It has been a few years since A Kickstarter’s Guide to Kickstarter was published and the crowd-funding world has changed a lot since then. There are more crowd-funding sites, more crowd-funders, and more write ups about the process. As a result I’ve begun to wonder what is the value of my guide over time? As information gets older does it become less valuable or, dare I say it, worthless?
After thinking about it for a while, I realized that as information ages it still retains some usefulness, but as the information becomes more widely available, it will most likely cost less to obtain. For example, people still read Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince which was written in 1505, but they probably aren’t paying much (or anything) for it because it.
This brings me to my guide. Even though it is a few years old, I believe it is still a great resource for anyone just getting into crowd-funding. However, now that there are so many other crowd-funding resources available, it seems unrealistic to charge the same price as I once did. If the guide contained some foolproof method for crowd-funding, then maybe, but it is just one resource among many. (I happen to think it is better then many of the resources out there, but that’s for you to decide.)
In conclusion, over the next couple years I will be gradually reducing the price of the E-book and Backer Editions. I’m doing this because of the abundance of crowd-funding information, not because I think the guide no longer has value. Thank you for visiting and I hope that the guide, and site, helps you bring your idea to life.
