Not sure where to start on crowdfunding?

Not a lot of time up your sleeve to learn all the tricks to make your campaign a success?

Love learning at your own pace and in your own time?

Then the Crowdfunding for Changemakers online course is for you!

Invest just three hours of your time and you can learn everything you need to know to have your crowdfunding campaign up and running with the greatest chance of success. StartSomeGood has just launched its first online course full of short, practical and inspiring ideas to add to the ones you already have running around in your head.  Based on the StartSomeGood  masterclasses which has been delivered live over the past few years, the bite size clips will make the best use of your time and energy. You could even watch a video a day for 40 days over your morning coffee and let the ideas incubate throughout the day, or last thing at night and while you are dreaming let the ideas soak in.

Offering this course Crowdfunding for Changemakers, on line means we are ready when you are. The program will help you to plan, create and launch a successful fundraising campaign for your non-profit, social enterprise or community project.  By the end of the program you will:

  • Understand the reason most campaigns fail and what you can do to succeed;
  • Be able to set a realistic financial target, and understand what you’ll need to do to reach it;
  • Design rewards relevant to your project and likely to excite your community;
  • Identify the different stories contained in your campaign and how to focus the right story to the right audience;
  • launch a successful crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds you need to make a difference!

Here is what participant Sophie Paine has said:
Great course. Very practical- great way to approach marketing (lesson 21) about offering and not asking. “You can never have too much inspiration and optimism” – very true!

StartSomeGood is using Udemy, recently described by the Wall Street Journal as the Netflix for education.  To help kick start this new venture there is a special discounted price you can receive $20 off  (so discounted to $29) until end of March, using the code CHEERS2016.

We are looking forward to seeing the results of changemakers who take the course in the coming months.  Ready, set, go and start some good!
