It’s that time of year New Yorkers collectively have one seasonal trip creeping on their minds – the Hamptons. It’s the destination everyone flocks to on the weekends over summer, and groups of friends are starting the preparation now. When we were out in NYC the other week plenty of people were discussing their Hamptons prep strategy (read: along with pooling money from their friends, hitting the gym on the regular and starting some sort of cleansing-esque eating habits were also commonplace).
With Crowdtilt, we want you to focus on the fun parts and fund your trip with your friends without the hassle. Crowdtilt is the easiest way to collect money from your group, whether it’s for a weekend in the Hamptons, Lake Tahoe, or a weekend boat charter. Here are some recommendations for creating your Hamptons campaign:
The Tilt Amount is Your Friend: No money exchanges hands until the minimum has been reached. This is a great way to ensure you’ll have the money for your deposit upfront, and you’ll need a certain amount of people to commit to the weekend in order to make it happen. Once you surpass your tilt amount, you can use new thresholds of funding to cover additional costs for the group (like included groceries and booze).
Social Proof: When everyone can see that their friends are contributing, they’re more inclined to contribute, too. And if your friends have the Crowdtilt app on their phone, they’ll get a push notification once each friend throws down for the campaign creating even more social momentum!
Sliding Costs: You can set up your campaign for flexible pricing, so the more people you have contributing, the less you spend. You can set a minimum number of people that must contribute to the weekend, and once that goal is met (and the trip “tilts,”) each additional person will dynamically lower the total amount each group member pays.
To show how excited we are about all your NYC weekend getaways, we’re doing an awesome promotion to celebrate all that is Hamptons. 1 out of every 5 campaigns that use Crowdtilt to pool funds to make their Hamptons house happen will get 500 bucks towards whatever party supplies you need to make your weekend even more festive. Email tiltNYC@crowdtilt.com with the link to your Hamptons campaign or just use the promo code “hamptons14” and we’ll enter you in the contest. Have fun out there!
