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 (or find me on Twitter as @artscrowdfundng).

The level of planning required to get rewards set up, line up stakeholders and do communications strategies is so crucial to a successful campaign, and that was really reinforced by working with Jo. We realised a crowdfunding campaign is about bringing all your stakeholders on a journey: from identifying who your audience is and what they want to support, to our very first campaign planning session where we harnessed the enthusiasm of our staff and volunteers, to creating advocates and donors across a range of areas.

As a result of our campaign, we have created a community of advocates who are excited about the Museum’s collection and future plans. The success of the crowdfunding campaign also inspired our trustees into becoming committed advocates, confident in asking for donations from friends, family and colleagues. Asking for help can be one of the most powerful tools.

Jo is absolutely incredible. If you are considering doing any form of crowdfunding, you need Jo by your side. period! She is not only incredibly lovely to work with, but also has a way of breaking mammoth-size tasks into small manageable steps that anyone can follow. Thanks to Jo’s help I have not only reached my goal but exceeded it by 34%! I am so grateful to Jo and simply can’t recommend her enough.

I got 150% return on my investment; you’re lovely and very good at what you do. Most of our backers were not friends nor family of mine and I am sure that without your help I would’ve never reached any of them, so to put it simply the campaign would’ve failed without you. I would’ve never thought about approaching LatAm businesses if you hadn’t suggested it and even if you had I’d been too scared to approach them without you almost literally holding my hand through it. Connecting with them was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. Thank you.

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.

I was happy with the project story and materials I’d created but feared we wouldn’t get it in front of enough pairs of eyes! An experienced consultant to help strategise and then create effective assets is very valuable. In my case celebrity/influencer endorsement didn’t translate to many backers; with a niche product like mine you need to communicate on a deeper level with the ‘true fans’. It’s not a volume game. The most useful thing I learned was the frequency and variety of ways one needs to talk about the campaign in the different stages – and the most significant outcome was simply that it got over the line and we were able to manufacture our run of DVDs.  It was a straightforward goal and we succeeded!
