I'am running a crowdfunding project myself with as goal to pay for my photography study. Don't worry I will not spam the url here because a BuzzFeed editor would probably execute me on the spot with a silver bullet between my eyes if I did. We all heard the stories of people raising thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in just a few days for the most stupid things. So I thought it would be a piece of cake convincing people to donate for study purposes. However, after 15 months and 6 people who've donated a total of 190€ (about 250$) I'am slightly disappointed in the whole crowdfunding thing. Probably I'am doing something wrong. After a lot of thinking and self-evaluation this is the list with 12 reasons why your crowdfunding fails.
