21 places to promote your kickstarter campaign

Published by Salvador Briggman. Find him on Twitter.

Enroll in my free Kickstarter course and learn how to raise $10k!.

I’ve received a lot of emails, DMs, and facebook messages asking for help with campaign promotion. As a general rule, I am happy to tweet out your campaign if I think it’s pretty awesome. However, please keep in mind that like everyone, I want to be treated like an individual (as I’m sure other bloggers do). When I get a pretty standard email or tweet and see the person left a similar message at a hundred other places, I am less likely to pay much attention.

When I receive a personal email and I can tell the person either has read my content or has at least taken a second to look at CrowdCrux, I am more likely to respond positively. In an ideal world, this wouldn’t be the case, but hey, I am human.

That being said, here are 21 places to promote your crowdfunding campaign. Please keep in mind that selfish mass promotion rarely works. People can tell when you don’t care about the community and just want pledges. If you plan to actually establish a relationship with these websites, bloggers, and forums, then you will have better success.

After you’ve finished with this list, check out my new article, Who’s in the Crowdfunding Community for a huge list of supporters, service providers, bloggers, and more that are interested in crowdfunding.

Note: These are crowdfunding industry centric sites. For more information about how to promote to individuals in your target industry (future customers), check out my other article.

Industry Websites


Crowd Funding Forum is a great crowdfunding industry site where you can also engage in a discussion with other project creators, track news trends, the hottest projects of the week, and also learn about equity crowdfunding. I’d recommend trying to be a bit active before going about promoting your campaign. Although you might not reach the target consumer here, you will encounter a group of people who are passionate about crowdfunding and might be willing to help you out.

Kicktraq might seem more of a tool that you can use to forecast the progress of your campaign, but it’s also good for SEO. In addition,  you can submit articles that bloggers have written about you and they may appear on the front page, which will drive traffic to your campaign. I frequently scan Kickstraq for cool new projects, so you might generate blogger interest by posting on the service as well. Learn more about it here.

KickingItForward, a tool to give back to the crowdfunding community, is a great way to drive traffic, especially when you are nearing the end of your campaign. It is also a giver’s mentality and people tend to like individuals that add value to the community rather than trying to get value out of the community and only self-promote. Learn more about it here.

CrowdfundingPR is our partner website where you can submit a free or enhanced press release for your campaign or news related to crowdfunding. You budget at least 3 days from the time of submitting an inquiry to having the order delivered, though we can rush orders in some cases. Learn more about it here.

kickstarter forum

Kickstarter Forum is also a community where creative types  can like, share, and support kickstarter projects. It’s relatively new, but has a strong group of crowdfunding evanglists behind it that are more than willing to provide feedback. Learn more about it here.

    • On it. I checked out Ayudos per your suggestion. I have done Kiva a couple times before. But, I had no idea crowd funding was so big. It’s exciting.

    • Antonio Sanchez

      Dude this is awesome thank you so much! 🙂

  • Thank you very much! I am currently working on getting a Kickstarter up for my card game and have been at a loss on promotion. It’s been kinda like being lost in space. Doing everything myself and I’m flapping my arms not knowing what to do but gotta do something or nothing will happen. This list gives me a little direction on which direction to flap. Again thanks a ton!

    This is great for my Kickstarter: The Visual Sound Project. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263069905/the-visual-sound-project

    We are looking for your
    help! After years of tireless effort on our part, hitting comic conventions,
    writing, producing and generally busting our butts… Diamond Distributors has
    picked up the Hero Envy trade paperback! However, we need to come up with the
    print run, so we are looking for your help to make this dream become a
    reality…There are some great incentives and rewards for backers, so please,
    consider lending a hand to support some artists! 150 page, full color, comedic
    graphic novel about 4 geeks who are hand picked to save the world from an
    intergalactic bully.

    Is there any data on who actually funds these campaigns outside of one’s base? I’ve been live for 5 day, had 144 views from 74 referrals and no money. I’ve done press releases, twitters to those in the aviation field and I think I’ve created a good campaign. The video is short and sweet and the ebook, if funded, is for charity as it states in the campaign.

    I guess I’m looking for a company who reviews these campaigns to give guidance on what else I should try. I’ve done Pinterest, FB, LInkedIn, Twitter and its on my email that goes out to everyone. If my base was going to give me money I wouldn’t have needed a crowdfunding campaign. I don’t have a wealthy base. Do campaigns without a base or a funding genie actually make it or am I doomed here? And I don’t have the money to hire a company to do this for me, if I did, again, I wouldn’t need the crowdfunding campaign. Gee, I sound a little frustrated, forgive me, its been long days and even longer nights.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

  • CrowdCrux

    Hey guys- Check out http://www.kickstarterforum.org for more discussion.

  • As my Dinki dinosaur comic has only 10 days left it seems to have flatlined at just over 70% http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/puttycad/dinki Most of the funding so far has come from people I interact with on twitter so I’m looking at other ways to increase my following and trying to get the last bit of funding. I just discovered this blog and will be checking out all these forums! Any tips are welcome.

    Thanks for sharing the info! 😉 Ric

    “3 days after his honeymoon, an inlisted filmmaker got ordered back to Iraq for a year. This time, he took a video camera.”

    The deal is we’ve shot the film, we’ve edited the film, we’ve shown the film in very limited screenings, but we don’t own the music rights to distribute the film. Lots of people really like this film and many want copies, including several of the soldiers in the film. Your donation will help us pay for the music rights to massively distribute the film. Thank you.


  • Jonathan


    I could certainly use help in marketing my kickstarter project, this is the first crowd funding effort I’ve attempted and I am searching for places to find the help and assistance of others.

    Please check out my kickstarter project when you have the time, I am working to help the open source community gain greater commercial acceptance and use of OpenStack which is an Infrastructure as a service (IAAS) directly competing with the big league commercial cloud IAAS providers.


    While KickerStarter doesn’t allow me to back my own project I am putting $15k of my own funds into this effort.



    • CrowdCrux

      Hi Jonathan- Sorry to see that your project was not successful. Any lessons learned? Are you planning to run another?

  • Jason

    Thanks for this info. I recently started a kickstarter project for my children’s book, Robin and the Red Rug. I’ll be looking into these communities and sites, for sure. Subscribing to your site, as well. Thanks again!


  • I have used these and are hoping to get some results. Check us out and you will see how we are doing. Learn about Coffee or get involved ( http://bloomvc.com/project/Mobile-Cafe-Business ). Get all your friends to like CUPPA DEL CAFE ( https://twitter.com/Cuppa_Del_Cafe ) and have the chance to win freebies. We will also be having special things people can buy from around the world once we are trading and have our website up and running. We will be able to take cards to pay for items at the ‘mobile coffee shop’ and these will be through mobile apps as well as the website.

  • Great help for all budding Kickstarters, Salvador! :o)

    • CrowdCrux

      Thanks! 🙂

  • Patrick

    Thanks for the helpful hints. I’m gonna try everything on this list to see if we can gain some success from it. It’s funny how big crowdfunding has become in what seems to be such a short period of time. It’s always been a mystery to me why some crowdfunders reach their goal without problems, while others don’t even come close. Well, maybe they just didn’t try all these tips yet 😉


  • Escape gamer

    Thanks for this list I bet it will come in handy. I currently have a Kickstarter project on the go until June 3, 2013. We had a lot of interest in the first few days, but we’ve noticed interest has dropped off recently. We (My two brothers, my sister and myself) are making our first video game. You can check it out at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1241450511/the-great-zoo-escape. I will try some of your tips and post a new comment to let you know how they went.


  • I am planning on making a documentary to showcase the best street food in and around London but I need people to back my project for it to become a reality: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1355466219/a-street-food-guide-to-london Thanks 🙂

  • This is really helpful. I started backing a couple projects a month ago on Kickstarter and then got the idea to do one myself. I know it is not a magical funding forum, but it really community. Thanks for bringing this up. I’m going to check out a couple of your resources.

    • CrowdCrux

      Thanks for your support Michael. It surprises me too the community surrounding Kickstarter!

  • Forrest DePoy

    This looks like it could really benefit a lot of Kickstarter projects. I’m hoping that with these tips mine will do just as good as some of the more extremely successful ones. Speaking of which, here is my kickstarter! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/648742653/the-flayed-fox-a-horror-film

    • CrowdCrux

      HI Forrest- I’ll check it out! Hope the article helps with your marketing 🙂

  • Nathaniel Tomlinson

    Really helpful information. Thanks for the post and all the advice. Just started my first Kickstarter and this will be extremely useful information. Definitely bookmarking this blog from now!

    • CrowdCrux

      Hi Nathaniel- I’m sure it’s a slightly scary, slightly exciting experience. I’m always eager to hear more about problems campaign owners are having so that I can produce articles centered around those problems. Let me know if you’d like to share any.

  • Janet Marie Lewis

    Everything seems to be so informative…I appreciate all the help, and now I am just in the process of tweeting, facebooking, emailing and foruming…


    • CrowdCrux

      Hi Janet- How has your campaign been going. Any lessons learned or thoughts to share?

  • Kingsley

    This is a great outlet to help us Kickstarter campaigners, thanks a lot. Speaking of KS, here goes my campaign for my rap artists: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/920280332/da-duo-set-to-record-full-length-album-project

    • CrowdCrux

      Of course, let me know if you have any suggestions for article topics that could add more value to your campaign.

  • CrowdCrux

    Dear readers- Take my advice with a grain of salt, but there is a lot of truth in this quote from Napoleon Hill, the author of one of the best-selling books EVER, Think and Grow Rich: “Give before you get.”

    Pure link promotion will only get you so far. Taking a second to comment on another’s campaign can make it more likely they will provide feedback or check out yours :).


    • Skyla Greenlees

      Good advice. I have been going through Kickstarer looking at the campaigns and donated to one. Hoping to help out others as well.

      • CrowdCrux

        Awesome!! 🙂

    • crowdfundingpr

      HI Skyler- This is cool! It’s like angry birds, but in real life. The video looks very professional and describes the concept well. Feel like it could a good gift-product where people will buy it for their kids or friends.

    • CrowdCrux

      HI Skyler- This is cool! It’s like angry birds, but in real life. The video looks very professional and describes the concept well. Feel like it could a good gift-product where people will buy it for their kids or friends.

      • Skyler

        thanks! 😀 do you have any tips on what i should do ? its only been up for 2 days.

        • CrowdCrux

          Spend the first week doing everything possible to drive as much relevant traffic as you can to the campaign. Not talking about senseless promotion and spamming, just a lot of hard work driving traffic.

          After the first week, evaluate the conversions you are getting. What percentage of people are pledging, watching the video, sharing, etc. based on the traffic you drove.

          Let’s say over the course of 5 days you drove 500 people. 5 pledged, an average of $15. Are they pledging at a support tier or at the tier where they receive the product? Can you forecast these results out for the remainder of 33 days? If these actions aren’t producing results needed to meet your campaign goal, what needs to be retooled?

          Use the information to pivot/adjust your strategy and promote smarter and harder the next week. Re-evaluate, lather, rinse, repeat.

