First, let’s get this straight: crowdfunding is not a way to make a quick buck.
Successful crowdfunding campaigns take time and planning, said contributor Jim Saksa, who reported on crowdfunding for us last fall. He mentioned Analog Watch Co.’s Lorenzo Buffa, who spent six months planning his campaign. Saksa offered insider tips to building a killer crowdfunding campaign on this month’s Podcast, which is a crash course in the history of crowdfunding and its impact on the tech world today.
