Our friends over at PhotoShelter, the company co-founded by CFC Fave Speaker Allen Murabayashi (and the same company that is offering the free guide, Freelancer’s Online Marketing Blueprint), have introduced their latest report on “crowdfunding.”
It’s written for photographers but the material can be applied to almost any creative freelancer who needs money to produce a personal project.
Crowdfunding platforms (such as KickStarter) provide a new, powerful opportunity to gain financial support for projects by reaching a large online audience anywhere in the world. Facilitated by social media, you are now able to directly promote your personal projects and solicit funding to reach your goals in a manner that is highly efficient, far reaching, and conducive to raising large and small sums of money.
This free guide explores the crowdfunding options available, offers tips for success, and shares a series of photographer case studies of crowdfunding successes and failures.
Download it free here and let us know in the comments if you have any experience with “crowdfunding.”
