Promoting your crowdfunding project, whether it’s Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or another platform, is a must, particularly within the first 7 days of launching your campaign. Check out our list below for some free ways to do this and leave a comment if we’ve left any out!

1. Reddit


Reddit is a user-generated news and entertainment website, or what is referred to as a “social bookmarking website.” Users can submit content, upvote it, and comment on articles/links. The community is divided into subreddits, which are essentially micro-communities surrounding topics like Kickstarter, Crowdfunding, Gaming, Music, and more.

On CrowdCrux, I wrote about how a reader harnessed the power of Reddit to attract $13,000+ in Kickstarter pledges. As with all communities, constant self-promotion is frowned upon, so it’s best to get involved early on in the subreddits most related to your campaign and mix in a bit of self-promotion every now and then.

2. Submit a Free Press Release

There are a lot of website online where you can submit a free press release for your project or news update. You can submit a free press release directly to CrowdfundingPR or you can use one of these free press release distribution sites.

Benefits of doing a free press release include:

  • – Well formatted press release link that you can send to journalists.
  • – Index in major search engines like google and yahoo for keywords related to your company and campaign.
  • – Exposure to a larger audience via the website’s traffic.

While by no means a silver bullet, it’s a quick and easy avenue to promote your project.

3. KickstarterForum’s “Get Tweeted Out” Promotion

kickstarterforum is running a promotion for a free tweet on @crowdcrux’s twitter account. They also offer a VIP program that is free to join and comes with extra campaign promotion.

As with all forums and online communities, it’s important to take advantage of forum signatures (can include a banner advertisement) and avatars to maximise the chance that other users check out your project.

4. CrowdfundingForum’s “VIP” Program


CrowdfundingForum recently launched a free VIP program (no longer open to new members) to help engage the community and spur discussion. In exchange for participating on the forum, creators have the opportunity to have their link on the forum sidebar, be shared on social media, and conduct an interview on the forum regarding their project or startup. The forum is also running a twitter promotion to be tweeted out (no longer active).

5. Pinterest

Pinterest is a much overlooked social media site to promote a crowdfunding campaign. The key with Pinterest is to start or join an existing board related to your category. For example, if you are working on a new fashion accessory for women, you would seek to join a board related to fashion, or use the appropriate hashtags that others members are using. The board below has almost 1 million followers and has pins that are consistently re-pinned.

6. Social Media Websites & Blogs

We’ve already compiled an extensive list of blogs related to crowdfunding and have shown you how you can discover bloggers in your niche. In addition to these lists, I recommend checking out this compilation of top social media sites.

Creating social media profiles for your business will pay dividends years down the road. You can also customize the header and cover images to promote your campaign like the example below from the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter campaign.

reading rainbow twitter

Blogger and Journalist outreach is a bit more tricky than promoting your project on social media. When you’re marketing via a social network (ex. twitter), there are tools that you can use to track when people are clicking on your links or which postings are being shared most, like Buffer or Hootsuite.

It’s more difficult to gauge the effectiveness of your PR outreach. I recommend starting by creating a list of the publications you want to get on, then creating a separate lists of the journalists that work at those publications that are writing about topics similar to your story or product.

You can start to create this list by researching the publications that similar crowdfunding projects have gotten into. Once you have your list together, you need to create an angle for your story and nail down what is unique about your company and product.

The angle should take into account the publication’s audience and the topics that the journalist tends to write about. Think of this like sending out a resume. Your resume (or pitch in this case) should be tailored for each person you are sending it to emphasize what they will care about most.

When you send the email to a journalist, keep it short and to the point, with a eye-catching subject line. The journalist can then reference your longer version press release if they want to find out more information about your company. For more tips, see Six Ways To Get Your Crowdfunding Campaign On A Reporter’s Radar (written by a reporter).

7. BuzzFeed

Finally, BuzzFeed is another often overlooked platform to promote your crowdfunding project for free. In the recent record-breaking Coolest Cooler Kickstarter campaign, BuzzFeed was one of the publication that helped spread the campaign across Facebook.

There have also been members from KickstarterForum who have used BuzzFeed to promote their Kickstarter. Check out their campaign below and the BuzzFeed article they wrote.

To submit content to BuzzFeed, you must first register and then create a post on your user dashboard.


There are a lot of free ways that you can promote your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, GoFundMe, or other type of crowdfunding project. If you have any questions or thoughts, leave a comment on this artilce!

  • Informative, great practical info! What if we aren’t sure which category we should list our campaign in? I have an educational site I would like to expand, I would like to add a fun video web series, but I also need help with funding for equipment and business fees, etc. any advice? Should I list in educational, web series or art? Thanks!

