In November 2013, we at Integreight launched a 30-days crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, to raise $10,000 for our product 1Sheeld, a new Arduino shield that allows you to use your smartphone as a re-configurable shield, we ended up getting $85,000 There a lot of homework before the campaign, a lot of do's and don'ts while executing your campaign, and a lot to follow up on after the campaign When crowd-funding a maker's product there are a lot of things to take in consideration, how to present your idea, how to shoot a video, design your rewards level, design your campaign page and gain the backers' trust.
