Let's start with a great example
I'm just going to start by praising an artist named Kate Kelly. Kate and I worked together on her debut full length album and she ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Her campaign is a shining example of a well run crowdfunding campaign. She successfully raised her goal plus some extra and had over 200 unique contributions. Now let's take a look at the packages she chose to offer:
Eeeek crowdfunding! That's where annoying people post annoying things annoyingly asking for money right???!!
Welp! Unfortunately sometimes yes. Some artists do not do a very good job of sharing and promoting their crowdfunding campaigns. As a result, they come off as spammy and annoying. You are hopefully going to avoid doing that by scouring the resources available on this site. First off, you need to decide whether you actually need to run a typical crowdfunding campaign. You may have some alternative options you haven't even considered.
