Hello applicant. We are a new publishing company that seeks to empower young men through self help and encouragement to improve their lives through visual, written and audio publishing.
This book has a written skeletal, but it's not complete. That's the reason for this campaign.
We want to find someone very experienced in running Kickstarter campaigns who might help us produce a very professional Kickstarter that will attract best possible funding.
- You will need to be able to show us proof that you have created Kickstarter campaigns successfully before that got the target funding
Our new project, "The Gentlemen's Experience," is a new book we are looking to raise $10,000 in crowdsourcing funds. With this $10,000 we are planning to utilize the funds to edit, publish, print (1,000) paperbacks, market and begin our tour this year (2016) of Historical Black private and state universities and/or colleges for our new Etiquette book for young men.
Our target audience will be young men who will attend Historical Black private and state universities and/or colleges for our new Etiquette book for young men.
This book project is our first milestone of the Gentlemen’s Experience collection which will comprise of a series of books, print material, e-learnings, functional user interface website/app and curriculum.
This book “The Gentlemen’s Experience,"will target a audience of young men from the ages of 17-25 in the areas of social, formal and personal life occasions and also aide the same young men with information to enable them to make wise and mature decisions on how to live a stable life in society by using proper manners and etiquette. We will focus our text and written, spoken and video content on the infamous Renaissance Men with a Social Conscience by President Robert M. Franklin Jr. of Morehouse College for Men in Atlanta, Georgia.

Who are we ?Introduce us, our team, and any similar work we've done
What are we planning to make?
The more details, the better. Sketches, samples, prototypes — it all helps backers get as excited as you are.
Where did this project come from?
Tell people how we got the idea, and how much we’ve accomplished so far. Sharing the project’s history helps others understand the kind of work we do, and how we go about it.
What’s our plan, and what’s your schedule?
Lay out a clear, specific timeline for what backers can expect.
What’s our budget?
A simple breakdown lets people know we’ve thought things through and have a workable plan, so they can trust us to use funds wisely.
Why do you care?
Tell people why we’re passionate about our project and committed to making it happen.
We gathered these questions from several crowdsourcing websites that you will need to answer for us with our content of course.
We will work with the awarded applicant of this role to establish a realistic timeline and weekly milestones for this marketing and funding plan. Our set goal is to have the $10,000 fully funded in 60 days or no later than the first week of school in August.
We will provide and design the art work resources for what ever you need. We will create and design the content design work for whatever social media outlet you feel would be the best to use.

Bonus*** In addition if we successfully hit our crowdfunding goals we will give you a bonus of 5% of the crowdfunding pot. That means in addition to what we pay you through Upwork, to do the requested work you will receive 5% of the total crowdsourcing funds we receive after the crowdsourcing fees have been taken out of course. We also will give you first rights of refusal for our next planned book if our relationship remains constant and you help us to reach our goals in a timely manner.
**If you have made this far and read everything, please use "crowdfunding" on the start of your application.
This opportunity can be as big as you create it to be. If you have the skills and talent to raise capital in this short period of time, we have several other projects that we can definitely pay you more.
