Good Friday practical crowdfunding workshop

If you'd like to spend a couple of hours of your Good Friday holiday getting a crowdfunding project off the ground, or helping others with theirs then this meetup is for you. Or just come down and enjoy Naked Coffee's Good Friday Cake promotion :)

Mike Royston from crowdfunding platform Start Some Good who spoke at the first Brightoneers crowdfunding event will be hosting a very practical workshop to help anyone interested in getting a campaign going. In particular, Mike is working with The Bevy to help them with some cool ideas to raise more money for their important project so this is a chance to help out and get involved. Or you're welcome to bring your own ideas for new campaigns.

Here's more info from Mike:
There are so many fantastic projects going on in Brighton right now let's showcase it to the world. Launching under the umbrella of the Brightoneers, hosted on StartSomeGood.com.

Anyone that's interested can come along to the workshop on Friday 29 Marchl to draft your campaign. We can help each other work through the details and share ideas. I'll be happy to assist you in progressing your project.

Topics I will address include: how to make an effective video; setting realistic targets; creating enticing rewards; composing a compelling narrative; understanding and utilising the tipping point; marketing strategy and technical trouble shooting.

This cooperative and collaborative approach could enhance everybody's campaign, we can share resources, promotion, skills and supporters.

Feel free to get a head-start before the event, you can submit your venture here: http://startsomegood.com/StartVenture
Here's a great video to watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkNImMHVWwk

    Hi there, unfortunately I am not able to make this now. I live in London and it hasn't worked for childcare. Sorry for the late change. Best wishes.

    Next time thanks Tom (re: gifting food on the street idea and other stuff). Off to meditate for four (much needed) days.

    I watched the live stream from sxsw the other week of Slava Rubin's talk (CEO/CoFounder Indiegogo). There is a link on the session page to an audio recording on Soundcloud. Plenty of personal story but also some advice. (Hope it comes across when you can't see the slides). http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_IAP5309

    Ah can't make it, away for easter. Sounds really interesting though, and if there is an opportunity to do it again post easter in the eve, I'd love to attend. In the meantime I'll check out the StartSomeGood website :)

    I'd love to come but Good Friday isn't a good day for me as we always do family stuff, would be up for this if on an evening though.

    I'm MD of Brighton Fringe and we are very keen on further developing crowd funding as a tool for participants.