          Some campaigns have a linear growth, some have more of an exponential. Never count on it being exponential. It’s kind of a trial and error game. You need to learn as much possible in as small amount of time and the only way you can learn is by getting hard data by driving people to the page.


  • Liyu

    Great advice! Thank you for posting. We launched our Kickstarter campaign 3 days ago: http://kck.st/170706f . My project is about internet of things, control electric devicces over the internet. We have a very good start, but want to find some places to promote our project. This post really helps me a lot to find the right place.

  • Rachel

    Thank you for this incredible amount of information! Can you please do a post recommending a few options to streamline the survey process? I am interested in offering 5-7 different colors in several styles of my yoga leggings when I launch my Kickstarter campaign. If I build each one as a reward, the number of rewards becomes quite confusing. Trying to figure out the most efficient and streamlined process to allow my backers to choose the specifics of their reward, whether by using Backerkit or a Shopify store.

    Hi just I found you page and find the advice extreemly useful. I will be checking out the sites you recommend. This is my first time using a crowdfunding site, the work to build a project around it has been an interesting learning curve.

    I am sure to have made many mistakes, but I guess this is how we all progress. If there is any advice you could offer me regarding my campaign, i would be very grateful.


    Kindest of regards,

    Pace Freeman,

    Have a great day.

  • I love your Blogs. Even the 30 People to Promote Your Kickstarter. You must have amazing patience to read all these comments, watch peoples videos and reply.

  • curbkickedthesocialbreakup

    Thank God for crowd funding!

    The whole concept has inspired countless products and services that may have otherwise gone unnoticed in days past. Not only does it open up new financing opportunities for entrepreneurs, but allows the public to give feedback honing the target product or service to appeal to a broader audience than it would have originally.

    And thank you so much for this post. Very informative!

    • CrowdCrux

      Thanks! I’m excited about equity crowdfunding as well and how it will help entrepreneurs.

    Thank you very much for posting this article. It has really opened my eyes as to what to do and how to go about hopefully finding the right people. I recently launched my first kickstarter project for an incredible reason:


    Some things can’t be put into words. Some emotions run too deep. My project, getting my book made into a game, is not only for myself. When I began writing, things were simple. It was about sharing my gift with the world. Just before publication, tragedy struck my family. Within 3 years, I lost my Dad, my Grandfather, both of my Great Grandparents, and one of my best friends. To add to that, my mom, now a widow, was diagnosed with the same disease that claimed my Grandfather’s life, Parkinsons.

    I chose at that point to move out of my apartment, leaving my roommates, to do the responsible thing: take care of my mother. For the last 5 years, I have lived here with her trying to take care of her and it’s hard. It gets worse everyday. I remember the woman who was so strong, who used to take walks, worked all the time, had a great attitude. Now, she sleeps all the time and can’t remember what happened that morning.

    Here’s why I began this project. Like my book, I want to not only share with the world, but I want to be able to earn a revenue stream where I can take care of her needs without having to leave her alone for multiple hours a day. I want to give her the peace of mind that everything is taken care of. I can’t do that without your help. I’m asking you to take compassion for this situation and pledge towards this project, towards her future. Thank you.

  • Andrew Neil

    Excellent stuff! I recently launched a 30-day campaign and was very excited with the results through the first few days (50% funded within 48-hours). But now, things have begun to slow down quite a bit as we reach the halfway mark (80% funded with 16-days left). I have been searching for quite a while trying to find solid resources providing helpful information on how to further promote a Kickstarter Campaign with the ultimate goal being to reach your fundraising goal and hopefully much more. I have only gone through the first 4 points but they have all been super helpful, especially Ayudos. I will certainly be visiting the rest of the links in the coming days.

    Thanks for your help, it is much appreciated. If you had a moment, please check out the campaign at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/andrewneilsutton/borninfornia-high-quality-apparel-made-in-californ. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

  • Kyle Koster

    Thanks for posting this. I’ve just started my campaign and I’m sure these will help. Would love a post about my project! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1731258877/hogjim-music-imports-innovative-guitar-accessories

    Thanks again!

    • CrowdCrux

      Congrats on the successful campaign. Would you like to share some lessons learned or tips?

      Are you planning to relaunch if you don’t hit your goal in 6 days?

  • Frankie

    Name is Cheryl, I am a single Mother of four Children. I have
    been working with young Children for twenty years. I started working in
    the Child Care field to accommodate my children’s needs when they were
    little. By working in a center that they attended. I since then have
    been to college and I am teacher certified. Now that my youngest are
    teenagers, I am becoming overly concerned with our community and the
    effect it has on them and all of their peers. One of the biggest factors
    is drug abuse, the early teens in my community have no resources or a
    place of belonging. They are simply roaming the streets and getting
    involved in deteriorating situations.


    • CrowdCrux

      I would really recommend asking some friends and family to donate to bring it up from $0.

    • CrowdCrux

      Congrats on the successful campaign! Any things you learned through the process?

  • Daniel Suffield

    Thanks for the advice. It’s not easy raising money for a webseries. I felt like I’ve asked everyone I know and hardly got a nibble yet. Though I think if we make some exclusive content for the backers only that may drive traffic. Here’s is our campaign http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingwildlife/gaming-wildlife-a-satirical-gaming-webseries

    You should check it out especially if you love gaming.

    • CrowdCrux

      Sorry to see that your project was not successful. Anything you would do differently? Are you planning to launch again?

  • Tim Booth

    Really interesting list, thanks so much for sharing your insights.

      Definitely. Hope it’s helpful.

      Cool. Let me know how it works out for you.

  • Katie

    SUCH an awesome post! Super informative and great 🙂 Thank you!

    • CrowdCrux

      😀 Of course.

  • Mike Regan

    Getting ready to launch our first KickStarter campaign and this site has been very advantageous for that purpose! THANK-YOU VERY MUCH!

    • CrowdCrux

      Great! Preparation is key and something that a lot of creators overlook. Glad you are working hard now so you can reap the benefits later 🙂

  • Jesse

    Hi, I’m not going to lie to you. I probably won’t read your blog afterwards because I’m hoping this campaign I’m currently doing will help me to start my own online business. I love the resources you’ve put together here and I’m about to go down the rabbit hole of what I thought was going to be a simple process. I was wondering if you would mind sharing mine though.

    • CrowdCrux

      Hi Jesse – I’ve been brainstorming ways to stay in touch with readers after they have run a crowdfunding campaign. I’m thinking of expanding into topics possibly: internet marketing or startups/entrepreneurship. Thoughts?

      What is the link to your campaign?

      • Jesse

        Well, my thoughts would be that there are plenty of those on the web so yours would need to offer a unique perspective from the point of crowdfunding startups since that’s the niche your site is already promoting. If nothing else, finding a way to enhance kicking it forward would be awesome. I went to the site but they only ask for kickstarter URLs. If you expand, try to get your users to do a pay-it-forward movement with Indiegogo. Offer community incentives for sticking around and helping other users. Sorry but the Crodfundingforums are seemingly dead. There is a general questions section where most of the users hang out but it doesn’t offer much incentive to check out other projects (which are in a different section). It requires major butt kissing to get noticed. When I asked for critiques on my campaign, it was moved to this section. I’ve updated it and had no feedback so I’m not saying it’s above me but I am saying that idea support should be funded on context. All-in-all, crowdfunding is a come and go field. Finding ways to make people stick around isn’t in what else you have, it’s in providing them a reason to stay past the few days that they needed you. Make them need you longer.

        Here’s my campaign though: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/online-social-classifieds-site/x/3906052

        • CrowdCrux

          Thanks for your thoughtful reply! That’s a good idea regarding the Kicking it forward. I’ll take your points into consideration :). For your campaign, why don’t you do a minimum viable product with http://www.appthemes.com/themes/classipress/

          It’s a wordpress template that costs $100 flat rate and could get hosting for $5 per month or so on bluehost and they have a wordpress one click install thing.

          Another one: http://classifiedstheme.com/

          It might not be as pretty as building the site from the ground up, but you could customize the theme and it would serve the purpose of demonstrating demand for the service.

          • Jesse

            Thanks. I still can’t afford either of those products though so I’m out of luck until I get sponsored.

  • Pam Gist

    Thank you so much! I am new to crowdfunding, and this really helped me get going!

    • CrowdCrux

      Cool! It’s a small community, but growing 🙂

  • Boy, am I sorry that I am just now finding this site. Many thanks for your useful posts! They are very well written and provide excellent knowledge. I’ll be sticking around :)!

    • CrowdCrux

      Mission accomplished! Let me know if you have any questions about crowdfunding or any topics you would like to see covered.

  • This is an incredible resource! I was just pulled into my first Kickstarter campaign and this is a great start. Thanks!

    • CrowdCrux

      How’s your campaign going so far?

      • About 19% funded, not moving as fast as I’d hoped. I’ve been busy at work and haven’t had as much time as i’d like to devote to the campaign. If you want to take a look then check out Westerly (board game) on Kickstarter.

        • CrowdCrux

          Okay I’ll take a look.

  • Kaydee Kreitlow

    That was very helpful! Thank you for the list!

    • CrowdCrux

      Glad it was helpful! 🙂 Let me know if there are any other article topics you would like to see covered on the blog.

  • Stephen Cameron

    Mr Briggman, thank you very much for the list. My project just went live a few hours ago and I look forward to making use of your knowledge-able-ness… 😛

    • CrowdCrux

      Awesome! Good luck with your campaign. Let me know if you have any questions when reading other articles via comment.

  • Kyle ‘Birdie’ Williams

    What is a good way to draw attention from backers on Kickstarter who do not know me or my business? I only did 400 dollars my first day live. Is that bad? I have a great business but I need to reach out to supports I don’t know. Check out my sport brand of the future http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/428687506/tunnel-vision-chase-your-dreams?ref=activity

    • CrowdCrux

      Hi Kyle. You should aim for 30-40% of your fundraising goal in your first week. A lot of these pledges will come from family and friends to generate momentum. A lot of creators report that at the beginning and the end of the campaign are the easiest times to attract funds and the middle is the hardest.

      To reach supporters you don’t know, you need to find these supporters through: LinkedIn groups, forums, google+ groups, etc. It really helps if you can get featured on a blog also because you will have access to their audience and can post the blog link on places like reddit, hacker news, stumbleupon, etc.

      Check out the Crowdfunding 101 section on the righthand sidebar of the website.

    Good afternoon all, how’s it going on this rather chilly Sunday… Enough of the small talk, I’m after a massive favour! This project I’m involved in needs help with funding, without funding it won’t look as awesome as we intend it to look.
    The film Will still be made with or without funding, but we want to do things the right way.
    Every penny helps and I know its a big goal, but with everyone’s help we CAN do this.
    Many awesome things up for grabs and many many more things on their way .

    The clock is ticking…


    • CrowdCrux

      How’s the campaign going so far?

