I was mega impressed to say the least to see that Seth Godin smashed his $40,000 target within just THREE HOURS of launching it on Kickstarter (the world’s biggest crowdfunding site) – and now he’s standing at an incredible $193k with a massive 27 days to go. Take a look at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/297519465/the-icarus-deception-why-make-art-new-from-seth-go
The old way of writing a book was create it then market it. Seth has just proved how it is possible to get paid up front – before you even write a single word!
Here he tells you his secret tips on how he did it http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2012/06/reflections-on-todays-kickstarter.html
It’s well worth considering CrowdFunding for all your forthcoming projects (the best UK site I have found is http://www.sponsume.com/ )
