  • Developing Your Kickstarter Page. This time, it is all about YOU! What’s your story? Do you have street cred? Rewards Tiers unraveled. Important information about your video.
  • You’ve LaunchedNow what? Strategies to maintain momentum during the campaign. Timing is everything.
  • Fulfillment. Woot! You did it. Managing backer expectations, plus practical applications of packaging and mailing.
