Frequently Ask Questions

What is Vlogfund?

A new way for people to generate a collaboration is through the concept of internet crowdsourcing. The concept is fairly simple. Vlogfund is the first internet platform that allows people to create, pitch and market their idea for a collaboration across the internet. Others on the internet can upote the collaboration and share it with their friends.

Collaboration campaign creators and contributors are working closely together to make new collaborations come together in real life.

What do I need to know before choosing a collaboration campaign?

Before someone makes a contribution to a collaboration campaign, we at Vlogfund recommend to read these suggestions first.

  1. Ensure the person who created the collaboration campaign is offering full description with lots of information about the collaboration
  2. Make sure you can identify yourself with the collaboration
  3. Search and see if you can find more information about the collaboration.

For many contributors, the rewarding part comes in the form of watching the collaboration campaign, from the idea to making the collaboration happen in real life.

One must also acknowledge the risks involved in such an endeavor. In preliminary stages, unanticipated delays and challenges can arise, and there is always the additional risk the collaboration will be unsuccessful.

How are contributors protected?

A level of security is necessary and needed by contributors before they start supporting a collaboration campaign. Vlogfund provides the trusted platform which contributors are seeking in crowdsourcing a collaboration.

Trust & Safety

Vlogfund mission is to provide a safe and trusted platform for contributors to choose a collaboration campaign to support on a crowdsourcing sight; while simultaneously uniting people globally around ideas and collaborations that are important to them and then empowering those people to see those collaborations become a reality.

Watching every collaboration campaign grow from an idea to an extraordinary collaboration, we want every contributor to be well informed. Vlogfund provides all the information and a global community built on trust and passion for seeing “dream collaborations come true”, and the security needed for the donors to feel confident supporting their favorite collaboration campaign.
Frequently, we may get asked certain questions about the viability of certain collaboration campaigns. First, we encourage everybody to evaluate the collaboration campaign on their own. We want contributors to be as informed as possible; learn about the collaboration campaign by reading more about the suggested collaborators, their biographies, updates, and comments.

Ask yourself is this a collaboration I can relate to or get excited about? We encourage everybody to be involved in the discussion/in the comments. As part of a global community, if one has a question, it is probably a question somebody else has and should be added to the collaboration campaigns updates/comments.

What is the role of the contributor?

Vlogfund and all collaboration campaigns could not be successful without the unbelievable aid of our community of contributors. We realize our contributors have the ability to make a new collaboration happen each time they support a collaboration campaign. We agree that this can be filled with both risks and rewards, but we want our contributors feeling confident and excited on the journey. The key is trust between all three parties: Vlogfund, the collaboration campaign creators, and the contributors.
It’s with trust and support that great collaborations come to life.

Spread the word. Share the collaboration campaign with others and encourage them to upvote.

Be Sure to Use the Comments Tab.
