News + Fraud Watch + Popular Projects is a waste of time

Although my project already crossed the 100%, I gave a try. The affiliate network actually provides a affiliate link to your project. Everytime a backer funds your project via this link, the one who shared the link gets a small amount of the funded money.
So far so good.

But I experienced there are 2 reasons why it doesnt work:

1. There is no kickbooster community. No forum nothing! So you really have to hunt yourself for people who are familliar with the programme. Ridicolous!

2. The awful slow service. The service team even has a chat. They are quick in recruiting you. Once you are in, the support simply ignores you. I try since 10 days to get my campaign listed in their market place. They seem to constanctly ignore me via email or via chat. I can see that my postings are read though.

kickbooster is not a scam. fine. but they ruin their good concept by lack of buildung up a community and providing a service that simply ignores you, once you have joined them. So kickbooster was a waste of time for me.

This company is one of MANY to contact me about using their services to help my campaign. It's insane how many of these services there are! Good to know your experience about this one

I was supposed to get some funds from Kickbooster for being a booster. Before I supported, I had some email exchanges with the 'owner'. But after that, nothing. Never got my funds. That was from many months ago. So yes, it feels like a scam to me.

Hi there,

Was that the only "PR" used or did you try any of the other ones? I recently launched a campaign and have had multiple emails from companies which seem "spamish" however I was looking at the one you mentioned (which most people here are saying was a waste lol) and also backercamp... Ive also seen many other ones like backer club, backer nation.... Just wondering if you have tried any other ones and thoughts????


Feel free to check out my recently launched Kickstarter:
