On Episode 97 of the Capes and Tights Podcast, Justin Soderberg welcomes Jordan Plosky to the show to discuss Zoop. Plosky is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer the comic book centric crowding funding platform.
Zoop was conceived by Plosky and Eric Moss in the summer of 2020. After enlisting CTO Marvin Osswald to head up development, Brett Schenker to handle in-house marketing, and Camilla Zhang (former Comics Outreach Lead at Kickstarter) to advise on customer experience, they launched the new platform in June 2021 to much critical acclaim, and continue to run campaigns on it for comics projects and beyond.
Plosky joined the Capes and Tights Podcast to discuss what his crowdfunding platform has to offer and which projects are available to back right now and so much more.
For publishers and creators, Zoop is an all-in-one pre-order, production, fulfillment, and marketing solution that connects them directly to their fans. In addition to data and analytics reports, social and email integrations, Zoop handles the admin and business side of things, so publishers and creators can focus on creating more of what their fans want.
For fans, this is the easiest way to have direct access to what you love. Want to support a campaign by getting more than 1 item? Get ‘em all! Need multiple of a single item? Let’s do it! Tired of having to buy something during a campaign, and have to wait for the “after-campaign” campaign to buy something else you wanted? No more of that! Let’s make it easier on everyone!
While the idea was born in 2018, the 2020 Pandemic proved that we needed an end-to-end, low-risk, direct-to-consumer solution to meet the needs of the fandom community.
We aim to sustain and grow our favorite industries (and beyond) by bringing crowdfunding, e-commerce, production, fulfillment, and distribution together under a single, simple platform.
