Kickstarter is one of the most popular crowdfunding sites in the world, allowing tens of thousands of people to get the money necessary to put their ideas into practice. The company recently introduced a new feature, Kickstarter Live, that will support live video and help people promote their ideas better.
Apart from its marketing value, Kickstarted Live also allows backers to convince themselves that the idea they’re supporting is worth their money. In this manner, anyone who enrolled on Kickstarter with dishonest purposes will have little chances to get funded, unless they prove they’re serious about the idea they’re promoting.
Thanks to this tool, creators will be able to connect directly with backers via live streaming videos and offer the latter more information about the advancement of their project.
Over the past few months a select few creators have beta tested Kickstarter Live. They’ve used it to broadcast cooking shows, host live product demos, perform songs, play test games, rehearse a new play, countdown the final seconds of their campaign, and much more. It’s brought their communities closer together, their creativity into the light, and their projects hundreds of new backers.
Kickstarter Live brings creators and the people supporting them together, encouraging personal connection. Creators and backers can ask questions, chat, send selfies, select rewards, and watch how the whole project comes to life.
