Like most I too realised too late how I should have gained more followers before launching the campaign. I only just launched 2 days ago and I find it very exhausting. I did learn a lot as well about promoting but I am still not where I want to be. I hope I eventually can also get more support from strangers on KS and the like instead of just friends and aquaintances. ... ms-artbook

My first launch was not nice, I have cancelled it.
My second launch is going okay, I have learned from the mistakes and come back with better campaign content.

- Have you learned any new skills (marketing/social media)?
>>>> Yes, I have learned how to use twitter (Sorry, but no one in Hong Kong is using Twitter). And now I know how important to gain followers on social media!

- Have you gotten any backers you don't know?
>>>>> Oh.. well, I don't really know any of the backers. No one in my circle is interested in Kickstarter... probable due to language problem, and that sad, because no one is willing to help me share my campaign when they cannot understand the words lol

- What has been frustrating?
>>>> I thought I have made a mistake on shipping fee calculation, I set the price too low comparing with others. I didn't choose to send my products by UPS or DHL, but local post office service for a better price. Just the shipment time is long.....

- How did you motivate yourself daily?
>>>>>>As Mel Robbins said, "Motivation is garbage" I agree with that. Use the 5 second rule, don't ever try to wait for the good mood after motivating yourself to do stuff. You don't have to wait for feeling in the right mood to do things. I trained myself to make process even I don't have the mood, I trained myself to complete things when I feel lazy. Really, if anyone is watching this, go try the 5 second rule by Mel Robbins! It works!

- Are you planning on starting a business if your Kickstarter goes well?
>>>>> Yes, I want to make this as my life time job, I love to make figures and I want to make every family a set.

- What tools or websites do you recommend (others than this one haha)?
>>>> I want to know it too!!!
