    EP #344 A Deep Dive Into Million Dollar Kickstarter Campaign

    When it comes to raising funds to jumpstart your business, any sum of cash is helpful. Think about what you could do with 10k, or 20k, or 50k.

    Then, imagine if you could raise a million dollars. On a platform like Kickstarter, when applying the right strategies, this is certainly within reach.

    Today, I'm having a conversation with the creator of the Top Shelf Camera Bag -- a project that pulled in $1,065,605 from more than 3,600 backers.


    I gotta say -- this episode is absolutely killer. It was such a lively and insightful exchange, and I'm excited to be able to share some of these strategies with you.

    What's holding you back from a seven-figure campaign? You might just be surprised that there's a lot less in your way than you think.

    Have a good listen!

    EP #343 How to Crush Your Funding Goal in Just 30 Minutes

    EP #343 How to Crush Your Funding Goal in Just 30 Minutes

    When it comes to launching a Kickstarter campaign, the process starts long before you hit the 'Go Live' button.
    What I'm talking about here is pre-launch. This usually starts several months ahead of your campaign, allowing you to build a crowd that is eager and primed to back your product the minute that you launch.
    Pre-launch is one of the most important elements of any campaign. And today, I'm sitting down with a creator who reached their funding goal in just 30 minutes.
    The project is called Owlbear Plush -- a stuffed animal that comes with digital integrations. It's a super unique product, and I think you're going to find the conversation to be extremely insightful.
    You'll come away with strategies that you can apply to your own campaign, learning how to attract over 7,000 backers for a $385k+ raise.
    Enjoy!

    EP #342 Taking The Guesswork Out Of Order Fulfillment

    EP #342 Taking The Guesswork Out Of Order Fulfillment

    When it comes to running a crowdfunding campaign, there's a lot to get excited about. From prototyping to marketing to communicating with backers, many creators love the process of launching a product.
    And then... there's order fulfillment.
    From my experience, entrepreneurs tend to find this process tedious, overwhelming, and confusing.
    Enter: Fulfillrite.
    Fulfillrite has been a close partner with CrowdCrux for a while now, largely because their services are so robust: it just makes creators' lives easier.
    In this episode, I'm sitting down for a lively rapid-fire Q&A with a fulfillment expert. Because at the end of the day, your campaign isn't actually successful until you've packed and shipped out those orders to all of your dedicated backers.
    Hope you enjoy!

    EP #340 An Amazing Tool to Finance Your Inventory

    EP #340 An Amazing Tool to Finance Your Inventory

    On this podcast, we talk a lot about what makes Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns successful. I believe a huge part of this is introducing you to new, innovative techniques and tools that can set you apart from the pack.

    Today I've brought on the CEO of Kickfurther, an extremely promising platform that not too many people know about yet.
    Kickfurther empowers creators to finance their minimum order quantities for e-commerce. It's basically crowdfunding for inventory.
    The crowd finances the purchase order, and you pay them back as the inventory sells.
    Pretty cool, right?
    I think you're really going to enjoy today's conversation. I'm excited to share this new tool with you all! I know that I'm pumped about it.
    Enjoy.
