Gary Tyrrell over at the webcomics commentary site Fleen has taken a look at a few significant (and successful) webcomics Kickstarter campaigns to see if there were any correlations between them. Although his sample size is extremely small, and he left out Order of the Stick as an outlier, there are two important takeaways. I’ll quote:
“…there’s a sweet spot for rewards in about the US$25 – US$75 range, and unless you’re dealing with a metric crapload of supporters with an essentially free cost to fulfill rewards, don’t try for success on the low end.”
Very good to know!
