Approaching local and national press can be a great way to gather momentum for your crowdfunding campaign. People are more likely to back your project if they see exciting coverage from newspapers, magazines, bloggers, or other publications.

To post an article on your project page just log into your account and go to your project dashboard. On the left hand side underneath ‘Posts’, you’ll see ‘Press’. Press the yellow button that says ‘Add Press Coverage’ and you’ll be given the chance to add details such as the publication date and the journalist’s name, as well as a link to the article.
