How Crowdsourcing Can Work For Your Book, Film, Magazine, or Any Other Creative Venture

Welcome back to one of the more powerful video series we’ve offered here on Stage 32. For the past several weeks we’ve featured videos from Stage 32 CEO, Richard “RB” Botto, the best-selling author of Crowdsourcing For Filmmakers: Indie Film and the Power of the Crowd. Each video is powerful in it’s own right. But this one speaks to how crowdSOURCING can work for any creative venture. Whether you plan on launching your film, a book, a newsletter or magazine, a website, or enhancing your social presence, crowdSOURCING is what it takes.

Watch the video below to learn how RB learned how to crowdsource early on, using it to build an audience for his former magazine RAZOR, and how he still uses it today for every creative venture that requires boots on the ground to build an audience.
