It’s been an exciting first week on Kickstarter for the YuVue team. As we were planning our launch, we thought the Technology/Apps category was the place for us, because our vision is for everyone – both pro shooters and enthusiasts alike – to use our app so they can protect, share and earn revenue from their imagery.
But when we got feedback from photographers that it was a little hard to find us, we moved to Kickstarter’s Photography category. And just 24 hours later we became the third most popular project in that section… out of 6,083 projects!
It turns out this change of neighborhood has brought us closer to photographers, videographers, and GoPro shooters across the board. After all, they’re the ones who have invested most in their passion and are eager to get their work in front of media companies and to get paid for the photos and videos they create and share on social media. Thanks to them, and to the outpouring of support we received yesterday, we are over a third of the way to our funding goal!
And by making a donation starting at only $25 – backers can secure their username before the crowd and have early-adopter access and exposure.
We’ll be taking our message to the photography blogs and journalists this week and are asking all of our followers to help spread the word!
