It’s vital to work through important details BEFORE your crowdfunding campaign goes live and you launch your new project. It can be easy to think that all you need to do is setup your project page, click publish and you can sit back to watch the pledges roll in. However, this just isn’t the case… Thinking through, planning and preparing all aspects of your crowdfunding campaign in advance ensures that your launch (and your project) goes as smoothly and successfully as possible – and that your project is the best it can be before you unveil it to the world!

Here’s an on-going collection I’ve been making of useful project checklists to use when preparing your crowdfunding campaigns & projects. If you find any other crowdfunding checklists, please leave a link in the comments or tweet me at @RachelDobbs1 & I’ll add them to the post.
