When you look at the top tabletop creators on Kickstarter, and see them hitting — and even surpassing — their funding goals quickly, it’s inspiring. Like them, you can bring your great game idea to life through crowdfunding. But in order to succeed, it’s important to pay close attention to what those experienced creators are doing. From building a happy community of supporters to manufacturing your game to handling fulfillment, there are a lot of steps that you will have to take to run a successful campaign — some steps that you may not even be aware of.
Over the past year, we’ve been hosting webinars to introduce creators to crowdfunding pros and deliver expert Kickstarter campaign tips. We’re excited to announce our next livestream will be a part of Gen Con Online’s four-day virtual gaming convention. To help you prepare for your tabletop game launch, we’ve teamed up with Justin Sirois of Severed Books for a special webinar covering all the do’s and don’ts of crowdfunding. Justin has launched more than 20 successful Kickstarter campaigns, including Sickest Witch and Massive Gelatinous Cube. During the webinar, he will walk viewers through a presentation titled “Five Kickstarter Secrets from Keeping it Fun to Killing the Fulfillment Game.” Afterwards, you’ll have a chance to ask questions during a live Q&A.
In this webinar:
- Get updates on the state of crowdfunding in 2020 and beyond
- Find out how to build a strong community around your game
- Hear Kickstarter campaign tips on finding your niche and developing your brand
- Learn the importance of providing an excellent backer experience and getting fulfillment right
