Creating a Travel Crowdfunding Campaign That People Want to Support

In recent years, more and more entrepreneurs have turned to alternate funding. One of the biggest methods of alternate funding is crowdfunding — a process that enables people to raise money through the internet, allowing them to reach much larger audiences than ever before. Its success as a funding method is shown in the numbers: in 2014 alone, approximately $16 billion was crowdfunded. Since then, the numbers have only gone up.

It’s important to effectively plan and prepare your crowdfunding campaign, so that it is one that people actually want to support. Here are some tips on how to do just that.
