Totally recommend!

I have worked with Funded Today for about a month and we are about to start on the main marketing campaign. They are a great team to work with but listening to their podcasts has given me a closer understanding of all that's goin gon behind the scenes.

It has also helped me greatly on doing a better campaign and prepare for a successful first days and a fully funded campaign.

Thank you Zach and Thomas!

They stalled me for 2 weeks & tried to get my Indiegogo password

I listened to one of their podcasts. Somebody from their company Funded Today asked creators to contact him for cross collaborations. I emailed him. For two weeks, there have been endless conversations without any progress. There was a cloud all the time on which campaigns we can collaborate with. He also said that he wants to publish the update himself to our backers. He asked for my Indiegogo account password. What kind of company does this. It’s a total red flag. An attempt to hack an account.. I also talked to someone else in the same company about our future Kickstarter campaign. There was this cold and weird silence all along the call. No sign of willingness to work with. I asked about how they can help. He jumped into prices such as pre-launch email list $5k, marketing $2k etc. no explanation of how the process goes. At some point he said something like “you pay us, we do marketing” in an inpatient tone. What a total waste of time with these two people. I am glad that we didn’t sign any contract
