Post Anyone have any advice on how to successfully fund an Indiegogo campaign?
Hello everyone!

I'm Audrey and I'm new to the lounge, just looking for peers and some advice and guidance from anyone who has launched or completed a successful crowdfunding campaign for financing their book.

Anybody?

Thanks!

Hi Audrey!

I funded my children's book through Kickstarter last year. It was a lot of hard work but if you persist and treat it like a job I'm sure you'll get it done.

Some tips:
- Put A LOT of time and effort both getting the page ready and during the entire campaign. You really do need to treat it like a job

- Make a video. If you are not comfortable editing find a friend who is.

- You will need to hit up all your friends and family. Email, facebook, twitter, instagram, everything.

- Create a facebook page about your indiegogo project page.

- Start a blog and write some articles about your experience

- Don't be shy. That doesn't mean it's ok to spam but try to find places online where people talk about books and engage them in your idea.

Hope that helps a little and good luck!

Hello.

Thanks for your reply, and actually it is very helpful. I thought about starting a separate Facebook for my project page so I will do that, and I will also get a blog done as well.

Thanks!

You're welcome! If I can think of anything esle I'll be sure to post them here.

Just a side note, I paid for the advertising on facebook which did get me quick a few more 'likes' on my facbook project page but I had no way of knowing if that translated to actual bids on Kickstarter. Just another thing to think about.
