Since Kickstarter has been launched, millions of contributors all over the world have introduced more than 340,000 projects hoping to raise funds and create mind-blowing products. The sad truth is that the majority of them eventually don’t gain enough funding to continue production, whereas the most successful ones reach six, seven, and even eight figures of capital.
What is the secret of moving beyond the fundraising? Frankly, there are a lot of factors that are vital to the success of your launch on Kickstarter – starting from the product itself and the way you communicate the value to your backers. Putting aside all the PR and marketing schemes, let’s focus on the trendy ideas that can potentially bring you success.

There is a lot to explore in this field.
