I'm Alina and I am one of the creators of Escuro Bicycle Bag project on Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robertodesimone/escuro-bicycle-bag-stylish-and-functional

Just after we have launched our campaign, we have received so many messages from PR agencies, crowdfunding promotion websites, some believable some not. Among these messages, I have received two that actually were more interesting, at least to my knowledge. One was from BackerCamp.com, the other from Gadget Flow. I know Gadget Flow better because I have used to check their website almost daily, The other one was something new for me.

Now, we have our design product. We are really enthusiastic about the final result, but the campaign goes pretty slow. We have launched it about a couple of days ago and we only have 3 backers. I'm pretty sure that the problem is not the product, but the fact that we don't know many people, we don't know bloggers and other influencers. Then, we have a pretty tight budget for promotion.

I'm wondering if should I invest this tight budget in BackerCamp Media Outreach Plan or in Gadget Flow Basic Plan? In my opinion, Gadget Flow Plan is more convincing also because I know their kind of target. But I would need so much someone's else opinion.

Do you also know if you can Upgrade a plan with them?

Thank you

Hey Alina,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm happy to help with this!

First of all great project, the presentation is great and your product looks amazing. I'd suggest you read our new crowdfunding checklist here - http://thegadgetflow.com/blog/crowdfunding-checklist/ Crowdfunding is all about the pre-launch campaign, you need to have a community and people that are interested to your product before you launch your campaign in order to secure your first 20-30% within the first 48 hours from your community, friends and family.

With that said, your product definitely fits our platoform and we'd be more than happy to introduce it to our community.

Lastly, if you want you can upgrade your package just by paying the difference. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us directly at support@thegadgetflow.com

Good luck with your campaign! :D

Thank you for the info!
Someone from Gadget Flow has already contacted me and I'm looking forward her answer.
As I have said in my initial post, my campaign is already launched and in the first 48 hours we have had only 3% instead of 30%. We don't have any friends, family that could have start pre-ordering our products on Kickstarter.
That's why I'm asking if it isn't too late or we should have had a pre-lunch campaign as a mandatory step for a funded campaign.

The gadget flow gave us a huge push towards the end of our campaign. Their dedicated email blast alone brought in $6000 in one day! From that day on, pledges just continued to pour in. I'd recommend them... especially the dedicated email blast... I would have paid for multiple dedicated blasts if I had enough time.

Use them early so you have time to upgrade your package and get more promotional power (double up on the dedicated blast if possible)

Hey Alina, I successfully worked with them for our Indiegogo campaign and for our crowdfunding campaign (https://quietlife.tech/sale1.html).
I continue to use them for various other projects. When people ask me where to begin an online promotion, I always put Gadget Flow at the top of the list; working with the GF team is always an easy process and the results speak for themselves- would definitely recommend trying out. - Jason N., Digital Sales Manager, QuietLife Technologies

Is GF aimed purely at gadgets, or do you think they'd be able to support a mobile game as effectively?
Cheers :)

Hey Gadget Flow!

We are thinking promoting our project, a wallet with an innovative mechanism to store keys, along with cash and cards. Project preview link here: http://kck.st/2pSqRzH

A couple questions below:
- Do you think this is the sort of project that resonates with the audience on Gadget Flow?
- Ideally, we'd like our product to be included the newsletter blast on May 23, the launch day of our project. Is it still possible to schedule our promotion for this date?

Regards,

Jerry

If you read the previous post i write in this thread, I do approve gadget flow involvement in many niche. but i strongly suggest you (apps project) to bother with TGF because you are not sharing the same audience.

unless you are planning to get presence on the internet, then dont.

Hi there, I am one of the creators of http://www.TriboTEX.com campaign and I have the pleasure to report on my experience with Gadget Flow. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tribotex/tribotex-more-engine-hp-better-mileage-less-wear-a

As all of you know, we received a lot of marketing messages from many marketers just the campaign starts and frankly very simple advice for anyone marketing would be to back up campaign first.

We collaborated with several marketing outlets and have a lot of good words to say about many of those but here is a special thank you to Gadget Flow.

First of all: company presents themselves very well as a team: very consistent communication over all channels, Evan, Julien, Jordan, Cassie, and Susanna all pleasure to communicate with by email and phone despite the difference in time zones.

They are interested in what they are doing and selective in projects they support. This is a big deal for us. We are propelled many years by passion and love to see people supporting us with professionalism.

They provide good case studies and well aware of the demographics of their readers and delivery.

They provide statistics of their conversion and watch it with you.

They have a beautiful app that delivers great images and descriptions.

Great experience, well recommended and great ROI even with more expensive options.
