Creative Seminar - Crowdfund Your Book

Event Description

Would you like to learn all about Crowdfunding and how it can help you to raise funds to publish your book?

Crowdfunding is an easy way to raise funds for a specific project from a group of people – your family and friends can contribute, as well as strangers (new friends you are yet to meet).

You can use Crowdfunding to raise the money for:

  • printing
  • professional manuscript editing
  • interior design and layout
  • cover design
  • video book trailer
  • website creation
  • social media setup
  • marketing
  • distribution
  • promotional materials
  • and much more.

Crowdfunding has been used to successfully raise funds for many different types of projects, including charitable causes, creative endeavours, community projects, and many more. Crowdfunding is one of the fastest growing forms of e-commerce on the planet. It is clear that this concept works well, but how do you make crowdfunding work for your project?

If you’re looking for all the tips, tricks and information you’ll need for a successful crowdfunding campaign of your own, this seminar is for you.

Crowdfunding expert and co-founder of iPledg, Bryan Vadas will be presenting an exclusive seminar for the Gold Coast Writers’ Association. Writers are invited to come along and find out how to leverage this exciting fundraising option to publish their book/s, develop their manuscripts, or to fund any aspect of their publishing project.
