We all have different answers for what we consider when looking at a crowdfunding project for the first time. I wrote about the top 10 things like to see here, but you might look at 10 completely different things. Daniel Zayas of the Meeple Mechanic, for example, has a rubric he uses when ranking tabletop Kickstarter projects.
So I’d love for you to tell me what you look at via the poll below. You can check as many of the options as you want, and feel free to suggest additions in the comments.
My goal is to learn about what backers look at so creators can make sure to focus on making those things as appealing as possible, while maybe spending less time and energy on things that backers rarely look at.
A few things to keep in mind:
- All Categories: This is a generic list that applies to all project categories, so I’m not looking to add any niche options to the list.
- Just Looking, No Qualifiers: This list just highlights what you physically look at when considering a project, not the qualifiers that go along with it.
- Imprecision: Yes, I understand that this is an inexact science and an eyetracking test would be better. I don’t have access to that. Or maybe I do and it knows that you’re reading this sentence right now. You’ll never know.
Word press has a limit to the number of options per poll, so I’ve broken it down into two polls: One for everything around the body of a project page, and one for the body itself.
Thanks for your help! I’m very curious to learn what you look at when you browse a project page for the first time.
