This TEM Short is in response to my interview with Ariel Hyatt, author of "Crowdstart: The Ultimate Guide To A Powerful & Profitable Crowdfunding Campaign", 

I discuss the mistakes I made when executing the Kickstarter campaign for Pedal Note Media's Brass Recording Project in 2013.

Digital marketing and branding rock star Ariel Hyatt returns to TEM to discuss her brand new book, "Crowdstart: The Ultimate Guide To A Powerful & Profitable Crowdfunding Campaign".

Topics Covered:

  • Trends she has noticed about crowdfunding through her own campaign and helping countless clients with theirs

  • The most common mistake people make when running a crowdfunding campaign

  • Why you have to be so direct when asking people for support

  • The importance of building a crowd before you ever launch your campaign

  • Why you need a compelling name for your campaign and a compelling pitch that tells a story

  • The importance of having a very specific schedule for the duration of your entire campaign


Favorite Quote:

  • "The assumption is everyone saw (your campaign) and nobody wants to donate when the truth is that nobody saw it and everyone wants to donate."
