The Book that Explains The Nuts and Bolts. THE KICKSTARTER FUNDRAISING HANDBOOK: A Critical Review.,
This review is from: The Kickstarter Handbook: Real-Life Success Stories of Artists, Inventors, and Entrepreneurs (Paperback)
If you're not familiar with the site and the concept of Kickstarter, like I was three months ago, and if you're an artist and/or entrepreneur, this book can be an invaluable guide and offer proper guidance.
What makes Kickstarter's concept unique is that it is a platform for a person with a dream to be able to appeal for and secure seed money- capital. The financial incentive is primarily to fund innovation and spur ingenuity.
If the initial goal is met or surpassed by the appointed deadline, the total amount pledged will be disbursed. Now, it's not as simple as asking for money and presto...the money rolls in, but, it is a validation of one's dreams.
THE KICKSTARTER HANDBOOK is an insightful look at how Kickstarter (dot) com works and a look at several successful strategies used to get more than the initial, stated goal.
This is a 200-page softcover about the size of an mass-market novel and many of the spotlighted cases budgeting and marketing advice.
