Launching the Forevergeek Kickstarter Store!

Posted on Nov 18, 2013

During the summer we were browsing through Kickstarter and trying to find products in niches related to our blog Forevergeek.com that had a) been successfully funded and completed and b) were available (or would soon be available) for the general public to purchase. ¬†We found that Kickstarter does not offer any way for people to keep track of products once they have been funded and we thought wouldn’t it be cool if there were an online store where you could browse all the books, video games, clothing, art, board games and gadgets along with many other products that had been funded via Kickstarter only in one place?

So we decided to build one ourselves and we have just rolled it out, the Forevergeek Kickstarter Store

With this store we are aiming to build a useful resource for geek fans looking for all the cool indie products they have heard about being funded via Kickstarter and brought together where they can be purchased, we also want to make this into a platform where creators with little or no marketing budget can get some visibility for their newly funded products.

Although we are calling it a store we dont actually sell the products, instead we have researched and cataloged products in a variety of categories from design & fashion to board games and novels. Every product has its own page with information of the product and its creators, images and video clips, links to the creators social media accounts and most importantly a ‘Buy now’ link that directs you to where the product can be actually purchased either on the creators own website, Amazon, iTunes or other 3rd party websites.
