You'll want to tap your own personal and business resources for money for your Gofundme campaign. This is important as you already have people in your social/personal and business network that are likely to be your biggest contributors.
Here are a few ideas for getting traffic to that page.
Email or call everyone in your address book and let them know about your funding project. Be sure to include a link when possible so they can visit the page and support you.
Include a link to your funding project in your signature line on all personal and email projects along with a brief description of the project and an request for support.
Post your request for help with your project on your own forum or blog so that your current readers know what you are into and can part of the effort.
Branch out into Facebook and Twitter and tap your social/professional contacts there by sharing or tweeting your link. As always, you will want to include a personal request about the project that lets people know why they should support it. Ask your friends on Facebook to share your link with their friends.
All these personal efforts you are making will pay off, not only with funding from people you know, but also money from their friends too as your link is shared around.
