Crowdfunding Uncut | Kickstarter| Indiegogo | Where Entrepreneurs Get Funded

Why should you listen to Crowdfunding Uncut? Because I’m asking the same questions you want to know. I know what it feels like to fail at crowdfunding. I also know what questions to ask, and what to do to raise over half a million dollars on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. As I’m also advising Crowdfunding campaigns, I need to keep up to date with what’s working and what isn’t. Questions that will get answered on this show: what crowdfunding platform is right for me? What can I do to have a successful product launch? How can I get 1000 backers for my project? What really matters? What if I have a small budget? What happens after crowdfunding? I will share with our best interviews showcasing the campaigns processes, failures, critical lessons learnt and actionable strategies showing YOU how to get your project funded. This is where project creators get funded.

Brandon T. Adams is co-founder of an upcoming event that is already poised to be a huge success. The Young Entrepreneur Convention will be happening in Des Moine, Iowa and is going to be a life changing event for many. Already scheduled to speak are John Lee Dumas, Ken Shamrock, and many more high profile entrepreneurs who are giving their time and expertise to the young entrepreneurs who will be gathering at the conference. In this conversation Khierstyn chats with Brandon about his life and entrepreneurial background, why he had the idea for this conference, how he’s made the Indiegogo campaign so successful, and what people can do who want to be a part of the movement.

Taking his love of entrepreneurism to the world.

Today’s guest, Brandon T. Adams has launched a number of companies and has the kind of real world entrepreneurial experience that comes from doing the work to build a thriving business. After inventing his first product, attempting the start of a few companies (some failed and some succeeded), and starting a podcast (The University of Young Entrepreneurs), Brandon came to the conviction that it shouldn't be so tough to follow your dreams. His failures, mistakes, and the advice he received have given him insight that enables him to start a movement among the millennial generation to do more, together. His enthusiasm and vitality are contagious, which you’ll hear on this episode of Entrepreneur:Uncut, so be sure to listen.

 

How does a crowdfunding campaign hit 50% funding in just 24 hours?

Brandon T. Adams put together the Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for his upcoming conference… but he didn’t do it off the cuff. He and his team were very strategic. They took it upon themselves to prepare the soil for a very fertile crowdfunding campaign. Some of the things they did was in person meetings and presentations prior to the launch of the campaign, live events during the campaign, building buzz before launch, using effective video emails, creating a quality, compelling video for the campaign page, and much more. If you’ve been considering a crowdfunding campaign you need to listen to this conversation because Brandon shares everything they did. It’s a very enlightening conversation.

 

Using Video in email to get yourself noticed.

For The Young Entrepreneur Convention to be a seriously appealing event to the people he was trying to reach, Brandon T. Adams knew he’d have to get the right speakers. Some of the big names he considered reaching out to were John Lee Dumas, Ken Shamrock, and Seth Godin. How could he reach out to them in a way that would not only get his email read, but also secure them as speakers for the conference? He’d heard from many people about using video in an email to make yourself stand apart from the hundreds of emails high profile people get daily, so he gave it a try. It was a hit and in this episode of Entrepreneur:Uncut Brandon shares the story of how he made that happen in way that actually DID result in big name speakers agreeing to participate in his event.

 

What to expect from The Young Entrepreneur Convention.

 

The vision of the Young Entrepreneur Convention is to inspire those with the ambition to do big things to join a movement with the potential to redefine what it means to lead. The convention is the focal point around which all that will happen. It’s an event that supports entrepreneurs and those thinking about making the leap into business for themselves and it brings together like-minded individuals and lays the groundwork for cooperative efforts that lead to personal success. Young entrepreneurs all over the globe, including the founder of the million-plus listener "Entrepreneur on Fire" podcast John Lee Dumas, are eagerly anticipating the launch of this movement. Listen to this episode to get details on how you can participate.
