Crowdfunding is another way to drum up cash to start a business or fund a project.
The 3 main crowdfunding sources are GoFundMe, Kickstarter, and IndieGoGo.
Kickstarter is for creative projects. GoFundMe can be for human interest projects like supporting a family whose house has burned down in a fire. IndieGoGo is where you can find the latest in cutting-edge tech projects.
For all of these funding platforms you must start strong on the first day your project goes live on the website for funding.
See each source’s terms and conditions. You might have to raise all of the money you seek or you won’t get any of the money given to you.
You can go on YouTube to watch videos about how to execute a successful crowdfunding campaign.
With Kickstarter you offer your funders something in return for their money. Like a copy of your book when it is published.
