Good luck @trisshala
I didn't share any tips that was particularly special. Nothing I did was particularly special. It wasn't one thing, it was a little bit of everything. (it's helpful to know small press and KS staff pick was a good fit"--I didn't say that, those 2 things were a few of many things. "some people receive most .... "--I think most successful projects did most everything they could, they didn't just focus and relied and planned for one or two methods.) It's not one thing. I thought I was going to fail because I didn't have any press lined up at the start (day 1).
There's a lot of great advice out there, follow as much as you can that is fitting for you.
My shipping plans are particularly for me, my choices are after many hours of analysis based on my rewards, specific to me. There's great posts out there to help one get started thinking about it, and some with some personal reviews of some of the newer companies. ("people have suggested Fulfillrite and Shipwire, so I was wondering if you had your own preference"--you asked me "tips on shipping and fulfilment", not if I had experience with Fulfillrite/Shipwire. And no I don't, but it would have been helpful if your question included that if that's what you were wondering.)
