Supposedly indie is supposed to accept any proposals or ideas. Well apparently they didn't like my idea, or it was too "mainstream". I dunno. Either way, I wasn't able to make a campaign. So I went over to this new site called productfunder.com. These guys are a small engineering firm in Montana that want to help people fund their products and ideas. They have a great thing called the Trusted Partner Network which basically helps you figure out the whole designing, manufacturing, and prototyping scenario; it definitely gave me a better perspective of what was actually needed to be done after the whole funding thing, and they helped me estimate how much I should set my funding goal to be.
Overall, Product Funder was/is an awesome place, and once my product funding is over, even if it doesn't succeed, I'll be back with more ideas!

Wonderful experience so far! These guys know what they're doing and have helped me get in contact with manufacturers for my product idea. I'll definitely be referring my friends here!

Kickstarter was awful in every part of my experience. I had an idea for a unique fishing reel, but they rejected it because it was a "consumer product". After looking around on the web, I found that a lot of funding sites also do not like the "consumer products". A friend told me about a new crowd-sourcing site called Product Funder; they are actually focused on consumer products and have helped me find manufacturers to help produce the reel. These guys are way better than kickstarter.