    • crowdfundingpr

      I think a good place to start would be to browse those categories and see if there are any other educational sites listed. Personally, I would place it under educational or web series rather than art.

      • Thanks for the quick reply, this helps since at this point I’m doing all of the work, and all advice is greatly appreciated.

    I’ve been trying to push on Reddit and Imgur to no avail. 🙁 I’ve put out several press releases ( ), have a dedicated FB page and a landing page, posted on Craigslist, and have sent lots of emails, several tweets (though I only have 5 followers, but a few have been re-tweeted), and a few requests to bloggers. He’s on the front page of our local paper with a two page article. I’ll try Pinterest and Buzzfeed, and thank you for your “free tweet” as well! 😀 Again, thanks for the encouragement and support!

    No new updates as of today…….

    I normally don’t do this but under the circumstances, I find the need to. I moved into my new apartment on June. 19 2015. Upon moving into my apartment there was an elderly person who went missing due to illness. In the meantime, my trucked was parked without entry from June 19 to thursday June 25. Several agencies and volunteers searched daily for this elderly man. Long story short, Thursday June 25 I saw police lights outside my window. When I looked out to see what was going on my truck and several other cars was part of a crime scene. I noticed the police officer flashing the light in my truck and immediately went outside to see what was going on. After verifying that it was my truck I was then told there was a dead body inside. This situation is so unreal. My truck was towed with body inside. It has not been confirmed the identity of the deceased but we all have an idea. I feel so numb and sadden by the turn of events that have taken place at my new residence. I am trying to sort out why this happened as it did but I have no answers. I know God is going to work this out but there is no getting over this one. I am asking for donations to help me get another car and to help the family of the deceased person that was found dead in my vehicle with their expenses during their time of loss.

    Thank you for caring. Please pray for the family of the deceased that God will keep them strong in their time of need.

  • Concerned friend

    but we can all help each other by posting each others links on each others social media page. You post mine on yours, and Ill post yours on mine. Help spread the word to more people, have a better chance!!

    Heres my cause and why:

    a friend of mine, her 4 children ages 4-11, and her boyfriend and his 2 kids ages 8 and 10 will be homeless in 5 days, unless they get $900 by Sunday and $600 on the first, I HAVE to help them. A friend of hers started a gofundme page for them, and I am trying to spread the word, they both work full time jobs and have no babysitter, or family to help them and the other 2 biological parents do not help them at all. All they do is work, eat, sleep and be with those kids. They just need a helping hand or two right now. If any of you could either donate, or at least share the link on your page it would help so much.

    The concept behind this is, if enough people could donate a small amount of money to help the family go on a vacation any where in the world. If 10,000 people would donate $.50 we could achieve a trend for each person to take a vacation at any time, and it only takes $.50 a person. Most of us can’t afford the full price of a vacation, but $.50 per day is in everybody’s budget. Join me in starting a new trend in vacationing.

  • A useful article indeed.

    The problem with struggling crowdfunding campaigns is that whoever is running them either dislikes or is bad at marketing. There are very few tools out there that will actually expose your campaign to new users without you turning into a PR person yourself. – is one of the exceptions. It allows you to stay focused on your crowdfunding venture, while they promote it.

    I am The Teaspoon Bakery based in Tucson, AZ as a home baker. I specialize in custom baked goods for all occassions. I believe in all natural and healthy ingredients, and while ingredients like sugar may not be considered “healthy”, I strive to produce not only a cake that is yummy and as healthy as it can be by not using things like trans fats and artificial preservatives, but also offer organic and gluten free options. I also want to offer a lot of vegan choices in the near future! (I just have to perfect the recipes …grumble grumble)

    Please tell all your friends too! You know they want some! Donation perks are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!
    And remember, never trust a skinny baker 😉

  • Me

    Some of these crowdfunding sites don’t work unless you have rich friends. I have created a crowdfunding project and not one person I know or even a stranger has helped but yet I see so many people support someones party, or computer, or camera. I had to buy all that stuff. Read this please.

    • Laura R Gullett

      I know exactly how you feel. People are asking for trips and all kinds of stuff with a fund amount deposited right there on the page. I don’t know how they do it. I’m not a writer or political marketer. I guess they have rich friends. I’m about to be homeless and even trying to sell stuff, not just asking for any handout alone, and still only two people who know me gave a little. I found this site because of needing my campaign to be seen. Winter is cold and the rescued pets and I need to survive while I work on my imperfections and fix my life back to how it should be. I’m college educated, have pride and dignity. Setting up such a page is humiliating which means I would not do it unless I really had to. I’m not going anywhere either. I will always be online, therefore; I have to keep all respects to anyone who donates in order of course. I would do that anyway being that is the type of person that I am, but to strangers out there it is an extra assurance of you knowing my respect and appreciation is there to any person who donates. I will even report all donations on my taxes, but still one 2 have donated, no matter how vulnerable and honest I am about everything.

