New Capabilities with Fund My Project 2.0

What Is A Koji?

A Koji is a type of interactive media that can help you sell your products, downloads, services or premium content. To create a Koji, simply select a template and customize before sharing the unique URL on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, WhatsApp, or anywhere else!

Get Started With Fund My Project 2.0

Setting up Fund My Project 2.0 for your social media is easy, and there are a few choices you’ll need to make depending on the type of experience you want to create with your fans.

After you add the Koji, these are the steps you’ll need to follow to set it up.

1. Create your fundraiser

To set up your fundraiser, you’ll need to add at least one cover image and a fundraiser title. You can also provide a description for your fans, so they know what you are raising money for and how you will use it after reaching your goal. Change the call-to-action button background and text color to your preferences.

2. Set up your goals

This is pretty straightforward, but try to set an amount that will be both helpful and necessary for your project as well as reasonable and reachable for your audience. You can also opt to offer rewards to supporters of your project, including physical items or special experiences. The Koji also allows you to collect and download shipping addresses.

3. Publish and start promoting

After you’ve filled out all the required information, tap “Next” and “Publish.” Now you’re ready to share your fundraiser with the world and hopefully get the funds to turn your biggest ideas into a reality.
