Project campaigns run for 30-45 days but projects require 10-12 weeks of focused, intense work before and after the campaign. The project creator will need to provide updates and remain actively engaged by posting new videos, utilizing social media and through email blasts. It is recommended that the project creator/owner commit 1 hour per day and each team member commit 30-60 minutes per day during the length of the active phase of the campaign.
