So ... slow work day? Every day?
This is the link and info I was looking for. VERY helpful. Thank you. Ill have to re-think my strategy. This all makes sense now, because I never or rarely see ads on social media for these huge kickstarters that turn out (although that's not saying much since I don't visit social media all that often). I'd rather update people who want to know rather than spewing over social media everywhere.So you say this, but do you know what Ben Milton, Kevin Crawford and Kelsey Dione all have in common? Email Newsletters that they think are the most effective form of social media for staying in touch with customers: www.youtube.com/watch?v=psC6J_9Sekc (starts at 2 minutes, but the actual interview was interesting also imo). Apparently the people who continue to have success have built it partially via these newsletters.
It's a list of blind contacts. I don't get anyone's email off it. But what really sucks, is I can't send out an email with a link to say my pre-launch page to my Kickstarter or to my website. Any links have to go to products on Drivethrurpg only. They do allow 2 emails for Kickstarters--usually once when you launch, and one more when you are about to end. So ya..when I make an announcement about a new product or something (so like 3-4x a year), it goes out to about 7k people....but the email only goes out to about 3k people because most block the 'spam' and then who knows who actually reads it. So it's somewhat helpful.Sorry, maybe I'm misunderstanding this? Does DTRPG not give you a list of past customers? Or at least a means to blind-contact past customers? For sure I haven't signed up for further notifications from some of the creators I've purchased from. I still get their spam nonetheless...
Thanks for everyone's thoughtful input, etc. I'm getting excited to be able to have more confidence and less stress in commissioning art and at least breaking even with some of these projects through Kickstarter.
