Crowdfunding for YouTubers just got a lot easier

By Josef  Holm,  Over the past couple of months we have relentlessly worked on Tubestart v2, applying everything we’ve learned to build a game changing solution with features that will make crowdfunding much easier for every video creator and filmmaker out there.

“Tubestart v2 is a hybrid between a traditional crowdfunding platform, an ecommerce app and the next generation fanclub.”

What does this mean in a nutshell?
You’ll never again have worry about coming up with top selling perks, let alone fulfilling them. You can also get contributions to your project through Sponsored Perks from brands we partner with or get 10-50% of your project co-funded.



Crowdfunding was yesterday – Welcome to fan supported content development for digital video and filmmakers.


Tubestart v2 Features:

1. Hands Free Perk Fulfilment – Sell Merchandise Without Lifting a Finger
Without a doubt one the most exciting new features on Tubestart and a global crowdfunding innovation: Sell merchandise as perks without any work or risk involved. We have partnered with and to offer over 800 customizable perks on your project page with automated payment processing, order fulfillment and customer support.



2. Sponsored Perks – Sell And Keep 100% of the Net Profit
Crowdfunding Innovation #2: We partner with leading brands and video related service providers so you can offer great deals as perks on your project page. Sponsored perks can be tangible goods or virtual offers such as coupon codes for premium services related to online video & entertainment.

3. Co-Funding – Get 10-50% of Your Project Funded by Rumble
We have partnered with who are looking for premium video creators with projects worth funding and will support projects with 10-50% of their funding goal. The program is currently invitation only, but we will soon make the application process available to all Tubestarters.

4. More Funding Options For Less
We’ve added Pledge Funding to our funding options, so you can choose the model that best fits your project. We’ve also lowered our platform fee to 4% (8% for Flexible projects that don’t meet their goal).

5. Tablet and Smartphone Friendly Design
Although there may still be small kinks here and there, our awesome new design is fully tablet and smartphone compatible.

6. Crowdfund in any Currency
