What would you recommend giving as rewards?
There are two kinds of campaigns. The first is one that is aiming to produce something that may be useful to potential contributors â€“ such as Charlie Jones’ Permaculture Ukulele Musical Project.
These kinds of campaigns are aiming to raise funds from the actual consumers of their products, and I would highly recommend that they give that product as a reward, at or below the retail value. It is these types of campaigns that sometimes achieve hundreds of contributions, and potentially go way over their stated goal!
The second kind of campaign is one that provides or benefits the community, or the person posting the campaign, such as raising money for tuition. The primary motivation for people giving to these campaigns is not to for a reward, but to help make the campaign successful.Â For these, it makes more sense to give something of symbolic value, as a way of thanking a person for their contribution.
