1. Set Aside Enough Time

Campaigns can be very short (as short as a day!) or stretch out over two or three months, but fundedflow, Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms suggests that 30-90 days is the perfect length for a campaign.

That said, for a considerably-sized campaign of $30,000 and above, you might want to plan to spend at least one month ahead of time preparing. Then, once the campaign begins, set aside four to five hours a day to run and manage it. The biggest mistake you could make is to go live expecting money to pour in on its own. Fundraising takes time, and effort to make it work.

1 Put in the Required Hours
Common failure of crowdfunding campaigns is that project creators often don't realize the intense amount of work required throughout the campaign to make it successful. You will be talking, emailing, pitching, tweeting and posting all day, every day. If managing your crowdfunding campaign doesn't become your full-time job throughout the campaign, then its odds of success decrease dramatically.
