The last and final interview of Coming Clean on Crowdfunding is with @Jason Pomerance author of Women Like Us! You can find his interview on Medium HERE, immediately following a list of the ten key lessons I gained from my experiencing interviewing eight of Inkshares’ finest-- @Janna Grace , @Jane-Holly Meissner , @Alastair Luft , @Amanda Orneck , @Jason Pomerance, @Ferd Crôtte, @Evan Graham , @Rick Heinz.
I encourage you to check out what Jason has to say, especially if you’re considering a social responsibility platform (ie. contributing donations from revenue generated by your book sales) to help grow your audience. I’m pausing the generation of new interview resources for now, and am looking forward to evolving the direction and nature of future content based on interest & need.
Thank you to all for your participation and involvement these past few months!
As always, questions and comments are welcome. On that note, @Susan Hamilton, you raise a great point. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to pose your question to any of the authors I interviewed. If anyone has a comment to share on the topic of generating reviews & recommendations, it would be awesome to hear!
Best of luck!
Hi Donna, great adds to the series. I just got done listening to the newest additions and the insights from @Alastair Luft , @Amanda Orneck , @Evan Graham , @Ferd Crôtte and @Rick Heinz are excellent.
I know we are all interested in adding official readers to our lists when we are in funding mode, but reviews and recommendations are important too. In a future video it would be great if someone could talk about that as well -- how do you boost your numbers in those areas? It is something I’ve struggled with and other ways to approach it would be a topic I’d certainly like to hear about.
"A lot of people when they try this they kind of assume parts of it will take care of themselves. They don’t. You have to pretty much count on manually finding all 250 or 750 pre-orders, yourself, individually. And you have to work for every single one of them.”

It’s taken me awhile to shake the holiday blues (read: hangover). But now that I’ve gotten all the flu, food, and family one could ever hope for out of my system, I’m rediscovering cogency and am embracing the internet again.
On the topic of inspiration, other talented and successful authors we’ll be hearing from include @Evan Graham, @Jason Pomerance, @Ferd Crôtte, & @Rick Heinz. If you have questions you’d like these authors to answer, please don’t hesitate to reach out/speak up.
