First, we think crowdfunding and fan funding are slightly different. A crowdfunding site like Kickstarter is designed to take a creator from start to finish on a specific goal. Say, like making a cool photography accessory. At the end the creator delivers to “backers” that cool gear and perhaps goes on to make them for other retail customers.
Fan funding is like a tip jar. If you are a creator on YouTube, Instagram, Twitch, Twitter, and perhaps other social media sites doing something your fans appreciate, they can support you with some cash, either one time or ongoing.
You will see us use crowdfunding or crowd funding on this site because some folks use the terms interchangeably.
How is FanBeach different?
We think of ourselves as a blend of the best features of the most well known fan funding platform and a digital marketplace version of something like Etsy. The digital item sales, to be clear, are entirely optional. You can make use of them or not, it is your choice. First and foremost, we are a fan funding platform for creators.
FanBeach is a Fan Funding Site, Not a Membership Platform
The site many think of as the leading fan funding service calls itself a membership platform. It has a system that pressures creators to find, purchase and sell merchandise to fans, and to produce additional, “special” content for their supporters, beyond what creators like you are already doing, on the far too many social media sites.
Earn More from Your Hard Work Without Working Harder
We think that’s too much extra work your fans don’t really need or want. They want to support you because they love what you do and want see you grow. So on FanBeach, you’ll be able to focus delivering high quality content to all of your fans on social media without the burden of creating additional exclusive content for those behind a paywall.
FanBeach creators also enjoy the industry’s leading affiliate program that earns them even more money!
Finally, our pricing is fair and easy to understand. Noticing a trend here? No fees hidden behind asterisks. Flat rates. Simple. Transparent. Please see our pricing page for details.
