In an industry that has an average failure rate of over 80%, our 4-Phase Approach will give you THE best chance of success.

 

Our 4 Phased Approach to Crowdfunding

The LaunchPad Agency provides the 360-degrees of services needed to successfully run a crowdfunding campaign. Our fully managed campaigns feature a strategic, 4-phased approach starting with messaging development and material preparation, then moving into your social capital build via our Blast-Off Pre-Marketing Program, and capping it off with a strategically integrated campaign launch program designed to exceed your funding goals. Once the dust settles and you are successfully funded, we provide all the post-campaign services needed to go-to-market.

Phase 1 (30 days) is our preparatory period in which we will help you develop a strategic campaign launch plan, define messages for target audiences and help guide the development of the needed campaign materials that will resonate with target audiences and pique media interest.

  • Campaign preparation and planning
  • Campaign messaging and storyline
  • Campaign page development
  • Rewards and copywriting
  • Video scripting and production
  • Press release and PR materials development

Phase 2 (30 days) is where we will build your social capital using our proprietary Blast-Off Pre-Marketing Program. This is an innovative, turnkey, fully integrated viral marketing solution designed to rapidly grow highly targeted email leads, drive awareness, fuel social buzz and mobilize an army of engaged fans that converts at a great ROI.

  • Fully integrated, turnkey solution
  • Landing page development
  • Creative ad content
  • Highly targeted advertising to deliver best ROI
  • Real-time campaign optimization
  • Viral brand advocacy - powered by Queue
  • Contests and gamification
  • Community management and marketing
  • Campaign promotion through our Hot-NewTech community, including our massive email database and vibrant social channels

The #1 reason Crowdfunding Campaigns fail is LACK OF SOCIAL CAPITAL

Statistics have shown that failure to raise 30% of the Funding Goal in the first 2 days of a crowdfunding campaign results in a 65% failure rate. Our strategy is designed to achieve immediate funding momentum, enabling you to surpass the 30% mark within the needed time frame.

Phase 3 (30 days) We execute a strategically integrated plan of attack with PR, digital marketing, influencer marketing and social media activities all working together to give you the best chance to exceed your funding goals. We have the marketing experience, best media relationships and know what it takes to drive massive, relevant traffic to your campaign page. Our goal is YOUR success!

  • Campaign management
  • Aggressive PR program
  • Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaign advertising
  • Influencer marketing
  • Campaign promotion via our Hot-NewTech community
  • Backer community management
  • Ongoing campaign optimization
  • Reporting

Phase 4 (Post Funding) Now that you have successfully crowdfunded your project, what’s next? Many campaigners make the big mistake of focusing ONLY on production and nothing else. The LaunchPad Agency can help you take the next steps to successfully launch into the marketplace. We have the experience, knowledge and strategic partnerships to ensure you don’t become a startup statistic. Here are some of the post campaign services we offer:

  • Go-to-market strategy
  • Pre-sale / InDemand marketing and promotion
  • Retail sales channel development
  • eCommerce
  • Amazon marketing
  • User acquisition
  • Comprehensive launch campaigns
  • On-going PR and marketing activities