      • Matthew Dylon Knight

        hi crowdcrux 🙂
        we have only just reached 1% of our goal so far, its not much but its a start, we just need to push this and get as many new people on board as possible, i’m posting to as many different sites as i can, and in the following days i shall be uploading a pledge video to explain in more detail on what we are doing , which i hope will help 🙂

        • CrowdCrux

          Keep us updated on what worked/didn’t work for you.

  • Nue

    Your blog’s very helpful to us. We’ve been looking for places where we can advertise. Check us out too! kck.st/1eJmrQt

    • CrowdCrux

      Glad it’s been helpful 🙂

  • Helen Stringer

    This was really helpful, with the lone exception of Ayudos. I opted for their $85 plan. They sent an email explaining the services under that plan. They said I should add @_ayudos to all my tweets so that they could re-tweet, and that they’d be back in touch with a detailed campaign. They re-tweeted about 3 tweets and then…crickets. I tried emailing, but received no response. So far as I can make out it’s just a scam.

    • CrowdCrux

      Hmm… I have also received a few complaints about Ayudos on the Kickstarter forum. For others reading this comment, feel free to add a review to the Kickstarter forum here: http://www.kickstarterforum.org/post2812.html#p2812

      • Helen Stringer

        Once I posted in a few places about them, their CEO Mike got in touch. He explained that they’d been having “server problems” and had been unable to communicate. I said that was ridiculous, does no one in the company have a phone? He agreed (!). He offered to return my money, but I thought I’d give them another chance. Tweets still not retweeted until I emailed them. Then he said to use #ayudos instead of @_ayudos. That seems to have worked. Then they sent me a press release they had written (part of the service), which was very poor indeed. I used to work at PR firms, Rogers & Cowan and Hill & Knowlton, so I’ve seen a few press releases in my time. I wrote my own. I don’t think they’re actually malicious, just very disorganized. Where things can be automated – like re-tweeting, they’re okay. But when it comes to actually writing a press release they don’t have the skills.

  • SashaFund

    This is a very informative article and I thank you for it. Will follow some of your tips. I already had tried the crowdfunding forum before I found your article and is a great place but so far hasn’t generated anything from it. The thing is if you could just raise from your family & friends you wouldn’t need these crowdfunding sites in the first place. But I do think they (eg.indiegogo) have a vested interest since they charge fees for any money you raise and should also try to give you a bit of exposure, rather than place you in the bottom of the barrel, even just one spot on their home page where they show randomly one by one all the campaigns. Every little bit helps because the hardest part is getting people to visit the page. Done and continuing to do the social media round, thunderclapped it, linked on sites like Reddit, and so on but little result right now since campaign started less than a week ago.

    We are trying to raise funds for specialized medical treatment for Sasha’s rare incurable disease. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/grant-sasha-a-wish-that-could-save-her-life

    • CrowdCrux

      Yes, I agree with you to a certain extent. A person could always create a personal funding page on your webpage if they only wanted to raise funds from friends and family.

      What do you think about ThunderClapped.it?

      • SashaFund

        It seems like Thunderclap is worth a try for what it could accomplish in amplifying your message, but you have to raise a minimum number of supporters for it to go out by the deadline. And if you don’t, then nothing happens. Hopefully we can gather the supporters by the deadline and then can see how effective it is. http://thndr.it/1a1WgCP

        • CrowdCrux

          What did you think of Thunderclap?

          • Dale Kensok

            StormFront is better… Thunderclap could could be a ShoutOut…. Lightning could a flash or NewsFlash. Rain could be donations. “Let the rain fall…..” etc., etc.

          • Forgive me, I was out of it and loaded on on pain killers and such at the time I answered this. I was out of it for a week. Sorry… I should have stayed off the net completely. I was pretty silly and out of it.

    Hi Salvador! Still waiting on my validation email from Kickstarter Forum, so I’ll post here…

    Happy to have found your CrowdCrux site. That’s great that you are passionate about crowdfunding. I am new to this and am always looking to learn more!

    Our family is passionate about animals, and we just launched our campaign this morning. We have a VERY unique story, and we have the backing of many industry leaders in animal rescue. Our goal is to help animals on a large scale.

    I would love for you to check us out, and I SO appreciate your time. I welcome any feedback, Salvador! Thx!!



    or: http://www.wagmovie.com

    • CrowdCrux

      Seems that your project was canceled? I’m sorry you haven’t received a validation email. Not sure why, but I’ll look into it.

      • Loulie

        Hi, I did end up receiving the email, so no worries! I made a radical decision this morning – 2 days in – and cancelled / postponed. We will relaunch in Feb. I have just learned too much in 2 days, and I know there are a couple of campaign elements I need to revise. Be back in Feb… Any of your services I need to plug into in the meantime?? 😉

        • CrowdCrux

          Sorry, sometimes the server can get backed up and it takes longer than expected. If you’d like to share what you’ve learned or plan to change, feel free to re-connect before your campaign launch.

          Would love to hear your findings and hopefully inspire others to prepare far ahead of launching .

  • Anna Maguire

    Thanks so much for including my blog http://www.crowdfundit.com.au in the list – it drives quite a bit of traffic to my site 🙂 However I feel badly as I don’t have time to feature people who approach me. I don’t tend to promote campaigns on the blog unless it’s part of a wider story. I know it’s hard for campaigners who are trying to get some exposure so apologies to all those who have contacted me via this article 🙁 But (there is a but) due to my publishing background I have an interest in projects for publishing/authors so I like to hear about them! Thanks again. Anna

    • CrowdCrux

      Hi Anna- Definitely. I think you and Rose contribute some great energy to the crowdfunding community. Yes, I agree with you in that not every creator should expect a “feature story,” but instead sell the article that they might get a mention in.

      For example, this article I just posted features several creators and I have included them because they offer some valuable information for other creators: http://www.crowdcrux.com/how-long-will-it-take-kickstarter-to-approve-your-project/

  • Katie-Trevor Nelson

    This is some great advice. Best of luck to all of you working hard to achieve your dreams as well! I’d love feed back from other launching their kickstarter projects:

    This is a great list! I only wish I knew about all the prep work PRIOR to starting my KS campaign…I know, I’ll start another campaign to make a time machine! Seriously though, I’m very thankful for all the time you put into organizing the information. Btw, I’ve sent you an email regarding the partner program. I would very much like to contribute as a thank you. Because when I succeed in my campaign, I will owe a great deal to you and this
    website. On the small chance I don’t succeed…well, I will STILL owe a
    great deal to you and the site. Oh, and here is the link to my project: http://bit.ly/sangagame. I would appreciate any support/feedback you have time for. Thanks again!

    Hi! There is a Kickstarter campaign that is near and dear to my heart. A filmmaker wants to make a documentary on the disappearance of my brother. If you would like to read more on the project, the link is below. If you have any suggestions on how we can reach more people in the final 8 days it would be greatly appreciated. His story is also on Facebook. I will also follow your recommendations above (thanks).




  • This is a terrific set of links! I was able to put some of them to use right away and learned a lot. Every day is a real education. Or should I say, trial by fire. Thanks! Eva

    • CrowdCrux

      Haha. Yes, I’m always learning about new techniques that creators find helpful. If you find any marketing strategies that are particularly helpful for your campaign (with tangible results), let me know and I’ll include you in an upcoming article.

    Hello Salvador, First I would like to thank you for enriching us with such in-depth and valuable information on promoting a Kickstarter project. One my friends has its project in Kickstarter, and I recommended him to read your article.

    Hello everybody we have a campaign live on Kickstarter at
    the moment. We have a great innovative cookware product. It’s one of a kind
    nothing out there like this. It’s an all in one cutting board. Which has a pull
    out draw on each side. On one side is for the trash and the other side is for
    cut food. It has a knife sharpener. A squeaky spatula to clean the cutting
    board from all liquid and debri. A chopper detaches it’s self from the spatula.
    Special grippers so the cutting board does not slide. The cutting board is
    anti-bacteria. We have a lot of press out there but can use more. I am sending
    you the link to our campaign and our press release. Thanks so much for your

    Thanks so much

    I am on the verge of launching my KS campaign. I looked up websites that can help promote KS or other crowd funding campaigns, and your crowd crux page came up! What great information and other sites to visit. I have submitted my stuff on Prefundia.com and will wait for them to let it go live. I should have done all of this weeks ago, because I have submitted my page to KS and will have it go live once they approve. I will get back on here and leave a link to my page when it is up.

    I have been blown away with how much success many of the KS campaigns have. There was a simple magnet pen a couple months ago. They guy wanted to raise $14K, he ended up with $817K after 36 days. Amazing! Thank you again for providing this information. I will post my gloves on here when it goes live.

    I was just approved on Prefundia: http://prefundia.com/projects/view/vo-gloves-vaughn-originals/530/

  • Thank you Salvador! I found a few projects to back on the comment section on this article. : )

    • CrowdCrux

      Well that’s pretty baller. Makes me smile to see you supporting other creators.

      • Thanks, but naw, I find it addicting to help out other creators. It’s rewarding to be a part of something that you can see someone is really serious and passionate about. I will check back to see more projects on this blog soon. Have to wait for payday : ).

  • Eric Vaughn

    I recently launched my KickStarter campaign. Friday evening….. probably not the best time to start, but I am going to use the sites I have seen from this page to help it. I am excited and nervous at the same time. This should be fun. My product is gloves with a convenient zipper on the back of the hand for quick access without completely removing the gloves.


  • Mezba Uddin

    Thanks a lot for your informative blog.

  • I humbly suggest that CrowdFundBuzz.Com be included in the conversation of crowdfunding promotion.

    Okay, so after backing a few projects on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, I gotta say, it’s becoming an addiction! I have started my own project here: http://kck.st/1itzsC4 and have a really fun $2 reward option.

    • Hey Salvador, I meant to post a small pic, but it has published as ‘Guest’? Anyway, this is a duplicate post, so you may please delete it! Have a great whatever time of day it is where you are!

    Yep. Just started my campaign – Googled around a bit. I wasn’t totally clueless, but didn’t realize this was already a science. Glad to see that I had the right idea. But it will be a steep climb.

    • CrowdCrux

      Keep me updated on your campaign :). Let me know if you have any questions related to crowdfunding.

  • Mike

    Funny that my comment parallels all those below: “this is awesome; thanks; I’m using all the info; before I started, I had no idea this world existed.”

    thank you for this article ! check out our new kickstarter project for a hiphop chicago cypher https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/413146128/sicker-than-your-average-the-chicago-cypher

    • CrowdCrux

      Would recommend asking more friends/family to pledge to get it up from one backer. On average, most campaigns should expect to raise at least 25-30% from friends, family, colleagues, etc.

  • Chast Wolfe

    Thanks for the advice. One question I noticed that was neglected by several crowd funding campaigners was, “why is your cause truly important to yourself?” Not what you’re going to achieve, your goals, how it will change the world, but why are you truly do it..

    It took me awhile to understand the context of that question and the significance. It took me even longer to answer it.

