To ensure you catch people’s attention, it’s important to have a great pitch -- and that doesn’t mean a couple of paragraphs of copy. Instead, breaking up the text with images and videos will help grab viewers’ attention while telling them more about your product, Rubin advises. Another important must-do is providing updates on your page. “Don’t just sit on your story," Rubin tells Entrepreneur, "but rather, engage with the audience.”

From thinking about what perks to offer your audience to acting quickly, watch the video above to hear Rubin’s four tips for a successful Indiegogo campaign.

Each week, the new pitch show Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch gives aspiring entrepreneurs one minute to prove that their product or business is the next million-dollar idea.
