I have consulted on Kickstarter projects and helped raise over $500,000. Most of these were projects started by friends or I had a personal interest in the project.
Almost two years ago, I wrote an article on this site about Kickstarter campaigns and offered my services for hire. Initially I helped on a handful of campaigns but every time we got to talking about money, they’d suddenly stop talking to me.
The problem is that if you’re starting a Kickstarter campaign, almost by definition, you don’t have any money. And if you don’t have any money, you can’t really hire me unless you pay me when and if your project gets funded. And even with my help there’s a chance that won’t happen. So it’s not a very good business model for me.
These days I get multiple requests every week to consult on Kickstarter campaigns. I literally don’t have time to answer them all which is why I’m posting this.
I want to help but if you’re doing a Kickstarter campaign you likely can’t afford me. I love the idea of crowd funding and when it comes to Kickstarter I have significant experience in making these projects work. So instead of turning everyone down, I’m writing an e-book about running successful Kickstarter campaigns. It’s going to cost $1.99. For two bucks you’ll get all my knowledge about Kickstarter right on your Kindle (or Android or whatever).
It will be out by this summer.
If you’d like to be notified when the book is available for sale, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All you have to do is put ‘Kickstart Me’ in the subject line.
