Hey Hitman,

You definitely do - every project is different. We have a nice niche of projects that we like to focus on that we promote. BackersHub was created as a community for Backers to get deals on awesome projects - it wasn't built for any one project in particular, however it was built to be a curated community helping creators get an extra boost.

Ultimately, we are just one of the many tools creators should be using in their marketing strategy to get targeted traffic.

Cando wrote:Dear Kickstarters,

We are the CANDO Heater, Hot Plate & Fondue Team.

We have been using BackersHub from the start of our campaign and it was really helpful. Dwight was really generous and kind in every aspect. He helped us getting backers for our project at the beginning and in the end. Arround 35% of our backers were helping our project thanks to "BackersHub". We are truly thankful and we will colaborate in our further projects for sure.
Best wishes to all Kickstarters!


Thanks Cando team,

It was a pleasure!

Cheers,

Dwight from BackersHub

Any creator that leaves a review can be googled and contacted outside of this forum for confirmation.

My Project was fully funded after 13 btw

I am posting this as a warning to anyone planning on using these guys, first yah yah yah Dwight is very professional and courteous, but....

I should have knows when one of his emails was put in my spam folder with a warning something in the line of too many people marked that email as spam anyways i didn't listen...

regardless, i Had a big ZERO from his site nothing, not even a single Backer has reduced his pledge to take advantage of the discount I offered,

Now if I had a project that was stuck at 2% or even 30% ok I would understand but wow, 0? LOL

so you have been warned, save your money and buy some google or facebook adds or burn it before you send it these guys way, what a joke!


You did receive a Backer from us, plus thousands of views from our newsletter - our Backers just weren't interested in the deal. That is no fault of our own - as we can not force Backers to jump in on a deal they have no interest in. We try our hardest to select projects we believe our community will respond well too. We even sent you an email offering to push your project again in which you did not respond.

FYI I contacted the other project owner before posting this, guess what? ZERO!!!!


Your claim is actually false, LoopyCase - the other project that was feature with your project did receive Backers from us and we are working with them in promoting their pre-order in the next couple of weeks. Please understand that every project is not going to knock it out of the park with us. This is not a reflection of us or our community, some products just aren't as good as others to our Backers.

@Dwight

You can say what you want to say, your service is worthless and I don't believe anything you say neither should anyone else, my project raised $60,000 dollars in 13 days, i got ZERO dollars from your site, I complained and you scheduled me for a "PUSH" again and guess what? ZERO!

Loopy cases raised over $130,000 and guess what, he used your service and didn't even get half what he paid you, at least I posted a screen capture of his message,

So you can keep posting under different user names with one post, you are nothing but a con artist

It's unfortunate that you feel that way - congrats with your success! We never did a second push because you never responded. We stand behind what we do here and have helped hundreds of creators raise money through our efforts - we wish you the best of luck.

LOL!

Thousands of views?! Really Dwight? I'm sorry but you do know every project creator has a Dashboard that shows the viewcount right? You do know that right? Did you happen to also know that google analytics does the same thing right? I do use Google analytics, and one more thing, you noticed how I have all these Vimeo videos embedded? You know why Dwight? So I can monitor view counts and exactly when and where they are comming from

So please don't give me that crap about how my project got thousands of views thanks to you

I find it ironic that your so called army of backers pretty much don't seem to be interested in anything but hey you know what service they're interested in Dwight? Here is a screen capture from http://backerclub.co/

Enough Said

Have a great day

Not sure what you are trying to prove? We stopped using our twitter page almost a year ago because that's not where our audience is at - as you can see from the last time we posted. We do not even offer twitter promotions in our service packages so it's funny that you even bring this up.

You are more than free to view our private FB Group which has close to 7,000 members. You can't get "fake members" in a private group, unless they are spam bots and those get reported quickly by our members.

If you think BackersHub is a scam, please do not use our services.

If you are looking to promote your project to the audience we have built and are a great fit, we are more than happy to have you.

We have helped hundreds of creators raise funding by promoting to our group. Is it going to work for everybody? Like all forms of promotion, no. We try our hardest to select the projects we believe in and have the best chance of getting our Backers attention.

This talk of scam is ridiculous and disrespectful to my team, the work we put in to grow our community and our members.
