Finally Going to Do It!
Kris and I have been talking about this for some time, but it just never seemed like a right time to launch it. And we have the Best Practices on Teachable already that is free, but without a workshop structure, that can only cover so many details.
But today, as we were talking about different aspects of what Brandon is doing and why over the years more writers don’t use Kickstarter and other sites like it, the reason became clear.
The details. Writers are overwhelmed by the details.
What do you do first, what do you do next, how do you set stuff up, how much to ask for, how do you fulfill, what kinds of rewards do you do, how do you figure costs of rewards so you don’t lose money, shipping, updates, and on and on and on. And even more importantly, what kind of project, which one of your projects could work for you, how do you get the word out, what are the patterns of a campaign, how long to set it for.
Details! Lots and lots of Details!
Six weeks worth of step-by-step details. That is what this new workshop will be about, so that when you are finished with the workshop, you will know exactly how to launch a kickstarter project when you want to. Fear of the details will no longer stop you.
So we are going to start the workshop in August. I do not have it up with the August workshops yet, (maybe tomorrow), but we hope that with the free best practices and the six week workshop covering every detail, you can feel confident in making extra money using Kickstarter, and other platforms just like it.
Six weeks of details. Could be great fun, actually.
