HOW CAN INDIEGOGO HELP YOU LAUNCH YOUR BUSINESS?
Indiegogo is a crowdfunding platform set up to support opensource innovations in different areas. The areas could be in science, technology, art or any field of your choice. The platform also helps innovators with the intention of establishing business to bring their dream to reality. Here's how it works;
The first and probably the most important aspect in establishing a business is funding. To start a business, you first and foremost need to have a dream, in form of an idea or a concept that you believe in, then what comes nect is the need for financing. The important of finance cannot be understated and Indiegogo has created a package that helps Entrepreneurs with great ideas bring their plan to reality. Just like every other package available on the platform, the funding of a business plan will also be crowd sourced. The funds provided could either be to put your business through feasibility tests to see if it will work out, to fund the idea and start it up or to support you in the business as time goes on. Getting this opportuinty is as easy as Starting a campaign.
REACH A BROAD NETWORK
When the business or project is underway, the next step is expanding your reach. Having a great idea and a quality business plan is good but if no one hears about it, you're better off not even doing the business all together.
People are in such a hurry to launch their product or business that they seldom look at marketing from a bird's eye view and they don't create a systematic plan. Dave Ramsey
