Seth Godin, regarding some interesting Kickstarter project statistics:
- It’s important to create inevitability around the projects you
launch, wherever you launch them.
- One way to appear inevitable is to set a lower minimum
threshold for success. Setting a huge number feels bold and
even macho, but it’s clear that your fans would prefer to pile
on after you’ve reached your goal, not sweat or be begged to be
sure you reach it in the first place.
I noticed that piling-on effect over the weekend with App.net’s fundkicker. (Via Alex Hillman.)
