How to Use Facebook to Raise $87,373 on Kickstarter

Tips to help you plan and run a successful campaign.

Not every Kickstarter campaign is an instant success.

In fact, Chadi’s first Kickstarter campaign was a flop.

It didn’t raise as much as he hoped. But, that didn’t stop him.

Chadi started out with no contacts, no email list and less than 100 FB page likes. He made a commitment to do what was needed to figure out how Kickstarter worked.

After a lot of learning, almost a year after his first Kickstarter campaign, he re-launched and ended up raising $87,373 from 260 backers!!

With a new strategy and different mindset, he was able to turn a failure into a massive success.

He came on the podcast to share with you exactly what he did differently the second time around.

He shared how he got over 1,000 Instagram followers, what his pre-launch strategy looked like, and how he got a surprising number of backers from a mystery country.

Yes, I totally agree with @victorjack. It still holds true until now i.e. November 2016 that Facebook is still the largest social network that's especially crucial to promote your Kickstarter campaign. I can say this because my campaign (see: gets a lot of traffic from Facebook (10-20%) because:
1. We built a vibrant, close-knitted online community before we launched our Kickstarter campaign.
2. We always post great content CONSISTENTLY that add values to our audience's interest and we try our best to avoid being over pushy / too sales-oriented.
3. We hold weekly Facebook contests to incentivize our followers to share our Kickstarter campaign content to their Facebook timeline, which in turn reaches their friends of friends. This is a great way to increase brand awareness.
4. Last but not least, we run Facebook Ads, which is a great avenue to for targetted advertising. We can modify the group of audience we want to target.
