How to get Influencers for your Crowdfunding Campaign

One of the most crucial aspects of crowdfunding campaign promotion is the blogger and influencer outreach. To get those already popular social media experts to like or share your project or even invest in it personally is not an easy task. But once done, it’s definitely going to bring you an extra batch of traffic. Word-of-mouth marketing has always been of great importance in any campaign and if you know how to get hold of bloggers and influencers, you can expect to enhance the social outreach of your campaign that way.

By using platforms like Klout and Krowdster, you can easily come across influencers at one go. While Klout gives your proper analysis of the followers in your profile who can be influencers (anyone with Klout Score above 60 can fall under this category), Krowdster gives you a backer directory to refer. It would be wise enough to invest in such platforms if you have a certain budget in hand. 

Here are some of the most popular bloggers and influencers on Twitter you can have a look at. Try to grab their attention by promoting your campaign to them.
