Kickstarter is at the forefront of the crowd funding revolution. For a 5% fee (plus processing fees of 3-5%), Kickstarter provides a great platform for raising interest in funding your project. The list of successes is too long to mention — sites like Kickstarter are increasingly the way creative works are financed. As of this writing, they’ve raised over $10,000 for over 13,000 musicians worldwide. Their platform is the very model of an exemplary user experience. Their mobile app is great for keeping on top of your campaign. Keep your “backers” interested with updates, and benefit from the large community of altruistic people already actively backing.
