I don't want to link-bait, but I did write a blog post about the best crowdfunding practices.
I think there is a few good steps.
- Find your best competitor. (how did they succeed)
- Where does your market exist online. (reddit, facebook, instagram, specific blogs, etc)
- Create a trailer & landing page and try getting press aimed at your specific audience.
- Launch the Kickstarter with hype & have a marketing plan + press ready. With those you could easily hit $20k.
Here's the blog link if it will be helpful.
Most definitely. I actually highly recommend it so that you can collect emails before launching. This can be done through creating a beautiful landing page with content. Depending on your press approach, you could email writers or hire a PR firm.
I've hired a bunch of experts on Elance and oDesk. Just create a submission and guess what you think the qualifications are. Once you have responses you can see reviews from people before hiring them. You could also send messages before hiring them.
In no particular order, these are all super good.
