What You Will Learn From This Guide
Preparing for launch
Don't leave success to chance. Tilt the table and load the dice in your favor by finding and building an audience before you launch your project.
Creating exciting rewards
How many tiers should you have? Should you limit quantities? Are physical rewards better than digital? Find the answers to these questions and many more.
Recording a compelling video
Your project video can seal the deal or turn away potential backers. Learn what works and what doesn't, and how to create a video on a shoestring budget.
Marketing and promoting your project
Find out which marketing channels are most effective for promoting and hyping Kickstarter projects; the answers might surprise you!
Communication and updates
No project can be successful without communication at all stages of a campaign. Learn how and when to reach out to current and prospective backers.
Fulfilling and distributing rewards
Many creators become overwhelmed or even lose money after a successful campaign. Learn the common pitfalls and best strategies for fulfillment.
The Guidebook helped immensely with my first Kickstarter campaign. Don't even think about launching without reading it!
