An Artist’s Guide to Crowdfunding Domination!
When I was young, I thought the life of a “starving artist” sounded cool and in some way, meaningful.
Whether it’s musicians, painters, or writers, we’re taught to romanticize art and all of the sacrifices that artists give up to produce their work.
As I grew older, I came to realize that the “starving artist” norm isn’t an ideal. It’s not healthy, and it’s not a life that leads to happiness.
Vincent van Gogh lived a horrible life and he wasn’t really recognized until well after his death. The same goes for great writers like Edgar Allen Poe.
Wouldn’t it be great to gain recognition now?
What if you could actually make money doing what you love?
That’s the topic of today’s conversation and why I brought Ian Anderson of the Launch and Release blog onto the podcast.
Ian and I go way back. We both entered the crowdfunding industry at the same time (2012). I admire the effort and quality that he puts into his work.
In this interview, he shared the crowdfunding advice that has helped hundreds of campaigns raise more than $1.6 million online. He’ll teach you how to grab attention, get more backers and transform your career.
