I have a social enterprise that empowers women and run a coaching practice to pay my bills. I currently reach a network of 25000 (15000 on social media). In order to increase my reach I could increase my online chat show to weekly publishing, but need funding to manage professional quality good enough for commercial radio. Weekly shows will get me into an even bigger platform extending my market to 80000 more women on yet another social enterprise business. PS - Krowdster.co estimate a 12% success rate with kickstarter based on my social media platform to raise 35 000. I need $32000 for a years production at professional levels. need to know who to approach internationally with a similar ethos, who seeks exclusive sponsorship, has a customer centric approach with the intention to create a positive attitude in the midst of my target audience 45 year old women entrepreneurs in Africa
Your focus shouldn't be on raising money and launching the show. Your focus should be producing a great show.
I launched my own business podcast Shoulders of Titans with only a few hundred dollars.
Here's what you need:
A voice talent to create an intro and extro. ($200)
Editing software: (FREE)
Sennheiser PC 8 USB ($50)
Show Graphics & Artwork. $20
Get a few shows going, then you can go pitch sponsors. Start small. Forget 52 episodes. Let's focus on just getting the first 5 episodes up and running.
Don't let this hold you back. It has nothing to do with how much resources you have, it has to do how resourceful you are.
