As mentioned in our last post, Kapipal is preparing to unveil a brand new website that has a ton of new features. Although our current (but soon to be old!) site functions quite well, we at Kapipal pride ourselves on being and becoming our best version possible, so “quite well” just wasn’t good enough for us!
We’ve spent the last few months working internally to figure out ways to enhance our site and improve the crowdfunding experience for both campaign creators and contributors. Here is a quick overview of some of the changes and improvements.
One of the most exciting things about our new site is the new look. We have improved aesthetics so that the site is more visually appealing, and we’ve also added an awesome sidebar (it will be featured on the left-hand side of the screen) which, once clicked, slides open to unveil an extensive menu for site navigation.
We also improved our Home page by inserting quick navigation images making it easy for site users to get exactly where they need to go!
We our constantly looking for ways to enhance our user experience, so look for more improvements along the way!
Find Projects More Easily
Another upgrade that we have made relates to how you can search for projects. Again, as mentioned above, things were working quite well on our old site. But we really felt that we could improve the search process so users could find projects more easily. So we implemented a new option of searching by category. We are also looking into search boxes and location-based searches (so you can find campaigns that are in or near your local community), so look for those in the coming months as well!
We Help You Succeed
Kapipal’s team is ever expanding, and with the new year, we wanted to further commit to our mission of personally helping crowdfunding creators by designating team members to personally reach out to campaign creators. So moving forward, look to see Kapipal team members reaching out if your campaign is struggling, or even simply reaching out to say hi and letting you know we are there if you have any questions.
We are just putting on the finishing touches on the new site, so expect it to be unveiled very soon!
Until then, keep creating and giving and helping yourself and our world! If you have any questions, remember you can always contact us for personal assistance! We would love to help with your campaign in any way possible, so don’t be shy!
Have a great and inspired rest of the day!
Since working at Kapipal, I have seen many crowdfunding projects -- charities, hobbies, startup ideas, music albums, community efforts, gifts, etc. It is amazing to see so many innovative fundraising campaigns.
Many people use the crowdfunding approach to realize their dreams! But the power of crowdfunding does not stop here. The crowdfunding process has helped many people in a short period of time to improve their product ideas, create branding, improve marketing, as well as generate market demand intensively.
A typical example is a band raising money for their next album before production. The audience and fans get a flavor of the new album through the campaign introduction, audio or video. It helps the band to generate market interests, get early feedback from their fans, as well as increase the fans' eagerness to get the album produced by crowdfunding contribution. In a way, the band has already tested the market and created product awareness and demand before completing and shipping out their final product.
This is a very good way to exercise the lean development method for testing out the idea with the launch, learn and adapt process. Even with every social marketing promotion round, it follows the same pattern: launch-learn-adapt to understand what works, what doesn't, and how to improve the promotion to get to the next level. It is a journey of continuous learning. When the crowdfunding campaign finishes, the fundraiser not only has more experience in running a crowdfunding campaign, but surely also much more knowledge on social media marketing and lean product development.
If you want to start a crowdfunding campaign for your dream, our Kapipal Team would be happy to support you on your journey!
