The Kickstarter website is producing one success story after another in terms of creatives getting the projects of their dreams funded. One such artist, Skye Lucking, just launched her first Kickstarter Campaign titled: "A Seuss-Escher Lovechilde goes the Whole 9 Yards." She's the guest author for this week's article "Do's and Don't's of a Kickstarter Campaign" in which she gives tips about how best to launch a Kickstarter Campaign including tips such as:
Do make sure your other web locations (your website or storefront) are up and ready for people to view it. Part of Kickstarter's appeal is that it will bring new eyes to your work whether your project gets funded or not.
Don't put a project funding goal way higher than you need. According to some Kickstarter pro's it is better to have a goal lower than you actually need so it has a better chance to get fully funded. People love to back a winner, so often times you'll get more than the amount you asked for.
