My Top Resources For Musicians Crowdfunding
Please note: This post contains affiliate links. However, I highly recommend and personally use all of these products, and there is no additional cost to you.
So you’re thinking about crowdfunding for your next music project. I’ve collated a list of different articles, sites & videos to help you on your way.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Don’t underestimate the importance of building your crowd before you crowdfund. Personally, I like to see around 1,000 Facebook fans and also see that the artist/band is interacting with their fans. Also, a mailing is extremely important because you own this list. Get stuck in now and check out the links. Any questions just write them below and I’ll get back to you asap!

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT underestimate how much planning it’s going to take to put a crowdfunding campaign together. The more work you do up front the better your outcome will be, not to mention, your stress levels. IndieGoGo has an amazing Prep Calendar that will get you cracking and Evernote will help to keep tabs on all of those lists and information you’ll be putting together.
