Crowd Funding Your Movie: Social Media Groups to Help Your Project Succeed

So what is crowd funding, Indiegogo or Kick Starter? Free money for films?
Most people  are now using crowdfunding to help make movies, web series, TV or film pilots, music albuns,
books and even start up business.
So how can you be successful?
Here are some great social groups to attract investors and fans for the success of your projects: 
Like any start up the more money you invest the more likely investors will want to put their money into your project. The more credits you have as having completed a project the higher chances that someone will want to invest in you to support you. Investors want to know if they fund your project it will be completed.
For films investors might like: comic books, movies based on books, producers who have produced before, fan based projects and great screenplays. It is true people who have a track record of producing, directing and acting have a higher chance to succeed because they have fan base already and they can get support easier.
But, if you really have something that people like from a graphic novel, new clothing line, great screenplay, great product, amazing singer you just might find your own audience who supports you to succeed. Usually signed copies of posters, artwork, t-shirts, hats, walk on roles, premier invite are extra incentives to attract investors.  But if you have a solid team: producer, director, actor, crew, screenplay with a great foundation "the product" it can succeed.
It does take a lot of work and time to promote, network and use social media to find your audience out there.  Some social media sites to support Crowd Funding projects are:

With Social Media being so prominent in today's society I think it is important for colleges to offer courses for students to learn and equally important that a proper text book be available. There is a lot to learn and as you said your text will focus on strategy which is essential to social media marketing. instagram followers hack
