|Amanda Palmer from her net-site|
Amanda’s story moved me. Amanda Palmer will release a new album through Kickstarter, and happened to be the first raising more than a million dollar. I think the way she awarded her donors where just great:
For $1, fans could get a download of the album; for $5 a download and a PDF; for $25 a download and CD; for $50 a download and vinyl; and for $125 a download, vinyl or CD, and limited-edition art book…
While pre-ordering made up most of the project’s activity, more than $300,000 was pledged for rewards offering experiences rather than things.
For $300 you could go to a backer-only show — 397 fans chose that. For $5,000 she would play a show at your house — 34 backers chose that. For $10,000 you could have dinner with her and she would paint your portrait — two backers chose that.
Amanda has a huge fan-base, and that seems to be good for Kickstarter.
I went to Amanda’s net-site and downloaded a song. It’s actually well done — a bit rough for me — but that doesn’t indicate nothing.
∑ – Kickstarter is something to follow — and follow closely!
