more ethical issues? Let us know so we can find a way to resolve them. We're very strict about our company's values so any bit of advice is greatly appreciated!

It is the issue of transparency that I'm referring to so it's good to hear you will enforce an expectation of transparency.

It's also important to keep in mind that most supporters will be able to see through an ingenuine influencer.

I don't think that's empirically true. The crypto market has shown that dishonest influencers can continue to abuse their influence for a long time, even after being shown to be dishonest. We have examples with various Steemians associated with BitConnect, and well known crypto influencers on Twitter and YouTube.

Very nice campaign I am looking forward to this, I want to participate to be an influencer and see how this would work out. I have some followers but not as much as others have great idea @hyperfundit

·

don't use nice,awesome, preety etc words.

·
·
·
·

Yeah, why not use the word peety, sounds interesting...

·

yeah its nice cmpaign

·

very nice indeed!

·
·

Maybe even super nice, and awesomely preety...

Hi good to hear from you again @hiroyamagishi ! I'm happy that you support what we're doing and would love to work with you! :)

We were at the SteemCreators conference this past weekend in Vegas. Between that and our sudden increase of visibility, there's been an influx of project submissions so we're taking our campaign down to focus on helping our users succeed.

We're working with the project creators right now to draft up their campaigns, they will be available in the next week. There are some exciting campaigns in the works, I will keep you posted! :D

I have an idea,Block chain picture sales in steem.

Just letting you guys know you are not actually the first funding platform. @jerrybanfield has his @budgets project. Still cool to have more than 1 though ;)

·

Cool, thanks for letting us know! I feel like there should be even more platforms, there are hundreds of projects that need to be funded and hundreds more to come. The more help the better!

It's a good idea and I am looking forward to seeing more.

-Rob

Fantastic idea. Wishing Hyperfundit all the success in the world. Hopefully it can be used for 'good works' projects too. Steemit has great potential for supporting worthy causes.

·

Thank you! We're looking to expand into that, but need more infrastructure first :)

Hello Dtube. I'm sakib from Bangladesh. When we were students, we made a an organization(non profit) called Rural Environment and Social Development Organization (RESDO). We are trying to developing rural economy and the people healthy life. But we don't have enough fund to continue this project. If we get any help from any self-respectful person or organization than we could go ahead.
Thanks

Being new to this platform all I can do is produce content. And hope for up vote ! I'll comment more on other post and I always up vote the20180110_205222.gif things I like... Thanks all. Be well...

This is really awesome! As someone who has been debating taking on a Steem project once I finish up my current ones, I was trying to figure out if Utopian was an adequate way to fund a project.

This is really awesome to give an alternative way to fund project development. Going to use this service in the future.

·

Awesome, glad we can help! I look forward to learning more about your project in the future :D

-Rob

That's actually awesome to know ! thanks for the post. :)

geniaalll!!! hay muchas buenas propuestas solo espero alguien escuche a estas personas con buenas ideas y felicidades por esos craneos llenos de ideas....

Totally brilliant. I love the integration of crowdfunding with smart media tokens and cryptocurrency. Glad I found this video. Will definitely plug into what you are doing. Also, I love your very clever use of props to tell your story. SUPER SMART!

·

Thanks, glad you like what we're doing here! :D The props were my partner's idea, Iris. I'll pass the word to her! She is super clever and you'll be seeing more of this from her :)

-Rob

Nice video... very informative.

Congratulations @hyperfundit!
Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 3 with $ 553,72

its, perfect idea..

·

Thanks, still lot's of work to perfect it though! :)

-Rob

there is so many creative projects coming in on steemit, since it is really cheap to donate a portion of the steemit earnings.

goodluck guys.

·

Thank you sir, I appreciate that! :)

-Rob

Wonderful, but what I love the most about each publication that you do, is the neatness of your content ... How do you strive to make it perfect ... Congratulations

·

Thanks man, it's finding the format that works best for you and staying consistent with it. You can do it too! :)

-Rob

Video saved, I will watch it and follow you guys. It's pretty interesting. Hope it will work and you will get a lot of support!

·

I'm looking forward to it! :D

-Rob

Interesting 👍

·

Thanks!

-Rob

Thanks so much. I've been world on a campaign for a Cryptocurrency based game and was a bit disappointed that Steemit didn't have some sort of crowd funding option as of yet. It's great to know that your team has made fantastic strides in raising up projects the community might otherwise not see. Influencer marketing is definitely the way to go and I look forward to submitting my project shortly.

·

Thank you, I believe there are people willing to help. We just need to show the crowd that these projects exist and how the community can contribute, as well as what exactly they are contributing to.

Thanks for your input and support Jordan. I look forward to learning about your project :)

-Rob

Great writing and fantastic information. Very insightful. Thank you.

·

Thank you for that :)

-Rob

Muy interesante esta información, quiero subir mis ingresos en esta plataforma. Buen post. estaré pendiente.

-Rob

Crazy

Cool idea and presentation ! Thanks for that option for the future :) I hope i'll get 15k Followers or an inventor of a new cool idea :D

·

Thanks! Just keep at it man, it will happen with consistency and perseverance! :D

-Rob

·
·

Thanks I will do my best :) Best Success for you !

Wow I had no idea there was such thing as hyperfundit. I'm learning something new every hour..

·

Glad to hear this hour was hyperfundit :D

-Rob

·

Sweet Rob..

This sounds super cool! I think it's great Steemians are meeting up in person and networking together, I wonder, are these kinds of things ok to bring babies to? Lol, I'm still breastfeeding my baby boy so he comes everywhere with me still <3

·

Thanks! I guess it depends on the host, could always ask in advance?

-Rob

This is a very good info to get funding for steem projects! Thanks so much for letting us know.

·

Please @gvincentjosephm upvote me

·

Because I'm kind, I'll upvote you ( haha =D ). Please don't beg for upvotes. It won't help you in the long run.
