MANNKITCHEN MK9 is a large chef knife. In this episode, I had the opportunity to chat with Cleve Oines. He started on his crowdfunding journey the same way others have started - with a strong passion for a product, a burning drive to get it into the hands of people around the world, and an enthusiasm for how crowdfunding can help. We talk about the importance of building a product that solves problems, launching when you’re ready, dealing with internet trolls, and putting together a campaign on a shoestring budget.

Imagine if you could get the inside scoop so you knew exactly what your audience responds positively and negatively to!    Well, lucky for you - you don’t have to imagine it because it’s a true possibility! In this episode, Nalin will tell you about a method called “funnel hacking” and how that will be one of your greatest tools for a successful crowdfunding campaign.   Main Takeaways   [2;31]: What Is Funnel Hacking? Funnel hacking has to do with following those who came before you and an upside-down pyramid. Confused? We’ll break it down for you. [4:36]: Screen Shooting Others Campaigns See an ad that catches your attention? Save it for later so you know what works for promoting your project or product. [7:11]: Fall For The Click Bait Of Other Campaigns   Usually, we try not to fall victim to click-bait but this time we say - click away! [8:52]: Get On Their Email List  The best way to see what people are doing is to literally be apart of their team. By getting on other campaign email lists you are basically getting the first-hand experience on what works and what doesn’t for your own campaign.  [10:25]: Follow Other’s Launch Watch a launch from the very start to the very end.

Do you have thousands of followers on various social media channels? Are you relying on those numbers to reassure you that you’ll have enough backers on launch day? Well, guess what!? That’s not entirely true. In fact, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.    Do you know what is actually influential in predicting the success of your campaign? Your email list. That’s right! Email is the number one way that people make decisions when it comes to supporting campaigns. Needless to say, it’s something every entrepreneur should take the time to seriously understand.    In this episode, Nalin focuses on the importance of emails and how you can actually use your emails to achieve your goals with your launch. Main Takeaways   [3:07]: Social Media Is NOT A Sales Channel  Thousands of followers on any social media channel doesn’t necessarily equal backers.  [4:24]: Difference Between Traffic Others Own And Traffic YOU Own The difference between the two is really critical for your launch and for everything else that you do for your product and for building your business in the long run.  [8:47]: Long-Term Effects of Collecting Emails Early On  Imagine the repercussions of having potential backer’s contact information when it comes to launching a new product. [12:06]: Using Email To Get Ambassadors  People buy products from people they know, love, and trust. [12:38]: Using Email To Get Reviews Tap into that readily accessible source to get shearable feedback. [13:35]: Using Email For A Referral Program Rewarding people for sharing your product is sure to have your product take off in no time. [16:03]: Emails Is Cake Just like mining for gold, emails aren’t the easiest to come by.   Resources From This Episode   Episode Two: Social Media Is Not A Sales Channel Crush Crowdfunding Website Connect with Nalin Leave a Review

One question Nalin often gets is- “How do you get complete strangers on the internet to back your project and give you money?” To that we say- great question!   It’s one thing to get people who know and love you to back your projects, but getting complete strangers from the internet? That’s a totally different thing altogether. What’s even stranger is that somehow it’s those people who we don’t even know that we want to win over more than those we are closest to.    In this episode, we go over four different reasons why internet strangers will choose to support your campaign. By knowing these four reasons you will be able to set yourself up with a campaign that will have people believing in you as a business and entrepreneur.    Main Takeaways   [0:40]: Why Strangers Are Better Than Family  How is it that we get more satisfaction from complete strangers backing our projects then our own friends and family?  [2:11]: 1- Social Proof How social proof can make someone rationalize why your project isn’t worth their time. [8:31]: 2- Reach Your Goal Early Everyone wants to support a winner. So, let’s talk about what that looks like. [11:16]: 3- Get Badges Of Honor  Visual representations of your trustworthiness and legitimacy will go a long way in your crowdfunding success.  [15:11]: 4- Testimonials Who better to tell you about a product then someone you trust and whose opinion you value!?

Especially when it comes to crowdfunding.    Did you know that there are actually agencies designed specifically for aiding people in crowdfunding?

You have to know your “why” to know your audience. If you can’t pin down exactly who your audience is - go back to the drawing board of why you created your product in the first place.   [10:22]: The Potatoe Peeler Example How does a potato peeler have anything to do with your audience? A lot actually!    [16:17]: Picking Your Audience Helps You Pick Their Influencers  People trust influencers, reviewers, or anyone who has sway in a certain industry.

Time plays a HUGE role in everyone’s lives. That means it’s kind of a super important tactic to think about and research before starting a crowdfunding campaign.

