In this introduction to crowdfunding, you will gain a better understanding of what it is, what funding portals work best for your needs, the pros and cons, how to set yourself apart, and how to develop your web presence and harness social media for a successful campaign.

Whether you run your own creative business or simply enjoying sharing your creative endeavours online, it can be difficult to work out the best way to present what you have to say online. This workshop is designed to give you practical tools and ideas for using your website, newsletters and social media platforms to grow your online presence.
