Note 1/25/15: This Kickstarter campaign took place in May 2013. Keep this in mind as things change so rapidly in the cyber-world and I have no idea what changes have occurred with Kickstarter since that time.
A number of people have come to me asking for advice about doing a Kickstarter campaign. I knew nothing about Kickstarter before I launched mine, but I learned a lot in the process. A couple days after the end of our campaign I sat down and typed out some thoughts about the experience so I wouldn’t forget what I learned. I’ve shared this with a few friends, but I’m making it available publicly now in case it might help others. I’m not trying to present myself as an “expert” or anything like that. This is simply just my advice when people ask me…
Here are some things I learned from running our successful Kickstarter campaign to bring legendary Jamaican engineer & “Dub Chemist”, The Scientist, to Chicago to record and mix the debut album from Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub.
