To be a successful kickstarter campaign,
1) marketing is crucial key for success; need to use facebook, linked in, google+, and lots of forums.
2) engagement with backers
3) creativity

Dont underestimate how lazy your friends is even to go in and give 1dollar. Have a lauchparty with all friends present... its so much easier to get them to do it when you are in the room :)

Biggest thing I've learned in launching to successful Kickstarter campaign:

1. Email is king. Drive email signups well before you've launched your campaign.
2. Promote everywhere you can.
3. Facebook ads work well, if you don't just send people directly from ad -> campaign.

I'm new to kickstarter but would say reaching out to everybody you know, friend, business, sales reps everybody, before you launch. Going into it I wanted the launch to be sort of a surprise and looking back just these few days that has been my biggest mistake!

Nice replies. Some good ideas, like adding the QR code to the product; never thought of that.

Marketing is most important, I think everyone knows that. But I like learning about other things that are not obvious, like the QR codes :)
