Now is the perfect time to build and engage with your audience for a successful launch in 2019.
This course is perfect for someone who:
- Is looking for full funding to cover the costs of producing their book.
- Wants to use crowdfunding as their main marketing effort to launch their book or revive book sales.
- Is willing to work very hard for 90 days during the campaign pre-launch, launch, and fulfillment phases.
- Is passionate and dedicated to spreading the word about their new book.
This course is NOT for:
- "Get rich quick" thinkers—crowdfunding requires time, effort, humility, flexibility, and hard work. There is nothing quick or easy about it.
- Indie authors who are not willing to be the face of their campaign. This course is not Crowdfunding for Introverts, this course is focused on raising funds to cover the costs of producing your book.
- You will learn successful marketing strategies that require you to be front and center. You will be reaching out to strangers and engaging with them directly. If you're too shy or feel uncomfortable with that, then this course is not for you.
Are you interested in crowdfunding your book but feel overwhelmed?
I've been there.
You have an amazing book that you'd love to fully fund using Kickstarter or IndieGoGo but...
You feel overwhelmed by all of the different crowdfunding platforms, strategies, and approaches and aren't sure what to do
Does this sound like you?
I'm interested in Kickstarter or IndieGoGo because it's an attractive solution but I'm afraid of risk and failure
I'm willing to spend at least 3 months on intense marketing because it means my book is paid for upfront
I really don't want to nag my friends and family to support my work
I want to know exactly what mistakes to avoid during my campaign
I'm ready to invest in my campaign in order to raise the funds I need for my book
I already have a million things to juggle and want the crowdfunding part clearly laid out and explained to me
I want to raise over $5k and don't want to risk losing it all
