The answer to this question should be yes. I’ll tell you why. Let’s say you need $10,000 to get your business or nonprofit off the ground. Things are difficult all over so you may not have the funds. You’d love to get an investor, but you do not have the connections. Even if you do, you may have to give up more of your business than you’d like.
Here’s an idea. How about asking your friends and family for financial help. I know what you’re thinking – that’s an absolute no, no! But, what if I can show you how to get friends and family to help you fund your venture without it being a financial burden on them? Intrigued? Well, take a look at this post on YouHelp.com – “Advantages to Crowdfunding with a Coach in 2021.”
Crowdfunding with a coach
YouHelp.com recently created a crowdfunding with a coach platform. For as little as $4.00 per day, you can get the help of an expert to guide you through your crowdfunding goals. These coaches will:
- Keep you up-to-date with what works best in the crowdfunding industry.
- Help you build and manage a winning fundraising team.
- Mentor you and your entire team.
- Show you how to create a compelling fundraising page.
- Help find your untapped resources.
- Model engaging content for your social media channels
- Show you how to offer perks for donations.
- Help you develop and implement a fundraising strategy.
Getting this kind of help will set you up for success. Not convinced? Let’s do the math:
Fundraising goal: $10,000
Weekly coaching: $28 (or $4 per day ) for 3 weeks = $84
PayPal or Wepay processing fees (for nonprofit): 2.2% plus 30 cents per transaction.
Total = $9,696
Now, Let’s compare that to getting a small business loan:
Fundraising goal: $10,000
Loan application/Processing fee: $200
Monthly Interest rate: 4%
Total = $9,400
Let’s further compare that to funding your nonprofit without the help of a coach. You spend an average of 100 hours trying to reach potential donors. That time spent is valued at a minimum of $10. per hour – That’s $1,000!
With as little as $4 per day, you will be guided by a coach that is an expert in crowdfunding. They will help you with your YouHelp Crowdfunding campaign. You will get individual weekly fundraising coaching sessions.
Choosing your Coach
When choosing a YouHelp crowdfunding coach, look carefully at the coach’s credentials. Choose the coach who will be most beneficial to your organization. Think about the areas where you need the most help and choose accordingly. For example, if your organization will benefit from boosting its social media reach, choose a crowdfunding coach that is an expert in social media marketing.
