You’re feeling like a rockstar, the weight is lifted off your shoulders and it’s time to get off the emotional rollercoaster. But there’s still a lot you can do to inspire further support and ensure every pledge goes through.
If you had extra funds how could you use them? Try to inspire pledging beyond the initial goal by setting a ‘Stretch Goal’. Once you hit your target, add a stretch target in your campaign editor. If possible, try and come up with a use for the extra funds that brings more value to all the current supporters, this will incentivize them to ask their friends to pledge.
Approach the press again. Your campaign gained enough popularity that it hit its target! Some of your contacts may now consider this ‘newsworthy’.
