it’s been a crazy week! between the excitement of launching the campaign and trying to keep up with outreach, i’m happy it’s the weekend. more time to draw, and more emails to send.
a weekend update with some kickstarter insiders:
kickstarter is really cool. it gives you all sorts of analytics and cool information on your campaign so you can see where your donations are coming from. it’s hard to track and analyze data after only 4 days, but it still helps.
here’s some snippets of what it shows me:
(this shows that i’m already 62% funded! crazy.)
kickstarter also shows me cool information on where my backers are coming from. whether they were referred from kickstarter, through external search, or direct traffic.
i set up my kickstarter url with a bit.ly link – so you can just click: bit.ly/ifeelweird (rather than… http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1630774234/i-feel-weird-a-book-of-drawings-by-georgia/dashboard)
bit.ly is also really cool because you can track the link, to see how many clicks it has gotten:
(so i’ve gotten 378 clicks total, mostly on launch day.)
i can then compare that with how many people watched my video:
it’s nice every once in awhile to try to take an outsiders perspective on all of this data so i can focus. it pushes me to continue to move full speed ahead on outreach and trying to expand my audience.
i still have more to raise! and i still have a lot more books i want to get out there.
