  • Does anyone have any experience of crowdfunding and internet based fundraising? - With a forthcoming project planned involving an NGO in Uganda and my work as a photographer, I'm seeking ways of utilising the internet...

    I am a designer and marketeer and I was part of the team that got LiveCode funded and would love to get involved in any similar projects. http://runrev.com/prweb-livecode-largest-successfully-funded-kickstarter-technology-campaign-in-uk/

    Would love to find out more on how crowd-funding works.

    I think social media (Twitter, YouTube, Facebook etc) are the best tools for internet based fundraising. My favourite books for fundraising/crowdfunding includes: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fundraising-Ideas-Charity-Society-School/dp/0956702406/

    I work for Nordoff Robbins Scotland. I'm doing their social media marketing with the intention to increase awareness and for fundraising crowdfunding. I like to share ideas and learn from others. Looking forward to this meeting.

    I wonder if this will assist with the forthcoming meetup (in case of any planning needed!)..

    My own website is www.timothyaikman.com and a PDF of the work concerned is available via http://timothyaikman.wix.com/copy-of-photo2

    Thanks

      Since then, I have been in touch with the director of Capstone Projects (who lives in Dundee) who has given permission for me to work with them when I return too Uganda

      I am hoping that this project would be the first in a series (perhaps using other countries); but they have yet to be planned!

    Firstly, thank you for the efforts!

    If you like, I could send you a copy of the project outline as it currently stands – there are still a few details at the end of it which need to be finalised. I won’t bore you with the details but I need to find a way of getting the project moving forward; if using it as a case study helps, then so be it!

    Although I’d be interested in knowing what’ll be involved…

    Hi Timothy,

    Delighted to give you a heads up! Just had confirmation from Scotland's only Crowdfunding business, Bloom VC, that the founder will be coming to give a talk on Thursday 5th September.

    Further details to be announced shortly. Would you be willing/interested in sharing your plan publicly to the group so that Amanda Boyle can give a response to a 'live' case study?

    Best regards,
    Ewan

    I'm hoping it'll be January – between a lack of experience in internet marketing and some frustrating delays; I have a “proposal” which I’ve written for funding and/or marketing, but I need to get the project going….

    Thanks for the suggestion, Timothy! I'll see if we can't get someone along for this.

    When are you off to Uganda?
