What is The Notice Blog?

The Notice Blog creates content that is not only engaging, but informative. Our work will always be inclusive in representing the complexities of the world through both fictional narratives and investigative reporting.

Help Us Officially Launch The Notice Blog in 2017!

We fundraising to officially launch the Notice Blog in February 2017. This quintessentially means us getting our name out there, and putting up consistent weekly content that engages, examines and explores the world around us, and the communities who helped build them. 

This is what our fundraising goal is going toward:

$3,000 Will Get Us This:

  • $100 per month for Facebook Ads (12 Months) = $1,200
  • $100 per month for Google Ads Advertising (12 Months) = $1,200
  • Kickstarter Fees @ 5% =  $150
  • Kickstarter Payment processing fees @ 3-5% = $90 - $150
  • Cost of Prizes 10% = $300

Why Fundraise for Advertising?

Here's a quick breakdown this video clip, or just read the description below:
 
Because we want to be self-sustainable, rather than constantly relying on donations. In order to do that we need:

22k Views per page, @ 3 articles/videos per day. 

That'll give our company enough (around $15k a month) to start paying our staff for their work. 

That's really our goal right now. We need to build up enough traffic, so that we're self-sustainable. IF we raise more money than our goal, we'll do this:

$3,000 to $6,000 = More Ads

  • $200 per month for Facebook Ads (12 Months) = $2,400 
  • $200 per month for Google Ads Advertising (12 Months) = $2,400 
  • Kickstarter Fees @ 5% = $300 
  • Kickstarter Payment processing fees @ 3-5% = $180 - $300 
  • Cost of Prizes 10% = $600 

$6,000 to $10,000 = More Ads + More Studio Editing

$10,000 and Up = 

We don't wanna get ahead of ourselves, but if we reach this amount - EVERYONE who's donated is getting extra prizes. 

Here's a few more of our videos:

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Everything costs money in this industry. The age old adage, "Spend money to make money," definitely applies here. There's certainly the possibility that even with the $3k, we still wouldn't be able to reach our desired goal of 22k views per page. So my solution? Do what I'm doing now, pay out of pocket. I certainly don't have $3k at hand, but freelancing, and a determination goes a long way.

We've been running this company on fumes since the beginning. We're resourceful. And dedicated. I'm used to making a dollar out of 15 cents, because as a producer for other projects and media companies, that was my job.

That's pretty much it, tbh. I initially thought this section was geared toward what would happen, if we DON'T raise the $3k. I mean, we're just trying to give these stories to the world, to make it a better place. They're already being made, and will continue to be made. We just need more people to see it.
