    Title: Social Media for Crowdfunding

    Instructor: Julie Keck, Media & Communications Director, Seed&Spark

    Find out how to use social media to meet your crowdfunding goals


    Social media gets a bad rep for being a solipsistic medium (and crowdfunding for being, you know, beggy), but I have to let you in on a little secret: it’s just about relationships and good business. In this session, learn why social media skills are essential to a successful crowdfunding campaign, how to be a responsible social media citizen, how to plan your social media for an effective campaign, and how to run a campaign that helps you build your audience, raise money, and continue doing what you love the most.

    What you’ll learn from this training:

    1. Why social media is important for crowdfunding
    2. How to prepare your social media audience for your crowdfunding campaign
    3. How to crowdfunding on social media without out turning it into the ‘me’ show
    4. How to use your social media accounts after your campaign to continue the life of your project
