What people are saying:

"We got prompt responses.  Michael is very informational when it comes to actually kickstarting a project. This process can be very overwhelming and he will sit down and walk you through it. He wants you to succeed and this is obvious."
-Julien S Co-Founder of GreenTraveler - Raised $116,830

"You were extremely well organized with your thoughts and knowledgeable about the subject material. you clearly knew your space. It didn't hurt that you were very competitively priced - worth every penny and then some."  -Robi D - CEO of Zipbuds - Raised $272,575

"Without Michael I would have never attempted to launch a KickStarter campaign. He is a real pro and walks you through every step of the way." -Justin J  Creator of Wallet Buckle - Raised $44,611

It made me rethink my funnel by building it up first and testing it with customers on the list. I feel far more comfortable with the list so I can turn it on.

Michael Zeligs - Stanford University
Crowdfunding Consultant / Over $13 Million Raised

So, you are getting it together for your launch.  You still haven't finished your video or page, and you've been asking around about crowdfunding.  Everyone told you that you need 40% of your goal on the first 24hrs launch day to be guaranteed success. 

What Can you really do?

you can make a choice:

Option A - Launch without Support

Fly solo in your crowdfunding, panic when it's too late

Option B - Join Me, make a plan

Do it with a pro, carefully implement your launch

Right Tools + Implementation = Success

Ten years ago, I began with a single crowdfunding campaign, just like everyone else.  Then then I did a second. And a third. I began practicing the secrets of what worked and what didn't for my Kickstarter projects. 

Soon my campaigns were making $60k, $150k, $200k....eventually one even earned $9 Million (!!).

Suddenly, people from all over the world wanted to work with me. 
I was even invited by a publisher to write a book about Kickstarter Strategy!

Kinda wild, you know? But I knew a book would never do it. The only way to handle the intricate layers of rewards and equity crowdfunding is by holding hands with a seasoned tour guide, and by using the email templates and outreach strategies that we've developed to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.

Kickstarter Launch System - is it for Me?

what do I get when I Join the Course?

 

Here’s something for you to think about:

We’ve priced Fully Funded competitively, and even added a payment plan. It costs less than half of what you probably spend on restaurant food in a given month. 

- Think about value rather than cost. Some of our students are able to raise $15,000, $30,000, $50,000, $100,000, and that’s just the start. We’ve had a number of Seed and Series A investments come through with connections made by our students from their Kickstarter. Many of our students now have lasting, ongoing revenue.

- Also, think about what it would cost if you do it wrong. What are other times in your life you didn’t prepare for something you really cared about? At the end of the day did you lose prospects when you went public too early? With my system you’ll learn the exact method we recommend for your marketing, and how to represent yourself, without making the foolish mistakes that cause 70% of campaigns to fail.

FAQ:

Can your system really show me how to find backers?

Yes! I've been running crowdfunding campaigns since 2009 and I've seen exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to getting backers. No matter what you project is, you'll get more backers if you apply the techniques in our system :)

Who is this Program for?

This course if a great fit for product designers, creatives, artists, and entrepreneurs, and anyone feeling challenged, stuck, or overwhelmed by the prospect of crowd fundraising. It can be useful if you are completely new to online marketing, or as a crowdfunding-specific supplement if you already know.

What If i Want a refund?

I offer all projects a 45-day, no-hassle, money-back guarantee.  If you want to cancel, I will return your registration payments immediately.  I'm that confident that you’ll be awestruck by the quality and effectiveness of my instructions. If you take this course, you are guaranteed to feel TOTALLY SUPPORTED in my step-by-step guided walkthroughs ... you’ll be happy to avoid all-to-common Kickstarter mistakes.

 
 

My Commitment to You:

core values i will uphold at all times

I pledge to have a strict "no sleazy marketing tactics" policy. The world has too much fake urgency and hidden fees, and it's part of my mission to have 100% honesty and transparency in all of our business together. You will never be "upsold" or given "hard selling" for product that you don't want or need. I'm not going to give you email to my business friends, nor is this course just a "front" for more expensive trainings. It really is the complete system.

spam and affiliate free

No selling or sharing of your contact information, ever. No pushing of cheap affiliate products that you probably don't need. I only recommend apps that produce, and I never take a cut from the services or partners I recommend.

committed to your success

Every time you have a consultation or post a question to the group I'll do everything I can to get you "unstuck" so you can be clear on the next step in the recommended launch strategy.

constant growth & Discovery

I'll be relentless to innovate and create new systems, tools, and methods to help you stay at the forefront of the constantly evolving peer-to-peer marketing world. Giving you the latest training content of what actually works is my goal.  And you've got lifetime access to the program, so anything we discover will be added to the course!
