Kickstarter Alternatives, Homecoming Dance Show

Quick update to my recent posts about starting a Kickstarter campaign. I’m not doing it. But I will. Just not through Kickstarter. I’m currently looking for alternative ways to fund my next, big project. If you’re wondering why I’ve decided against Kickstarter, here’s a blurb from their site’s “new project” set-up page:

If your project is successfully funded, Kickstarter will apply a 5% fee to the funds raised, and Amazon will apply credit card processing fees (between 3-5%). If funding isn’t successful, there are no fees.

I promise I’ll blog about this later. In the meantime, stay tuned. I expect to have this all sorted out within the week.

Last thing: I’m performing at this year’s Glenbard East Homecoming Dance! This year is special. Read why.

  1. Interesting read and I understand your concerns when you mention the high fees and alternative to Kickstarter. Crowdfunding through some of the bigger platforms can be costly, especially if the campaign produces to be quite successful. If you can generate your own exposure and target audience, you may think to do it on your own. Take a look at some of the benefits of using Crowdfunding software from Thrinacia, if it’s an option you may consider for future campaigns. There are very affordable entry level monthly subscription plans.
