Everyone with a good idea for a project can put it out on Newjelly. It’s all about creativity and sharing. Let the users decide whether they want to support your project with money.


Remember, every project must have a goal. How much money do you need to make the project come true? How much time do you need? These are things you need to think about before putting it out there. It is also important to present your idea well. Make videos, give nice rewards, and update your fans regularly so they know what’s going on.


We accept almost all kinds of projects but we have some exceptions;  we don`t accept  fundraising and charity projects or projects involving pornography, violence, firearms, religion or projects designed solely to express political views. Further, we don’t accept projects involving loans or investments such as lotteries, raffles and sweepstakes.


If you are uncertain if your project involves any of the above, ask us, we will give you a straight answer.

 
It`s up to you. How much time do you need? However we have a maximum of 180 days. So you have to work hard during that time. Spread the word, let the fans help you. Use Facebook, Twitter etc. And most important; Make a video presentation of yourself, your projects and reward your fans well ;)
 
Sorry. You have to show your face and let people know who you are. The users want to know who they are supporting, right? Be sure to update your fans on your project, how is it going and when they'll receive the rewards that you are giving away.
 
If the goal is not reached within the time limit the money goes back to the fans/funders.
 
The project keeps going until the time limit ends. Meaning a project can fund more money than it asks for. Good for you. People seem to like your idea.
 
No. Sky is the limit!
 
No. Use project updates as a source for new information during the funding period. After that you must stick to the plan.
 
Yes. Any money collected for the project will then be given back to the funders(minus PayPal fee for processing). The project site will not be deleted but posted until the project period ends.

 

 

No. Once it has been launched it will stay on the NewJelly site until time period ends. This for transparency. If it’s cancelled it will be posted on the project page.
 
You do. As project manager and creator you have the full responsibility to create and deliver the rewards to your funders. But remember, be creative, be large, and be honest, that’s what the fans like.
 
It`s all up to you. Almost anything. Be creative. Rewards will inspire support. Remember your funders can help you with spreading the word around about your great new project. It's all up to you as project creator to create and fulfill the rewards to the fans.
Example; if you are making a record, then a 10 euro donation may qualify for downloading the album when done, 50 euros might give them a free concert ticket + the record, while a 1000 euro donation may qualify for a trip to the studio during recording. Or maybe a 5000 euro donation may qualify for a live concert at the fans house. It`s all up to you. Be large!
 
The project creator/ manager will get your email so they can ask you for whatever information they need to give you the reward
 
Project creators are responsible for their promises. NewJelly has no responsibility for delivering out the rewards. It`s all based on trust and believes
 
Yes of course. Whatever promotes your project is good. It`s all about using the fans and the crowds to promote your project. Be creative and use whatever sources you can to promote yourself.
