Are you ready to crowdfund your next music project, or have you been seriously considering it lately? Perhaps you’re not ready at all because you’re not sure if you can pull it off – and you’re not even sure where to begin. Trust me – you are not alone in this! You’re probably seeing all sorts of crowdfunding campaigns these days through platforms like Kickstarter, PledgeMusic, and IndieGogo – and watching lots of other musicians rake in the dough to successfully finance their own  projects while you wonder how you’re going to pay for your own. Many artists are still skeptical of how they can leverage the power of crowdfunding for their own projects for fear of failure or lack of resources, but here’s where an experienced Campaign Project Manager (like myself) can step in and help you create a wildly successful campaign for your next music project!

My crowdfunding services will equip you with experienced strategies, steady support, and a customized action plan to ensure your success. It’s difficult to be objective when you are essentially “selling yourself” to your adoring public, so I’ll help you maximize your crowdfunding potential throughout your campaign. As an artist myself, I know how important it is to raise the necessary funds to drive music projects today, and I know how daunting it can be to do it alone. I’ve successfully crowdfunded 6 albums of my own so I’ve learned how to make the most of direct-to-fan campaigning over the years. As your Campaign Project Manager, my job will be to keep you focused, accountable, and motivated – and provide you with the most pertinent information and resources you need to meet your campaign goals.

Studies show that 45% of crowdfunding campaigns fail when administered incorrectly, but take comfort in knowing that campaigns with a team make 70% more money than those flying solo according to Indiegogo.

Testimonial-Circle Image Frame-Rory Sullivan-01“A special thanks Gregory Douglass at TheCreativeAdvisor.com for his help with project planning and support. I first met Gregory when he sang and performed on my song “Out Of Here” for my debut EP, “Here All Along” in 2009. He is an amazing musician, songwriter, entrepreneur, and a brilliant light in the music community of Burlington, VT. Thank you Gregory!”

Testimonial-Circle Image Frame-Michael Chorney-01“Gregory Douglass is a marquee performer and songwriter. As a side-gig he helps people with crowdfunding campaigns and has been fantastic in every respect. If you are considering crowd-sourcing I really recommend you talk to Gregory! As we were preparing all this, he told me that one of the beautiful aspects is learning that people really want to be able to help out. I was sure he was right and I very much believe in the power of connection. But now, after receiving your support, the heartfelt messages of encouragement, and the big vibe of camaraderie toward a goal, well I can only say that as much as I am humbled, even more I am energized and heartened beyond belief.”

Michael Chorney, Hollar General (Independent Singer/Songwriter)
