Social media is something which will help you build better and stronger bonds with all potential followers and backers and will drive them to your crowdfunding campaign immediately after you launch. You ought to make sure about consistency as regards the frequency with which you post on the social media daily as also when you post the ads. Initially, you could set a specific target for yourself, based on the time you can allocate to generating and scheduling relevant content on the social media. Thereafter, you could access your profiles on social media every week or so to study the analytics and alter the post timing to ensure maximum reach and visibility. Based on the results, you need to adjust your scheduled times and monitor analytics for relevant feedback and data.
Based on the page popularity with the audience, the major channels you could concentrate on are Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. These platforms operate in vastly different ways, and a presence on all of them, enables you to grab the immediate attention of their user bases.

With services such as ManyChat or Chatfuel, you could create programed bots that help get subscribers. These bots are automated codes of sequences interacting with subscribers the world over and respond to questions with pre-determined answers. Consequently, you target the audience using Facebook Messenger and set up a tailored sequence of messages, sent to any person as soon as they reach your page on Facebook. If they comment on posts or send a message, the Messenger bot is activated.
When endorsing a crowdfunding campaign using a Messenger bot, ensure that it does not sound like spam. Never overload subscribers with repetitive links to the campaign page. The sequences ought to be customized to generate various messages for distinctive actions. A first-time messenger can be welcomed with a GIF informing them about the campaign and why you are crowdfunding. This generates a campaign-related conversation without sounding pedantic or robotic.The pre-launch stage is critical for any campaign and if you manage to generate adequate buzz before launch, you may convert potential leads into patrons within the first two days after the launch.