  • Chris Justice

    My name is Chris Justice. I am a double-major in Music Education and English Education at a university in Tennessee and will soon be pursuing a masters degree in clarinet performance. I do not have much money at my disposal. I am a hard-working and diligent student and musician, but I could not afford my education if it were not for scholarships and grants. I am in desperate need of a professional clarinet to pursue my passion and further my educational career in music. I have saved every cent possible for the past year, but it just isn’t enough. I teach clarinet and various band camps throughout the year. Teaching and clarinet are my passions, and I want to continue to grow in these fields. Any amount would be extremely and graciously appreciated. If anyone would like more information, please feel free to contact me.

    Ive been seeing a lot people posting their gofundme and kickstarter links on this thread.

    If you have a website of your own you can actually work on crowdfunding your own projects using a mere simple widget.

    I do love gofundme and kickstarter but the rates they have are just unbelievable at times(this is an opinion)

    Anyway Im hoping each one of you gets the funding they need. Cheers!

    Maybe ya won’t get to see this but what do I have to loose, possibilities are endless, I will be attending to Abilene Christian University this 2016 fall. I’m trying to get help from others to attend college to become a labor and delivery travel missionary nurse. So that I can travel to other countries or places to lend a helping hand. I am in need of help financially and my family and I can’t afford what the school is wanting. Yes, i completed my fafsa and yet the billing is still pricey and yes i filled as many as scholarships applications as i could yet i got none. If I can just get some help, it will help me pursue my dreams. And make wonders to my family. Thank you.

    a police officer and well she was on her way to the academy when
    suddenly she got hit buy another car going at 112 Mph. My mom’s car

    I would like to share my gofundme page
    I’m a new mom and have been having a couple of really bad years. I’m in a family shelter now and is kind of hard to complete all the tasks they want you to. Go to offices throughout all new York when I don’t have an income so I’m barely making it work. And also the task of finding a job of at least 35 hours that makes me the income they want me to achieve your be able to receive the help and get out of the system. My goal is to put my paperwork in order so that way finding a job that pays a little more than the minimum is possible for me. Pay taxes and try to get out of the system as fast as I can. All I want is a better life for my family and not be struggling from penny to penny. I would really appreciate any help. From the bottom of my heart. Thanks.

    Fantastic list, there are a lot of goodies in here. Another one to add is which is basically a free promotion on an email newsletter which works great, and its free so 🙂

  • Paula Harmon

    Hoping people will share…my circle of friends are pretty small, as is family, and I have found it true, that small circles are unfortunately quite a hindrance to this sort of endeavor. We’ve had a pretty hard go of it the last few years, as I am sure many have, hence the abundance of funding campaigns and sites. We are still struggling to rectify our situation on our own, but at this point need to try whatever we can for the sake of our little girl…

  • Mona Smith

    I’m asking if anyone could donate to my go fund me campaign. I have been living with Multiple sclerosis for 10 years and it has completely took a toll on my life. I would greatly appreciate if anyone could help out. thank you in advance. Here’s the link

  • Mona Smith

    hello everyone, I’m writing you because i would like to share my story. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis also known as MS. MS is a neurological disorder which causes my body to attack itself by destroying the myelin sheath ( the covering of the nerves), which can cause damage to the nerves, also causes poor impulses/lack of nerve impulses. I have been living with MS for 10 years, my life hasn’t been the same since then. I went from being active with my family and friends, I was just a person that was always full of energy; now somedays i can’t even get out the bed because of my increased fatigue and at times muscle weakness. I had a career as a nurse which I just simply loved, I really enjoyed caring for people. October of 2015 this all changed, I exhibited a relapse with my MS which caused me to go into exacerbation and this time it wasn’t good. This attack caused me to have to use a walker. I went from caring for people to now I had to have someone care for me. I asked God “why me!” what did i do to deserve this? with the grace of God by February of 2016 I regained my ability to walk again but i was left with some weakness and severe pain to my neck and back due to the new growth that was observed on my brain and spine. I had to quit my career as a nurse because of my disability. I applied for for SSDI which I was denied. My husband and I are out of options, we are asking if the club could pray for our family. My husband and I is asking if you could please share our campaign page. this would mean so much to us. Thank you again for your time may God bless everyone. please follow the link:

  • Scott Remaley

    My name is Scott Remaley. I would love to share my story with you.I was finally diagnosed with major depression between Chapel Hill, NC and Stroudsburg, PA. I also sought help with spending roughly 2 yrs in Newburgh, NY. Currently, I am in Chapel Hill getting treatment from UNC-Chapel Hill which has the best doctors around. I came to Chapel Hill with few resources and little income. I found myself struggling on the streets battling an appeals case with SSI. I have a lawyer working on my appeals case. I am going to court in October but the judge will not make a ruling until a month or two after the court date. I don’t have much of a support system here in Chapel Hill. The shelters here are so full that it causes people to sleep on the streets months at a time. It’s difficult to get in the shelter, and I have difficulty being around people. There are no other housing resources for me at this time. I attend a great church every Sunday and I feel I came to the right place to start a new life. I am raising money so I can have start my new life.

