Crowdfunding Campaign Consulting

At Hive, our mission is to develop top-notch tools that empower creators in their journey to crowdfunding success. Having undertaken numerous projects on the Kickstarter platform ourselves, we've gained invaluable insights through the entire process. Learning from firsthand experiences, we've honed our knowledge and crafted tools to simplify and enhance your crowdfunding journey.

Whether you're just starting out or in the midst of a campaign, we're here to assist at any stage. Count on us to leverage our expertise and tools to make your crowdfunding experience a smoother and more successful endeavor.

Campaign Setup Consultation

Having the best product in the world is a great start, but it's not the sole factor for a successful Kickstarter campaign!

Prior to launch, meticulous planning on how to effectively present your product to potential backers is crucial. The graphics you select, coupled with the layout, significantly influence backer decision-making. Justifying the cost of each pledge is equally important, and demonstrating your knowledge and capability to fulfill promises is paramount.

To aid you in this journey, we provide access to graphic designers, illustrators, and crowdfunding experts. Their expertise can help you sidestep common pitfalls, ensuring a campaign that not only avoids mistakes but also substantially enhances your likelihood of success.

Manufacturing Quotes

Secure the price you desire without compromising the quality your backers deserve. Ensuring that production aligns with your plan and that you take pride in the product your backers will receive is crucial.

With a global network, we collaborate with companies worldwide and have meticulously curated a list of trusted partners and manufacturers. This ensures that your project gets precisely what it needs. We can obtain manufacturing quotes, provide references, and connect you with the right people. Count on us to furnish you with all the necessary information, empowering you to make informed decisions for the success of your project.

Pledge/Product Pricing

Once you've determined the manufacturing price of your product, we can assist you in formulating the right pricing strategy.

Understanding the distinctions between a Kickstarter price, Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), and the expectations of distributors and localization partners is essential. Properly positioning your product from the outset is crucial for its sustained success beyond the crowdfunding campaign.

With our experience in product placement and market positioning, let us guide you in establishing the correct pricing policy. Ensuring your product is positioned effectively from day one is a key step toward ensuring a bright and prosperous future in the market.

Marketing Plan

Getting the word out about your campaign is a strategic endeavor that should commence at least three months before launch!

A comprehensive and scalable marketing plan is essential, covering the period before you launch and extending beyond the campaign's conclusion. Our arsenal includes newsletters, giveaways, contests, social media marketing, Google Adwords/remarketing, YouTube reviews, ad placements, and mailing lists, among other tools.

Recognizing that each project is unique, with its distinct needs, strengths, and weaknesses, our team is adept at navigating the marketing landscape. We can assist you in setting up an affordable budget tailored to your needs, ensuring you get the most out of your marketing efforts.

Fulfilment Strategy

Fulfilling a crowdfunding project is a high-stakes endeavor, where even a small miscalculation can result in significant financial repercussions. Selecting the right partners for delivering your product and devising an accurate delivery plan is of utmost importance.

The approach to fulfillment varies for each project, contingent on factors such as the size and weight of the final product, as well as the number of backers. Striking the right balance between not overcharging backers for shipping and ensuring you don't undercharge and incur losses is critical.

With established connections to major fulfillment hubs globally, including Aetherworks, QML, Happyshops, Green Logistics, ShipQuest, Zatu, P&P, and more, we can assist you in obtaining accurate quotes, understanding potential risks, and crafting a plan tailored to meet your project's specific needs.

Freight Plan & Management

Once your product is ready, finding the most efficient and cost-effective means to transport it from your manufacturer to the fulfillment hubs is crucial. This process typically involves cargo ships, particularly from China to destinations like the US, Canada, Australia, the EU, and the UK.

We offer comprehensive assistance in transporting and importing your products to various destination countries. Our services include handling import requirements such as certificates, invoices, and regulations, along with providing guidance on navigating import custom fees and EU VAT.

By working directly with shipping companies, we eliminate unnecessary intermediaries, enabling us to help you create a robust plan with highly competitive freight quotes. Our goal is to streamline the logistics of your project, ensuring a smooth transition from manufacturing to fulfillment.
