 Final marketing tip from Brenna to new board game creators:

“Get another (or several!) sets of eyes on your campaign page. What may seem intuitive to you because you’re so familiar with the product may not come across clearly to someone else. While “design by committee” is not the goal, it’s important to be open to feedback and constructive criticism in the interest of optimizing your page.”
