Interview: The Power of Audience Crowd Funding

In this episode of Sales Unscripted, Jim Padilla and Thomas Umstattd discuss: The power of a well-articulated mission. How a crowdfunding campaign works and how it can be a benefit to you. The power of the right focused audience. Advertising on podcasts. Key Takeaways: Test your assumptions before you go all in with all of your resources. Don’t dismiss those who are willing to spend something on you, even if it’s not for your top monetized product. You can learn a lot from reading. You don’t need a million followers – a more focused audience can be more valuable than a broad audience in getting new clients. “The top consultants in the world, who are very expensive to talk to and get coaching from, almost all of them have books. For $20 you can get their very best ideas.” — Thomas Umstattd
