    Having successfully launched The War of 1812 board game on Kickstarter what's one important piece of advice you can give people who want to crowdfund their product ideas?
    Eric Sheppard

    One piece of advice I would give to anyone launching a kickstarter campaign is to treat kickstarter like a social network. Follow people who back a lot of projects in your niche and comment on other people's projects. Acquiring kickstarter followers is really valuable because these followers are all familliar with the platform and are much more likely to back projects than your followers on other social media platforms.
