How long have you been writing?
What inspired you to write?
I wanted to create something for people to get to know what crowdfunding is so that they could have a resource that was easy to understand.
What steps did you take to publish 101 Tips to Successful Crowdfunding: From Someone Who’s Been There, Done That and Got the Cash?
I self published and raised the money with crowdfunding before I even published the book, I even had $1,100 extra. I had it professionally edited and made limited copies. Crowd funding is changing so much, it’s now time for a new one.
What’s your favorite part?
The section where I give people idea to raise the money.
Outside of writing this book, I understand you’re involved in other projects. Would you mind sharing what those are with us?
I am the producer and host of the Wright Place TV Show, now see on Dish on Demand Networks in 60 million homes. That show is for business owners who want to get some information on how to stay ahead of their crowd. It’s also available on demand on my website.
Do you plan on attending any events soon? If so, please tell us where you will be?
I have a lot of events where I am speaking or teaching on crowdfunding and even hold events at my office. I have a crowdfunding bootcamp that is being held September 29th and people can contact me at the website for more information. This bootcamp is for people who want to raise $25,000 or more.
Do you have a website?
Anyone can contact me at www.wrightplacetv.com or just call the office at 909 235 9744.
What advice do you have for someone just starting out as an author?
Make sure you have money to market your book. Without marketing there will be no sales because no one will hear about your book. Selling out of the trunk of your car is over-rated. This is a business, treat it like one.
Is there anything else you would like to say in closing?
Crowd funding is a great way to grow an audience and get your book paid for before it’s even published. I encourage everyone to come out to my workshop. Don’t leave money on the table!
Thank you Dr. Wright for this interview!
