Hello Everyone,

Disclaimer: I am a Kickstarter creator. I am not selling a service. Just trying to inform other creators of a good one.

I know a big question when launching a campaign is "how do I boost traffic or get in front of people?" This is now my 3rd Kickstarter campaign and I have tried a few promotion services. None of them worked before today. The day before yesterday Mark the co-founder of BackerClub contacted me via Twitter. He did the typical "Check out my website" pitch but I noticed something different. He already tweeted my campaign to not only his followers but also BackerClub followers telling them "Everyone go back it." I thought that was awesome so I checked out BackerClub. Turns out they have a pretty good following and I liked their business model. You do not have to pay for their service until your project funds. If your project doesn't fund you don't owe them anything. So I figured what could hurt and submitted my project to them. It was approved and they promoted it yesterday. As of today I have received 101 backers for $3,476 from BackerClub and they keep coming in. The surge of activity sky rocketed me to #1 in the food category and top 20 live projects overall on Kickstarter. So BackerClub works. I have seen some people say that they didn't get anything from BackerClub. Well... if your campaign isn't done well or your product isn't great then nobody will by it regardless of the promotion. BackerClub can only put your campaign in front of active backers. It is your job to make a great campaign that makes the backers get out their wallets.

Hope this helps someone,
Brian

Wow great review about BackerClub! Mark's been in touch with me too, he replies fast and seems to care about Crowdfunding which is important.

We also back and promote campaigns, even if client's don't want to use our services.

Good luck with the Seally Cap!

Great, thanks for sharing. As actively doing a campaign on Kickstarter, we are also considering using their service. How will they receive their commissions? Does the back's fund goes to them first or otherwise?

Thanks

I think it works that if they can get you proven backers > you need to pay a % of the backer's amount and $379 if you have a successful campaign.

I've written to them personally about a client who had a backer from them, the backer refunded > but do they still have to pay the fee? No reply....
