Swivl is the must have device for Teachers


Swivl started as a Kickstarter project that raised $157,000 and was released in 2012. The Swivl was a little dock taht panned around to follow Bluetooth remote control. The product was geared towards videographers and presenters to film themselves live.

After initial buzz, Brian Lamb creator of Swivl found feedback that this device should be geared toward education. Teachers loved the idea of the Swivl which could record multi-hour-long recordings of lectures they taught.

The product Swivl is not geared towards education and continues to see promise. The Swivl is selling well to lecturers, teachers, and presenters.

FYM Hot Sauce utilizes Reddit to help fund KickStarter Campaign


FYM Hot Sauce was smart to use Reddit to his advantage. The hot sauce maker first reached out to Reddit r/Portland community offering up some free samples for feedback on his sauce. Then he went one step further and went to Reddit r/hotsauce for more free samples which will be used to gain feedback and tesimonials when his Kickstarter page launches.

The use of the prelaunch hype from Reddit helped this man reach his goal and beyond. The Kickstarter page is currently at $48,459 of a goal that was only $5,500.

We may see more people utilize the Reddit community to help fund crowd-sourcing projects.
