How Andy Davis Raised $41,347 on Kickstarter to Make His Album Plus Live Performance of His Original Song “Capital Letters”
Here is Andy’s Kickstarter project video:
Singer /Songwriter, Andy Davis, runs his music career like a veteran entrepreneur and combines it with his song writing talent and a great voice, its no wonder why he is the #2 most funded project in the Music, Indie Rock category and raised $41,347 in only 30 days on Kickstarter.
No matter if you are singer, artist or an entrepreneur, you will need to built a fan base, test your music/product in the market to see if there is any demand and focus on working on your craft.
Andy shares how he achieve all of these and in this case study interview you will learn:

-How big was his fan base before he launched his project on Kickstarter
-His mindset on how he created his video to ask for money from his supporters

-His biggest takeaway of how to be successful as an independent artist (also apply for entrepreneurs and startups)
Here is the interview:
This case study is full of gems and lessons of how to be successful in any business. Plus his awesome performance after the interview singing “Capital Letters” (so good that it gave me goose bumps!), a new song from his full length album, “Heartbreak Yellow”.

Still listening to it. But I also sent the link to a gallery that is currently trying a kickstarter. I liked the idea of rewards for referrals.
