Our new crowdfunding platform gives endless possibilities for artists & makes it interesting and even more fun to be an artist.
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is an innovative method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family and customers. It has become really popular recently, especially for entrepreneurs launching a new product. Crowdfunding taps into the collective efforts of a large pool of individuals primarily online via social media and crowdfunding platforms. It is a great way to leverage your network to get greater reach and exposure.
Crowdfunding for art
It is no secret that crowdfunding is popular. One of the well-known websites is Kickstarter, which until today has funded over 100.000 projects with a launch success-rate of 36%. Our new platform Artstarter.io is a lot like Kickstarter – yet different.
Crowdfunding is a benefit for everybody
Traditionally artists make their prints before they start selling them. This can be riskful because of the priceyness of quality prints production and the risk of not having anyone willing to buy it. With crowdfunding you can do it the opposite way. Make sure people are willing to buy it and then print it. Crowdfunding is a great way to connect with your fans and let them help you fund your art.
- Reach – By using a crowdfunding platform, you have access to thousands of accredited customers who can see, interact and share your campaign.
- Presentation – By creating an Artstarter campaign, you artwork will be presented in a beautiful and accessible way for potential customers worldwide.
- Quality PR & Marketing – from launch to close, you can share and promote your Artstarter campaign through social media, newsletters, and other online marketing tactics. Furthermore, the Artboost team will be at your side all the time to support and help you with the promotion.
- Validation of your Art – Presenting your art to the masses is an excellent opportunity to validate and refine your style. As potential art lovers begin to express interest and ask questions, you’ll quickly see if there’s something missing that would make them more likely to buy in.
