I’m regularly asked about Kickstarter, and if that is a good way to raise money. Check out Amanda Palmer’s campaign. She had a goal of $100,000, and after almost 25k people “backed” her, she raised almost $1.2 million dollars…. almost 12 times what she was asking for!
Crazy cool. An independent artist pre-selling $1,192,793 dollars… and the profit isn’t shared with a big label or anything like that. Awesome.
If you are interested in raising money for your idea through Kickstarter, you must study Amanda’s campaign.
