Our Full Service Support
Designed to be completed in less than 12 weeks, our project management is split into three distinct phases to prepare you for a successful funding campaign. We speak to clients as regularly as is needed and every client is assigned a UK-based point of contact for the duration of our relationship. Please see below a very simplified overview of how we will support you. If you feel you have already covered parts of what is outlined below and we agree that it is not sensible to go over those things again, we can adapt the programme to meet your specific needs.
Phase 1 - Investor Deck Repurposing & Crowd Planning
An initial workshop with one of our UK-based team of experts, to introduce the project and answer any questions you have about this phase. During this call, we'll discuss your fundraising strategy and decide on a sensible timeline for your campaign. We'll talk about your specific goals and begin to form ideas for engaging your crowd.
We'll provide templates for preparing your investor presentation and give you access to example presentations from previous clients.
We'll support you with the creation of your investor presentation, which you will use to begin to raise investment with and which will eventually be attached to your campaign as a supporting document for investors, including providing templates and multiple reviews.
We'll support with preparing your crowdfunding mailing list and provide coaching as to how to begin engaging this list.
We'll provide round the clock support to answer any questions that you may have.
Phase 2 - Campaign Preparation & Communications
This phase kicks off with a 90 minute one to one marketing and communications workshop focused around how and when to talk to your crowd, how to market your campaign in the lead-up and how to move through your chosen platform's processes.
Support for preparing your financial promotion including providing the template for drafting and multiple reviews
Support for scripting your video and providing access to highly recommended videography partners.
Support for preparing your campaign marketing plan to ensure that you have a clear strategy for getting the most out of multiple marketing channels.
Continued round the clock support to answer any questions that you may have.
Phase 3 - Preparation For Launch
We start this phase with a 60 minute, one to one ‘preparation for launch’ workshop focused on refining your marketing efforts and preparing to launch and market your live campaign. We will also review progress and campaign strategy to make sure your chance of success is high, and you have defined goals to reach before you launch.
Support for creating the necessary marketing and communication materials needed to run your campaign
General support for moving through the process with your crowdfunding platform of choice.
