Praise for J. Alexander Greenwood’s  Kickstarter Success Secrets:

J. Alexander Greenwood generously shares his experiences with Kickstarter. More than a guide to the process, this work is frank about pitfalls as well as the correct strategies he adopted. If you’re thinking about crowdfunding a creative project, this work is worth your time. ”

“Nice, succinct, to-the-point analysis by J. Alexander Greenwood. He covers his successful (and modest) campaign to fund a paperback issuance of his third novel, Pilate’s Ghost. On a 21-Day Kickstarter campaign timeline, he successfully raised over $1600 (hence the ‘modest’ reference).”

“Very good coverage of the successful factors he measured, as well as those that he would have changed. Most valuable was the social media marketing metrics he presents, and his take on the “tribal” outreach necessary to crowdsource funding successfully for at least minimal virality. Many thanks to the author!”
