I believe there are many marketing services, paid and unpaid, which you can benefit from. Here is a link to a list of a whole bunch of crowdfunding sites, from marketing websites, to crowdfunding platform websites:

http://crowdfundingforum.com/showthread ... =platforms

Also, you are probably using kickstarter if you are on this forum, but you can always create another campaign on different platforms, like Thrinacia Atlas. With Thrinacia Atlas, you have the option of creating a campaign on an existing web portal for free, or create your own web site. The options are limitless, here is a link to the Thrinacia Atlas website:

Best of luck with your crowdfunding campaign!!!

it is always problematic how we promote our creative item to backers.
I once tried a campaign without using a marketing service and it didn't end up well(although it wasn't soley marketing problem). Therefore, I have been looking for a marketing services.
I have found some boosters like KickstarterPR, KickstarterCrux, etc. But I found that facebook is the most cost efficient one. You need to set the narrow target to focus on one group.

If you run your page (remove the draft token btw), you get 40/100 - the major issues are your images and social media not linking up.

My quick advice is that you're marketing a video game, but where's all the screen shots? Where's the hours of beta testing etc.,?

$20 for a game is pretty expensive and I'm wondering who your target audience is: gamers, kids and people who are studying to be lawyers? That's quite a specific niche that's you're focusing on :)

Best of luck.


$20 for a game is not expensive. At least not in a 1st or 2nd world country...

Working with marketing services is a chance thing it could work or not but you are spending money that could get wasted. Is it worth risking it or is it best to research and figure out the best ways to promote your kickstarter project by yourself?

Ideally you'd want to do all the research yourself, but it's time vs money.

I saw your campaign, with only $335 raised from 3 backers it's going to be hard to reach your goal :(

It looks like I got involved in this discussion a bit late.

My condolences on your campaign.

But it looks like Hyperstarter has already given you some sound advice.

The most important factor in any crowdfunding campaign's success or failure, I've come to believe, is its product/service itself, and this factor is closely tied to its price. The second-most important factor is how effectively that product/service is presented through its campaign page, which is affected somewhat by its platform. And the third-most important factor is how effectively that campaign page is marketed beyond itself to the masses. Good marketing is wonderfully helpful for well-presented highly-appealing products/services but, unless both of those other factors are good enough, then even the best marketing on Earth can't necessarily help much.

So, yes, I think that your campaign media (especially your page) could definitely use some work.

As for those marketing agencies, I'd never heard of them before, but there are zillions out there, so that's not unusual. You're welcome to consider my employer Funded Today, as well. We've been around for about 2.5 years now, worked with nearly 2,000 clients, and helped raise over $175,000,000 altogether. Just an option. You're also welcome to check out this blog and/or these public presentations for some additional tips about successful crowdfunding...

I literally have no idea of marketing and I can see that my campaign need it very badly, so I want to hire some services from a marketing company.

I have been looking tons of sites and reading forums (mostly, this one) and I discarded most companies as fraud or a waste of time and money, except for two:

https://firstwavepr.com/

and

https://crowdfundsocial.com/

But still, is a lot of money to invest when you have no income like myself, so I would like to know if anybody has used them. I'm willing to get a loan, and risk it but only if it's legit and give me a good chance to improve my odds.

I found this video that made me even more suspicious.

It seems like they are acting!!, it makes it more fishy!!

Isn't there any marketing company you can trust??? gosh!

Thanks for your time, guys!
