Notes from Pozible information session

pozible-for-web-jpg_800x600fitBack in November last year I attended a really interesting Pozible crowdfunding information session in Launceston. I tweeted and made notes, but completely neglected to collate my notes, which I’m doing now for my own reference (and anyone who is interested!). While the session was specific to Pozible (and very well presented by the friendly, approachable and knowledgeable Reuben), much is also relevant for other crowdfunding platforms. So here it is (reminder, this is in reverse order of tweets – perhaps read from the bottom up!):

 

  • Undelivered rewards are surprisingly uncommon. #crowdfunding
  • Pozible charges 5% service fee on total raised IF project funds – no charge if it doesn’t. #crowdfunding

    Pozible subscription #crowdfunding model now available – could be of interest in publishing!

    As creative people, your traction is in how you tell stories; you have the advantage to involve people at a personal level. #crowdfunding

    Hee! @reubenacciano played the @KaleidoscopeTPP Pozible video because I asked a related question – he said nice things! #crowdfunding

    Research several projects similar to yours – 8-10 including a couple of unsuccessful ones (to consider what NOT to do). #crowdfunding

    <br /> </div><br /> ” data-mentions=”Krasnostein” data-you-follow=”false” data-you-block=”false”>90% of campaigns that reach 25-30% in the first week will fund – the “sheep” effect. #crowdfunding

    <br />

    <br />

    <br />

    <br />

    <br /> </div><br /> ” data-you-follow=”false” data-you-block=”false”>Heh. “I’m special” is a really popular narrative in social media. Unique rewards can be very effective, even at high price. #crowdfunding

    <br /> </div><br /> ” data-you-follow=”false” data-you-block=”false”>90% of successful Pozible #crowdfunding projects have a video as part of the project page, and these raise more money.

One thought on “Notes from Pozible information session

  1. Thanks. Our writing group is looking to use Pozible for crowd funding its next anthology. I now know attending an info session is important and that there is help available.
