It goes without saying that the Internet is full of immensely powerful tools and platforms — Indiegogo itself is an indication of this.

Marty Koenig's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:37 PM

People keep saying "I don't have any money, that's why I'm doing a crowdfunding campaign.". Let me tell you, that's a tough road. Many of these tools below cost some money. You'll want to plan for that. Get a job first, or have your friends and family five you $1,000 so you can have a small chance at a successful campaign. 


I moderated a panel last week called "Crowdfunding Successes" with four successful Kickstarter raises. The very 1st question I asked the panel was, "What is the one thing you will do different next time?" Every one of them said "Next time we will get more exposure, do better PR and better marketing. We learned that the right way is to pay someone to do that instead of trying to do all that ourselves."

I love Marty's comments because he's so spot on!

We often hear about the 'Million Dollar Wins' but we don't hear that they spent $50k - 150k in a media campaign in order to do so.

There are many extolling the 'virtues' of Crowdfunding.   There are many more who claim they are experts on the matter.   We hear stories every day of stories of great things.    What we don't hear, is that there are just as many failures.   The famed Kickstarter project has 85,000 smartwatch orders to fill ... $10 Million down the tube, no product to ship.

This is a common occurrance in Crowdfunding.  In a 'revovering econony', we need less crowdfunding - sucking money out of circulation - and more resources such as www.GlobalCEOspace.com which for over 25 years, has been helping Entrepreneurs succeed.
