If you told me months ago that our project would be chosen to be featured as one of Kickstarter's Staff Picks, I don't know if I would have believed you.
There are currently over 6,900 live projects now and not only has our children's book project been chosen as a Staff Pick but also featured under New & Noteworthy projects!
Currently our project is Number 55 under New & Noteworthy projects --- an exciting thing considering the thousands of projects on Kickstarter!
As I have done a little research on Kickstarter Staff Picks this afternoon it appears that these are projects that Kickstarter guides others to when looking for good projects to emulate. They recommend good videos, clear messages, good incentives, clear descriptions of where the funds will be going. This makes sense to me since we have spent many hours doing research before launching our very first Kickstarter campaign.
As I've come across their tips, it is comforting knowing that we've done almost every single one of the items they mention to other Kickstarter project creators! Hard work, research, getting good advice, and goal setting has produced great results. Above all, we give glory to God! For without Him, our hands would not have been skilled to handle all these things. Thank you Lord!
