I thought it would be interesting to try an IndieGoGo campaign today. Haven’t done that yet.
I intentionally chose one that’s struggling ($1 raised so far), but seems to be a pretty decent idea. Bild, is a “networking application…whose mission is to foster productive relationships between passionate individuals of a like mind, from varying, associated and unassociated, professional backgrounds.”
…Yeah, I don’t really know either.
Now, I’m not saying different copy would skyrocket their funding, but I certainly don’t think it would hurt. Best I can decipher, it’s like LinkedIn for creatives, with the goal of matching mentors with up-&-coming hotshots. I like the thought behind it. Hopefully they pull through.

Overall: OK. I think they add clarity, but they’re not great. The themes are decent, but nothing made me jump up and high-5 myself.
Funding sites may be an interesting area to tinker with again.
Lessons: I picked this out last night to let the idea simmer. As I was drifting off to sleep, the “meet your mentor” line hit me and I had to get up to write it down. Now I’m going to start sleeping with post-its at nearby. When I remember, I’m going to choose categories the night before.
I also had a few lines hit me in the shower.
Feel free to visualize that prettier than it actually is.
I got stuck with 19 left. Thank the maker for templates.
Time: 2 30-minute sessions. The usual. I imagine I’ll plateau there for a bit. I knocked out 34 lines in the first 20 minutes before using formulas.
