Production consultant and project manager hybrid.
UCLA Spark is UCLA's crowdfunding platform. To date, we have raised over $1 million for UCLA faculty, staff and student projects.
• Campaign Management: Spark provides multiple consultation services for our campus clients. After mapping out a successful campaign, we have 4-10 meetings with projects to train them on skills necessary for a successful campaign. Through our personalized meeting structure, we offer accountability and advice crowdfunding campaign managers would never receive fundraising solo on another platform like Indiegogo or Kickstarter. After workshopping a campaign's PR, communications, video, photography, and donor retention strategies, over 85% of our projects achieve full funding.
• Project management: We lead clients through the crowdfunding process, from video concept to post campaign stewardship. By working directly with project leaders, we help them utilize their own teams to create unique and rewarding campaigns.
• Graphic Design and Video Production: Many of our on campus clients do not have a designer or videographer on staff. To help them run their campaign, we offer graphic design services for their social media and fundraising events. In addition, we help many projects create videos for use on their project pages and wider marketing efforts.
• Digital Media Management for UCLA Spark's online presence, including social media, web design, SEO, and web analytics.
