Back to Basics: CrowdfundingIn this Back to Basics episode of DAWCast: Music Entrepreneurship, I take a look at crowdfunding and how it can benefit artists.

Many musicians are taking advantage of the medium, though not all are successful at reaching their set goals.

The truth of the matter is that a crowdfunding campaign can take a significant amount of work if you don’t already have a large, loyal following.

Listen to this audio to learn more about crowdfunding, how to run a successful campaign, and what the benefits of running a campaign are.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • What is possible with crowdfunding campaigns.
  • Why you need to be realistic with your monetary goals with crowdfunding campaigns.
  • Why you need to tell a story with your crowdfunding your campaign.
  • Why you need to create a video for your crowdfunding campaign.
  • How including photos in your campaign can help engagement.
  • Why you need to develop your website in advance of initiating a crowdfunding campaign.
  • Why you need to promote your crowdfunding campaign extensively.
  • How offering the right perks can get you more pledges.
