When determining the rewards for your crowdfunding campaign, says expert consultant Sally Outlaw of Peerbackers.com, make sure supporters feel like they’re getting a good deal.

For instance, an imprudent entrepreneur might offer as a reward access to an app that they’re crowdfunding for $25. “Well, when the campaign ends, the app’s going to be a dollar at the app store,” Outlaw says. And leaving your earliest adopters with the feeling that they’re being ripped off is a ghastly ploy in the realm of retention.
