Now that your Fundable profile is built out, polished and submitted (high five!), it’s time to start thinking about next steps. Keep reading for some winning strategies for thoughtfully leveraging your friends and family to spread the word about your campaign.


1. Tell Your Story. Your network of friends, family, and fans will want to know exactly why you’re launching your campaign, and what you’re hoping to accomplish. Sharing the link to your Fundable profile is a great way for you to succinctly tell your story, and ask others to share it as well.


2. Prepare a Specific Ask. When emailing your friends and family, be sure to specifically ask for whatever it is that would help you most. Whether it’s sharing your page on their own social networks or backing you — let them know exactly how they can help you!
