KopTalk's 2019 Fundraiser
Duncan Oldham (Dunk) is the founder and editor of the independent Liverpool FC fans' website KopTalk. Alongside the website, Dunk provides a popular YouTube channel for Liverpool fans called KopTalk.TV. He is also responsible for The KopTalk Podcast which is available free of charge via iTunes and various podcast apps.
Free video content is provided to tens of thousands of subscribers on YouTube and hundreds of thousands of followers across social media. Thanks to the KopTalk website, millions of people all around the globe have been updated with Liverpool FC news for almost 20 years.
The website has managed to remain truly independent of influence for 2 decades. We restrict advertising on the website and avoid 'clickbaiting' practices and gambling partnerships so as to not annoy our readers. Big-money offers from investors who want to exploit our readers and members have been rejected over the years as we strive to remain loyal to those who support us.
Due to the emergence of social media, there has been a decline in loyalty towards individual fan websites. We need the help of those who enjoy KopTalk, to enable to us to continue providing our content.
Towards the end of 2018, we invested approximately £5000 from personal funds on new equipment that enables us to update the website and to provide our content along with materials to soundproof the studio where video and audio content is produced. It would help us significantly if we could raise £5000 in 2019. If not, we will have to find alternative ways to generate revenue which we feel would spoil 20 years of independence and the overall experience of those who enjoy our content.
Any contribution will help Dunk and the small team of unwaged Liverpool fans that make it all happen. Thank you for support.
