How To Use Crowdfunding & Creative Financing Effectively w/ Brandon Adams
Do you have any passion projects that you’ve been dreaming of creating for years, but never had the money to make happen? Most of us have projects we’d love to work on, but without a client to fund them these types of projects clearly require a different approach to financing.
Brandon Adams is the executive producer and co-host of Success In Your City, a reality show currently in production all about success and the different ways that different people define it all over the country. He also has a background in crowdfunding and serves as a consultant or advisor for various companies.
Today he talks to us about how he has found smaller sponsors in each city that they film in order to bring his vision of the project to life, as well as how to get creative about what’s received in exchange for that sponsorship. He also discusses his unique approach to creating a show, and what it takes to run a successful crowdfunding campaign.
