Now available in hardcover Just a few short years ago, if you wanted to produce a new gadget or raise money to make an independent film, you had no choice but to scrape together funding on your own ... or hope a generous friend or relative might put up seed capital. These days, there's a new approach: crowdfunding. Sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and GoFundMe can not only help you raise money to fund your idea or cause, they can also help you establish a community of enthusiastic supporters.
In Crowdfunding Basics In 30 Minutes, author and crowdfunding expert Michael J. Epstein explains how to plan and execute a successful crowdfunding campaign. In a single sitting, you will learn about the different types of crowdfunding projects that are possible, including entrepreneurial startups (Kickstarter and Indiegogo), creative or artistic projects (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and other platforms), charities and community causes (GlobalGiving), individual support campaigns (GoFundMe), and patronage funding (Patreon).
This crowdfunding book covers budgeting basics as well as goal-setting, not to mention the importance of preparing professional-looking campaign assets such as video clips, photographs, and calls-to-action. The author explains how to design reward tiers that not only attract backers, but also won't bankrupt your budget. Other topics in Crowdfunding Basics In 30 Minutes include:
