Event Overview

85% of crowdfunding campaigns fail due to poor planning, mainly because people don’t realise that the real work takes place before they press live on a campaign.  Nicola has spent the last 7 years talking the crowdfunding process apart and putting it back together to develop a plan to help all prospective crowd funders set up the perfect campaign. Crowdfunding campaigns are just time critical, targeted marketing campaigns and whether you’re raising £1000 or £1m you still need a step by step process to follow. Join Nicola to learn her top tips for getting your Crowdfunding Campaign off to the right start and reaching your target as fast as possible.
