Thanks for the tips. It does drive me nuts when it seems that so many people manages to build a large audience over a short period of time. I feel as though I have no talent whatsoever in figuring out this strange world called networking + social media. I guess I have to keep on trying :( ... og-sweater

Hi @Mint, thank you for sharing the article, great insights! :)

For everyone else, if you need MORE tips and tricks on how to promote your Kickstarter campaign, I just wrote an article on how my campaign (see: raised $250,000 in less than 9 hours here: how-we-raised-250-000-in-less-than-9-hours-t6932.html.

$20k plus

you think its small success? no.

for those who think its a small success, no. the campaign owner reach 706 users. its more than 500 users, which is WAY ABOVE AVERAGE for numbers of backers per project.

he reach 20k due to the pricing point, and thats it. given he take $50, then thats $35k. see what i mean?

By the way, how do you gather the backers through fb and how do you convert them to backers?

Hi Mint. Thank you for this very insightful post. Really appreciate it :-)

2 Quick questions:

1. When you say "campaign page" do you mean a separate facebook page specifically for your project?
2. When you say "facebook page" are you referring to your personal facebook page (i.e. yourself)?

I look forward to hearing from you.

FYI - I'm about to launch a Kickstarter page to fund post production on a Comedy film I Made callled "Holy Rogues"

I'm feeling the same way! I'm only 2 days into my campaign and I can just feel the onslaught of mistakes I made. I also started growing my fb audience the day before the campaign and although I think I did a decent enough job on the presentation I'm fairly certain I rushed many things.

I definitely needed more real user reviews on the kickstarter before launching and needed to find out if it was understandable and so on. But if you do have the time at all can you give your honest review of my kickstarter that's ongoing? It probably won't help right now but it will help for the next one!

What do you think? Does it have potential? Remake the video? More pictures? ... life-coach
