This is a great forum with tons of great information. I am really sorry I just found it.
So, recently I decided I want to change a career a bit, and I became a full time product designer and inventor
I launched my first KS project this spring. I gor around 185% funded which is great, but the total amount was not that great, only around 8000$.
A few days ago I launched my 2nd KS project, this time a bit more serious, with bigger apetite and a long term plan to turn this into a real company.
My project is IRONATE. It's a kitchen gadget that lets you make a perfect pizza in just 3 minutes on your kitchen stove. No oven needed. It's much faster than a regular oven and it reaches high temperatures, so you can make some really good pizzas.

At the moment, we are in our 3rd day of campaign, and we raised $18,500 of our $20,000 goal.
I still have some aces up my sleve and we are hoping to get some media coverage during the campain to properly boost our pledges.
I will write more about our marketing strategies and the milestones in this thread.
One of our strategies is doing a lot of co-promotions with other KS projects through direct messages or project updates. So, if you have a project with at least 150 backers and want to do a promo, please let me know.
