Strategic crowdfunding is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Fotofund, a crowdfunding platform exclusively for photo-based works. We’ll be working with Fotofund crowdfunders to teach them how to market their crowdfunding campaigns ultimately increasing their chance of success to meet their goal.
Our most recent successful campaign is Super Sikh, a new comic book series crowdfunded through Kickstarter. We helped the crowdfunders raise $22,511 (450% of their original goal of $5,000) in 30 days by identifying their target market and developing a successful pre-launch marketing campaign.
Through our partnership with Fotofund, we’re creating a digital training program that will teach Fotofund crowdfunders how to be successful using the same tools that we used on Super Sikh. Crowdfunders will also have access to us through a private Facebook group devoted exclusively to Fotofund campaigners.
Fotofund was created by the Lucie Foundation, a non-profit devoted to the advocacy of photography worldwide. As the newest program of the Lucie Foundation, Fotofund shares Lucie’s mission to discover and cultivate emerging talent and promote the appreciation of photography. Their goal is to develop a dedicated network of photographers and photo enthusiasts who will come together in support of one another and the photography community at large.
Much like Indiegogo, Fotofund offers both a fixed and flexible structure and charges either a 4% or 7% commission on the funds raised depending on which funding model is selected. Fotofund reinvests 4% of all funds raised in the photography community through expanded Lucie Foundation programming, including additional artist grants, continued development of existing programs such as Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) and SNAPSHOP!, and an educational exhibition space meant to further engage the public.
To kick off our partnership with Fotofund, we’re offering a sweepstakes for a chance to work one-on-one with us on your next crowdfunding campaign. The winner will be entered to win a free full-service crowdfunding marketing campaign package with Strategic Crowdfunding proven to raise thousands of dollars.
Sweepstakes entries will be accepted through 12 p.m. EST March 9, 2015. Sign up today for your chance to work with us!
