Today I had a talk with my supervisor about my proceedings, followups and the concretisation of my Plan of Attack. The new PVA was posted on the 20th of June. Remarks from the last time were about the subquestions that were not well enough defined. Today when we were talking about it. It seems I need to change the main question due to changes made in the substructure of the subquestions. I need to think more about the concrete idea what I want with my main question, which can be for example: Creation of a crowdfunding campaign toolbox / Campaign movie about the course of your research and implementation.
The main question was to large
Moreover the research I’ve done so far which leads me to believe that the implementation of my findings will be way to much work for one person to do on his own. There are whole teams implemented to work on crowdfunding campaigns from what I’ve seen, heard and read so far.
When is my thesis a success?
Another thing is the success. When do I think that my thesis is a success? So in other words, how will I define that success? So that I know when I have reached it. Another question to ponder would be: What is our message? That’s indeed exactly what we have to figure out. One sentence or a few words that define our mission as a company. So that we can use that message as a tool to filter out actions that we need to take or not.
Conclusion and my follow ups
Two places where I can look for answers are Experts and having interviews with them. Which I’m currently pretty busy with, next week I’ll be speaking with a crowdfunding professional and a online marketing professional to see if I can learn something from them or to see if they have any suggestions on how to move forward with my endeavours. Also take a look at the competition how they do it. Take notes. This last one, I had not thought of yet, so this one I could pretty much benefit from. Food for thought!
