Trying to kick tooth pain and tips on Kickstarter
Hey there Information travelers!
The past 7 days have been pretty rough. On July 2nd I had my wisdom teeth removed. Just prior to having them removed I had high hopes and plans of hitting the keyboard pretty hard. I wanted to begin writing my first novel. Sadly there were some unforeseen circumstances. I didn’t expect cracking a tooth in the process of getting my wisdom teeth removed. The pain is probably the worst I can imagine. I’m not a stranger to pain, but this is most unbearable. Tooth pain is a whole different category of pain. The pain of a distressed tooth is something that constantly reminds you just how close to your brain it is. The past week I have been slow to do anything meaningful. It’s just too hard to concentrate on anything even remotely important. I have an appointment with the dentist on the 16th. Hopefully I kick this tooth pain and get it under control, If not its coming out!
It really sucks to start out on my blog with a post as such, but hey I have to do something!
I’ve been doing a lot of surfing with no particular aim lately. I’ve spent the majority of my time browsing kickstarter.com. I want to say I have a pretty good Idea of what makes a good kickstarter project. But it would be far more accurate to say I know what it takes to fund a project successfully. It really just boils down to three fundamentals.
3.) Donation Levels.
Duration is such a major part of achieving a funding goal on kickstarter. It seems that duration ties in with perceived confidence of donors. If you have a long duration during your fundraiser, donors might think you are not really confident with your project. Another thing is people are inpatient in general. No one wants to pay for something up front, only to wait 6 months before seeing the benefits.
Communication is probably the most important aspect of any successful kickstarter campaign. There more you communicate with donors and potential donors alike, the better your chances of reaching your fundraising goals. Successful campaigners utilize all forms of social media to communicate updates and progress of a project. Answering questions and concerns promptly can really give a nudge to potential donors who are “on the fence”. Of all the successful campaigns I have reviewed, the ones that achieved over funding were the ones that had a FAQ based on most frequently asked donor questions.
Donation Levels, the more the merrier. People love the Idea of having a lot of choices. The more choices they have, the more of a chance they will choose to donate to your project. Just keep in mind that the more choices you give, the harder and more tedious it will be to fulfill the donation offers after you have successfully funded your project.
Well that’s my random 2 cents on kickstarter funding. I hope you stop by again real soon.