    For more on this story and to make a donation in any amount, Please go to my gofundme page . Please share with with family and friends as well.

    Hi everyone. I really need some help. I was a passenger in a car accident a few months ago and ended up with almost 6000 dollars in medical bills.

I need help paying medical bills.

  • David Eta

    My name is David Eta, I live in Cameroon. I’m a high school graduate. Since I was a kid, helping my community and making it a better place has been my number one priority. I have always wanted to fight against the environmental problems and other hazards that destroy my communtiy and other communities in Africa. I’m here at GoFundMe to plead with the world to help me in the realisation this dream.
    I always knew that, to make this happen I would need to get an advanced education. And, that’s one number on my mind now. The only problem is just most Africans it won’t be easy to afford that. I’m pleading with the world to help in anyway they can to help me afford this education, so I can help my community in the near future.
    The funds generate will be used to pay for the for the period I will be studying. This means so much to me because my community is my family, and doing this to make my community a better place is the best thing I can ever do. I will be very gratefu for what ever contribution who are able to make. Thanks as you donate and please help me share the word around thanks a lot and God bless you. My GoFundMe campaign link is

  • Aaron’s Kreative Arsenal
    Hello artist patron , my name is Aaron Ollero and I am a multi-talented artist. I draw comics, design,take photos,dance,do martial arts and write poetry. I am 28 and although I was born in the Philippines, I now live in Wailuku, Maui. My passion for art is growing daily, I first started drawing when I was a little 6 yr. old, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was my subject. I went to school and did the normal school things with the other kids such as marbles and milk covers, but I also kept drawing. Anime came out and I was hyped, I loved the art in anime so much it inspired me to come up with my own style of comic/anime. I want to introduce anime and comic art into the fine arts world one day, I may need help doing so. I have heard that comic and superheroes now have college course. It’s similar to what I want to do. In 2012 I also started taking photos. I want to one day do all kinds of arts and learn all kinds of skills so I was stoked to have found another medium. My photography subject will be of everything I see while I journey through Maui. I feel that some parts of life are unnoticed and these things I take pictures of. Photography made it’s way into my life through an Ex-girlfriend but I loved it so much that I want to keep on taking photos forever.

    My campaign is to help me keep learning and growing my art. I am an artist that needs exposure and want to make my mark in the world. Part of my campaign is to invite others with abilities into a creative company I am trying to start up called “Kreative Arsenal”. Anyone willing to donate financially or with their skills is invited to collaborate with me in my efforts. With your investments I can recruit others and also buy better equipment for me to create art with.

    Contributors will help me find all the missing pieces to help me start my journey. I am a local boy in Hawaii and haven’t had much time exploring the outer world. As with everything knowledge and experience about the world goes a long way. With your donations I would be able to fly to a destination that inspires me to create and grow as an individual. If the world was free I would definitely keep practicing my art, but it’s not and I need your help to sustain living and to explore the world. Through art I have found my spiritual calling, help me fullfill these goals.

    What We Need & What You Get

    I am in need of a camera and other art supplies. I also use the computer for digital art and would love to have an art specific computer equipped with a touch drawing tablet. The biggest contribution your donations would help me with is gaining experience and helping me see the world for inspirations. What you would get as a contributor would be access to my photos you can use as stock images. You would also be able to contribute ideas for Kreative Arsenal. As a contributer you would be able to give your ideas and take part in my Super Hero story.

    The Impact
    My project is valuable to the world because more people need to be intouch with their life callings. Life purpose calls people with many God given talents and I plan to bring them all together. If we could bring around a new age Rennaissance, man will have reached another pinnacle in human evolution. In the first Rennaissance man was able to develop their abilities at a much more progressive and excellerated rate. I want to start an art and spirituality revolution.

    Risks & Challenges
    Some challenges that I might come across are not enough exposure and not enough insiprations. In order for me to overcome these obstacles I will update my content everyday for my viewers and ask them to spread the word. My plan to defeat these problems would be to get my community in Maui to get involved. I would also love to be able to travel the world and be insipired by the greats.

    Other Ways You Can Help
    You don’t need to donate to help out. please share my campaign with others on your social media sites and help get support for my art and Kreative Arsenal. Remember to use your social network share tools.
