Meeting: Sept. 22 Online zoom meeting begins at 6:30 p.m,.
Be a part of the process as we look at select videos from Kickstarter and Indiegogo to see if they were a winning campaign or not, then discuss and see if we can learn from what they did right or wrong. According to Kickstarter, a video is by far the best way to get a feel for the emotions, motivations, and character of a project. It’s a demonstration of effort and a good predictor of success. Projects with videos succeed at a much higher rate than those without (50% vs. 30%).Don’t miss this different, interesting, fun and insightful way to learn about crowdsourcing campaigns.
