Awesome tips shared by everyone especially lowkey. Thank you! You should get a medal. ;) I read through every single page.

Hoping to launch my campaign next week. Campaign is still in review. I didn't realize it can still be edited during/after review. :oops: Here's a preview:

Any suggestions/tips welcomed. Video will be added and there will be some rearrangement, additions here and there. I have been running FB ads for 20 days now. $10/day with 10 relevancy and getting 1-3 email registrations per day. My starting email list is no where large enough to get the momentum going (@30% funded?).

I've had 1 reputable site owner register but she said she will feature the product after it goes into production. :shock:

I've tried reaching out to a few bloggers, no replies for submission forms and twitter contact was silent. I know it's a numbers game and in all honesty, I didn't reach out to that many. I understand that famous sites get pitched 100-1000 times a day. So I decided to reach out to smaller blogs. My question is how do you find bloggers with small-medium sized audiences who are still active?

I've quit my job last year to start this project. Our family has enjoyed the heck out of it and we can't imagine caring for a baby without it. Our friends have tried it with their babies as well and have loved it. I find getting the word out is extremely difficult. The current plan is to ramp up the facebook ads by ~50x and continue blindly reaching out to bloggers. Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.

So it's just best not to hire any marketing companies then? They can't all be scams can they? Well, maybe i'll hire some marketing companies who don't usually work with crowdfunding projects -- I have to draw the line somewhere and I can't rationally believe that every single marketing company on earth is a scam. Right?

Big Thanks for this post and interactions. As i am digging into FB Ads etc. to do
the majority of advertising myself, espacially in the prelaunch period to collect data and generate leads through a Landingpage, its very helpfull to read all the advices.

One Question maybe lowkey or anyone can answer me ??

I dont get the conclusion about the one demografic attribute to target my audience, beside my other demografic according to my product.
3. Your audience must be interested in Paypal because whats the point targeting those who dont know about Paypal right? duh.

So why my audience must be interested in Paypal ??

Thanks Sam
