Corey Poirier shares how to successfully utilize crowdfunding as you launch your book.

Crowdfunding is not something people consider when planning their book launch. While underutilized, it can provide valuable exposure, feedback, and accountability prior to your book hitting the market.

When it comes to crowdfunding, you must have a clear plan. As with any launch, having a launch plan is key to success. Who are you going to approach? Where are you going to run ads? Are you going to utilize video? Once you know how you want to use crowdfunding, you can harness it to help you build credibility by building expectations and providing value to your audience.
