Free preview below: "CROWDFUNDING" SCENE (A customer, PAT approaches JULES who is a salesperson at a marketing firm) PAT: I'd like to buy myself a crowd. JULES: What? PAT: I'd like to buy a crowd. I heard you handle crowdfunding and I need a crowd. You know... like a posse? JULES: That's not exactly what crowdfunding is. PAT: I want to look important and if I have a crowd following me around, that will make everyone think there's something special about me. JULES: I'm afraid that's not exactly what we do. PAT: When you're growing up, everyone tells you that you're special. Your parents, your teachers, your parole officer.... JULES: Parole officer? Um... maybe I should call someone. PAT: Yes, call together my team... team Pat. Or maybe I should pick something more dramatic like Team Washington. Makes me sound like I'm a politician or something. JULES: Are you a politician? PAT: No, but I need that crowd. You going to help me? JULES: Well... would these people be your employees? Or would they be a part time posse? PAT: Part time would work... I'd just like them around at certain key times like school reunions, family gatherings and court dates... I need someone to cheer me on... I need someone who has my back. I need to be supported. I want to feel like I'm important and that I matter. JULES: Actually, I think that's what most people want. PAT: Then maybe this is the start of new business... or a revolution! We could rent out the part time posse to other people with low self-esteem like me and help build them up. That will give them a nice little boost at key times in their lives. JULES: Okay, I see what you're saying. I'm starting to dig this. PAT: So what do you say? You going to help me fund my crowd? JULES: Well... I am in this band and we play every Friday night and not many people come. If I could rent them every Friday... PAT: There you go... crowd... funded. Part time posse plan in motion. JULES: You just need to fill out this online form. PAT: Online? JULES: On your computer. PAT: I don't have one. JULES: Do you have a smart phone? PAT: I don't trust smart gadgets. JULES: That explains why you didn't know about crowdfunding. I'll help with the online form then... any other questions before we get started? PAT: Yeah... I'm curious about those news programs that you can talk to... where you can become the friends of the newscasters? I really like the morning news team on channel 13. I'd love to socialize with them. JULES: I'm not sure I've heard of that. PAT: You know... social media. JULES: Oh! Well... um.... let's tackle your crowdfunding first. Then we'll... um... figure out the next one. PAT: Then you gotta tell me how to keep people from googling me. That sounds creepy. JULES: All in good time my friend. All in good time.

  1. PAT
    I want to look important and if I have a crowd following me around, that will make everything think there’s something special about me.

    I think that the word everything should be replaced with everyone.

  2. Hey your blog is very nice, such useful information you are sharing. I really like your blog the information is very accurate and if you want to know more about free ad posting service, there is another website with best information.

  3. I like your blog, I think it is quite different concept but quite knowledgeable but I am aware with one more website which is famous for Free Classified Ads Posting Sites


  4. Getting to the absolute basics, we know:
    Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or a venture by raising money from a large number of people, especially via the internet. These people are called investors, and they can contribute any small amount of money depending on their capabilities. It targets individual donors.
    Fundraising is seeking financial support for a cause or a charity. It reaches more audience because Someone who starts a fundraiser campaign has a lot of followers/support and the supporters persuade their networks to garner more reach.
    There is a misconception that fundraising is more effective as compared to crowdfunding. However, the power of Internet, social media, virality and trends make crowdfunding campaigns more successful as opposed to traditional fundraisers. Did you know over US$34 billion was raised during 2015 using
    crowdfunding in India Milaap.

  5. Such an amazing blog about the Crowdfunding Project and I really appreciate you work which you have done well.
