24th July: What does it take to run a successful crowdfunding campaign?

Crowdfunding has become a popular way to raise money for special projects, with creators setting them up to fund passion projects in film, music, art, theatre, games, comics, design, photography, and more. Often crowdfunding is seen as a risk-free and easy way to raise money – but the truth is that 2 out of every 3 campaigns fail to hit their fundraising target.*

I’ll be joined by my clients Dusty Knuckle to share details on how we planned and executed a crowd-funding campaign which hit target 3 days before the 30-day deadline, eventually raising more than £43,000 towards the opening of a new flagship, city centre restaurant.

Do you love food and want to turn that passion into a job? Can you write but not sure how to create a successful blog?

I’m teaming up with Ed Gilbert from Gourmet Gorro to share experiences and insights from our years in food blogging. The session will cover how to get started, finding your niche, and how to build an audience. You’ll also learn how to navigate issues of ethics and transparency, and the pros and cons of turning a food blogging hobby into a full-time career, and there’ll be plenty of time to ask your burning questions.
