In this video clip, Brad Yasar, board member at Yasar Corporation, explains how to best prepare for a crowdfunding campaign. The key is taking the time to build and nurture an audience because the bigger your audience, the easier the campaign is going to be. Reach out months before a launch date is even set and start engaging with players in the space who could be interested in your product.

A well-engaged audience can make or break your campaign.”
