KickStarter Power Users

I spend a lot of time studying KickStarters trying to learn new ideas, reward structures and best tips. There are some incredible guides on the internet. Make sure to read the tips at Stonemaier Games and James Mathe's blog (owner of Minion Games (which appears on the PowerKickers list below)). Definitely also join, read and participate at KickStarter Best Practices & Lessons Learned to get great advice on the building your KickStarter. But after looking through those, you will probably find that reading through actual KickStarters can really help give you ideas.

I wanted to review the KickStarters of the creators who have built multiple successful KickStarters so that I could see what they were doing to keep funding their KickStarters. I pulled together the top 30 Creators of mid-sized or larger projects based on number of funding projects with starting funding goals of $1,500 or more.

When using the site for research, try to find creators that are a similar size to yours. You probably do not have the massive customer base of some of these creators. Looking over creators of a similar size to your company will give you the best tips for building your own KickStarter story, video, rewards and stretch goals.

I hope having an easy way to find the KickStarter power users can aid in your quest to create your own successful KickStarter!