    I started a campaign on indiegogo called the Wounded Dog Project to help injured dogs. And hers my answer to why its important to me:

    At one place in time, I had two dogs. At moments of tribulations, when friends and family were nowhere to be found, those two dogs were my friends and my family. Not all see animals in the same light, and not all have such a bond. Though this site is about preserving the life of animals and helping the unhelpful, it’s even more about relationships. Animals are important, humans are important, but the relationships we make are made of the things that tie us together and deliver a since of existence. Without that connection of a relationship, the knowledge of existing would be lost to obscurity. The two dogs I had where a reflection of my conversation, my emotions, anything I needed at those moments. Though I personified them, it was that connection, that relationship that caused me to relinquish that boundary of human and animal. The importance of what I am doing not only resides in the nature of saving an animal’s life, it is found in the idea that humanity needs relationships, canine or not.

    Thanks for your time,


  • Mike

    As requested, here’s the not so good update. I know it’s a lofty goal, and I know the issues I have. I did not expect that friends and family wouldn’t support. I’m doing all of the right things, but the presentation is subpar – I’m driving a TON of traffic to “my brand,” but no one donates. I really thought I’d get bloggers, tv, media coverage – it’s my field – thought it would be a bit easier.

      You should expect to generate about 30% of your funds from your own social network. Would recommend directly messaging friends, family, coworkers, etc. initially to get your backer count up from 0.

  • Jessie Brazil

    Just went through every link you provided to help get my wife’s Kickstarter more traffic and support. Her product is designed more towards parents (it’s a children’s pillow) and I’m having difficult finding a better way to help crowdfund in this area. It seems the majority is geared more towards comics and technology. I read your article for the 5 tips for a better campaign and plan to follow up with some smaller mommy/parent blogs. Do you have any additional suggestions? She just launched 2 days again and Kicktraq had her hitting 149% of her goal, which would fantastic but I’d like to seek every avenue possible to make sure that happens. If you have some time, can you please take a look and any suggestions you may have in addition to the ones above? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/586907288/boosterpalz-the-portable-pal-who-wont-let-you-down

    • CrowdCrux

      I gave you some tips on the KickstarterForum.org, but I think mommy/parent blogs would be a great bet – especially if you can provide them with a prototype to write a review (which would be helpful even after Kickstarter).

      Basic format:

      1. Have you tapped out your social network?

      2. Where do the communities that care about this product exist? Blog audience? Forums? Online groups? In person groups? Supporters of a non-profit or NGO that promotes child saftey?

      3. Test out approaching those communities using guidelines I’ve outlined in other articles like http://www.crowdcrux.com/how-to-get-bloggers-to-blog-about-your-kickstarter-indiegogo-or-pozible-campaign/ and see which channels are best for you.

      4. Assess what’s working, what’s not, and retool.

      In my experience, spending an entire day on google just searching for communities and blogs in your niche can work wonders (also, the more local, the better).

      For others reading: It’s just like school, you need to do the homework. No one’s going to do it for you unless you pay a consultant.

      I offer some of these items as a service on CrowdfundingPR.org

    this is a great blog.

    Please help me to fund my project.

    • CrowdCrux

      Thanks! Hope your campaign is successful. Do you have any questions about crowdfunding?

  • Found this so helpful. Thank you. We are old people and visual artists getting ready to launch a campaign on kickstarter in about a month. Gives us a little time to read the myriad of comments and go thru each of the 21 places in depth. Several people have told me that being picked up on reddit was their biggest boost, but that site confuses me. Any thoughts?

    • CrowdCrux

      There was one member on the KickstarterForum.org site that was picked up by reddit and got a huge boost in pledges.

      What confused you about it?

      Would recommend reading through a few of these before launching your campaign: http://www.crowdcrux.com/best-crowdfunding-articles/

  • Bonic Studios

    Thanks for this list! Great idea. I really hope we can get more attention to our Indiegogo movie project campaign this way!


    • CrowdCrux

      Definitely 🙂 We have a twitter promotion going on in IndiegogoForum.org btw.

      • Bonic Studios

        Oh, cool! I read the instructions and it seems I have to put a comment in one of the articles, just like I’m doing right now haha, with a link to our twitter account and the campaign? here are the links: Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/bonicstudios and http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/jackpot–4/x/4210921

        I really hope you can help us with our funding.


        • CrowdCrux

          Need to leave the information in the thread on the forum. Sorry.

  • Erick Mattos

    I am not using Kickstarter though, I am using http://Sponger.Me/ it basically has no deadlines, no fees and it’s a community of people who help fund each others own personal or business goals. I’m the bald guy riding the skateboard haha.

    • CrowdCrux

      Interesting. Is that a new platform? How did you hear about them?

      • Erick Mattos

        I googled crowdfunding no fee then crowdfunding website with no deadlines and I kept going through different keywords to find one. I kept getting kickstarter and a few pages later I saw Sponger lol

        • CrowdCrux

          Cool! What do you think of the platform so far? Wonder how they make money if there is no fee.

  • I was looking around and I’m really glad you made this blog. Helped me out tremendously as I was having next to no luck sharing on my facebook page. I look forward to seeing just how much success I can manage after reading! Thanks much. If you have time, maybe you could check my kickstarter out too. 🙂 http://tinyurl.com/pdrosjk

    • CrowdCrux

      Have you tried direct messaging friends? What kind of feedback have you gotten?

  • An excellent article. I’ve gone through the sources 1 by 1 and made use of them. Thanks!


  • Raj Sark

    The list is really helpful! and like that the page talks directly to project creators like us. One thing I had been considering about Campaign duration – 30 days is right or wrong? As first time creators, I feel first 2 weeks are mostly the learning phase. We had a great first day then pledges reduced to apx. £500 a day more or less constant. So a longer campaign may have resulted in more exposure? Either way, the past 3 weeks been super fast and we now have 1 week to go, 75% funded and hope to make the mark. Any feedback is awesome! check out LUPO on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1gyVq22 🙂

    • CrowdCrux

      The first two weeks are absolutely crucial for those reading. You will be doing a lot of rapid learning, but it’s also important you’ve done as much as possible before launching so that you have a strategy you can execute on.

      Sometimes this is true, like you said, with a longer you have more time to accept pledges, however, it’s a lot harder to maintain momentum. You can also create a pre-order page after Kickstarter or a donation page and direct new backers there to continue accepting pledges after the time runs out.

      I usually provide feedback on KickstarterForum.org

    I found this really great, thank you! Kickstarter is one thing, but there’s also Tubestart. Check out our campaign: https://www.tubestart.com/projects/jersey-to-syracuse–sketch-comedy-team/3392

    • CrowdCrux

      What made you decide to use tubestart instead of other crowdfunding platforms? How did you find out about it?

      • Julia Olteanu

        Since “Jersey to Syracuse” is a YouTube channel, we decided to use a crowdfunding platform specifically for YouTubers and web series creators in hopes of branching out within the community. Matt Cobuzio and Nick Matarazzo are the creators of the channel, and Matt, an already established YouTuber, found TubeStart as a way to fund the channel and future endeavours.

  • Good blog well done

  • Jason Bell

    Hi Salvador. My name is Jason Bell, President and Owner of STARRING U! Live Karaoke LLC. I started reading your crowd funding articles yesterday, and finished them all up today. After I finished the last article, I went to my Kickstarter account and cancelled it!! LOL! I totally was not ready to launch. I was thinking I could start the marketing campaign the day after I launched the Kickstarter. I basically did everything you said not to do. So, I’m going to revamp, get my ducks in a row for the next month, and relaunch after I’ve followed your steps. Thank you so much for sharing such invaluable information, you’ve helped countless fools as myself get on the right path to a successful Kickstarter campaign!

    • CrowdCrux

      Glad you’re taking time to get your ducks in a row (love that phrase). I think KickstarterForum.org would also be really helpful for you and you can ask any questions you have as you’re preparing for the launch :).

      Thanks! Let me know if you have any questions I can help answer. 🙂

      • David C. Miller

        Well the biggest hurdle I am having is reaching out to people outside of my own circles. Friends and family have the almost guaranteed 40% or so donations but I still need the last 60%ish percent. Time is getting close to the end here and I’m a bit nervous!

    This article has been very insightful. I hope you will have more publishing soon, there is hope for newbies like myself!


    • CrowdCrux

      How’s your project going so far? Is this if your first Kickstarter?

      • This is our first Kickstarter. We’re 30% to goal after three days. I’ve been following in general many of the tips I’ve been reading in the various crowdfunding locations. With the glut of information, it’s a bit difficult to discern which courses of action to pursue that will give us the best bang for the buck. I’ve been concentrating on the essence of our project. We’re staging a classical music concert. The concert is to commemorate the Holocaust prisoners who performed the same program while being detained in the death camp. So I’ve been sharing information with both of those areas as we’ve moved forward. If there are any further clues or tips you can suggest, I’m all ears!

    Hi there,

    I am doing a charity/volunteer trip around Europe and I have just set up the page, and it needs a kickstart. I appreciate any amount – even £1 would help me! All the money is going into a cause – and I am funding the rest of the trip with my money alone – which isn’t a lot either, but it’s a chance to help people and do some good!

    I’d be very grateful if you could take a look – thank you!

  • Herb Meehan

    This is like a graveyard of failed kickstarter projects (within all the comments here). Anytime I see a comment /with link on one of these kickstarter advice sites – you just know campaign has already ended and 98% from their goal. I’ve learned a lot during the past few weeks reading these types of sites – trying via Googling your way to a successful crowd funding campaign is an instant failure.

    • CrowdCrux

      Yes, I don’t think you can “google your way to a successful project.” It takes a lot of hard work, preparation, and trial and error. Some people fail the first time and end up succeeding the second time taking what they’ve learned into account. When I wrote this article, it was meant to serve as an initial way to quickly familiarize yourself with some of the blogs and communities out there related to crowdfunding, not to be the sole promotion strategy.

      Definitely! Glad the blog is helpful! We have a free twitter promo going on for Indiegogo campaigns at: http://www.indiegogoforum.org

  • Black Sapphire

    This is perfect. We are currently raising funds for our project with BLACK SAPPHIRE PRODUCTIONS. These links are incredibly helpful! I thank you! 🙂

  • Eremin Alexander

    You are promoting PR company, it is not free place

    • CrowdCrux

      I am confused by your comment. What’s not a free place?

  • Gina Buccini

    Hi Salvador! I’ve got family and friends for the first 19% of my campaign. Love the info here. Wish I would have seen this before I launched on Kickstarter. My book project is a beautiful art book of twenty women of the Bible. Do you recommend different PR channels for those who support spiritual/religious works?


    Thank you! I may want to do one of your paid services.

  • Another great article!

    • CrowdCrux


  • I should have discovered this much sooner. Do you think this campaign can make it? http://kck.st/1nXcaIl

    • CrowdCrux

      Looks like you canceled it. Are you planning to relaunch?

      • Yeah, we didn’t reach the funding goal, we were close though so we are relaunching in July. Anything you think we could do different for next time on the page?

  • I have been looking over the CrowdCrux site and there is almost too much info for me to grab on to. Personal issues have come up in the middle of my first kickstarter project and it has affected my ability to promote myself. I see others asking for help have posted their projects here so I am putting my project link up here- I hope that is not against any rules. I am hoping fellow Horric comic fans will grab on to this project and help me fly it! Pass the link please & thank you.

