    If you don't know what kickstarter is, it's a site where you can get projects funded.

    I am an indie electronica artist, and I am trying to get the money together to get my first proper album released.

    What I need is mass exposure for the project. I already have promotions going for it, but what I need is a real pro that can bring in the traffic to get the project funded. Any tips on making it more interesting would probably be helpful as well.

    Since I obviously have little money right now I need someone willing to work on a "you get paid, when I get paid" basis.

    NOW, before you click away I am offering 250$ if the project get's it's 5000$ funding. PLUS 50% of anything past the funding goal. That's promotion money well spent.

    So it it goes 1000$ over, you make 750$. You will literally get paid based on how well you do the job.

    I am an underdog people can root for, people love an underdog. The indie artist taking on the world. That is my contribution to this arrangement. My story.

    There are artists on there that have gotten over funded by more than 600%. (you would make 12,750$ if it did) While I don't expect that, I figure with one of you pro traffic guys backing me up, we do have a shot. I get my funding, you get a really nice pay day. Can't get better than that.

    Sorry, I realized my figuring was off. Plus, more detail would probably be helpful to helping you determine if this is worth your time and risk. And yes I am aware this is not the usual kind of job, but the potential payout for you is as good as your ability to earn it.

    My project is for 5000$, so your job would be to bring enough people to get that amount of funding, of which I lose up to 10% to kickstarter and amazon payment fees. So the most I could pay at that amount and still have the funding I need is 250$. That is in fact cutting into my promotion budget, but taking a cut in promotion funds for the album in return for getting the funding in the first place is jolly good.

    However, anything past 5000$ is pure gravy to help the whole thing along, so I am happy to split that with whoever took on my job 50/50.

    Here is where my math was wrong, If the job was funded to 600% that's 30,000$. I lose as much as 3000 right away, so we drop to 27,000. Take out the first 5000, but add 250 for you, then split the 22,000 left and you end up with "only" 11,250$. Not bad for a couple of weeks work.

    The major catch is I need someone who is good enough to do this, and it needs to be done in the next 18 days. The project ends 9:42 Feb 28th.

    These things have really taken off on reddit in the past, so experience with that site would be useful. Bottom line is I have a story, a hook, what I need is people.

    So if you have the skills to deliver the traffic, you can bank a good pay day here.

    You can find the project by searching "kickstarter acidhedz". I have updates up on album artwork, and songs changes already so there is content to work with done.
