    Can an ordinary person starts a campaign? Are there any special requirement to start one?

    Hi!

    There is plenty of literature out there on this topic. You should first do some research and then ask some more spesific questions.

    You really only need 3 things:

    a) Marketing
    b) Marketing
    c) Marketing

    Pretty much everything involved in a successful crowdfunding campaign needs to happen before you press "launch." Your success or failure is almost entirely dependent on pre-campaign preparation.

    Here is a rough checklist.
    Get your personal/professional network built. These are the people that are going to back and promote your project, so make sure they remember who you are. Lots of personal interaction helps.
    Start doing media outreach. All those bloggers, journalists or reviewers? If you send them your project blind, they will add it to that mountain of blind submissions, never to be heard from again. If you can instead reference previous interaction or times you've helped them market, you have a foot in.
    Prepare your project. Create an excellent video, great media, top notch rewards, excellent copy. Bounce it off a lot of people to get feedback.
    Map out your campaign strategy and make a pre-launch checklist. Figure out who you are going to reach out to, and when. Prep your inner circle and let them know when you're going to need their networking support.
    Plan your updates, update schedule, flex rewards, and backup media campaign in case your planned media campaign goes south. Decide the length of your campaign based on this. Remember, longer is not better. A short, well run, energetic campaign has a much greater chance of success than a long but poorly executed one.
    Figure out your launch day event. I usually suggest an in - person event, but a virtual one works too. Whatever it is, it should be good. It should be designed to get a maximum number of donors right away (within the first hour.) Day 1 is the most important day of your campaign. If you aren't significantly funded by Day 1 and don't have a lot of traction, your chance of success plummets.

    All that done? Good, you are ready to launch your campaign. Good luck!
