Is there a reason not to try it?

Go for it!

  1. Not doing pre-campaign marketing: Honestly, I never thought about this. I focused too much on writing the story, defining rewards, and making the video, so I kept the project to myself. I never spoke about it with my friends before going live. And social media never crossed my mind. Please don’t make this mistake, do a little pre-campaign marketing at least for a week before launch.
  2. Not having an appealing image for my project: It may sound dumb. Maybe I’m dumb. But the fact is that I didn’t think about it, I only uploaded an image with the title of the book. I’m in process of fixing that but there’s no way to get back these days without a proper image for my campaign.
  3. Advertising to the wrong audience: After realizing that I need to work hard to advertise my campaign, I went desperate, I started sharing my campaign on all Facebook groups about Kickstarter projects. The problem with doing these is that it’s like throwing a rock into the ocean. My posts were sinking amongst other posts in a matter of minutes. It wasn’t my best idea to stand out.