Does the thought of doing market research get you super excited?! If you answered “no,” you’re not alone. Market research isn’t the most enticing part of launching a product. In fact, it’s pretty dry. However! Market research is one of, if not the, most important aspects of a product launch. It’s not only the tool that will bring you the most potential for success, but it will also steer you away from wasting your money on crowdfunding ideas that have already been done and proven not to work.    In this episode, Nalin expounds on all the reasons market research should be on the top of your priority list by explaining her four core aspects of market research.    Keep scrolling for a further breakdown of the podcast and helpful links. [2:05]: How Sun Tzu Relates to Marketing Research  “....If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle...” [3:57]: Competitors and Market Research  Market research gives you an inside scoop on your competitors and gives you the insight you need to know what they did right and learn from what they did wrong. [6:57]: Why Nalin is Passionate About Market Research  Research gives you all the information you need to succeed by telling you what to do and what not to do. [7:50]: #1: Market Trends Looking at competitor's trends, market trends, seasonal trends, and more. Why all these things will lead you to your maximum potential.  [10:32]: #2: Positioning Yourself in the Market  This is how you label your product in the world and how your product sits in the mind of the backer.  [14:10]: #3: Pricing Your Product Adequately  Are you pricing in the right range for the product you’re offering?  [16:25]: #4: Marketing Visuals Visuals make or break a campaign due to the trust and credibility they bring to a product and its founder.   Visit the Crush Crowdfunding Website: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/ Connect with Nalin: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/contact/ Leave a Review: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/crush-crowdfunding-podcast/id1500732127  
Before you even begin asking people to back your campaign, you need to dive into understanding why people would choose to do so. Why would people give money to someone they don’t know for a product that may not even exist yet?! You need to get in the mind of the people who are going to, inevitably, help you achieve your dreams before you start asking things of them.   In this episode, Nalin explains five potential reasons why people choose to back projects. If you’re an entrepreneur you can’t afford not to listen to this one!    Keep scrolling for a further breakdown of the podcast and helpful links.   [1:39]: The “What” and “Why” This Podcast is Critical to Your Crowdfunding Campaign: The ability to see things from the perspective of the backer gives you leverage in your campaign to be seen as credible and increases the likelihood of people supporting you and your product.  [3:45]: WHY #1: The Excitement of a Cool, New Product: Some people are just excited to see cool, new, and awesome products on crowdfunding.  [8:13]: WHY #2: A Better Solution to the Problem: Maybe your product solves an existing problem better than another product already in the market.  [10:56]:  WHY #3: Friends & Family Support System: Some people back projects because a friend or family member is the one who created the product and they simply want to support them.   [14:29]:  WHY #4: The Art of Gift Giving: People love to give and receive gifts. Backing a new product and giving that as a gift not only helps a campaign but is also cool to give/receive in the future.  [16:12]: WHY #5: Being A Part of Something Bigger Than Themselves: Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Sometimes it’s that simple desire that makes people back on crowdfunding. The idea of being behind the start of something like Peloton or Oculus would be really amazing, wouldn’t it? That’s enough of a reason to drive people to campaigns sometimes. [17:17]:  The Importance of Sharing Your Entrepreneurial Story: The easiest thing you, the entrepreneur, can do is share your story. The rewards you reap from doing so is huge. This allows potential backers to connect with you and create a bond that makes them want to invest in your story. [18:06]: Recap: The Five Categories: Going over the five reasons people back crowdfunding one last time.    Visit the Crush Crowdfunding Website: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/ Connect with Nalin: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/contact/ Leave a Review: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/crush-crowdfunding-podcast/id1500732127  
“Free Shipping” - It’s something you’ve probably seen advertised on a product before. You’ve probably even been the recipient of it. But, if you’re in the beginning phases of launching a product into the market is it really something you can feasibly offer? Maybe you’re wondering if it’s something you should offer?    Luckily, there is no right or wrong answer and you do have options! In this episode, Nalin goes in-depth about three different ways you can charge shipping during your campaign and discusses the pros and cons of each.    Keep scrolling for a further breakdown of the podcast and helpful links. [1:10]: What’s Up With Shipping?  Getting the conversation started on whether or not “free shipping” is really doable. [3:24]: ONE: Integrate the Shipping Cost to the Entire Cost of Production Add on the shipping cost after you look at all the production costs for making the actual product. That way the price of the product already includes the shipping cost. [5:58]: TWO: Subsidize Part of the Shipping  You decide to take money out of your own pocket to cover a certain amount of the shipping and the buyer pays the rest.  [7:29]: THREE: Make Backers Pay the Full Price of Shipping Have backers pay the full price of the shipping.  [9:15]: Additional Information to Take Into Account There are other things to think about: right custom taxes, duties, VAT, etc.  [10:05]: How to Inform the Backer of Shipping Costs Being upfront with your backers about the price of shipping is the best route you can take. It allows them to know exactly what they’re signing up for and, in turn, leads them to trust you because of your vulnerability.  [11:46]: Recap: Your Three Options Do you want to integrate the shipping cost into your entire product cost? Do you want to subsidize part of the shipping cost? Do you want your backers to pay the full shipping price?  Visit the Crush Crowdfunding Website: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/ Connect with Nalin: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/contact/ Leave a Review: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/crush-crowdfunding-podcast/id1500732127  
As Nalin was standing in line for a coffee one day, someone asked her the following question: "Is it easier to raise crowdfunding money/funds for a product with a high price point or a low price point?" It was such a good question that she has dedicated an entire episode to answering it. In this podcast, we will answer that question by going in-depth on the importance of defining your main unit number and educating your potential backers. We will also discuss both the benefits and potential weaknesses of both pricing methods. Keep scrolling for a further breakdown of the podcast and helpful links. [0:39]: The Big Question Is it easier to raise money for a product with a high price point or a low price point? Which one is better or does better on crowdfunding?  [1:39]: The Importance Behind the Number The amount of money you raise during crowdfunding is made up of two things: the first is the number of units actually sold. To find out the price at which you should set your product you must think about the number of products you want to produce. [2:22]: The Initial Difference Between a Low Price Point and a High Price Point This main difference between a low or high price point boils down to the number of units that you are going to need to produce. A higher price point means fewer backers. A lower price point means many backers.  [3:05]: Importance of Building your Community You can set your price at whatever you want, but you must take into consideration how many people are going to need to back you at that particular price point. It is of the utmost importance to calculate how many backers you are going to need and start building that community.  [3:21]: Example of a Low Price Point With a goal of $100,000 at $10 per unit - you will need 10,000 backers. [4:17]: Example of a High Price Point With a goal of $100,000 at $500 per unit - you will need 200 backers.  [4:50]: Comparing the Two Pricing Options  Low price product means spending more time and effort to get people into your community (because you need a lot more of them). However, they may convert quicker because the cost doesn't set them back too much. Whereas, high price product means you don't have to get as many backers but you may have to work harder because that initial investment is pretty substantial. No matter what price point you're at - you need to show the value of your product and clearly explain why people should want to back you. [7:42]: Importance of Educating Your Audience  The second thing that affects the amount of money you raise on crowdfunding is educating your audience and building that community. This plays a part in explaining the value your product can have on people's lives and is crucial in getting their money to back you. [8:03]: The Answer to the Question I'd tell you but then where's the fun in that?! Listen to the podcast and find out!

