If you have wondered just how does Kickstarter work, check out the video above because Gil Hova has apparently cracked the code. His most recent project The Networks has recently funded for a little over $100,000. That’s four times its original goal! Gil shares what he’s learned using Kickstarter as a business & his top method for Kickstarter marketing & growing your audience by putting others first.


In this episode we talk about:

  • How to Kickstart a Game
  • Kickstarter as a Business
  • Topics to Study Before Launching
  • Marketing Your Kickstarter
