Even though this is an old post, it's definitely relevant for me! I'm only a couple of days into my campaign and I feel like I'm running out of steam. We're at 31% funded which is great but I'm worried I've pulled out all my guns. I don't know what I've got left. Today I silently fumed and felt sorry for myself (and made a mental list of friends I was going to dump).
But your post has got me thinking. Must be pro-active. Must not shove the sell down people's throats. Must be helpful.
Thanks coach!

do not blame your friends when things are not working out for you.

you need to improve and prove them wrong.

Very good piece of advice. I've just read all the points in the blog you shared and will surely do it accordingly! My project got 20% funded and still have a long way to go. Hope everything turns out great! Thank you for sharing and here's my project: http://kck.st/2qPs5Qw

Thank you!

Great content! Thank you so much for sharing your points and advice. I have terrible feels of my Kickstarter campaign and feel very discouraged, and this is a big help to motivate me to keep on going. There are some good places to start implementing some of these fresh ideas. If you have a minute here is my project. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/25 ... -iron-hook

Hi...

I am not sure if my project ( SMART PUTTER - Hardware, golf ) has a smaller niche than everyone else...

but I would be greatly thankful for your feedback

Thanks in advance

I think that's a really good idea actually. Looking at other projects and promoting others so they will look at yours as well. I will start doing that right now. I've actually bookmarked the blog you referred.

I would like to take you up on your offer though. If you have the time could you look over my kickstarter, I seem to have either a conversion issue or I just don't have PR. Hard to tell but I would like to know if my Kickstarter is worth while since I believe it can actually help millions of people.

Let me know what you think though and be honest!

WOW, great! We are also desperate that and share the same experienc. 20 days have passed and we still havent pass our goal...
We have just launched our new product on Kickstarter and it is already running for 20 days. But we are still not funded yet and were wondering, what is the reason. Can you help out? Give us advice how to still get it funded?
Please help and share!

These are great tips! I'm an active Kickstarter backer, but I probably should share more links to them.
