Forewarned is forearmed, and if you're planning to dive into the pool of crowdfunding, it pays to lay the groundwork beforehand.
GoGetFunding has crunched the numbers on more than 12,000 crowdfunding projects to see what makes a difference to getting a campaign over the line.
And, handily, they've put together an infographic covering all the bases, from the prime length of time to run your crowdfunding campaign, the sweet spot for your word count, the immense value of a video, and more.
Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years.
