My 3 Tips:

1. Solid connections with mass-media.
You should create a base not for a hundred, but for a thousand journalists and, in your communication with them, it's important to create multiple points of interest that would lie in several different areas.
2. SMM is important.
All social media must be “live”, and yet it must have roots, so, if you would like to start a blog for your product, you should start it well before the campaign and then regularly update it with interesting posts that will be valuable to your audience.
3. Communication with the audience.
If your project presents an opportunity for an open dialogue of developers and customer base, you are bound to success.
You should always seek an opportunity to contact the people that are interested in your project for any reason, whether you have valuable news to share, an advice to give or simply remind them about what you are doing.

We are in the middle of our 3rd kickstarter campaign. The first 2 went great, slow, but we funded. This is the 3rd book in the series and we had a great first day, after the first batch of emails went out. Since then we've been blowing up social media trying to get backers with very little success.
Not sure if we're doing anything wrong on the social media, but we will be sending out a second batch of emails and hopefully the previous backers will come back one more time! ... ion-boxset
