He will also provide you with a campaign strategy and tactical “how to” manual so that you can push out your page to potential supporters. In addition, Rod will provide a regular analytics review of the crowdfunding campaign with adjustments to the strategy as needed, write support scripts for you to send to your email, social, and text contacts, and provide a launch team strategy manual to help you spread the word about your book.
Finally, Rod also offers broad-based fundraising and strategic planning consultation to help you take your author platform (non-profit or for-profit) to the next level of funding and long-term vision.
