I had lunch with a friend yesterday and we were discussing marketing strategies and tactics. I told him about a strategy that I wanted to pursue that involved approaching a much bigger company to potentially partner. I said “I’ve always wanted to talk to them but I know they won’t have time for me.” My friend shot right back, “Don’t bet against yourself! You’ll never know if they’ll work with you until you approach them and the worst thing that will happen is they’ll say ‘no’.” This was great advice and I’m planning on setting up a call with the potential partner today.
The same advice can apply to crowdfunding. Don’t bet against yourself by thinking you’ll never hit your target goal so why bother. You’ll never know until you try. On TuneFund you keep what you raise so the worst thing that would happen is you don’t hit your goal but you raise some funds you can apply towards your project and you learned a lot about crowdfunding and will be more successful the next time you try.
