Hi guys,

We have launched our project on Indiegogo:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fans ... 16463846#/

We have a social network for football fans, while the idea is niche based but it is unique and has wide audience.

Advice and feedback will be appreciated,
thanks

It's a cool project a bit like Espnfc.com - but overall the network will be free? If you're offering rewards which consist of an account upgrade and a tshirt, then there's not much value in the that for backers.

If they were given options like X number of days adverts with Analytics tracked stats, then there might be some traction.

The thing is you're competiting against HUGE sites, plus with football there's copyrights on who can publish the data and post photos...it's pretty tight (Talking from experience as I ran a football site years ago).

Best of luck.

Thanks for feedback.
Yes the website is free, we didn't have better ideas for the Perks, I know they may look not very attractive, but what else can you offer in a free website?

We offer permanent listing in contributors page, this means that the contribute will have lifetime traffic to hist contact info (for 250+ donations) .. but maybe that is not explained well in our page.

The competition in Football topic is intense indeed, but in our unique niche (social football) it is weak so we will take advantage on that, but we have to run huge awareness campaign to build audience.

Best Regards,
WeLoveFootball

That's true, but I think Kickstarter isn't the right route for you to get funding. An Angel Investor or sponsorship might be best for your case, but you need some live site to show them and explain your work history and experience relating to getting it done.

There's no value to be on your contributors page, it doesn't mean much.

But in terms of copyrights and being allowed to show off matches, photos and analysis - not sure you'd be allowed.
