I’m sure as Entrepreneurs we have all heard of crowdfunding and how you can use that to create capital for starting projects, launching initiatives, or even funding a vacation. But because you know of it doesn’t mean you know how to do it and do it successfully.
As a person who is currently looking into crowdfunding as an option for financing a film I started to research how it is done and came across this book in my search.
The Crowdfunding Bible: How to Raise Money for any Startup, Video Game, or Project
by Scott Steinberg
In this book it covers topics such as:
- What is crowdfunding
- Who should consider it
- And how to get your crowdfunding project off the ground
Great pieces in this book includes the list of crowdfunding sites, examples of successful campaigns, ideas for your own campaign. The big thing about creating your campaign, and the thing that will help you the most, is research.
The book suggests that you look at other campaigns that have been launched and assess what they have done from their video, to prizes, their goal, and how they are marketing their campaign.
It also breaks down each crowdfunding site and their fees and requirements for payouts when it comes to reaching your goal.
Please note that this isn’t a step by step outline of what you can personally do for your campaign but more of a general outline of the steps needed to take but it does offer a great amount of information for anyone who is looking to get started.
As of today you can purchase the book in Amazon for the kindle app for free. However it’s not apparent how long that will last as the book usually cost $13.99 and the digital list price is $2.99.
