Should I re-do campaign on Kickstarter or move to Indiegogo?

I launched a crowdfunding campaign for a book I was hoping to write earlier this year (February/March), and after it failed, I knew I had to backtrack and analyze everything I did and didn't do.

Now, I am hiring a publicist so that we bounce ideas off of each other and find a best plan of action to launch again next year. I asked him what he thought about trying again on Kickstarter or moving to Indiegogo or another site. He doesn't have a huge preference, but thinks it would be more beneficial to go to Indiegogo.

These are the reasons why I felt I should give Kickstarter another chance:

1) I already have followers on there. Not many, but I was looking around on Indiegogo, and it doesn't seem like they have a following option. Correct me if I'm wrong.

2) I think it would look better if I reach the goal, even if the goal is lower than what my first campaign's was. (Depending on how many emails I secure, the amount is going to be one that I know the campaign can reach.)

He thinks that lowering the campaign goal would look bad, which is why he sides more with switching to Indiegogo.

Any thoughts? Especially from people who have re-launched failed campaigns.

What's the niche of your campaign, how many emails have you collected, who have you written to already, what do people think about your product (people who don't know you) etc.,

Hope these questions help in your next (re)launch.