  • Tony Spencer

    Thank you. Im trying to raise money to launch my first fashion collection http://www.kisskissbankbank.com/tony-spencer

    • CrowdCrux

      First campaign I’ve seen from KissKissBankBank! Why did you choose them over Ulule?

  • Clara Saenz

    Wow! This is so helpful! Thank you so much!

    • CrowdCrux

      Awesome that it’s helpful 😀

  • Aaron Trumm

    This is an extremely helpful jump off point. Thank you for doing this!

      You’re welcome!

  • I just googled best ways to market your kickstarter campaign and came across this article. I had no idea there were so many communities based on crowdfunding. Thanks so much for the original content. I’ve learned a lot along the way and will be spending some time going through this article now. Here’s my kickstarter if you want to know more about my journey.


    • CrowdCrux

      Thx for sharing. Congrats on raising 2.4k so far. You’re definitely in good shape considering your fundraising duration.

      • Yes I should raise my specified goal, the problem is I haven’t figured out the recipe to driving a substantial amount of traffic to my project. I’ve only had a handful of bloggers get back in contact with me to do a writeup thus far.

  • Sara

    Wow, thank you for the great information. I’m doing my first kickstarter now and am looking for ways to build momentum to reach my goal. My project is a romantic suspense novel and I am raising funds for doing a professional layout and cover design. Here it is:

    • CrowdCrux

      Happy to see the information is useful 🙂

  • Johanna Lehmann

    Yeah, agree with all of the guys-those resources are great. I just launched on Indiegogo and am working 24hrs on the success of the campaign. Join us and see what we do if you love San Francisco, startups & good books: http://bit.ly/HowtoloveSF

    • CrowdCrux

      Cool! Keep us up to date as you progress. What made you choose Indiegogo over other platforms?

  • Thanks for posting this information. I appreciate it. We are about in the middle of our kickstarter.

    • CrowdCrux

      You’re welcome!

  • Thanks for this info Sal! This is my first campaign, we are about 30% to our goal and on track, but so far all of our pledges have been from people I know and even though I’m sending personalized emails, tweeting, posting all encouraging my friends and family to share I worried about reaching more than just my sphere. I just posted a thread on Crowd Funding Forum and will definitely be working on some more of these suggestions, but any other feedback would be very much appreciated!


    • CrowdCrux

      Interesting. I have never heard of SeedKicks. What made you guys choose that platform? How do you like it?

      • SeedKicks is a new platform, we are in the very first round of crowdfunding, but it was a friend of a friend who started it so I felt comfortable. But we are definitely missing some exposure just from being on a larger platform.

  • Samuel Githinji

    Wow!! Thanks a lot for this information. I am really seeking for ways through which I can promote my campaign and I am glad to have gotten some tips that I am sure will help me.

    • CrowdCrux

      Definitely! 🙂

    This winter, we will finally enter the studio to record our next album!!
    We are very happy to tell you that Magnus Öström, world famous jazz artist (Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Magnus Öström Group etc.) will be producing the new album and we are now launching a Crowdfunding project on Indiegogo to fund the recording! Here you will get the chance to support us and receive some very special rewards!

  • A very good post spreading the word of Crowdfunding. Have a look at new crowdfunding portal in india. http://www.start51.com

    • CrowdCrux

      How’s the platform going so far?

      • As of now , Out of 6 projects, Start51.com successfully funded 3 projects from different categories and going to launch new projects very soon.

  • Thanks for the info!

    Hey guys! Here is the link for a kickstarter campaign for a film about a girl who accidentally kidnaps her ex’s new girlfriend and chaos ensues. The intent with this project is not only to make a comedic short film but also to increase the number of films being made that are female driven, with female protagonists and keep women from just being locked into the typical supporting roles that they often are. In addition to that, Ex-Napped is a comedy that focusses on the crazy antics that goes through a person’s head (male or female) after a break up and bases itself around a person who acts on one of these antics and gets herself into trouble, causing a series of hilarious consequences. Check it out, donate and spread the word! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1291763173/ex-napped

  • Nagarjun Kinaré

    Very useful article. I started my Indiegogo campaign about 2 days back. I happened to read a question from you in the comments section which said, ‘Why did you choose Indiegogo ?’, well if you had to ask me that question I would say the reason is that Indiegogo allows campaigns from almost all countries, whereas Kickstarter does not allow the same.

    Please do check out my campaign here:

    • CrowdCrux

      Glad the article is useful. Good point regarding Indiegogo.

  • Michael Simonds

    My 11yr old daughter was recently challenged with creating an invention at her school. Winners were selected to go on to the UCONN invention convention to compete. To make a long story short, her invention won the Patent Award and lawyers are submitting her invention to be patented free of charge. We are trying to help her generate funding so that a prototype of her idea can be designed. We started an indiegogo campaign but it’s not going too well. I came across your site while looking for ways to promote her idea. Any pointers you can give a young inventor in getting more traffic? This is her indiegogo page.


  • Denver Thomas Cayetano

    Thanks… This helps. I’m just got my Indiegogo campaign going http://igg.me/p/802659/twtr/7704983 … Hopefully it can gain some traction now

    • CrowdCrux

      Good luck!

    Thank you for this blog. Kickstarter is a lot more difficult than I Imagined. Anyone got advice what to do when it goes stale and you need to push it again

    Hello, I just started a crowdfund on gofundme.com has anyone else tried this site? I’m trying to start a coffee shop/bakery in a small town that gets a lot people who go through it in order to get to Kings Canyon National Park. My town doesn’t have much to offer for them though except 2 gas stations, a pizza place, a hardware store and a car parts store. Anyone have ideas of how to put the word out other than Facebook etc? Help or opinions are very welcomed.

    • CrowdCrux

      I think your local paper would be a good idea. You could consider pre-selling coupons or discounts for people that support the campaign in the local community and use flyers to make people aware of that?

  • Quentin Stone

    Great guide, it has helped us a lot. We started a project on Kickstarter and needed help funding it, this article helped us get the word out!

  • Ariane Li

    I have been following your articles for months now and it really provides valuable insights. Thank you! We are based in HK so the concept of crowdfunding is less strong. We are currently raising money for a stackable expandable home media hub, hackable for the those who want a new toy but super user friendly interface built especially those less tech savvy

    • CrowdCrux

      🙂 Thanks for the kind words. Glad the articles have provided valuable insights. I hope you are successful!

  • Thanks for the info. Not sure on the right approach to reach out to the forums listed above…how many do you believe I should contact? I am all ready to launch my kickstarted program but just want to have all my marketing lined up before.

    • CrowdCrux

      They are a starting point to get involved in before launching. Contribute a bit before posting your link. However, I’d recommend generating a similar list as this one for your niche (gaming, comics, etc).

  • Theresa Gallagher

    Hi there. I’ve just launched my short film campaign. It’s a darkly hilarious tale of an Orthodox Jewish teen who spends his first night alone guarding a body awaiting burial. I’m not Jewish, but spent 3 years working in a Kosher Restaurant where I became fascinated with the laws and traditions of the people. I’m looking for places to post my link where the Jewish community may take interest. Any advice?

  • Andreja Popovik

    Probably the most useful article when crowd funding is concerned. The forum is great also, lot’s of helpful people there too. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kidsplace/kids-place-play-it-safe

    Probably the most useful article when crowd funding is concerned. We’ve launched our Kickstarter Kids Place three days ago and we’re using this list to spread the word. Thanks a lot for compiling this list. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kidsplace/kids-place-play-it-safe

    • CrowdCrux

    Hello from Singapore, and thanks so much for compiling, it has been really helpful. I started my shortfilm campaign on indiegogo and hopefully it will get funded 🙂

  • Thank you for providing such valuable resources! I am only three days into my Kickstarter project and have tweeted, facebooked, and emailed. While trying to figure out how to gain more exposure, I stumbled across your blog. Many thanks.


  • Carter Rodman

    Thanks for this! I’ve gotten about 800 views on indiegogo, but i’ve only taken in 4 donations. I think your suggestions will help a lot! http://igg.me/at/theroadtotheshow
    How important is twitter followers vs facebook likes?

    • CrowdCrux

      Well, with facebook you are competing against edgerank to get views. The click through rate is lower on Twitter though. I’d say both strategies are important.

  • Elizabeth

    This is really helpful, I had no idea there were so many resources like this. I just started my kickstarter and I think I need a different audience than my facebook friends alone. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2062755400/bring-art-to-the-youth-of-ecuador?ref=nav_search

  • Bart Woodward

    Thanks for the info Salvador, great stuff! I just launched my first project, and my first backer referred me to your blog. I’m glad he did. If you get a chance I’d love some feedback/advice on my project. I am looking for the best ways to genuinely engage backers without spamming forums. Thanks


    • CrowdCrux

      Glad it’s helpful! Hope your project is successful. I can provide feedback on KickstarterForum.org

  • ianna

    Your articles have been popping up pretty frequently while i’ve been scrambling to put together, launch and market my kickstarter, and I’ve gotten a lot out of reading them, especially this one, as marketing has now become a source of stress. So thank you! Do you have any additional advice for kickstarters for books?

    here’s the link to my project, if you want to check it out. 🙂


    • CrowdCrux

      You’re welcome! I don’t think I’ve written any articles on books specifically. My ebook has a lot of advice, and we also provide advice on KickstarterForum.org

  • cat mario online

    Great article! I just wanted to say this post is right on the money. Apps are difficult to market, and games specifically have there own challenges. Video is definitely one of the best tools to get started with, and search engines love video. Most apps need explanation with a voice over, but most games dont, so you really need to present the game play in an enticing way and keep it short. You can make one yourself easily with your developer tool and a decent screen recorder. It takes some time but its well worth it. You
    could also just pay somebody to do it. I personally have used blue fortress media to make mine, but I know there are other good ones like appvj, wyzowl, and demo fuck. Either way good luck to you! And once again great article.

    • CrowdCrux

      You’re welcome!

  • Thank you very much for publishing this article I agree with most of the points in this article, Most of Adam’s suggestions are good however there is some misrepresentation: Bright local CONTACTED 20,000 U.S. based businesses of those 668 responded to their 13 question survey. This is a very small sample in such a large country and questions rise when 20,000 SMB’s were asked to participate and they only receive a 0.334% response rate.
    Having a look at the respondents results in question four, SEO is the second highest rated marketing channel.
    The best option i believe, for a new SMB is to start with an attractive, functional, accurate, and responsive website, then a metered SEO campaign, and PPC following. We have used this process for many of our smaller clients and it has proven very effective for them.
    The beautiful thing here is all this online marketing generates a reputation through Word of Mouth, as long as their product/service
    is of quality and their staff provide a positive experience.

  • Wen Du

    Started my campaign a week ago http://igg.me/p/863985/twtr/8171714, learned that social media building base/friendship is important.

    • CrowdCrux

      Very true!

      • Wen Du

        I didn’t do enough research on crowdfunding, so now I’m spending my day tweeting my campaign to various individual/organizations; what I should’ve done was building relationship first.

