Thank you. I just spotted this post and saw you wrote about using Hyperstarter.

I surprisingly earned about 500 in kickbooster from a couple people linking me. I didn't even discuss having it. I am going to purchase it again for the relaunch and send it out in my launch email to my former backers and email subscribers.
i would also highly recommend hyperstarter, Giles is great. He knows his stuff. He is helping us with our relaunch. Should have used him the first time around.

I've now been with Kickbooster for approximately 10 days. Here's what I think based on my experience and what I know from one other colleague who is using them now as well:

1. They are well worth the money. The up-front investment is tiny and you really can't go wrong with using them.
2. They are easy to work with.
3. Probably the most valuable service they offer is helping to get press for your campaign. The company that writes is then able to use one of the Kickbooster links to get a kickback on any pledges that result from their article. While they haven't gotten me any press yet, they did for my colleague (i.e. Mashable!) and it definitely seems to have boosted her campaign.
4. Several bloggers have responded to the advertisement of an affiliate opportunity for our Kickstarter. This has helped expand our reach significantly.

Overall, I'm a fan.

I agree. I got nothing from them. I honestly believe now that every single last marketing company is a waste. I mean think about it, if you build good products - people will find it, that's just how it works. Things go viral and that's the just the way it is.

agreed. I think is worth about a $5 investment, it's not bad.
