We’re making things Pozible!
You may have noticed some changes in the wonderful world of crowd funding recently, the most notable being FundBreak’s name change to Pozible. Rest assured loyal fans, followers and friends, your favourite crowd funding platform is still at heart the one you know and love. It’s just that we have decided to up the ante a little at our HQ and made a decision to make things Pozible! Confused? Let’s take some time out to demystify our new identity.
We still are basically the platform you are familiar with. We provide the same service of giving creative practitioners and innovators the chance to gain much needed funds in order to follow their hearts desires through practical community support. We still allow our members to support people and groups they believe in as well as be a part of a community that cares about nurturing and fostering new endeavours. What has changed is after only six months of being operational, our team has realised just how vital our platform is to a lot of very incredible people. So we are putting ourselves out there to make crowd funding work for you as much as we possibly can. And this is why we have moved to our new name as Pozible.
Pozible is about creating a culture of creativity. Pozible will remain a place for crowd funding, where you can put your projects up for financial backing through audience participation. However we also want to add value to the Pozible experience and process through making use of our presence to build a community, encourage interest in your projects from the business world and help more and more people get to their end goal of a successful project.
So how do we plan to do this?
Building the Pozible community begins with our consolidation to centralised points of contact through social media. We’ve settled on our Facebook Fan page as our central point of contact. This means when you want to follow our adventures on Facebook, you should do so here http://www.facebook.com/pozible . We will also continue to bring you Tweet updates via http://twitter.com/pozible . To help build more of a sense of community we will be beefing up our offerings in social media and our main site blog to incorporate more advice, tips, tricks and articles about how to make ANY creative project a success as opposed to just focussing on our Pozible journey. A huge part of this is hearing from you- we want your comments on our content, your suggestions, debating, discussions, you name it we want it! Whether you have done a Pozible project or not, we know our audience is full of proactive, clever and inspired people who are just itching to share with others just like them. So we want you to be a vocal Pozible community sharing and learning!
Attracting the business world can help all of us achieve our goals. Any smart business can benefit from supporting the creative community because we are the people who innovate, create and share our stories with the wider community on a regular basis. Any smart creative practitioner knows gaining funding and access to a business’ customer base can open many exciting doors. So we have brought the supportive companies together with the savvy creative people under one very simple initiative- LikeBreak. This is as straight forward as the name suggests- any business sponsoring a project will match a Facebook Like with a set dollar amount. If your project is successful, you get the money from the company who gets the Likes and the business gets not only the warm and fuzzy feeling of helping out a cool project, they also get a tasteful logo at the top of your page to encourage the Likes and show who they are. How awesome is that?
Helping more people have a successful project is what Pozible is all about. To this end, over the coming weeks and months, we will be documenting the learning and experiences others have had using crowd funding and creating a virtual Pozi-pedia of this knowledge to assist our community with practical, real world experiences. We have also made a commitment to expand Pozible into arenas beyond just creative projects to help a whole host of people realise their dreams. Not only that but we have huge plans to make 2011 the year of letting the world know exactly what Pozible is to attract more people to fund projects, help our loyal fans make their mark and if we have time, create a crowd funding revolution in Australia and beyond.
This is why we are now Pozible. We believe we will make a new kind of creative community Pozible, make fruitful relationships with business Pozible and make more projects than ever before Pozible. Because at the end of the day, we believe anything is Pozible. Wouldn’t you agree?
