- There is an opportunity for any company out there to run a crowdfunding campaign, whether it be reward-based with a physical product or potentially equity-based.
- The unfortunate side of running a Kickstarter campaign is basically you see the worst of anybody. It’s hard to point out what’s wrong with their product or why things are not working, but it’s a conversation that you have to have.
- There’s a lot of pre-launch work that needs to be done in order to have success in a business.
- It’s expensive to bring a product to market. It takes about 2 to 20 years of product development before a product gets manufactured, QA tested or UL approved. But many people have this misconception that it can just be made very quickly and cheaply in China.
- Be transparent with everything that goes on internally and externally for your company.
- Focus on the categories that you’re an expert in.
- Keep educating yourself and understand how crowdfunding works and how these types of campaigns are unique and challenging on their own.
