Running an effective crowdfunding campaign is a ton of work. Not only must you have 30% committed up front but a successful campaign takes weeks, if not months, of planning. Once a campaign launches you have to be on every day promoting, communicating and dealing with the inevitable unknowns that always crop up. Of course once a campaign is successfully completed there is tons to do as well since you just signed up a gazillion backers and they want to know what’s going on and when their reward will ship. Sounds like a lot and it is.
