Money for me comes in second, and the investment comes from those who would really want the product/service to come into fruition. That is why there are pledges/donations from those particular set of people. Is this considered also as a growth hacking technique/method?
I've got a lot of ideas both for online and offline consumption. I just need something to believe in. Even though I'm creative and motivated I have that extreme loathing to be taken for granted. That is why I haven't started anything yet my innovations and all.
So yeah, I've considered crowdfunding as my number 1 choice for growth hacking. "Bring me in the money guys and I'll show you the goods" kind of thing. Is this a wholly productive and conducive strategy?
