New Feature: Feedback on Project Preview
Share this post
Not sure if your project is ready to launch? Hard to tell if your rewards are intriguing? In times like these, it's always good to turn to your trusted friends. Sharing your project with friends before you launch is one of the best ways to get feedback. We've heard it time and time again from creators, and we know it from our own experience. We recently rolled out a new feature that lets creators do just that on the project preview.
Let's say you're working on a project and you're almost ready to submit, but you're not quite sure you're there yet. No worries, as you can share the project with your friends! All you need to do is generate the preview link for your project, which is as easy as clicking the blue "Get Preview Link." Once you do that, you'll notice that a new section for feedback appears.
When you share the preview link with friends, they are able to see exactly what the project will look like when it goes live. They can watch your video, check out your rewards, read your description and then leave feedback directly on the page. This can be anything from helping you brainstorm new rewards, to advising you to add photos of rewards to the project description, or even, dare we say, catching a typo in your project title! It's important to remember that you'll only want to share the preview link with people you want to get feedback from!
After your friends leave notes, you'll get an email or push notification on your phone (if you have the Kickstarter App for iPhone).
Once feedback has been left, it can be seen by other people you shared the preview link with. However, when you launch your project, the feedback on the page will go away.
As you're working on your next project, try it out! Send your friends the preview link, ask them what they think, see if they have any feedback, and take their advice! They likely want to see your project come to life as much as you do!
