Crowdfunding: Management, Social Media, & Guts
Business & Technology
Crowdfunding is not for the faint of heart, and it is not easy, but every entrepreneur and/or small business owner should do it at least once in their growth practices.
This class will cover the management, social media, and the guts behind successfully launching, managing, and wrapping up a crowdfunding campaign.
Over 3 hours we will take time to look into:
- Considerations & Commitment to running a crowdfunding campaign
- Psychology: It's a marathon, not a sprint-->how to set yourself up for success, and be prepared before, during, and after your campaign
- Social Media: Tools, Tips, & Tricks for mapping out and executing a project
- Guts: What do you need to know from end to end when it comes to your project
This class focuses on providing you information to apply to your personal goals, professional entrepreneurships, and/or small businesses. Together we will bring to you not only 1st hand experiences with crowdfunding, but also anecdotal, case studies, and take-away guides for successful crowdfunding.
All ages welcome
