Just launched a Kickstarter or IndieGoGo campaign and looking for help? While there are good and professional agencies, some people see crowdfunding as a great opportunity to scam you.
Make sure to do your due diligence. Most of the Kickstarter or Indiegogo scams can be easily discovered by checking the age of the domain and site structure.
Sites such asand are brand new and a scam. And while the site is older, we still have to find the first, real and positive review for crowdfundmafia or backersclub.com.
Crowdfundclicks offers a fixed fee + %. They market themselves as the number one social media marketing agency for crowdfunding since 2013. They bought an expired domain on 25.05.2017 and started their scam in May 2017. All reviews are fake and they create(d) their own reviews and “articles”. Take a closer look. They send bot traffic to your campaign. And that’s the only thing you will receive.
The scam artist behind crowdfundclicks creates new websites every x months,was their previous site (exact same setup), as well as crowdfundsocial, recently beyondbuzz .com (fake reviews, podcast video is created and ordered on Fiverr; there was never a campaign nor monthly podcast, they are not a shark tank agency nor did they very work with them, etc) , , soocial.media and many more.
Gogoboosters offers backer lists, media lists, etc. Non of the backers permitted to collect or share their email. Using them equals spamming. Kickstarter can close your campaign by sending out spam emails. Chances that a backer will see your spam email are slim, chances that someone will back your campaign after receiving a spam email, zero.
is a new website as well (June 2016), using Fiverr gigs (I have the email from the owner to prove it) that generate fake traffic (bots). The campaigns they worked with never worked with them.
And then there is Backercity. Based on the well-known backerclub (scam), they created another mediocre same-style website which is a few months old. Backercity does do not have any real backers, they do not distribute a campaign relevant newsletter and they do not have a real backers platform. When entering your email, you will receive a weekly e-mail directing you to their e-commerce site. And that is it. All reviews, all campaigns they worked with? Fake. All campaigns listed ended long before they actually launched their website just a few month ago.
