From the Shopify Blog, Dan Wang writes on e-commerce and selling online at Shopify, the world’s largest online e-commerce platform. It his latest post, he lays out 13 DIY Tools for a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign. The list is compiled straight from a veteran of successful Kickstarter campaigns, Noah Dentzel of NOMAD who brought you the Chargecard and the Chargkey, both crowdfunded campaigns that exceeded their targeted funding by large percentages. KeyShot is among the list of tools that are must haves for any crowdfunded endeavor.
The list includes software, tech and resources to make the product design promotion, production and fulfillment process less painful. The list of 13 tools include: BackerKit, Printful, iMovie, Buffer Social app, ShipWire, ShipStation, Kickstand, Digital Tutors, Cision, KeyShot, Arcspin, GIMP and a Sony Microphone for video recording. All part of an Ultimate Guide to Crowdfunding Shopify has planned for later.
Noah learned a lot the second time around. “It took one-tenth of the effort of our first campaign, in part because of the software that we used,” he said in an interview with Shopify… KeyShot is an easy-to-use and powerful way to create renderings of your products. Make it 3D, create an animation, or turn your pictures photorealistic.
