Kickstarter backer surveys are like "we took your money and then took months to finish the product, but YOU MUST REPLY WITHIN 7 DAYS!"

I get the logistics and sense of urgency, but I guess you can't take a summer vacation if you're a backer on Kickstarter.

I need your help.

If you have ever implemented community strategy that I shared via my work, writing, speaking or with you directly, I'd love to know the companies that benefited from that strategy. You can contact me privately at patrick@ifroggy.com, as well.

Here's why: one of the downsides of me just giving strategy away and not doing traditional consulting is that I don't have a client list. As I go through career opportunities and job interviews, I am running into people who don't care that I can build a comprehensive strategy for their company, they only care what companies I've helped. And while I know it's a large number, it's not enough to just say that. I need names. :) That's why I'm building a list.

It already includes FedEx and Sony, but I'd be grateful if I could add some more big names - they don't need to be Fortune 500s, just respected brands. Thanks so much.

When I write about community, what value does that work have?

I'm experimenting with Patreon, and I don't know what to expect. It's very possible no one will support my work. I guess we'll see.
I see Patreon as a really interesting community platform. The service allows creators to receive financial support directly from those who appreciate their work. It's become really popular and is used by all types of creators: YouTubers, musicians, cartoonists, writers, podcasters, artists, ...

KarateForums.com​ turns 14 years old today. The more time goes by, the prouder I am of what the community has become.

Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur
Introduction

I run the iFroggy Network, a publisher of websites, and have been managing online communities since 2000. With this experience in mind, I authored the book “Managing Online Forums,” a practical guide to managing online social spaces, and speak at conferences and events.

I am passionate about online community and I regularly write and speak about online community and social media. For more information, please see my speaking page.

I write about online community at ManagingCommunities.com and more at patrickokeefe.com. On Twitter, you can find me @iFroggy.

Bragging rights
I led my little league in candy selling for two separate years, earning a $50 check and a Huffy bicycle, I have been retweeted by Diddy many times and I have DJed with DJ Jazzy Jeff on Turntable.fm.
