Launching a crowdfunding campaign can be a daunting endeavor for anyone, but it’s a new year and the possibilities are endless – NOW is the best time to make the decision to go for it!
Doing something you love through crowdfunding offers you huge marketing opportunities and access to funding from vast online sources.
At the very core of a crowdfunding campaign is a story. Most good stories told with video start out with a script. A good story has a beginning a middle and an end. You know when you’ve just witnesses a good story because it leaves you riveted and at the edge of your seat, or time flies right in front of you and before you know it, two hours has past. Hollywood has been doing it since the beginning of time — think back to some of the greatest movies you’ve ever seen and recount the thrill that comes from a great story.
Crowdfunding campaign stories are a little different though. The storytelling method that you are most used to is being entertained after you pay money for it (or stream online for free). In that case you pay for the story before you actually witness the story. In crowdfunding, the method that you need to wrap your head around is giving someone the story before they pay for it.
