I am looking for suggestions on the mid-campaign "slump" of support. How to gain exposure?

If you've done the advertising bit already, or that is simply not an option for you at the moment, try going to the owner of a popular blog or website focused on your project's theme or genre, and politely ask for the opportunity to grant an interview. Although your reception might be lukewarm at best with some, don't be discouraged. Be polite and exude confidence in your project, and keep hunting down more bloggers. If there's one thing I've learned about running and writing gaming blogs, its that content doesn't always write itself. Some bloggers eagerly look for new material, and now that your project has a few concrete successes by mid-campaign, they might be more willing to fill up an article or two with a good Q&A session! One other great way to help bump things up a little in the middle of your project is to take the comments and suggestions of your past and current backers, and deliver on the things that most of them seem to want! Suggestions from backers are usually genuine in nature, and give you the kind of marketing insight that most small businesses have to pay money to receive! Listen to your backers and fans, and deliver to them what they want! The feeling of project ownership they will get when you fulfill their requests will almost certainly open up their pockets just a little wider!Good luck on your project(s)!!

Where are the best places to publicize your kickstarter Film project?
Last activity on  |  5 answers
Hey Chris,My Kickstarter campaign for my film just ended this morning actually.  Because I didn't have a large network to rely on, I reached out to several people who I knew would want to promote the project through their larger networks.  They really liked the story and wanted to support the making of the feature film.  My personal project became personal for them.  They really wanted it to be successful and therefore they promoted independently of me.  I didn't have to push them.  Also, since Kickstarter is the largest crowdfunding platform, most of your non-local traffic of people looking to contribute will come through here.  But also, because of the fact that there are so many projects you have to find a way to make your's stand out.  I would really recommend shooting a proof of concept or putting some of your previous work on the project page.  People would rather give money to someone who is presenting examples of what their project will be like rather than just talking about what their project will be like.  For example, for my film, we made a proof of concept trailer on no budget.  Our argument was, "This is what we made with no money.  Imagine what we could make with your contribution".  So in more direct response to your question, I would say that Kickstarter really does provide a lot of non-local contributors.  You just have to find a way to make your film stand out from the others!
