30 People to Promote Your Kickstarter or Indiegogo Campaign to on Twitter

Published by Salvador Briggman. Find him on Twitter.

Since I received a lot of positive feedback from my last article, 21 places to promote your kickstarter campaign, I decided to draw up a list of some of the awesome people involved in the crowdfunding industry and who are some of the biggest Kickstarter/Indiegogo supporters. Feel free to reach out to them when you are looking to promote your campaign.

Please keep in mind, that you should always put yourself in the shoes of the other person when you are promoting your campaign. The next time you are going to put your self-interest first, stop, think about the interests guiding the person you are attempting to persuade, and then work from their interests back to yours. I really recommend the bestselling book How To Win Friends and Influence People. You can probably find it somewhere online for free if you look hard enough.

I talked a lot about this in 5 Kickstarter Mistakes You Should Avoid.  Remember, no one likes spamming! Use twitter as a starting point to establish a relationship and then follow up with an email or call. 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.

    Thank you so much for all the great tips! This is the 4th article I’ve read on here tonight. You are awesome for all of the info which you share with us! I am currently in re-launch mode of an unsuccessfully funded campaign. I think the biggest problem was not enough exposure, so I will definitely be incorporating these tips with some of my old strategies.

    Hopefully the 2nd time around I could have a fully funded project, which would be awesome because I’ll be graduating next month. My project goes live at the end of the week! #EXCITED

    Great blog. The tips were really helpful. I needed this. My campaign has been up on Indiegogo for a couple weeks now. And I’m not getting any views or funding. And I’m really starting to panic. Here’s a link if you would like to check it out. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-me-go-back-to-college-to-become-a-teacher/x/1632106
    But thanks for this post. I’m definitely going to add these people.

    • CrowdCrux

      :D! Thanks! I have less experience with rallying action for the kind of donation-based campaigns that usually appear on GoFundMe. It’s definitely a lot harder, so I give you Kudos for going for it.

      As a recommendation, I would recommend crafting more compelling rewards. $25 for a thank you letter – people would likely go for this only if they knew you or/and liked you or really resonated with your story. Even then, I personally think you should offer more value for $25. Even with bake sales you will get a cupcake or food for a $5-10 donation.

    So far the best site for tips! Thank you for not just writting about get press release, etc as its not that easy. All tips are great, I wish I have founded you before launching my project :) Now we are in a run, but trying to follow the steps and tips you are providing here!

  • RoomShare Webseries

    I just want to thank you for this blog. I am currently going through the wilderness that is crowdfunding. I have also read “How to win friends” awhile back and your writing style shows you have read it, probably many times. I read your “21 places..” & “30 people..” recently, and I wish I would have came across this blog pre-launch. We are 2 days in, and now I am revamping my campaign a bit. Thanks again!

    • CrowdCrux

      Definitely :). Yes, it’s one of my favorite books. Definitely a timeless classic. Let me know if your re-vamp has a positive effect on your campaign and keep me updated as you progress towards your goal.

      • RoomShare Webseries

        Will do. right now I am 1 week in with 16 of our goal but the the past 3 days with no change. Given your profound knowledge on the subject, I would love for you to take a look and offer any insight in ways to improve my strategy. provided you have time as I know you are busy. would you mind if I sent you a link?

  • Wylde Blade

    Wow! I’m so glad I ran across this blog during my research! I’m launching my first KickStarter on Indiegogo this month and the information I’m finding here is absolutely amazing!

    There’s a lot of stuff that I never even thought about for my campaign, so I think I’ll be reading this blog all day to see what else I can do in order to make my first campaign a success (for starters, I just added all of these contacts to my Twitter account)! Now on to the next step!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post this. Vital information for us newbies!

    Btw, the KickStarter I’m working on is for a comic series based on sci-fi fantasy novel I have selling on Amazon.com and the iTunes Store.

    I’m still working on the campaign (and adding all of these wonderful tips to it!) , but anyone interested to know more about me and why I’ve decided on this KickStarter can check out my YouTube video entitled: “Just Create! Discovering Yourself Before You Die”

    Just Create! Video – http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P2dA4zeGwj0

    • CrowdCrux

      Awesome! I look forward to the re-launch. If you’re interested in some free promotion, I’m willing to do some twitter promotion for new users on our new website (http://www.pitchfuse.com). You can use it to gather followers pre-launch, get feedback, create giveaways, and we’re working to drive traffic to these campaigns :).

    The Healing Comic crew recently helped facilitate a crowd funding startup for Shannon Paul Stokely who is wanting to go for the new breakthrough stem-cell treatments in China for his child-hood onset encephalitis that affected his speech and motor controls. Check out http://igg.me/at/sendshannontochina (Indiegogo) and see the interview we put together for him to get his message out about the programs being offered.

    Hello Everyone, am working on a 45 minutes short film on the topic of Skin lightening/Bleaching. Am interested in getting your backing for this project on indiegogo. The project is titled “Bleached Beauty – Truth about Skin Lightening” on indiegogo http://igg.me/p/815414/twtr/7857928 . This practise is very common in Africa but the public has been misinformed by the media and we aims educate the public on the pros and cons of this practice.

    Launching a campaign on Kickstarter is so intimidating. Even though I have a solid social network on Facebook and Twitter, it’s very hard to strategize how to approach people for money – especially friends and family. Sal, your advice and observations have already been so helpful to me, and we just started our campaign yesterday! I’m sure I’ll be relying on your articles throughout this process. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/349905885/teacher-of-the-year

    Thanks for the info man. I just started a small project, but I really have no idea how it will turn out. It’s targeted at gamers so I’m trying to stick to gaming websites in order to promote it. I somehow feel like I’m turning into a spambot rather than anything else. Anyway, if you are a gamer and are tired of all the money-siphoning games out there, consider checking out my project: http://igg.me/at/worstgame/x/8933832

    Really cool articles. I was looking for this info all over the web and couldn’t find it. I had one campaign on kickstarter before but it failed so i decided to learn some more about promotion and marketing . Firstly I found your post about Getting Media coverage for your campaign , I found it really useful and then I literally read all your articles haha. You give real advise that works and not useless stuff like step1: figure out with your product. step2 :raise a lot of money. step3: live happy . what most blogs do…. Launching my new project in a month or two …we’ll see how different it’ll be from my first project …

  • siteChisel

    This is super helpful for sure! My business partner and I just launched our campaign, not to gather funding, but rather to build a customer base. We have previously received a capital injection from a family member to get this thing off the ground so rather than go for funding directly, we figured we would switch the game up a bit and offer the service itself to funders on Indiegogo.

    Right now we’re not live, but we’re hoping to be ready by the time the campaign is over so people aren’t waiting forever.

    I keep seeing CrowdCrux everywhere I search so it makes sense to start posting to each place I find it since you have such a strong backing!

    Our Indiegogo campaign can be found here: http://igg.me/at/siteChisel

    We’re targeting small businesses that don’t have an online presence to help them extend their reach!

    Thank you!
