Vanessa from Kickbooster here!
Thanks for the discussion about Kickbooster! I thought I would help clarify the purpose of our platform and how it can help a campaign.
Simply put, Kickbooster is a platform that allows Kickstarter campaigns to run a referral program by providing incentive for backers/family members/friends/the world to share and promote your campaign.
Kickbooster automatically creates your Booster links, tracks your Boosters, clicks, dollars raised, and takes care of payouts for you. All you would need to do as a campaign owner is connect your campaign with Kickbooster, set your reward and spread the word about your referral program - we'll take care of the rest.
The success of Kickbooster really depends on the quality of the campaign and getting the word out about your referral program. The campaign can choose to promote their referral program on their own social media, blogs, the KB Marketplace, or maybe just to a specific list of people you have already developed.
As an added bonus, when you connect your campaign with Kickbooster, you have the ability to add your campaign to our Marketplace page, making it instantly available to thousands of Boosters waiting for the next campaign they want to Boost.
And although we aren't a Marketing firm, we do handpick campaigns to promote on our own social media platforms and newsletters to help spread the word about your campaign.
As you can see, the Kickbooster tool is in the hands of Campaign Owners and Boosters (Affiliates) to use as they see fit. Our platform has given voice to campaigns that may have run out of their marketing budget; and has provided no risk to them to sign on.
We are definitely open to any questions and concerns the community may have about Kickbooster so don't hesitate to reach out to our team if you need anything! Thanks for listening!