        Granted I met quite a few art related individuals, but the worst part of crowdfunding is these PR companies wanting you to pay exuberant amount of money with no guarantee of success.

        Here’s a drawing for replying to me, I hope this will show people that I CAN draw and I’m getting better reach drawing. So please if you read this reply plug my campaign 🙂

  • Hello CrowdCrux, I am grateful that you have made a compilation of crowdfunding sites & networks. I am feeling really discouraged that my Kickstarter campaign is stalling. I am seeking $15,000 to open a dance studio in Cincinnati, Oh. I thought that when my friends & family heard that I was conducting a fundraiser to acquire a studio space, the pledge goal would have been met in a matter of days; boy am I wrong. I don’t understand what I am doing wrong. The people I’m turning to know my true intentions, have worked on one of my companies productions, or their child has taken one of my classes. I’ve always heard, “Mr. Ben, where are your studios located – I’ve been wanting to start working out & dance again – I want my child to train under you”, and now I’m turning to some of those same people for support to create a place where we can do all the classes & productions we’ve only been talking about; but only 5 backers have supported this project & we’ve raised $106. I’m going to join as many of the sites you suggested as I can; I believe in my vision & I know that I can help add value & enrich my community. I really want to help people & dance is a discipline that can change behavior in a positive way, make a person physically fit, & focuses the mind – Again, Thank You.

    • CrowdCrux

      Well, if you don’t find success with this campaign, you could always consider something like peer-to-peer lending, an angel investor, or a loan. I think because your campaign is so locally focused, your best bet would be seeing whether or not your local community is willing to support it.

      The fact that people are not willing to support who are your previous customers might also be some good feedback. I’d dig deeper into why they aren’t.

  • Not to leave to many comments, however, I have read several of your articles now regarding crowdfunding, and I keep looking for more. The information here is beyond what I was hoping to find and this feels as if it will become a reality, my KickStarter that is. Thank you

    • CrowdCrux

      Thank you! There is also a lot of great info on KickstarterForum.org and CrowdfundingForum.com 🙂

      • Thanks for the advice. Been on the first, lots of good information. Makes me feel as if my idea has a shot. I clearly feel it does, but do the rest of us?

  • Thank you for posting these great tips! It is a great resource to someone who is new to the Crowdfunding platform or for those like me. I am about as much of an IT, PR or SEO guy as I am a Chip-N-Dale Dancer!
    Of course I am a bit bias when I say this, but I am like 99% of the other campaigners out there that feel that “If I could just get eyes on my campaign, I would explode!” And that of course is the challenge. We spent over 6 months developing our campaign to make sure our perks and referral contests were going to be enough, Our perks include gift certificates to merchants of contributors choice, quarterly travel credits for Expedia.com, vacations and most importantly 20% of all contributions will be donated to the 4 most voted on charities.
    We hope these will help us gain traffic using your tools! Thanks again for your help and any/all feesback is always appreciated!
    Our campaign is at http://www.igg.me/at/eazyer
    Thanks again and good luck to all!!!

  • Jacquie Wallis

    Thank you Salvador for such an informative blog. I found you when I did a search for ‘ways of promoting my Kickstarter campaign’. I’m going to start putting some of these methods to use & see how they work for me. I don’t personally have a ‘Kickstarter’ campaign, I’m helping someone else with theirs. There are only 8 days left and he’s only 23% funded. So, the pressures on 🙂 Promoting on FB & Twitter; anyone that has anything to do with #NikolaTesla, #crowdfunding help, #indiefilm etc., but it hasn’t been enough. So, that’s where the other places/methods found on your blog may help us finish this campaign successfully. Thanks again Salvador. I’ll be back in 8 days or so to let you know how it went. Have a great weekend. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bhramayana/tinker-a-feature-film-for-tinkerers

  • This is a great collaboration, glad I found it. We just launched a pretty unique kickstarter that is generally focused on creating a much larger impact then that of our project alone.

    Thank you for the info. I am a high school student who spent the summer in Guatemala training deserving boys and girls in soccer. My kickstarter campaign came from the lack of quality soccer balls for boys and girls to play. So I started oNe Soccer Ball, Buy oNe, Give oNe! http://goo.gl/gRc8uU What advice do you have for young people trying to launch a kickstarter campaign? Olivia

    Hi, I want to tell you a little bit about my project: WormPie. WormPie is a punk geek clothing line for men and women with unique designs. It is a combination of my imagination and raw talent for doodling. My goal is £8000 and I believe with some traffic and support I can definitely make it. I put a lot of heart into my page including visual imagery, interesting narrative and some great rewards including: 3 items from the collection, a hoodie, a discount card for life and an original sketch all for £75 Please take a look, I don’t think you will be dissapointed! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/448928312/wormpie?ref=nav_search

  • Timmie Henderson
  • This is a really great foundation to work from. How do you see crowdfunding evolving overtime as the space becomes more and more competitive? Being able to differentiate by the fundamentals of your campaign versus the PR aspect, I believe is going to be much more difficult for the under capitalized inventors of the future.

  • Jimmy Morales

    Maybe I jumped the gun and am not familiar enough on this one, but what is the difference between Kickstarter and Kickstarters? I just launched my campaign (Trendfits) on Kickstarter and am starting to see the rule-of-thumb for crowd-funding is self-promotion, like franchises do… Bleh! That just doesn’t sound right!

  • Thank you so much Salvador for this post, and of course just maintaining this site. Seriously awesome and helpful! I have the problem of diving in head first and figuring out things as I go, and since starting my Kickstarter on the 4th, I have learned a ridiculous amount and gotten over a lot of anxiety on talking to people I don’t know, especially those I’m in awe of. We’re all the same and connected anyways, right?? So out of my comfort zone and loving it! If you’re a geek, or like leather, or like customized items have a look at my project. I don’t care how this Kickstarter goes, because this is going to be my life no matter what, and I’m going to give it all I’ve got! http://bit.ly/Geekkickstart

  • Lol, I wish I had found your site before I started all this. I didn’t even know kickstarter had a forum. Unfortunately I am a social media newbie. I don’t even have a smartphone.

    You really have no idea just how helpful this is. Normally post here http://seekingalpha.com/user/1775551/instablog and reach a decent audience

    I have tried posting here, https://exploreb2b.com/articles/life-starts-with-a-whimper

    but hardly anyone in going here.http://kck.st/1CzkJjP

    I feel like this is a revolutionary step for online gaming, but apparently I am incompetent enough for no one to notice.

    I will try my very best at your suggestions

    Thank you

  • Great advice, very succinct and well-organized! On a side note, I feel like kickstarter campaigns are all about mass-marketing than a well-thought out product/idea. Seems like it’s all tie-clips and tea cozies instead of innovative designs.

    Either way, I hope your tips will help improve my campaign! For musicians interested in a motion-controlled effect, check this out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/13486643/munchbox-motion-controlled-expression-for-your-gui

  • Jett Pesson

    Hi my name is Jett. I am making an app that helps people make a meal plan to fit their lifestyle if they are trying to reach a certain goal and work in the gym but don’t know how to eat right. It helps and its personal. You can choose meals you like best and it shows you how to cook them and only suggests meals that help the user reach their goal weight. Also shows the user a map of grocery stores nearest them where they can get the ingredients needed to do it all themselves because meal prep systems and such are expensive and this helps the average joe do everything themselves to eat like a pro because lets face it 80% of results are made in the kitchen. Everything is finished except for the coding which is really expensive. I made a kickstarter not knowing how to promote it and now im frantically looking for ways. I just came across this forum and it gave me hope. I need some promoting bad. Its a great idea with great designs and its patented. If you don’t want to promote or tweet me out its fine but at least check it out for yourself by searching (instant meals) on kickstarted. thanks for reading and hope you believe.

    I launched a kickstarter campaign (see LIDSBEE) a couple days ago and I think its suffering from very low visibility. Most of the people that contacted me are trying to sell their marketing services, but have shoddy reviews. I found your blog very useful and will subscribe 🙂 and go through the listed companies. Any feedback on my campaign would be wonderful.

  • Thanks for your article! As introverts, we were really hesitant to get the final elements of our project in place. The only reason we haven’t launched yet is we’re a little on the self conscious side.

If there are any music enthusiasts, recording artists, musicians, audio geeks that love a good studio, please take a moment to see what we’re looking to accomplish =) Thanks, CrowdCrux, for the informative article!

    Hi All

    I’m launching a new independent reportage heavy magazine in the style of LIFE and Paris Match from days gone by.

    trying to fund the launch via a KickStarter and we’re reaching out to
    fellow professionals and enthusiasts with a vested interest in a
    healthy, buoyant independent media to help us spread the word and
    hopefully aid our campaign in it’s reaching it’s target.

    This is
    the link to our campaign. If you could help spread the word we’d be very
    grateful. We’re offering generous rewards for all our pledge requests
    so get involved.


    Support independent media and keep print alive.


  • Hi, thank you for all the info. We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, and it’ll be awesome if you guys check it out. Any comments, feedbacks about our project, and the campaign are welcome!:) http://kck.st/1FebNMp

  • Mr Gray

    This has been very helpful. Hopefully it works out for me. I was trying to create a project against Racism but, I’m also in a predicament because my wife and daughter just got in a car accident yesterday….thankfully they are ok but, now I have a $1000 deductible. So here is my attempt at something: https://funds.gofundme.com/dashboard/wqyxgg
    and the anti-racism project is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1417593264/there-is-only-one-racethe-human-race

  • Frank
  • Thanks Salvador for the great tips! It feels like there’s a lot of big guys out there on Kickstarter these days and that makes the process a bit intimidating. We made our video and campaign using a phone, ladders, check boxes, building blocks, and a lot of duct tape! We’re 40% funded in a day and trying to find ways to keep the momentum going so we all need resources like this so thanks again. By the way, our product EZSTAX is made by ogres – check out the video http://kck.st/1NiiUcI

    Just launched my Kickstarter yesterday – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1781448320/one-liners-movie-quotes-gone-horribly-wrong and am looking for as many ways to increase my chances of success.

    Stumbled upon your blog after searching ‘ways to promote my Kickstarter campaign’ on Google (impressively, your blog was #1 and #2, kudos to that!)

    I am currently in a massive outreach through Twitter, but have bookmarked this blog – and it’s relevant links to other articles you wrote – to come back to early next week.

    Would love your opinion (and outreach, if you enjoy the game)!

    Thanks Salvador!

    • Good looking campaign page Adam. You should consider adding a few more rewards and creating a short video to increase your chances of getting new backers.

    Thanks, Philippe


  • Brian May

    I really enjoyed reading this blog. It gave me quite a few Ideas. For instance, I turned to reddit but had no idea that there was a crowd funding sub-reddit. Unfortunately my campaign isn’t for a company but rather a very important issue that is happening in my life. I don’t know if this is something you would normally do as it’s not for a business, however, if you could at least take the time to read my story I would appreciate it to no end. My campaign can be found at http://www.gofundme.com/devistatedfather If you read my story you will understand why I need this campaign to be successful. This is the most important thing to me currently and I’m asking for help in anyway that I can. Any advice would be appreciated. If anything else, thank you for taking the time to read my story and thank you for writing this article.

