Our class had the privilege of interviewing Stephanie Perier from Kickstarter (ever heard of it?). If anyone could give us good advice for our upcoming campaigns it's her considering she made them all possible. She gave us advice ranging from how to make a good video for our champaign to how we can generate hype around our product. Crowd sourcing can be a very beneficial tool for upcoming entrepreneurs, but if you don't reach the right crowd it can be useless.
We got some great advice about making a video for our campaign as well. Stephanie stressed the importance of keeping things short and sweet. She told us that it should stay under two minutes long. Anything over that would become too long and people viewing it would loose interest.
