How to get ahead in Crowdfunding – London

October 29, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

Do you have a great campaign idea for your charity or NGO, but don’t know how to fund it?

Have you got the concept for a product the world will simply love, yet don’t know how to raise the money to produce it?

Are you an artist who needs help making their next record, video or artworks?

If the answer to these is YES then you can’t afford to miss our new workshop event ‘How to get ahead in Crowdfunding’– your chance to find out how the power of the crowd is funding the future right now!

What You Will Learn

It’s incredible to think that crowdfunding has grown into a $5 billion dollar industry in just four years. That’s double the amount raised from the 1 million campaigns that ran in 2012.

Yet crowdfunding is not a new idea. The late 19th century saw the creation of one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks, the Statue of Liberty. Over $100,000 was raised in just five months – a substantial sum in those days.

Now in 2013 it’s possible to fund everything from music and films to 3D printers, Solar Panels and clean water systems for the developing world.

Yet the myriad of systems and mechanisms can be overwhelming in today’s market.

You might be looking for donation funding, reward funding, crowd lending or even offering equity investment. Yet Only 43% of campaigns succeed so you need to use everything you’ve got the best you can to ensure a successful fundraiser.

Whatever your genre of crowdfunding there is an ideal home for you and your idea, but what are the best sites available and how do they differ?

This workshop will navigate through the myriad platforms available, look at the most successful campaigns to date, demonstrate  best practises available to ensure the success of your campaign and offer video production ideas to make the best pitch for your project


Presenter Chris Smith is the founder of the successful workshop series ‘How to Master Social Media, Social Media Bootcamp & How to Master SEO’ has teamed up with leading Crowdfunder site for this presentation.

Andy Hix of Hix Media will also be speaking as part of the presentation. Andy will be looking specifically at video communications best practise for campaigns.
