Kickstarter CrowdFunding

Kickstarter Crowd Funding

Popular crowdfunding site
 Kickstarter is starting to catch on in a BIG way since it first launched in 2009. Over 15,000 successful campaigns and counting. Kickstarter has become such a big success because of their philosophy in giving something back to your contributors in the form of Rewards. Something special, unique and limited. This part will be a big part of a successful campaign if you choose kickstarter for your crowdfunding source.

What products/ideas does Kickstarter.com accept?

 Kickstarter is a great resource for several creative opportunities. Below is a list of categories that they will accept for consideration to run a crowd funding campaign 

   .Art
  • Comics
  • Dance
  • Design
  • Fashion
  • Film & Video
  • Food
  • Games
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Publishing
  • Technology
  • Theater


  • Does Kickstarter accept donation, charity, investment or loan type campaigns?

     No. kickstarter.com is strictly for creative based ideas
    and does not have categories for those types of crowd funding campaigns.

    I Have A Million Dollar Idea. Can I raise it in the next 60 days using KickStarter.com?

    You certainly can. It's all up to you and your creative ideas. A few have already made over a $1,000,000.00 and many more will follow. The thing with Kickstarter is if you set you goal to high and don't reach it, you get nothing, Nada, Zero. Your funding campaign needs to reach it's minimum financial goal that you establish first before you will get your start up capital pledged to you. If it goes over your stated goal, GREAT, it will keep accumulating more money until your funding campaign runs out. This is to make sure you are being realistic in your start up goals.

    Does Kickstarter accept any/all funding campaigns as long as it fits in a category?

     No. If you want to be successful in crowdfunding on this site or any other, you need to spend a good deal of planning first. Have everything in place and ready to go before you take it live to the world. A lot of folks come up with a really good idea and try and put it all together in a single night. This is perhaps the biggest reason Kickstarter.com has a 40% decline rate in the campaigns they accept to be seen on their site. If you are declined, that's o.k., go back and make it unique, Make It YOURS! Be realistic and be willing to give better Rewards to your contributors.   

    Who Can Start a Kickstarter Project?




     To be eligible to start a Kick starter campaign you will need to satisfy the requirements of Amazon Payments on Amazon.com
    You need to be a US resident and at least 18 years of age with a social security number (or EIN), a US bank account, US address, US state-issued ID (driver’s license), and major US credit or debit card.

    How Much Does Kickstarter.com Cost?


    It's 100% free to start a project. Once you register you can start to design your campaign immediately. A very simple template that saves all your work until it's just right and ready to go. The only time you will have to pay for Kick starters services is if your funding campaign reached it's minimum goal. In that case Kickstarter will take care of collecting all funds pledged to you, subtract a 5% fee and sent you the rest. That's it!
