Needs work: The first issue is timing. The book throws a lot of "to-dos" at a prospective individual or business who wants to use crowdfunding. While the book mentions that you need a team, it doesn't provide a template for managing the time commitment within that team. In other words, some information on how the workflow process looks like in a potential crowdfunding might be helpful.
The second issue is more information on adaptability. The book does an incredibly great job of telling you what you should do, but it doesn't address any obstacles. I would be interested in reading stories about failed crowdfunding campaigns as well as those that looked like they would fail but didn't.
Overall, though, this is a great book that should help any newbie to the crowdfunding process overcome the first hurdle, taking the first step. Ariel Hyatt's confident expertise and really helpful information should be just the thing to ease any fears.
I purchased the book halfway through my own crowdfunding campaign and was looking for help punting the campaign over the finish line (with about a month remaining). Crowd Start is full of literal and actionable steps to obtain real time results. By using the timeline, the chapter on "Assets" and utilizing Ariel's roadmap, I have been filled up with all of the knowledge I need to carry this campaign through to fruition and success!
Highly recommended reading whether you're just dreaming about a kickstarter, indie-go-go or other crowdfunding platform campaign or right in the thick of it.
And author Ariel Hyatt knows what she's talking about - she successfully completed her own crowd funding campaign, and has guided clients at her PR agency through the process as well. You get a proven, actionable plan. Well worth the price...and then some.
