How It Works

 

How It Works

It’s free to create a campaign on Fortua, there are no upfront costs. You keep 100% ownership of your work. No equity is exchanged on Fortua. Instead, you provide insights and rewards (aka perks) to your backers in exchange for support. And, if you are developing a campaign purely to raise funds for charity that’s free to create too!

Creating and running a campaign on Fortua is easy - just follow these five simple steps:

Step 1: Define your pursuit or project

Be sure your pursuit or project has a clear goal, choose your campaign type (keep-it-all or all-or-nothing), and be prepared to describe who you are, your pursuit or project’s purpose, your funding goal, any non-monetary commitments of support you are requesting, the type of insights you plan to share with your backers, and your rewards for backers (and if your campaign is purely focused on raising funds for charity then it does not necessarily need to include rewards).

Step 2: Sign up with Fortua (it's free) and create your campaign page

Creating a campaign on Fortua is free, easy, and fun, and we are here to help!

Step 3: Get the word out and make it happen

Get the word out and make it happen. Passion and persistence will get you to your funding goal and will also help you secure any non-monetary commitments of support that you've requested. Your backers will be excited to be part of your journey and you will be amazed with the support you get!

Step 4: Take on your pursuit or project and share your journey with your backers

When it’s time to take on your pursuit or project, engage your backers and share your experiences and insights along the way. Fortua’s platform makes it easy to keep your backers up-to-date with written, photo, and video updates, and you can also update backers with other social media platforms (e.g. Twitter, Instagram, Strava etc.) that you like to use!

Step 5: Complete your pursuit or project and send your backers their rewards

Send your backers their rewards (if applicable to your campaign), and be sure to thank your backers for their support. You may also want to hold a post-pursuit or post-project Q&A session or share a summary video vignette of your experience. Whatever you do, be grateful, and your backers will be happy that they shared in your journey!
