Hi Terry

Please don't , zero is very bad specially for a project that is doing well, something is wrong, I have a feeling if google has them marked as spam even though they have a gmail account then everyone does,

I would expect at least one or two customers who are already members of the Backershub that pledged to switch to a $1 or more reward and take advantage of the discount, but nope nothing,

It's like they just take the money and don't do anything,

I'd like to second this.

Flicking through this thread and a worrying number of single posters popping up to champion this service and talk of how its founder walks on water.

Every single one of these operations shouts 'SCAM' to me. I wouldn't go anywhere near any of them.

The only currency I recognise is $$$ of pledges to my campaign. All of these PR/Marketing firms talk of a currency (page views/posts/emails) that they can (and do) manipulate to an extraordinary degree. Bot networks and proxy accounts are everywhere now - you only have to look back through your traffic and see how it moved through the internet to realise this.

Exactly but still i have to be honest, i was shocked , I mean $0?! wow just wow is all i'm gonna say and then he has the nerve to tell me my project received " Thousands of opens" ?! when kickstarter actually gives you a tracker not to mention the fact that I have vimeo videos embedded on purpose just so that I can get more detailed info on view counts and countries viewing etc...

And then straight lied to me and told me that the other project "received traction" , the first reply, the owner told me he wasn't sure there was no way to check, here is the most recent message I got...

so here is solid proof from two project owners for anyone in doubt:

Link to project : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/loopycases/loopy-the-worlds-first-case-to-stop-the-droptm

So as you all see two fully funded projects one gets zero the other with almost 3000 backers doesn't even get half the money it invested

what a joke

I wish we had known about BackersHub when we were trying to fund the TekTuk - we would have definitely done better than just squeaking by!
We will DEFINITELY be using BackersHub when we launch our campaign for the TeTuk mini next year!

Thanks! It was a pleasure serving you guys - our Backers were really excited.

Cheers,

When I launched Kickstarter I was inundated with solicitations on crowd funding help. I choose BackersHub because it was straight forward and made sense. Dwight is hands on and stays involved to make sure you get the attention you need.
I ordered the top package and instantly received over 4,000 dollar boost in pledges! I ordered a second one later to boost the campaign and received another 3-4,000 thousand. For a minimal investment BackersHub worked great for my project. It would have been tough without there help! They will create the traffic and that is what is needed.

Can you provide a link to your successful project on Kickstarter?


Clay Project was Stag Design which could be viewed here - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/st ... collection

You requested that we promote your project and we decided it would be best if we didn't. The reason we did not push your project is because we did not feel it was a great fit for our community.

Hope all is well!

Cheers,

Dwight from BackersHub
