“Getting nothing is a bit stifling.“ 
-Mitch

“We wasted a lot of money and almost did not make it.”  -Roger

“If you don’t know how to reach people, your campaign
will always fail, every time. “ -Ken

“It takes attention and management.”  
-Laurie

“People engaged but didn’t buy, and that is a tricky thing to deal with.”

“It’s important to market for a realistic goal  “ -Jia

Why do most marketing projects fail?

It didn’t matter how nice our video was, or how awesome the product was. My client didn’t go to potential customers and build community ahead of time, and didn’t have an initial group of committed fans waiting for him to watch during the launch.

HE QUIT AFTER THE FIRST WEEK.

How to Get Started with a Marketing Agency : Audience Promot...

Momentum / breaking news /   

Here's where we are at right now: Last year, the total amount of money raised through crowdfunding projects exceeded that of venture capital – There is more money, going to more projects, through a distributed funding ecosystem, than the whole lot of million dollar checks going out from the accredited investors realm. – how many of you have backed a crowdfunding project?  People are more curious than EVER about entrepreneurship, and they are willing to PAY just to have a behind the scenes view of getting funded and developing a project.

Seth Godin was recently quoted in a video interview trying to quell the rush of excitement around crowdfunding. “It shouldn't be called Kickstarter. They should call it Kick Finisher. It only works when you have everything lined up ahead of time”

Over the last nine years I've been in the trenches of this rush, running campaigns, helping develop the audience organization principles that are part of our pre-launch conversation, and now it's clear that we've created a dedicated system, applying old-school logic to new-school audience challenges, and it has catapulted my projects through to more visibility, Since that first failed event in 2009, I've now worked with project creators to use one on one conversations and personal relationship building to raise over $13 million dollars through crowdfunding.

What makes me different and better?

Reaching out to your loved ones can be the most rewarding, comforting experience you will have, and if you do it right, your crowdfunding campaign can be a huge coming out for you, a right of passage.  People who run crowdfunding before their communities have seen so much growth, .  So if you are feeling a bit nervous about crowdfunding, I'm calling upon every one of you to know that I see and I support you, and I realize what a huge leap this can be.

The Honest to Goodness Truth on Kickstarter Tips

Fundraising for entrepreneurs: You can't be reluctant to request money when doing this! You are going to be focused on getting the money, but you have to be aware of their standpoint, too. With the rising cost of living today, the main thing people keep thinking about is the best way to conserve money and the way to earn it. When you get started making enough money with your very first report it is possible to make several similar kind of reports in distinct niches. You may get money absolutely free of charge and this money can lift your company. Together with these, you're able to also think about raising funds for your enterprise – but it can be a hard road unless you explore a training course on crowdfunding.

Raise your Startup Fundraising: 3 Ways to Perks & Rewar...

Project Page – why design is everything

Who's Worried About Raise and Why You Should Pay Attention –  Startup Fundraising Explained

A History of Raise Refuted

Today we are going to look as project pages and how to build your page. The big thing about getting an upscale look are two things – color and design.  And interestingly this is what is most difficult with the Kickstarter and Indiegogo editors – they can't support custom fonts or columns, so what we recommend is to use a different program like Canva to make your iconic brand elements available through the page.  Using Section headings is a great way to introduce interesting color and font onto your page.  So I recommend going through your production document, and try to come up with headlines, before you start to write the story. Please note that the ways to design your page are the same between indiegogo vs kickstarter.

Nonprofit Fundraising: The Bizarre Secret of Raise

The Foolproof Indiegogo Review Strategy

Story is King:  Your editorial Strategy – 

Now that you've made your project main points, I'm going to show you how to make them work for you.  The key in any maketing campaign, be it on social media, email, ads, or content, depends on one thing: becoming lazed-focused on the exact part of your story you are telling.  Before I explain what that looks like, I'm going to share what is the opposite – The opposite of an editorial strategy is selling the same idea the same way again and again.  So and so is the first ever dot dot dot, buy now, again and again.  Many project creators choose only one selling point and they hammer it again and again the same way, this becomes excruciatingly boring for your followers.  What they want is an interesting tidbit here and there, and for them to feel like they are getting to know different aspects of your life.  Think of dating – do you tell your same life stories on multiple dates? NO!  You gradually share more about yourself through a variety of life stories, and this helps your date know who you are.  So when you are crafting an editorial strategy, focus on variety.  Now before I share about how variety plays into your editorial strategy, its important to see where and how this is used. The even impacts if you want to do crowdfunding loans instead of just rewards.

The editorial strategy has a final... Read More
