    Hi there,

    Just looking for tip/tricks or services offered (PM me) on how to super-pump crowdfunding campaign.

    Natural and organic in relation to social media, I've got that part covered.

    I don't know if a crowdfunding page can be SEO optimized?

    I'm wondering if there's any nifty "non-organic" things I can do?

    SEO is not relevant for crowedfunding campaigns. If you want to successful crowdfund, it all depends on how much media coverage you can get for your launch.

    SEO is more long term strategy that doesn't work that way.

    Thanks, that's what I figured.
    I was thinking that pumping out a press release would get the link to the crowdfunding page out there some. I'm sure I'll do this, but I'm not counting on this to be too effective. This'll be good at getting the name of the product online though.

    But, yeah, I'm mostly thinking organic social media, probably some facebook ads.... and if there's any other ideas.

    Would buying views or likes on the youtube video that explains the product do anything?

    What about Reddit?

    Depends on the nature of the product. Tech Products do well on reddit, fashion meaning whole outfits or home decoration does well on pinterest, accesoires like bags, shoes works on Twitter, question of your price policy.

    Facebook isn't buyers traffic, this is brand development, once you started your business.

    However, for crowedfunding you would typically need a community meaning a tribe willing to spend time, money and effort in developing your idea. This means, you would run a youtube campaign.

    Never sell people too early, if you do that, your conversion drops immensly.

    You have to create a YT solving a problem your audience actually has and at the end of the video, you offer them a free online course on your homepage for doing the stuff, whatever this is.

    When they have done the course and like it, you can get a lot out of them in support for your start-up.

    And yes, you can elevate the YT thing, by SEO measures, this means primarly buying social signals, embeds and link. This works pretty well. The moment you start buying views, you are rolling the dice and most probably YT will figure it out and block your video and/or channel.
