TubeStart Readies for Launch, a Kickstarter for YouTube Creators
Crowdfunding is an increasingly popular way to fund a project, and now there’s a crowdfunding site just for YouTube creators. TubeStart will launch August 20, with the goal of helping YouTubers fund a project or create a steady income stream. In return for their investments, backers get exclusive videos, bonus content, or the ability to see new work first.
Unlike Kickstarter or Indiegogo, TubeStart offers a subscription plan that helps video creators earn regular income. If creators are looking to finance a one-time project, however, they can set up their pitch that way, as well. Advertising alone isn’t enough to fund most YouTube creators, so TubeStart could become a popular alternative source of funding.
When it launches, TubeStart will be open to video-makers in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Members are free to launch campaigns for between $500 and $500,000. If setting up a subscription campaign, they can ask for between $5 and $50 per month. While members will pay fees to TubeStart for its service, early birds who sign up before the August 20 launch won’t need to pay any fees or commissions.
