    Thank you for joining us Mike.

    Can you talk about how to build a meaningful relationship with your audience before–and between when–you have something to sell?

      But f’real, the more you engage and support others the faster you’ll build the know like and trust curve and have people support you when you’re ready

    How do you convince people to spend more money on a book on kickstarter rather than buy it for less at a con or through amazon/your website?

      So we covered this on the discussion but for those who didn’t see – Kickstarter is a place for people who want MORE and want to be INVOLVED in the process, including simply supporting. So you don’t have to convince them all. They know what they’re there for.

    How do you track the analytics behind your campaign and how important are your video views and percentage completed to you

    How important is it to set up the pre-campaign page to allow for followers to be made aware of when the Kickstarter goes live

      The Pre Campaign page is huge – set it up 2 weeks prior and direct audience there

      I’d almost tell you to have the book done 100% because then you can fulfill and immediately get the next campaign going

    How do you decide how much to ask for from the campaign to make sure you get enough but don’t ask for too much that you can’t succeed

    What are the top five things you feel have to be complete and ready to go before starting a kickstarter?

    How/When do you decide to start or join an indie comic studio?

    When did you prioritize art as a career and what do you say to people who are afraid of giving their art priority over their day job?

    Thanks,

    D Alley, the Redheadeded.

    Do you believe you’re breathing rarified air with your success or that what you’ve attained is accessible to others?
