Crowdfunding Vector

Congratulations, you’ve decided to dive into the world of crowdfunding!

Before you take the plunge, consider creating a companion website to enhance your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdfunding campaign. The following must-haves will ensure your project gets off to a great start with a home for telling your story to potential backers, journalists, and other interested parties.

1.  Domain Name
If you don’t have a domain name, that’s the first place to start. The best option is to match your domain name to your company, product, or project. Create a memorable domain name by making sure it’s short, easy to spell, and complementary to your brand. A custom domain name will give your website a professional address that’s easier for customers and backers to remember. Plus, it will provide extra real estate for your project in search engines.

Start from the ground up by choosing from hundreds of images, textures and colors for your site background. Next, browse dozens of web safe fonts for your header, footer, sidebar and copy. You can then customize the color of the font in each of these locations. This is a great way to achieve a look that really reflects what your website is about.
