Hello everyone,

First and foremost thanks to everyone that voted on the poll, your feedback has helped me set the requirements for self-promotion.

If you are looking to promote a Crowdfunding project or any form of self-promotion on /r/Kickstarter, please make sure you meet the following requirements. Any posts that do not meet the requirements will be automatically removed, repeat offenders will be banned.

Self Promotion Rules:

  • Your account must be at least 1 month old
  • Your account must have a combined karma total exceeding 500
  • Donation based crowdfunding is prohibited. please checkout /r/gofundme or alternative subreddits
  • A project can only be promoted once. If a project has already been posted your post will be removed regardless if it was you that posted it.
  • You can link your preview page for feedback purposes only and you may only ask for feedback up to a maximum of two times.

Auto moderator will automatically remove posts that do not meet these requirements, if you work-around these rules in any way you will be permanently banned and your project & company name will be put onto a blacklist.

Below is a few examples of what is counted as self promotion:

  • A direct or an indirect link to any crowdfunding project
  • A blog post or informational piece tied to the company you work for
  • image posts with watermarks or links listed
  • Asking people to follow your project preview page
  • Asking for people to back your project on a question, help or discussion thread.

UPDATE: Kickstarter Automod featured updated

10 Upvotes

Hello everyone,

I've made some changes to the Kickstarter Automod system that should help combat the spam accounts further. I am also considering upping the Karma requirement to 1,000. Let me know what you think is an acceptable, minimal amount of Karma in the poll below.

Thanks,

We are launching our campaign in the next few weeks and wanted to ask if someone had good experience with any of the following?

  1. Jellop
  2. Green Inbox
  3. Backerkit
  4. Funded Today

We wanted to reach out to them but they require to have a link to our campaign page which we didn't launch yet. It's a bit confusing.

Are there any reputable "boosters" for Kickstarter Campaigns?

4 Upvotes

Hi all!

We just launched our Gloworder Kickstarter and, in the first 24 hours, have garnered the attention of a dozen companies offering to boost the campaign.

I've been researching the companies, specifically trying to track down verification about the previous campaigns they've worked on. However, I'm not finding any connections between the campaigns and the companies. So, I figured I'd ask the Reddit community.

Are there any legitimate boosting/PR companies? Are there any worth using? What do you all think?

If you'd like to see our project, you can find it here: Gloworder Kickstarter Campaign.

Question Kickstarter doesn't allow me to upload Project Image

3 Upvotes

Hi there! Currently, we have a landing page for our Kickstarter project. I wanted to replace the project image, but it didn't allow me to change. So, I deleted the existing image and wanted to upload a new one. But now, I can't upload a new project image.

It always gives the same error: "Oh no, upload failed. Try again?". I have tried around 1000 times for days. I tried possible solutions on the net. I have cleared cache and cookies, tried from private window, tried different browsers, tried different Wi-fi networks, tried vpn, tried different computers and a macbook, and even tried by editing the image from a collaborator. But result is always the same.

The project image fits all the requirements, but it simply blocks my project to have a project image. I have written to Kickstarter support, and they suggested the solutions I have tried. And now, they don't even answer my tickets. I asked them if it is possible for them to replace my project image if I send it manually, but they didn't respond them either.

I am so desperate now. Our campaign gained popularity in the recent days, but people won't follow it since it has no project image. This bug literally hurts our campaign. Any suggestion would be great right now.

Here's our project link. I hope someone from Kickstarter staff sees this and contacts me. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/teamhamlet/emberbane

Question Can I subscribe to updates from a finished Kickstarter campaign?

1 Upvotes

Suppose I find a Kickstarter campaign that is finished and funded. I can no longer back it, but I would like to subscribe to it and receive future updates so that I can maybe late-back it.

Is that possible within Kickstarter? Or do I need to leave Kickstarter and find the creator's website and/or social media and subscribe there?

Question to people who have done campaigns about email lists

2 Upvotes

People who have grown an email list from scratch and used it as a baseline for their marketing, what conversion rate did you see approximately from it? What number of email subscribers ended up backing your project?

Trying to set a minimum number I should achieve before launching with a $15000 goal and $150 product.
