Whenever I want to learn a new skill, I've found it is important to learn from people who have detailed experience in this area. Aimee Cebulski is one of these people. She not only writes about Kickstarter but has used it successfully to fund her book, THE FINDING 40 PROJECT.
In the introduction for KICKSTARTER FOR DUMMIES, Cebulski writes "Kickstarter has quickly become a mainstream way to get a creative project made." Most people have no idea how to raise funds for their creative project, Kickstarter gives anyone the ability to raise funds—but it does take strategic planning and thinking to pull off successfully. This book will help you understand the details and creative possibilities.
The Kickstarter model is working. Page 6 says, "As of March 2013, individuals using Kickstarter have:
• Launched 89,400 projects • Funded 37,300 projects – a success rate of 43% • Raised $434 million"
"Kickstarter uses an all-or-nothing approach to fundraising. This means, if you don't hit your fundraising goal within a certain timeframe (about 30 to 60 days), you get nothing. As a result, you need to be very strategic in your planning, your goal-setting, and backer solicitation, all of which I cover in depth in this book." (Page 7)
The illustrations, step-by-step instructions and depth of this book make it a "must-have" for anyone who is going to use Kickstarter effectively. I recommend you get this book, study it carefully then launch your own creative endeavor. Aimee Cebulski has shown readers the path for their own success and opportunity with KICKSTARTER FOR DUMMIES.