  • Came across this post, wish I had done so earlier. I like to comment on old posts, especially if they have a lot of good information. Running our second Kickstarter here:
    The first was a great success, but there is always so much to learn!

  • Hi there, Salvador. Thanks for all the info, very helpful indeed. I’ve just launched a project on Kickstarter, my first time. Doing pretty good (60% funded after four days & got a staff pick) but I need to keep the heat up, hence finding you here. I’d be very grateful if you could have a look & let me know what you think. Am enjoying the social element very much as I spend too much time on my own doing the stuff! So would love to meet other creators & share ideas. Anyway, here’s the link: http://kck.st/1gS4QfE

  • This is an incredibly helpful post! It’s easy to get lost in the social media promotion and ignore everything outside of our inner circle. Thank you for sharing!

  • Yannick Maurice

    There are very good sources for promoting projects and thanks to you, I discovered some I wasn’t aware about. It is also a good way to discover new cool crowdfunding project. Reddit and google plus community were places I didn’t think about at first. Another good source that goes well with art/music/design type of project is 9GAG, the community is very responding if smart advertising is used (showing the quality of the project using 1 picture without begging for money, they will then search the project if interested)

    Anyway thanks for the advice and here is my current music project : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2145792847/fox-pleasure-equation-make-our-first-album-a-reali?ref=category_recommended

    Great article. I’ve seen tons of articles relating to growing your presence on social media, including another one of yours on growing your twitter base, which I plan to use. I was wondering what your guy’s thoughts are on the new landscape on FB, whereby you basically can get maybe 9 people who follow you to see a post unless you boost your posts. How do you use facebook now that you can’t really access your followers and still leverage any value toward your KickStarter Campaign? we started doing it, got up to 110 likes, and realized we were spinning our wheels a little bit. our campaign is here if you’d like to check it out – We haven’t gone live yet, as we are still trying to build awareness. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/893410392/156088718?token=61de25bc

  • Muló Short Film

    Hi CrowdCrux thanks for compiling all the useful crowdfunding communities list. We went with Indiegogo as we are crowdfunding for a film where the people are still very stigmatised in the UK media. Although we believe Kickstarter has more prestige in the industry we didn’t want the disappointment of being almost there and then just have all the pledges disappear.

    Well. this is something i’ve thought of for a while now and today i finally decided to pull the trigger. I’d appreciate a share or two.

    Hi! I am transitioning out of homelessness and have a chance to move
    into a house just across the street from my new job. As of now I have no
    way to get to work so living across the street would be perfect! The
    landlord is willing to let me move in with just the $600 deposit. A
    local organization has committed to help with $400 so that leaves $200
    that I need to move in. I also need help to purchase a bed or futon for
    approximately $100. Anything is appreciated and donations can be
    anonymous. Thanks for your consideration! I’m excited for the
    opportunity to get back on my feet and with your generosity I can.
    Anything is appreciated and donations can be anonymous.

    * I will be making enough to cover the rent and utilities.

    will tell us the answer to this. There are several factors that may
    influence the effectiveness of a cure, including how long the person has
    been infected; the route of infection; the person’s age when he or she
    acquired RARE DISEASE, as well as current age; how soon they started
    antiviral therapy; and whether they have opportunistic infections or
    other RARE DISEASE-related health problems. Depending on the nature of
    the cure, the RARE DISEASE strain may also influence the type of cure
    needed. We might start by curing some of the people some of the time. It
    might be that there won’t be a single cure for all, I am happy to thank
    the Dr OKEYTO for helping me get cured of my RARE DISEASE, for like 4
    yrs Now I have been suffering from RARE DISEASE , but one day as I was
    surfing through the Internet I met a post about a lady who was cured by
    Dr OKEYTO so I decided to give it a trial, to see if he could save my
    life Luckily for me I was cured by him. I cannot stop thanking him for
    what he has done for me if you are into similar problem you can contact
    him via: email dr.okeytoherbalcure@gmail.com or call him on his phone
    number (+2349050141440/whatsapp him)

    Hi guys,

I am a 23 year old, aspiring entrepreneur, fascinated by the crowdfunding space! Funding for people like us!!! I’ve been looking at the market for a while, thinking about what I can bring to it and I’ve come up with a few green shoots for ideas.

    I whipped up a super short (12 q’s) survey on Typeform, should only take 2 minutes, to see what others think of the space and it’s problems. I’d be incredibly gratefully for anyone to share their thoughts. Very happy to post the results once I get enough respondents.


    Thanks for all your help!

    Hi Salvador. I chanced upon your blog after searching of ways to promote an ex co-worker’s crowdfunding campaign. I am from Singapore and his campaign is on Youcaring. It has been running for almost 2 weeks plus and so far, there is been only 3 donors. 17 days left to go and I doubt it will get any better. Here is the link to the campaign – https://www.youcaring.com/homeforkids

    I sincerely hope you could tell us what is wrong with it. Thank you so much.

    My name is Nathan Karimi. I just started my kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/138633806/4-am-the-movie for our movie 4 AM. It’s a tribute to Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio broadcast and details the impact of the broadcast on a small southern Missouri town.

    I’ll be honest, I’ve read dozens of articles, some of it common sense and some of it truly enlightening all of which I’ve tried to follow to some degree. I feel as if I’ve done everything in my power to make this happen but I am really struggling on this kickstarter and could definitely use some advice.

    Thanks in advance for any help anyone is able to provide, I look forward to hearing it.

    I saw a show in Los Angeles 2 years ago that was so incredible, and now I am happy to help spread the word about this great local theatre company. They need to raise money to produce more shows. They do incredible work and I hope they meet their goal. Why? Because I love to see great theatre and there is not enough of it around. I hope you guys help them meet their goal by sharing this link and donating anything you can, even $1 helps them get there. They not only produce theatre, they also help create cultural exchange programs, and provide education and training for talented creatives of all ages. Please help them continue creating important programs that can offer vital opportunities to so many artists. Thanks! https://igg.me/at/YXtHJMeRgEM

  • Mike Dillon

    Hi there, I also googled how to get funding assistance as I am lost and need some guidance. I am almost middle aged, decided to finally write some ideas down I always had, and turned it into a fun kids book. I have had it edited and have a publisher ready to get it illustrated and published and even wants it to be a continuing series, but I need about 12k to get it going. Needless to say, I have zero dollars for any funding of this.

    I have always simply been just your office IT guy for almost 20 years, so projects like this are totally new to me. I am feeling over whelmed at this point and totally lost and frustrated to be honest. Here is my kickstarter project if you want to take a look. My email is alexandmarcus123@hotmail.com if you could offer any assistance at all I would deeply appreciate it.


    Thank you very much for even reading this.

    We just kicked ours off about 12 days ago, and we hit a wall. Hopefully after checking into some of these links, we can dust ourselves off and get back out there. If you get bored, please check out our project Pitfall Paradise at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pitfallparadise/pitfall-paradise and let us know what you immediately see wrong with it. The video is being updated as we speak, so we know that’s a huge swing and a miss.

    Global well being program, an social responsibility program designed, developed and being promoted by scientists, researchers, organizations, companies and volunteers. The core aspiration of this program is GLOBAL PEACE AND PROSPERITY THROUGH MEDITATION.

Under his patron and support of funds we have successfully researched and developed more than 400 innovative products, out of which more than 35 products have global monopoly importance and positioning. Such products are further promoted in the special list of GLOBAL WELL BEING PROGRAMS.


    Wellbeing is creating , providing, doing such an act by which others get happiness, healthiness, peace of mind, all these slowly leads to in totality well being of mankind.

    Naturally be comfortable we are greatly open and wish for others well being…those who wish to mint money they can mint money far more than they desire. However please keep in mind that this is not fully commercial project, it’s a socio- commercial venture aspiring for global well being.

    The funds are required for :

    1. Establishment of GLOBAL WELL BEING CENTER.

    2. The land requirement is estimated to be around 5000 Acres.

    3. The buildings are planned for GLOBAL PEACE AND PROSPERITY THROUGH MEDITATION program- research, training, practice, study center, etc; along with international standard hostel facilities.

    4. The HQ for global well being program, office, accommodation for the office bearers, food facilities for the office bearers.

    infogppm@gmail.com, globalwellbeing97@gmail.com, sadgurubio@yahoo.com,

    Why the GLOBAL WELL BEING PROGRAM requires great funds for its expansion, if it has its own global monopoly research as its asset?

    Great ventures were started on small scale, natural great rivers have starting with some drops not with the oceanic flow. The best example is the great Ganges , the river Ganges has started at its origin with a small drops at gomukh and slowly in due course of time the small currents have joined to travel further as river Ganges. At the Bay of Bengal it’s like a ocean, or sometimes one could not understands clearly which is Ganges and which is ocean. This is what nature teaches us.

    We have started the venture GLOBAL WELL BEING PROGRAM just with one man army research activities long back more than 23-24 years ago, somewhat in 192-93. The aspiration and aim was constant and other most of the situations approaches have changed. THE GLOBAL PEACE AND PROSPERITY THROUGH MEDITATION the core program is first made concrete and firm. For this program other innovative health care activities and inventions are supplementary activities. The initial venturing money or funds were flowing through activities related to herbal research and services. In due course of time lot many friends and well wishers have supported financially. The result is we are equipped with global monopoly programs, products and means to reach the global population with meditation and other services, and programs.

    What is the quantum of funds are required?

    If we have started with single research product, and today if we are having more than 400 innovative products to our credit; and more exiting is the core of the program the meditation application for global well being is researched , developed and made easy as simple as anyone can take it to global horizons. Then why should we be fixed on certain amount of funds for certain functions or facilities. Whatever funds could be available for bare minimum formalities completion we will manage with that and the program will get flourished by virtue of its content.

    What are basic requirements?

    Small or big GLOBAL WELL BEING CENTER , comprising of central office, departmental offices, research center for meditation, health care, traditional health care research and application center, herbal remedies research and manufacturing facilities center, accommodation for foundrs, researchers, and visitors and volunteers. This could be accommodated in any amount as which suits for any global project.

    For this global cause we are appealing to all to get involved and help us to implement GLOBAL WELL BEING PROGRAMS. The venture capital funds, crowd funding companies, individual investors, or groups are requested to associate with us.

    After we got engaged, my now (!) wife Caitlin and I wanted to raise some money from family and friends for our honeymoon. We wanted to take a more ‘visual approach’ in crowdfunding – and let our family uncover a collage of memories from the five years we spent together before we decided to tie the knot. With my limited coding skills, I built a website (Coverrme.com) from scratch where people could literally leave their visual footprint on our campaign page and we raised over $3,500.

    I would like to share our platform to others to use also. Maybe in this way you and your readers might be interested in our website. Feel free to check it out.

My campaign is through Gofundme and a peer to peer loan organization called Wefinance. though in which I am trying to raise money to attend a coding bootcamp so that I could in turn use what I learn and start a non-profit that promotes healing and increased career marketability for youths.

