Jason B initially suggests that 1000 investors @ $1000 each will probably be less of a headache than 1 investor @ $1M. However, Jason F goes on to explain the complexity of keeping 1000 investors informed and happy whilst maintaining a relationship with 1 investor may also be a struggle.
In this episode of the podcast, Jason F explains the ins and outs, tips and tricks to getting traction behind your crowdfunding push. How to correctly utilise social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn) and search engines (Google) to attract returning customers and new investors. Whilst it takes a lot of effort, apparently, he promises it is worthwhile 🙂
