It's not just social media, I wanted to mention that. It's getting people's "Hands on" what you're doing and getting honest feedback.

To get people to promote on your behalf, you need to establish a relationship with them...a stranger asking another stranger for help isn't going to work well. If they connect with you and your campaign, then they'll be more likely to support you.

It takes time and work to comment, like and post and build up relationships with people on social media. This is a full time job and is so important to gather a following before you launch. Have people ready to talk about you or to help promote you.

The most important thing for me was making it more personal. So the social media is not pushy or salesy but rather building good content which people naturally want to follow. Also, commenting on other posts, wishing other people Good Luck on their campaigns and following and communicating with potential backers across social media so they build early trust. Am working on this now so lets see what happens - fingers crossed!

Thanks!

So far, with my first kickstarter campaign, I have learned that getting the word out seems to be what will ultimately gets people interested in funding your project. So having your link in as many places as possible is ideal. Kickstarter is tougher than you think!!
