Secrets Of Kickstarter: What You Need To Know To Have A Successful Campaign:

MakeIt NYC is proud to present Kickstarter’s own Stephanie Pereira and an all-star panel of Kickstarter luminaries! If you’re considering doing a Kickstarter campaign, or even if you’re just curious to learn some inside ball, don’t miss this! Five successful projects tell you how they did it, and answer your questions, too.

The panel will be focused about how the panelists took their ideas and designs for real, physical things from the drawing board to delivering them as rewards at the conclusion of a successful campaign, and Stephanie will be sprinkling in her accumulated wisdom about Kickstarter. Topics include:

  • Making a successful Kickstarter Video,
  • Supporting your campaign with PR,
  • Kickstarter metrics and statistics,
  • Taking your idea through the prototype and fabrication stages,
  • Low-volume and short-run manufacturing tips,
  • Intellectual property and other legal issues,
  • Surprises along the way,
  • What the new changes to Kickstarter mean to them, and to you.
