Social Interest Freak
LASER TARGETED FACEBOOK MARKETING

TARGET FACEBOOK ADS DIRECTLY TO BACKERS

SIF is an absolutely essential tool for promoting your crowdfunding project on Facebook. It takes all the guess work out of Facebook advertising by allowing you to target backers who have a history of backing projects just like yours. For example, if you were to launch a new RPG game you could use SIF to target people who have backed that very same game.

It works by applying very very very specific filters allowing you to drill-down your Facebook targets as well as advertising cost. Crowdmonsters has used this tool successfully on all of the Kickstarters we’ve serviced and we’ve had great results of up to 1000 targeted impressions for $1 dollar per day. We’ve successfully used SIF to target market Kickstarter backers who have a history of backing multiple projects in the same niche time and time again. There is no cheaper target audience advertising.

Moon Pixlar
For "Graphics Heavy" Projects

UNLIMITED GRAPHICS FOR YOUR CROWDFUNDER

MoonPixlar Is a web based graphics application. It could be considered the “VideoMaker FX for graphics” in that you simply login to your control panel, select the images you’d like to use for your crowdfunding project and fill in the blanks just like any other template. You really can’t mess it up as everything is just designed to look good.

This is specifically designed for project creators who are not proficient with Photoshop and cannot afford to hire a graphic artist for their crowdfunding project. The primary difference between MoonPixlar and Graphics River is that with MoonPixlar you can mix and match graphics while Graphics River provides single stand-alone graphics.

Laughing Bird Logo Creator
PROFESSIONAL CUSTOM LOGOS IN MINUTES

LAUGHING BIRD LOGO CREATOR STUDIO

The Logo Creator by Laughing Bird is a program that’s simple and fun to use. It has tons of elements you can move around, mix and match and manipulate. All elements are on a transparent background by default so there is no need for cropping. The program is actually fun to use and whenever we help a new project creator and they see us using it they eventually take control and start doing it themselves.

Regardless of which niche a crowdfunding project is in, The Logo Creator Studio will have more than enough elements to choose from. The primary difference between this and MoonPixlar or Graphics River is that these are graphic elements, not photos or something that would be considered artwork.

The sizes, colors, elements and fonts are all adjustable and no experience is required to become a pro within minutes. This is a dead-simple program that takes many of the complex elements of Photoshop and makes them available to novice users in one click.

VideoMaker FX
PROFESSIONAL VIDEO CREATION IN MINUTES

MAKE PROFESSIONAL VIDEOS FOR YOUR KICKSTARTER

It’s hard to explain how amazing this software is. With absolutely no skill or graphic experience you can produce professional quality videos in minutes. It has been the most popular software listed on the JVzoo for nearly 2 years outselling all other applications. Simply choose from dozens of templates and fill in the blanks. There is literally nothing you can do to make a video look bad regardless of what niche your in. We especially like that we can move the frames around in any order and end up producing 5-10 YouTube unique and ready videos all targeting the same keyword in the same amount of time that it takes to make one.

This was also one of the first “white board” video creators before the term white board existed. At that time those who were hip to this software were commanding up to $1K for one of those videos. Even we wondered how they were created, thank goodness we didn’t bite the bullet on that! This is just one of the greatest pieces of software we’ve ever used.

HootSuite Social Media Manager
Free Social Media Promotion Tools

FREE TARGETED TRAFFIC TO YOUR KICKSTARTER

Hootsuite is by far the best free tool we’ve found for target marketing a Kickstarter project to a particular audience. Simply input the keywords related to your project, or input the title of a successfully completed Kickstarter similar to your own and Hootusite will find all social media conversations related to that project.

Next, you simply pitch your own project to their fans, these are people who backed a project similar to your own. Tell them what makes your project different, better, and more stand-out. You can post links to your crowdfunder pitch page or your promotional video. The basic version is free and Hootsuite is actually fun to use.

Graphics River
Inexpensive Professional Artwork

PROFESSIONAL ART FOR YOUR KICKSTARTER

This is a place crowdfunding creators can go to purchase just about anything they’ll need to create their Kickstarter or Indiegogo crowdfunding page. It is comprised of two primary markets. The first is Graphic River featuring Graphics of all kinds including fantasy & games. Photos, logos and even fancy fonts are available for a fairly low cost and almost all of them can be edited in PhotoShop.

Video Hive hosts the video section of Envato’s Market. It’s full of videos you can edit and use for your crowdfunder regardless of its niche. The cost is low when compared to hiring a graphic artist but as with Graphic River, some skill is required. You don’t need to be a guru to use or edit the media you’ll find in the Envato market, however you will need to have the software required to make the edits and a few brush up video tutorials wouldn’t hurt.

BuzzBundle
Powerful Social Media Promotion

THE MOST POWERFUL CROWDFUNDING TOOL

BuzzBundle is probably the most powerful tool that can be used to promote a Kickstarter project. like HootSuite, but on steroids, BuzzBundle finds conversations happening in realtime about any keyword you choose. For our crowdfunders we choose the name of competing projects or successful Kickstarters similar to ours that have been successfully funded. Buzzbundle will then go out and find all the “buzz” related to that project and post our comments, questions or opinions into those conversations.

The differences between BuzzBundle and Hootsuite are that BuzzBundle is a desktop based application while Hootsuite is a web based platform. BuzzBundle can post automatically and run 24 hours a day while Hootsuite requires manual comments. And finally, BuzzBundle posts to many more social networks, forums and popular website comment systems such as Disqus. Additionally BuzzBundle can post from multiple accounts on the same platform, for example BuzzBundle could find a conversation about your topic, post from one Facebook account and then reply to that post from other accounts. Probably the most powerful tool Crowdmonsters has ever used in regards to getting our projects funded.

SEnuke
Spread The Word About Your Crowdfunder

HUNDREDS OF LINKS TO YOUR CROWDFUNDER IN MINUTES

SEnuke is similar to BuzzBundle in its power, but works slightly different. A mainstay of SEO companies, SEnuke goes out, makes accounts, publishes your articles, videos, press releases and just about anything else you’ve got related to your crowdfunding project. It creates huge amounts of web properties referring to your crowdfunder, but what really sets it apart from other Kickstarter tools and promotional services is its ability to create local citations. If your trying to fund a local project, a project that is relevant to a particular area (such as taco truck, a bar or pizza shop) then SEnuke is a tool you should be using.

Facebook FanBoom
GO VIRAL ON FACEBOOK WITHOUT ADS

VIRAL FACEBOOK PROMOTIONS WITHOUT ADVERTISING

Facebook is big when it comes to spreading the word about your Kickstarter campaigne, and even bigger when it comes to launching your second project. Entire crowdfunders are being financed through their loyal Following on Facebook, and avoiding the commission fees of Kickstarter and Indiegogo entirely; and this is where Fanboom shines. Fanboom allows you to create dynamic posts with contests, opionion polls, photo competitions, email optins and more. These posts are beyond the typical type your message and upload a photo or video. Fanboom has taken all the programming required to create a highly interactive and viral post and made it as simple as drag and drop. In one instance we used Fanboom for a local client, a group of mariachis. The post took advantage of Fanboom’s Viral Contest Builder and the contest was “when this post reaches 1000 likes someone will receive a free band of mariachis for Mothers Day”. This allowed us to capture 1000 leads for our client’s future marketing. There is much more to Fanboom than this and it’s definately worth checking out if you’re creating a brand and want to use Facebook to promote your crowdfunding project.
