Is it too late to do that now? What would be my best way of making those changes mid-campaign?

Run a voting pool, ask them to send out their emails for the next relaunch because you want to make them cheaper for the early birds (thus giving them the power to back you within the 24 hours period so you can still get them under early birds offer)

Suggested price point is $39 and funding goals of $5,000

Good luck. Read my posts in my signature, would definitely help you.

What a GREAT post! I just launched a kickstarter for a children’s book I wrote. I did a lot of research before launching to see what made or broke previous kickstarter projects that were similar to mine. I have a video, great content (I think). I even have something to offer that other children’s books on kickstarter didn’t (an animation). I worked so hard on my kickstarter page... Yet I haven’t been able to build up enough traction in my first two days, and I heard the first day is the biggest and most important. But I’m not going to give up yet! I want to try some of your advice and maybe things with take a turn for the better(: ... cture-book

What a great message and one I really needed to hear today! I think we see some many super successful Kickstarter projects that we assume it is easy and pledges will just come pouring in. No one likes to talk about how much work it takes to have a successful project. I'm going to check out your project as soon as I submit this!

Really helpful tips to keep pushing myself through our campaign, even when all seems lost.

I think the trickiest line to walk is the one Willpowered mentioned: "People hate to be sold - but they love the underdog." Being genuine, believing in yourself and your product and having pride in it, but... the tricky part... getting people to realize that your product IS worthy, but you genuinely need help to make it happen. It's sort of an "investing in humanity" idea, I guess. Put another way, if your product or idea is so great, why isn't it already funded?

I'm wrapping up my first week in a campaign for a book, and I'm at 18% funded, mostly personal circle. I'm really struggling. I know the book, "A Conversational Guide To Backcountry Equipment: How to choose & use your gear & clothing" is/would be one of the most helpful in the genre. A publisher from a major imprint said it was the best of its kind he'd seen in his decades in the biz... but he couldn't risk publishing an unknown author. I'm working my personal and business FB, Instagram, regular updates... but I'm just not getting eyeballs on my campaign. I've sent hundreds of emails, & feel like they have a "sharing" tone like Willpowered mentioned, but I don't think I've gotten a single contribution from those emails.

Right now I'm feeling like the only way to have a successful Kickstarter campaign is to have a pre-established, huge social network. I don't know how I could be any more genuine right now, reaching out of the internet ether into people's computers. If anyone has some suggestions, I could really use some help. The project is live now, at ... -equipment
