I read an article yesterday about Amanda Palmer, a singer who got herself hugely crowd-funded on Kickstarter. Does anyone have any real knowledge or personal experience with crowd-funding? I'm a trans-girl working to hone my writing skills so I can put together an all-trans band and maybe take it somewhere. The time is soooo right for this!! Being trans, I'm basically a part of the "LGBT" community (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans and nowadays countless others). The LGBT is very good about supporting its members and generally sticking together. There's friction, but we're generally good about it. And generally affluent. And generally have very few members writing hot original LGBT-themed music for us - and somewhere right around ONE hard rocking all-trans bands currently doing it. I think the LGBT is my built-in audience, and would be perfect crowd-funding donors of LGBT projects in general. If you can reach 'em. I won't even tell you how bad my financial situation is right now. Let's just leave it at this: I badly need it. In general (LGBT or not), how do you beg your peeps for money? What do they need to ensure that their donations are going to a legitimate cause or project, rather than just dope? Or are these sites disappearing because of dope money and other scams?
greateralexander posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHello Songstuff community! I'm new to the forum and the best way I can currently introduce myself is by asking you to view my kickstarter and watch the video of a day in my life. I'd love to know your thoughts about my pledges. It is on the last leg of finishing. I have a really enticing kickstarter with a great video and I'm about 7% away from the goal. I've been reaching out to people organically, via e-mail/twitter/facebook. I have about 45 hours left. You can pledge a dollar and get the whole album. Are there any last minute pushes that you suggest? Here is the link: http://www.kickstart...-album-positive Take care, Alexander http://www.greateralexander.com
