On Thursday we talked extensively about the importance of reviews and how to put one together for Goodreads or Amazon. Did you post your review? How did this go?
Intro to crowdfunding
Activity: With a partner or two, examine either Kickstarter or Indiegogo, looking specifically at a publishing campaign as an example. As you do, consider the project’s:
-$ goal (and how much it was funded)
-pitch (i.e. description/images/video)
-the number/kind of reward levels for donors
-data on Kicktraq
Homework for next class
Find another crowdfunding campaign on either Kickstarter or Indiegogo (preferably one you did not look at in class) for a project that is close to the kind of work you’re interested in publishing. Be ready to share this in class and talk about how it might be useful in planning your own campaign.
