Getting started

Your project can be anything that you want to create and share with others. It could be a book, a film, a piece of hardware... pretty much anything you dream up can find a home on Kickstarter. Just keep your project focused, with a clear end goal, and you’ll be good.

Every Kickstarter project should have the following:

  • A project page with a video and description that clearly explain the story behind your project

  • Rewards that backers will receive when the project is completed

  • Updates that share the creative journey as the project comes to life

Let’s go through these, one by one. We’ll get started with your project page — where you’ll tell people your story.
