What Are Backers?

The crowdfunding definition of a “backer” when it comes to crowdfunding is basically, “customer”. Your backers are essentially the people who support your idea. They are the ones that look the most forward to your great idea. They are the friends, family, and referrals that you get who graciously donate to your campaign. 

Sometimes, it can be hard to find backers. After all, take a look at any major crowdfunding site, you are liable to find many great campaigns, but for whatever reason, some of these campaigns just never see the light of day despite how great and noble many of them are. 

Crowdfunding Definition of campaigns

There are plenty of great and wonderful campaigns everywhere you turn. You might see a campaign to revitalize a community rec center on one side of the website, a medical bill fund on another area of the same site, and a church mission trip fund somewhere else.

These are great causes, but each one of us has only a certain amount of money. If we were all millionaires, it would be easy to donate our money freely and give like there was no tomorrow. The problem is that many of us have only a little money to give. Many of us have a big heart and wish we could just give and give to all the great causes that are out there. 

But, it’s just not feasible. 

What if there was a platform that featured built in backers? Sounds pretty radical, right? Well, think again, because this might just be the greatest idea that crowdfunding has ever seen. 

Why Are Built in Backers A Good Idea? 

Well, think of it this way. Not all campaigns get to see the light of day. In other words, life is not fair. It is unfortunate because so many of these campaigns are for really wonderful causes.

I think we can all attest to having seen a really good campaign for a really noble cause but feeling bad for the campaign owner when they only have one or two donations so far. 

Crowdfunding definition of platform fees

Another important thing to consider in our Crowdfunding Definition. When you are getting your campaign off the ground is the cut that the platform will take from your donations. 

And even beyond that think of this: What if you do not fulfill the campaign’s goal and the monies go back to their backers? 

Then you are really out of luck! For example, Kickstarter is a popular platform for the creative and artistic pursuits. Many great video games and card games have come out as a result of this platform.

And plenty of them have not.

Kickstarter has an “all or nothing” approach to fundraising. Nobody is charged for a pledge toward a project unless the goal for funding is reached. This is done so that creators of the content in question have the budget they envisioned before they move forward.

Ergo there is less risk involved-that is, backers are not charged, and creators do not have to create a lower quality product that does not meet the expectations of the ones who desired it.

While we respect Kickstarter for its ideas, we believe that everybody deserves a fair shot to make their dreams a reality. 

What Benefits Can Built in Backers Provide? 

Not everybody can have the luxury or the good luck of having a venture capitalist or an angel funding experience when it comes to their business.

In case you don’t know, angel investors are wealthy people who invest in smaller size companies in hopes they will become the same size as Google, McDonald’s or some other mega corp. If you are lucky enough to get one’s attention, this can mean you get a much-needed cash boost for your company. They will do this in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity.

Venture capitalism, on the other hand, is a form of financing that firms or funds provide to emerging businesses that have a potential for high growth. Venture capitalists do this to get equity, or some ownership in the companies they make an investment in. VC investments have high failure rates, making them hard to get for most startups.

Says ForbesMagazine, less than one percent of those seeking funding through angel or VC funding are successful.

Keeping this in mind, the case for a crowdfunding platform with backers that are built right in becomes even more important than ever. It ensures that everybody will get a fair chance to shine and grow their business.
