For only 5$, bizgrowthcoach will provide his presentation on Make Your Kickstarter or Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Insanely Successful in a PDF PowerPoint deck. I get rave reviews when I give this seminar in front of live audiences.
Marty Koenig's insight:
Here's a testimonial story:
"It helped us focus and launch our campaign this week" [ 5 days into Kerwin's campaign, he's currently over 50% of his goal, and trending to 300%!...now that's results! Watch them blow away their goal here! http://kck.st/10zgcqe ] Update: He went on to raise $41,000 - a great success!
