Disclosure: I purchased Jamey’s book on Amazon. I went the cheap route of ordering a used copy which will arrive in a week to ten days. I would have purchased the e-book, but they wanted almost as much for the e-book as the regular price for the book.
As I mention in a post – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/03/04/day-1-or-is-it-day-500-b-1games or you can click on the B-1 Games link below, I wasn’t aware of these lessons until B-1Games mentioned them in the post I am re-blogging which can be found here: https://b-1games.com/2019/02/23/day-1-or-is-it-day-500/. I decided the Kickstarter lessons warranted a separate post.
Many of the lessons will apply to other crowdfunding sites: Indiegogo, GoFundMe, etc. They also include tips and information for https://stonemaiergames.com/kickstarter/lessons/business-brilliance/:
Innovative strategies from non-Kickstarter, non-tabletop game companies as they might apply to other businesses.
In only eight (8) Kickstarter campaigns, the company has raised over $3.2 million.
