Well, my JUNE experiment in crowd-funding through twitter and my fiverr.com/work2gather gigs (especially my GIFT gig :-) has begun. I don't know how much I will post, but I am trying to just add them when I can, and leaving spaces between posts. It will be interesting to me to keep track of my efforts and see how they work out.
Social media is still a strange concept to me, and I have been spending less time at Twitter than Facebook. This will help me to visit Twitter daily and watch the patterns of posts as I go. I am thinking of looking for that automatic posting software for social media. If I try this on other sites, I will need it! And the software can keep track of any responses that are produced.
I am trying to limit my efforts to Twitter and Fiverr... but I am not sure that is a great idea. I may change that for the last half of the month. That will give me time to get my website figured out... I keep mentioning work2gather.us as well...which is one of the business efforts I am trying to develop.
I would like to have enough response to deal with my immediate needs and then be able to plan for and develop the programs I would like to establish... for inmates, for missions, for Christians living in many different communities, for food issues, and more.
I have been trying to establish crowd-funding accounts at Kickstarter, FaithLauncher, GoFundMe, and any other place that will help WT to achieve its goals, or me to meet my needs. It hasn't been a full effort, but an ongoing learning effort. As my funds increase, I can hire help and accomplish more. It is that way for everything.
I guess I still need "start-up funding" and now need more that the original $50,000 I hoped to raise...and that would be for WT's goals, maybe $50K for each program, maybe more by now...a lot more. :-( I felt it would be good for me to start with that amount because it is the maximum amount I would invest in other Christian businesses through Working Together.
Well, there are many details I don't want to share here. I would be very grateful if you will pray for my quest... for GOD's blessings on my needs, my work, my efforts. Thanks.
