Crowdfunding Lessons 101

There is a TON of information about crowdfunding on the interwebs but there isn’t a ton of information about crowdfunding books in particular, which is why you and I are here together.

I’ve provided resources below to get you started so you can learn what other authors are doing on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.

You wouldn’t go to a eye doctor for a toothache so don’t spend too much time trying to adapt crowdfunding strategies that are specific to games, travel bags, and neck pillows. 

Instead, learn directly from other authors and illustrators who are successfully crowdfunding their work.

Prefer to do it on your own?

I offer a course on crowdfunding for authors for those who want all of the advice, tips, and strategies but don’t need personalized help. 

The course includes access to the Crowdfunding Vault which contains customizable email templates, pitch documents, autoresponder text, case studies, checklists, and spreadsheets to help you plan every aspect of your campaign.

Enroll in the Crowdfunding Vault without the course and manage your crowdfunding campaign more efficiently with these tools and resources.

If we haven’t already connected, be sure to follow me on your preferred social media platform so you don’t miss out on helpful tips and strategies to crowdfund your book.
