    "I have an entrepreneurial spirit and have used indiegogo a couple times to help raise money for my business venture. I am sad to report that my idea's did not take off, but Indiegogo did however make it simple and easy to raise money. If you are looking to start a business or raise money for a good cause, look no further than Indiegogo."

    "Ratafire has one criterium that sets it apart from sites like GoFundMe and Patreon - it's specifically for less popular creators. Unfortunately, the very thing that sets the site apart, limits its appeal. You're better off fighting for a spot in the sun at the other crowd funding sites than being a big star at Ratafire."

    #3Patreon

    Patreon
    A membership platform that gets creators paid. Rather than funding projects, in Patreon pledges represent an ongoing sponsorship and are paid either as a fixed monthly donation or based on pre-defined units of work.

    "There is no better resource than Patreon to get funding for your endeavors. The fees are only 5% and the website offers a robust framework and support that keeps all the guesswork on your part to a minimum. I used it to gain some income for my independent Youtube channel from fans and I didn't have to worry about coding anything myself. It was easy to use."

    "I lurked a lot on Kickstarter, because I was hesitant to give it a shot. I feel like an idiot. It has helped me get things accomplished. I wish I had tried it sooner. I would have been further along in my projects."
