    Hi, you have a very noble campaign. Most people don’t like sharing successful strategies. Anyway, I have one question, if you are committing $1000 to the project, why not donate it to your campaign so that you get an equivalent bonus from the advertisers

  • I like this new arrangement. Even if no one donates to a campaign, the owner can raise some money himself and benefit from the bonus

    i can only grant money that i’m not using so projects with budgets less than $100 are the only ones i can consider under grant terms

    @gathiaka the issue of budget is how much am willing to spend. If your budget is higher than what i have, then i won’t look at your proposal twice – there i nothing you can do about this. The other aspect of budget is how realistic it is. if it seems too much or too little for what you are proposing, then i won’t touch your project. Kind of…[Read more]

    What really matters depends on individual investors. For me, the list goes like this in order of importance(starting from most important) : Budget>Kind of Project>Repayment schedule>Return percentage
    The other factors fit it after these 4. If the registration fee is increased, safety net will be number one on my list

    at the current rates, even thousands of projects won’r really help. DO you realize that a loan of just $5000 can only be covered by 1000 registrations or 200 funded loans? There is potential but its not practical

    Happy holidays. The kind of discussion we want to see is between people from a specific area who have practical information about a project. whether its btwn borrowers or investors as long as its independent information that can help those interested in funding the project to make better decisions. For example, i have almost zero information…[Read more]

    • @amyelliott
      What practical information are you talking about? Is it the nature/location of the business or lack of adequate knowledge about such business?

      • I’ve looked at your project and I think what could be considered practical information is things like average rent for offices in your area, average salaries for people doing a specific, how well that kind of business does etc if the potential investor has this information, he will make the decision whether to fund you or not faster.…[Read more]

  • Borrowers need to participate more in discussions to get noticed. The idea by @catherineflores that borrowers from a certain area to provide more details about projects from their jurisdictions is also very important

    If the registration fee is set at $100 or more, we will readily fund big projects because we know the proposals are posted by serious people (someone who can risk his/her own $100 is definitely serious about business)

    Very true, as it is, you can still lose your money even when you choose to be covered by the safety net. @forexwithfriends you need to find a way to make serious commitments to investors to assure them that their money is safe

  • There’s no average because it all depends on how vigorous you post links, where you post links and even how popular you are out there. But if you seriously want the commission, I’ll say you write articles and post them in directories. When this site becomes more popular people will be looking for answers and articles will provide these answers. So…[Read more]
