A while ago I created Help Me Fund It, a web site that tried to raise extra bunce for creative projects using a similar principle to those cashback shopping sites you see advertised on TV. It didn’t really work, if I’m honest (poor UI, I suspect), so I pulled the plug on it late last year.
It irked me that I had such a good domain name not going to any good use, so I’ve reinvented the site as a straight crowd funding site for UK based projects.
If you, or someone you know, might be interested in doing a crowd funding campaign, please check it out at http://helpmefundit.com and see if it might fit the bill. It would be great to get a few campaigns going on there soon to really test it out (I’ve done extensive testing already).
It uses a flexible, keep what you are pledged, even if you don’t reach your target model (a la Indiegogo). It’s free to list a project on the site, and there’s an 8% charge for unsuccessful campaigns that don’t reach their goals, but, as an incentive, if you do reach the goal, we’ll give you 3% back as a reward (to make it the standard 5%).
It would be great if you could help me spread the word about the site.
