Kickstarter crowd funding (Professional context)
Putting on an exhibition is an expensive business even when it is quite small. Because of the cost of printing, mounting and advertising I have decided to start a crowd funding campaign with Kickstarter. I have never done this before, so it is a very new experience for me. I have seen some campaigns by friends and family that have been successful so this inspired me to give it a go. I have set my goal not too high at £300 because Kickstarter have an all or nothing policy, I will only receive pledged money if I reach my goal. If pledged money goes over my goal I will receive all the money. I have already started promoting my Kickstarter campaign on social media and I also hope to promote it on some online forums including the OCA forums. I feel that this is an exciting opportunity for me to help fund my publication and also unexpectedly it is another opportunity to advertise my exhibition as well. Their is a time limit on Kickstarter campaigns, I set mine to the maximum of 60 days which means it will finish just before my exhibition.
