Final marketing tip from David to new board game creators:
“Do your research! Get on Kickstarter and look at as many campaign videos and pages as you can, both successful and unsuccessful, to see what works and what doesn’t. And if video production or designing a page is out of your wheelhouse, look into hiring a professional to help.”