Creating a product can stretch you in many ways. It reveals your potential and your passions but it can also expose you to some of your weaknesses. What if we told you it’s that entire process that will draw people to you and have them backing your product quicker than you anticipated?  In this podcast, Nalin goes over five topics that you can utilize as marketing content for your product during pre-launch. She dives into how you can use what you already have as the content to get you started in connecting with your audience and future product-backers.    Keep scrolling for a further breakdown of the podcast and helpful links. [1:11 Why Being Online is Critical During Pre-Launch Let’s be honest - you can’t be knocking on people’s doors every single day and hope that translates to them going online to back you. Everything is online! Your product will, most likely, be marketed online. Therefore, you MUST be online. [3:04]: Be Open. Be Transparent. Be Authentic. People who follow crowdfunding are potential early adopters. They are the ones who are going to go on the journey with you, whether it be a few months to a few years. They want to invest in the company (that’s YOU) as much as the product. They want to see the good, the bad, and the ugly so you need to let them see it. [8:25 Content Idea #1 - Information About Your Product  What are the features of your product? What are the benefits? What does it do? Do you have a habit journal? What does that look like and entail? All these things and more are shareable content that allows your potential backers to connect themselves to your product.   [9:15]: Content Idea #2- User-Generated Content One of the best things to do with your product in the pre-launch phase is to beta test it. AKA- letting people play around with it. Getting your product into the hands of potential buyers will not only allow you to see areas of improvement or things you’ve done well but, will also be phenomenal content to share via quotes and video reactions.   [10:49]: Content Idea #3- Behind-The-Scenes Content  This is content you have already generated you only need to format it on social media platforms for others to see. This includes things such as prototypes, early drawings, or what your Wednesday afternoon in the office looks like. [11:52]: Content Idea #4- Founder’s Journey Another piece of content that you can share with your audience is simply - your journey! By getting out there and telling people of your story it allows them to want to root for you, cheer you on, and encourages them to want to help you get to your goal and cross that finish line. [13:22]: Content Idea #5- Related Content  Having original content from your own process is wonderful. Having content within your niche that supports why your product is something others need is the cherry on top. By showing people that your product is something that they could use in their life through other related topics that they resonate with will help them relate more to your project and want to back you even more.  [15:06]: Recapping What We’ve Discussed Now that we’ve gone in-depth of five different marketing content pre-launch, let’s recap it all.  Visit the Crush Crowdfunding Website: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/ Connect with Nalin: https://crushcrowdfunding.com/contact/ Leave a Review: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/crush-crowdfunding-podcast/id1500732127
