Welcome, fellow crowdfunding enthusiasts! Are you ready to tackle complacency? In episode 159 of Crowdfunding Nerds, Andrew and Sean are back to help you stay ahead of the game. We start with some casual banter, then dive into the dangers of complacency in Kickstarter campaigns. We also share our New Year’s resolutions and discuss how to avoid the pitfalls of complacency.
We share personal stories of overcoming complacency, emphasize the importance of gratitude, and warn about the illusion of eternal success. Learn about the importance of innovation, goal setting, and contingency planning.
We highlight the dangers of underestimating customer engagement, overstretching yourself, and unhealthy comparisons. We underline the power of communication and the necessity of seeking audience feedback.
We remind you that no company is too big to fail and that each Kickstarter campaign should be treated uniquely. Finally, we discuss the importance of continuous learning and wrap up with some valuable resources.
