Social Media Essentials for Successful Crowdfunding

Regardless of the type of campaign you're considering, i.e., cause, rewards, pre-sale or even investment-based, understanding and mastering the tricks of the trade in using social media is essential in securing success in your crowdfunding efforts.

Come learn everything you can about how to use social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest, etc., from our assembled panel of experts who coach businesses and individuals to success in pursuing their dreams, utilizing social media as part of their arsenal.  Our panel will consist of the following social media experts, and Rita Crompton, of The Inventors' Roundtable, will be that evening's moderator:

Brad Friedman - The Friedman Group (http://friedmansocialmedia.com/)

Carrie Gottschalk - Social Media Strategist, Webolutions (http://www.webolutions.com/strategicmarketing.cfm)

Danielle Menditch- Grit Girls Consulting (http://www.gritgirlsconsulting.com/)

These panelists will also be able to provide social media services for your crowdfunding campaign, on a fee-basis, if, after attending the panel discussion you're still of the view that despite what you've learned, you feel either than you can't go it alone or would prefer to just have someone else take care of the headache.

Come and learn.  We can promise you this: you won't regret having attended, although you might very well regret not attending.  Remember, studies have demonstrated that sales people who use social media tools to further their business have a 78% higher success rate than their colleagues who don't.

Do yourself a favor, and don't miss this meeting!

    I am brand new to Crowdfunding and have very limited knowledge about social networking, but I came away from last nights Meetup with several pages of notes and some excellent information about both. Thanks to all involved in creating this group! I'm looking forward to the Indiegogo event this Saturday at Brooklyn's, and I'll have to go buy more notebooks for all the notes I plan to take.

    Thanks for an educational evening. I really enjoyed the time at the end when we engaged in group conversations - I would love to see more of that next time.
