In 2013, Crowdfunding Projects Won’t Spontaneously “Fund Themselves” -- Get Real

Westchester, NY (PRWEB) January 01, 2013 Like a hangover from 2012, there is a growing and potentially painful misconception that if you just toss an idea up on a crowdfunding website, money will come running after it.
Christine Harris-Smyth's insight:

Projects have never crowdfunded themselves. In 2013 the space will be more competitive. Early adopters may have been disappointed in results taking their money off the table but... a lot of crowdfunding taps into existing communities rather than unkowns and going vertical is probably the key.

Kickstarter for Filmmakers — Is Crowdfunding Right For You? | Crowdfunding Creative Projects | Scoop.it
Christine Harris-Smyth's insight:

Returning to my concerns that the key to success in any marketing is an integrated approach to media, earned and paid, online and offline - and acknowledgement the key to crowdfunding is reinforcement and leverage of existing relationships into a broader community.

 

Planning and execution critical - without excellence in execution you may be wasting your efforts.

 

The 50% that succeed do so because they bought their A game to the execution. It is not a lottery.
