Great read. I agree about setting funding goals. I wanted to set it higher because I wanted to make the project perfect and right, but looking at it now, I maybe could've cut it down a bit more so the project could actually be fully funded!

Thanks for your insights! I'm struggling my ass off here I've been in huge films with a 10k fan email list and 750k social media followers and only 130 donations in 15 days lol! :D

Thanks so much for sharing this! Very insightful!

I recently launched my project 3 days ago. It's been a slow start, so of course I have my reservations, especially after doing everything I thought was right! I've been building a social media presence, sending outreach emails... It's all very daunting and sometimes doesn't seem to pay off. I have my fingers crossed it'll pick up.

Great advice!!
As a couple of first time Kickstarters, it is helpful to read a story of both failure and success!

I couldn't agree more with all your points!

This what they don't tell you when doing your research before launching your own Kickstarter campaign.

All good advice, in my experience. Thank you for sharing it.
