Crowdfunding creative work

Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Crowdfunder, Patreon, Ko-Fi, Unbound… not sure where to start?

You may only get one shot at a successful crowdfunding campaign. I can help you make it count. Whether you need advice on how to get up and running, or full support to develop and manage your campaign, we can plan a package that works for you.

I’ve helped creators raise hundreds of thousands of pounds since 2013 to support film-making, music, festivals, writing, arts projects, even political activism. Let’s talk about how I can help – drop me a line on hello@jobreeze.co.uk (or find me on Twitter as @artscrowdfundng).

Testimonials

Jo’s pointers on key things to do and when were really useful – without her help we could well have got lots wrong as we hadn’t done it before and didn’t have time to learn the hard way. Her documentation and initial support were clear and helpful, and guided us through setting targets and what type of campaign to go with. We hit all our stretch targets and more, and the campaign showed us the clear evidence of customer loyalty we were hoping for.

It was just so good to have someone with experience and that I trusted immediately to ask questions, run my ideas past and help me to refine them. On our call every week I took at least one big thing away. Things like how to approach the stretch goal. And it gave me the impetus to just keep going. As well as keeping me sane, your support 100% helped optimise the campaign, and the decisions you helped me make meant we had more backers and ££. Having it overfunded by 50% hopefully validates the product/market fit and gives us some money to over print and really get the business off to a flying start.

As a result of our campaign, we supported the work of three female composers and have been able to secure future performances for these works and therefore more work for ourselves. That in turn has led to other composers being able to secure funding to write more music to programme alongside these new pieces. Without Jo’s comprehensive and clear support, we wouldn’t have raised the required amount. Without a shadow of a doubt. I think we’d have had to cancel our project. Which would have been devastating for us and our professional reputation.

Your campaign strategy and guidance made me feel so secure, your documents were so user-oriented and clear, the pace (while hectic) was clearly laid out and enabled me to run a team to whom both I and the workload was new: you made it feel for all of us like the mountain was a manageable one to climb. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. As a non-synchronised & part-time team, we needed to find a way to be consistent and make an impact with the campaign, without overloading anyone and while also not wasting the fundraising opportunity. Your documents and guidance were invaluable, the templates really helped visualise what was in the main a lot of anxious overthinking on my part, and your overview of the structure of each week of the campaign was just – well, amazing.
