10 Best GoFundMe Alternatives for Supercharging Your Funding

Once you have enough donations, it’s time to pay off any debts or expenses so they don’t accumulate. You can also use the donations as a down-payment on a mortgage or other type of loan so you can get out of debt sooner. For this stage of setting up your project page, you’ll need to decide what percentage of the donation does.

“Top line growth means there has been an increase in the gross sales and revenue,” entrepreneur Mary Hart explains. “When you achieve top line growth, you’ve brought in more customers, or sold more to your existing customers, and have made more sales than the previous month or year.”
