Is Kickstarter the best crowdfunding platform out there?

hi! Yes, Kickstarter is certainly the most well known. However any platform is only as good as the traffic you send to it, because on Kickstarter the community is not really the one making purchases but traffic you send to your project page. Even the viral projects we’ve run only tend to get a max of 15% of their backers from the platform. So you could ask - is an extra 15% number of backers, worth’s the 5% fee? Sometimes our clients just launch with self hosted e-commerce . To learn more, visit https://www.startmotionmedia.com/about/
