Website and Twitter account monitoring ongoing crowdfunding campaigns for coops across different crowdfunding platforms
I am writing an article titled "Crowdfunding coops - 10 Biggest campaigns in biggest US crowdfunding platforms".
I have went through crowdfunding websites looking for ongoing and past crowdfunding campaigns. Across the largest crowdfunding platforms, theres maybe few dozen active crowdfunding campaigns by coops in the English speaking world.
It wouldnt be a platform for cooperative crowdfunding, but a website compiling all the ongoing crowdfunding campaigns in a single website. Later on, especially with the cool things happening with Open Collective, we could also expand to hosting crowdfunding campaigns. But we could start such a website more easily first.
I could list and update all the campaigns. I wonder if there would be interest for Platform6 to include the list in its website?
This would be a website similar to democraticjobs that would include and categorize all the ongoing crowdfunding campaigns for coops across different crowdfunding platforms. Might also attract visitors to our website.
We could also tweet everytime theres a new coop crowdfunding campaign added - this way people might find following our Twitter account useful if they would like to know about new coop crowdfunding campaigns.
Started a Twitter account called "Coop Crowdfunding Alerts". I will tweet every time there is a new coop seeking crowdfunding, with the tweet including a link to the crowdfunding campaign. Platform6 could do outreach by having a website compiling all the campaigns, with each of the Coop Crowdfunding Alert tweet linking to the Platform6 website that collects all the campaigns (from kickstarter to gofundme), also tagging platform6 twitter account. This rather messy explanation is perhaps more easily understandable by looking at the bottom image in this post:
The site would be similar to Democratic Jobs, a website listing jobs open in worker coops that is embedded in the Platform6 homepage.
Theres two pictures: one about what the Twitter account looks like now, and one on how the tweets could look like and how it could be used to promote platform6 twitter account and the platform6 "coop monitor" website.
