I've backed a lot of projects on kickstarter (yes, I have a problem) and most of them get a big push at the very last second. It really doesn't make sense to me as the money doesn't go anywhere until the deadline weather you pledge initially or right before it ends, but I've heard most of the shoppers on ebay do the exact same thing.

Some of the kickstarter projects I've backed have early backer incentives. For example, if you're one of the first 500, you can preorder the product for $10. Then when it's all gone, the price goes up by $2-3 and repeats every 500. I was a late backer, so I ended up paying $19 for something that was initially $10.

I just pledged David! Best of luck!

I had never heard of Kickstart. I just looked into it and the whole setup seems a little weird

Say that David doesnt reach his goal amount by the deadline, what happens? From what Ive read, the people pledging wont be charged anything and David wont actually receive a cent?

What a waste!? Why not just raise the money on a page that will actually take what people are pledging? I mean something like 15k can still produce a good album :?

Does the site at least allow the person who is receiving the money to pledge to his own cause? Thats to say, if there is a shortfall of a few thousand by the last day, can you pledge to yourself so that way you receive the money?

I really hope you reach your goal amount David :thumbsup:

If the goal amount is not reached, the David gets nothing.

There's another "crowd funding" website called Indiegogo that lets you collect no matter how much raise. The catch is that they take a larger percentage if you don't meet your goal.

I think the main risk is that getting some things produced is too expensive unless you have sufficient numbers to fill the orders. Eventually I'll probably use one of these platforms for fundraising, but I'll probably try to raise funds independently first and instead use them for the "final push".


Shop ? Newsletter ? Youtube ? Facebook ? Twitter

Isnt there just one that lets you collect regardless and charges a flat fee?

I havent looked into it but surely there is one similar to the fundraising ones (such as everyday hero) which are near free and let you raise money


This just seems like such a shame if the goal is not met :/

Yes, if I don't reach the goal, I can actually fill the gap by borrowing the money from someone to fill the gap and then pay the money back. But I'm hoping it doesn't come to that :/

What I haven't really mentioned anywhere is that I actually have a back up plan. If the project isn't fully funded, I'm still going to make this album! Granted, it probably won't be as nice as a $15,000 studio album, but I'm determined to make the best album possible with the resources at my disposal and people who have generously offered their services to see it through. But again, that's in case the kickstarter falls through.
