If you look up Crowd Funding on Wikipedia, you’ll find the concept “describes the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations.”
Although Crowd Funding can be utilized to fund disaster relief, citizen journalism, support the arts, fund political campaigns and, of course, start-up companies … very few people understand how this new and proven social media financing principle works.
That’s why it makes sense to join my colleague, Gary Spirer and me for our Friday G+ Hangout today to discover how you too can “crowd fund” (used as a verb) your next project. Gary is one of the world top authorities on the topic and he never holds back his candor ;-)
This is Part 2 of a 2-Part series about this interesting and sometimes controversial topic. Join us MarketingOnlineHangout.com at 12Noon PT/3pm ET for a 45-minute, content-rich Hangout sponsored by MarketingOnline.com
It’s OK to invite a friend, colleague or family member and if you want to access Part 1 so you have a better context of what this G+ Hangout is all about, CLICK HERE to check out the replay (recorded live a few weeks ago).