    Is like a dream comes through, I never believed in Spells or Black Magics works until I met this special spell caster called DR KEN.. The man i wanted to marry left me 3 months to our wedding ceremony and my life was upside down.he was with me for 4 years and i really love him so much..he left me for another woman with no reasons..when i called him, he never picked up my calls and he don’t want to see me around him…so,when i told the man what happened. he helped me to do some readings,and after the readings he made me to realize that the other woman has done some spells over my Husband and that is the reason why he left me..he told me he will help me to cast a spell to bring him back. At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a try…In 4 days, My Husband called me himself and came to me apologizing..I cant believe he can ever come back to me again but now i am happy he’s back and we are married now and we live as a happy family..Am posting this to the forum if anyone needs the help of this man called DR KEN the man is for real. you can contact him through this email address : drkensolutiontemple@gmail.com or call mobile number +2349052116690

    Thank you for all the places that might be able to help. Oddly enough, I’m not a Kickstarter creator myself, I’m one of those people that continually funds the projects I believe in because of the creators, not always because of the reward. Right now, there’s a guy that makes coloring books who I really would like to see and am even willing to help succeed. I’ve been on his mailing list forever, and his emails are always an outpouring of enthusiasm and love for his readers/subscribers; being very ill, those kinds of emails can really help me get through the terrible “you’ve already outlived your diagnosis timeline; you should be expecting the worst any day now” from my doctors. I genuinely like his coloring pages, as they’re funnier than most, and almost all are 100% hand-drawn… I just think he doesn’t have the business acumen that’s needed to make this successful, and the project is fast running out of time. If you have any specific suggestions for someone like myself, who doesn’t even personally know the creator (except by his attitude in his non-personal emails and art), I’d really appreciate hearing them. Thanks!

  • Ehsaan

    Thank you so much for your suggestions! There’s so much to learn as a first-time Kickstarter campaigner. We just launched our kickstarter today: bit.ly/gonindyaa and are hoping to bring art and beautiful patterns from around the world to household items

  • Leslie Brown

    Please if possible help spread this campaign for this family. They been through a lot and their story is heartbreaking just please pass this link to anyone you know and help them. Anything is better than nothing.
    Anthony Brooks was said to have died from natural causes but actually was murdered in prison. He was in prison for driving tickets that builded up over a long course of time. This goes to show that the law enforcement once again failed to protect even though they are required to protect those in prison.

  • Very comprehensive list of places to promote crowdfunding campaigns.

    There is also many Facebook groups where people discuss and share interesting crowdfunding campaigns. You could also add these into this list.

    I think Social media plays gets more visibility as like Press Release.

  • Jeffery Williams

    We had been married for a while and things were OK, I was in love with her, she was crazy about me, but later on everything changed and by complicated exterior circumstances which did not have to do with us, we decided to pause for a while, but still remain friends. But in the end, she started getting cold: she treated me as if she did not know me, she acted too immature to the point where she did not even say hi to me when we bumped into each other (we had the same circle of friends). Of course, it hurt so badly, I wanted to kill her. Then out of nowhere she disappeared. I wrote her for her birthday and she replied little. Some of my “friends” saw she had left and started going cold with me too, as if it was my fault that she had left. The few that were still my close friends and still hers, told me she had moved on, that it was best not to make contact with her. Then out of the blue some months later she reappeared, but still acting like a douche. I was suffering emotionally of course, because we had never even had a divorce, it was just supposed to be a pause, so I did not know how to react, what to feel, what to do… anyway, she kept coming over and over on the weekends, and I had to deal with my “friends” who the moment they saw her, immediately left me and went over to her. Eventually, I decided to give up trying to restore anything with her as she was showing no signs of wanting me back, and started healing. Around four months after we had ended our relationship, I find out she is with another guy! That’s when I knew I had not gotten over her, because I cried, I was mad, it was just a feeling of “oh, poor me”. I could not stand losing her to some other guy, I decided to go diabolical (i.e. via spell). I got involved with a lot of fraudulent so-called spell casters on the internet who ripped me off my money without getting a result as to what I wanted. I almost lost my sanity. Just as I almost was giving up, one faithful morning, I received a mail from one of the spell castes I had applied for spell with but never got a reply all along. He made me to understand that he could not attend to all his costumers then because it was that time of the year for his annual fellowship with his ancestors for the renewal of his spiritual and supernatural gift. I told him not to worry about the spell anymore, that I was done with all of them fake spell casters. He assured me of his 100% genuine work of this gift which he possessed. I decided to give it a try. After spending about 2500 USD (which was due to my inability to provide a whole lot of materials which he needed for the spell process), I am happy to announce to the world that I have gotten back my wife and we are expecting our first baby. All thanks to Dr. Kene Dilli. All you out there tired of all these fraudsters that call themselves spell casters (seeking to rip were they have not sown) and you require legitimate spell for whatsoever purpose, contact Dr. Kene Dilli on his email address; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com.RE-WRITE THE EMAIL ADDRESS IN IT’S STANDARD FORM.YY

  • spacedigitalx Review

    Warning: spacedigitalx.com is a new scam on kickstarter…

    I hired them and got nothing but low quality in return. Terrible press release, blast press release I can buy myself for $15, and the list continues. No further service or follow up. And refusal to pay my money back. Already reported them to the BBB.org.

    They only started in AUGUST 2016! All their reviews are fake, they created their own reviews and even a product website. ALL publications are from real campaigns, but they never worked with any of them. Impossible if you think about it: AUGUST 2016 is when they started. Google it.

    spacedigitalx = guaranteed scam! Avoid if you care for your crowdfunding campaign!

    I’ve just launched my Kickstarter project – the SafeTea Towel. Unlike traditional kitchen towels, if a flame comes in contact with a SafeTea Towel, the fabric will not provide fuel for the fire to sustain itself and spread. The fire resistant fabric results in charring, not burning and the fabric will self extinguish once the flame has been removed.
    Hoping you guys can check it out and let me know your feedback.

    If you’re looking for somewhere to promote your project, I highly recommend applying to a SuperBacker group – they don’t accept many projects but if yours is selected, they directly email kickstarter super backers your project. Crowdrush.co and Backersclub.co are two examples to check out.

  • very interesting list of to promote, thanks for sharing.

  • Nicholas Chen

    Interesting article – Most of my backers have actually come from Kickstarter’s internal discover system, which probably means I’m not promoting well enough. This information’s really helpful, hopefully I’ll be able to promote more effectively outside of Kickstarter.

    I recently launched a Kickstarter for my videogame, Machine Gods. It’s a sidescrolling roguelite and all the art in the game is hand drawn.

    All contributions are appreciated! I would love feedback as well.

  • Katarina Connery

    Looks like this was posted quite a while ago, but still found some great tips. I’m wondering, though, about posting your campaign on all these free forums and things, how productive is it really? It takes time to create something unique for each one, though you can easily cut and paste, though as you mentioned people are more likely respond if it doesn’t look like you posted the exact same thing in a million places. But if everyone is posting their campaigns, doesn’t it end up looking like spam, where everyone is posting but few are visiting and donating? I know this is an old post, maybe I’ll get a response, maybe not. But thanks anyway!

I can also easily get some God anointed speakers to my festival and some Christian comedians and some Christian entertainers such as jugglers and magicians. I thought God told me to do this. I already have a Christian radio sponsor in Northern Arizona lined up that said they were 100% on board. I’m blown away. I hate waiting until the end of September when they said they will be done with their fall drive and can move with becoming a sponsor. I’m ready to book some people today that have expressed interest. I’m just lacking the funding. I have the City of Williams, Arizona approval. Williams is outside the Grand Canyon. They call it the Gateway to the Grand Canyon. The stage where this will be will be the outdoor Williams Visitors Center by the Grand Canyon Railway. By sowing into my project you are sowing into God’s kingdom. I’m ready to start booking today! I don’t want to wait where they book elsewhere. We want people traveling through town which in June the town triples in population and with radio sponsor many will come out. We want tourists from Phoenix and Tucson along with world travelers hopping the Grand Canyon Railway Train and driving to the Grand Canyon to stop and be blessed by anointed preaching, maybe come to salvation and knowledge of Him and turn back to Him or get a closer walk with Him. We are strategically only hiring Christians to perform. I hope there are enough Christians out there to make my vision a reality! I really don’t know how to phrase everything God is doing and doors opening for this project in a forum. But, God is moving. Please bless my vision! God bless you!

    Winter is coming! – Rehabilitating an Animal Shelter
    Hi guys,
    I would appreciate some feedback on the campaign we have lauched for our furry friends.


    Just launched my Kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460729046/govo-the-most-functional-and-durable-badge-holder?ref=nav_search
    Looking forward to networking with other authors

  • I am not sure how to ask, but thought to do it anyways after reading the “Kickstarter Launch Formula: The Crowdfunding Handbook for Startups, Filmmakers, and Independent Creators”. So, I’ve applied some of the tactics discussed in the book. Lets see how it works out. Here is a bit more information about my Kickstarter project: Check this out. Our project is live now. CloviFi, The World’s Smartest Wi-Fi TV audio transmitter is on Kickstarter. Support us now.

    GREAT list, Salvador. And much appreciated information for the a 1st time collaborator like me. It’s especially important to expect to work and beware the shortcuts. My dear friend launched her 1st ever Campaign just hours ago. She, another collaborator and I are the small but passionate team assembled. Proud to be doing it, team size be damned, because we love this woman and it’s a joy to be a part of her pursuit of passion. She’s an independent musician and singer, based in London, making a living purely as one helluva live performer, and now seeking the means for a debut original album. Kyrah is Making Her First Album! Any and all sharing and assistance would be sincerely appreciated! As budding crowdsourcers, we are all members of a pretty exclusive and soulful community. We gotta treat it as just that: a community. Help one another. Journeys are best when shared. ❤️

  • We are a team that loves to see people have fun ,unfortunately this doesn’t happen everywhere.

    This is our first edition of Anonymous Sun & Moon Festival,we made this festival because of our love for music,our love for great fun throughout the youth,our love to music festivals,and our love for the people and artists. This festival is meant to be a festival in which we promote young,new and also older artists that are in the music domain ,we want to bring magnificent artists up on the ladder that they are struggling to climb. We want to bring this kind of festival to the unfortunate towns that don’t have night life and where are not to many pubs with good music on the playlist. But we won’t stop here we want to bring this kind of festivals to the big cites as well where we can promote and support all the artists out there,we are doing what we love and we love what we are doing ! We also need your help to bring these kind of festivals to the people that are in a zone not enriched by arts and music so consider supporting us on Patreon as well !
    We made our first festival with our own money for people who can not afford to go to a festival ,now we need your help to bring joy,happiness and freedom to more people !

    Love all the tips and constant support!

    My brother and I started a Kickstarter campaign a few days ago. Its called Slights: Stair Lights. We are the creators of the original motion controlled stair lights. After our father fell down the stairs at night and permanently hurt his back, we realized just how important and necessary such a product is.
