Have you guys ever done a crowd-funding project, like Kickstarter or Indiegogo or Rockethub? How did you go about explaining it to your friends/family and what were your publicity techniques? Today I launched one to raise money to get my photography business off the ground, and I've done Tumblr/Facebook/Twitter/emailed a few people with businesses who have expressed interest in my photography before.
My mom's response? "People aren't gonna just give you money," so there's that hurtle to cross.
Also, for those of you who have run these campaigns successfully, can you give me any feedback on my project profile? Or even people who HAVEN'T done this before, since you're a ~general audience?~
