Monday Productivity Pointers: Raising funds with Kickstarter

This week’s Monday Productivity Pointers is about Kickstarter. Everybody’s talking about Kickstarter after the Veronica Mars TV show raised a whopping $5 million of funding to create a full-length feature movie—not from Hollywood execs or sponsors, but from fans and private backers like you and me.

Kickstarter is a crowdsourced fundraising site for projects: You can seek funding for your own project, and also contribute as a financial backer to someone else’s project that you think is a great idea and that you’d like to see come to fruition.

My first video will walk you through creating a Kickstarter project step-by-step, including determining how much funding you’ll need, creating rewards, and stating your project’s risks.
