And good Wednesday to you all! Especially those of you who are working those long shifts and still grinding out the remainder of the work-week. Don’t fret! Friday is almost here!
Today’s featured Project comes at seemingly the perfect time! My mind has been pondering on the concept of “creativity” this week, and the different paths that creators tend to take to share their creations and continue to build upon them. We’re all ultimately creators, so this really does relate to every single one of us. However, some of us utilize and prioritize our creations and desire to create over the average person, and these are the type of creators I have been thinking about.
Aside from that however, today’s featured project is for those creators out there who are looking for a way to further share their creations. Before I give the entire premise in the intro here, like the ranting king I am, let’s jump into today’s KickStart Me!
Today’s “KickStart Me!” features a KickStarter project based on a new mobile app that seeks to bring creators of all sorts together on a single platform to help share, advertise, and build their creations.
The app will allow individuals to get their own logo, theme, and branded video sharing app that will help them connect with their community. All of this content will be 100% their own to monetize, advertise, and use in whatever way they so desire.
The creator of this project is Jose Llorens, based out of Los Angeles, CA.
Jose Llorens is “An adventurer dedicated to living life to the fullest, Jose believes everyone has a story worth sharing. He created imDown to democratize mobile-first video for creative minds around the world….”
Jose feels that creators need a platform such as “imdown” because large media companies have begun to take advantage of creators on some of the most prominent, popular platforms. As creators, Jose believes that we all deserve to be in full control of whatever we do, and whatever we decide to create. “imdown” will ultimately allow users to launch their OWN platform, where they won’t be chained or blocked by the many rules and regulations that many big name platforms have seem to force upon content creators nowadays.
Over the last 6 months, Jose and his development team have been hard at work on a demo of the app that they have been refining and testing, that is currently available for everyone to use via IOS – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imdown-discover-watch-share/id954395400?mt=8
Creators who decide to utilize the app will immediately gain the following:
- Personal branded mobile video platform
- Bring your community directly to you
- Choose what channels you’d like to have
- Choose whether you’d like to monetize (subscription, one-time fee)
- Ability to sell digital accessories inside your platform
- An easy way to engage with your audience
- Freedom to be themselves
- Control your digital media world
As you can probably already imagine, launching an ambitious platform can get very costly, especially when you consider the need for development materials, advertising materials, and more. The project currently has a set goal of $250,00 with 23 day’s remaining. Quite a steep climb for Jose and his team to climb, however I do feel like this project will catch on, and more fellow creators, such as myself, will find this quite intriguing and will decide to support the development.
There are also some pretty nice rewards available for those who do decide to support the project by pledging. You can check those out below.

Platforms such as “imDown” which seek to cater to creators are honestly my favorite type of apps. I’m really excited to see where this project goes, and definitely plan on checking it out and testing it for myself! A big shutout to Jose and his team for developing such a great platform for creators!

Well everyone, that does it for today’s “KickStart Me!” as I’m still adjusting to the flow of these bi-daily articles during the week, I’ll see you all on Friday as I somehow manage to cram Friday’s “KickStart Me!” in, before the end of the day.
Until then everyone,
~ Take care, and have a great rest of the day!
