    2. I ve known what crowdfunding is for about a year I ve tried and failed to launch two Kickstarter projects I think it s a great idea, but it s a little like hitting the lotto, only in this case, you re the lottery ticket If you ve got a story that touches the heart, you re likely to win If not, you re going to be one the invisible many.When I pick up a book like this, it s see how it relates to me How can I benefit from the knowledge buried between these covers Reading through this book, I discov [...]


    3. My Thoughts on CROWDFUNDING FOR SOCIAL GOOD Well for starters, not being an economic whiz kid, I had to find out what Crowdfunding was In short, it is a currently favored manner to raise capital in tiny amounts from a very large group of individuals via social media and the Internet I recently saw this in action via another book and the author s use of the site Indiegogo Pretty ingenious, if I do say so myself It is a method that appeals to me I am a pretty frugal soul so I would not normally ju [...]

Many of us are familiar with sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo People use these sites to help them to finance their creative projects Now everyone can be an entrepreneur I have even contributed to a couple of them I had never before heard it referred to as Crowdfunding, but that makes sense And I haven t heard of that, simply because I haven t ever paid much attention to it before In this book, Devin D Thorpe takes you into that world He provides detailed explanations of how to create a succe [...]

    7. I ve come to love the style of writing Thorpe offers It s not boring or dull and it s filled with stories of successful crowdfunding campaigns Laced into the pages are tips and tricks readers can use While the idea of such a fundraising campaign can seem daunting, when broken down into smaller chunks, and done with the correct planning, it can take the mystery and headache out of giving back to our causes no matter what they might be.Crowdfunding is still a lot of work, but with the right tools [...]


    8. Decent readIt isn t a blueprint type book, but a good overall review and entry level book on crowdfunding Worth the price.
