There is a ton of information and so many great resources on how to raise money for a project with crowdfunding these days. So I’m going to skip the tips and show you proven strategies to fund your projects no matter what they are.
I have designed and managed several successful crowdfunding campaigns over the last few years. The largest of which, raised just shy of $28,000 for an ongoing photography project called panAFRICAproject by the legendary photographer Lou Jones. This was a big achievement as crowdfunding large amounts of money for a photography project rather than a physical product like a lens or photo book is considerably harder. I am currently running a new campaign for Jones that has already raised over $30,000 and is on track to reach $40,000 by the end of the month. I will be using this campaign as the basis and example for this three-part series on how to use crowdfunding to fund personal projects, art books, and more. So please take a second to check out the campaign and project page.
